->''"Who put the antifreeze into my carburetor?"''

Creator/HannaBarbera created this SaturdayMorningCartoon, one of several based on the ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' formula, for Creator/{{CBS}} in 1973. Throughout the rest of the decade, ''Speed Buggy'' rotated among the three networks' schedules.

Speed Buggy was a talking dune buggy, apparently the grandson of Chugaboom from ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop''. When his mechanic, Tinker, wasn't driving him in a race, Speed Buggy fought crime with Tinker and his friends, Mark and Debbie. Speed Buggy also crossed over to ''Scooby-Doo'' and ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''.

The voice talent comprised Creator/MelBlanc as Speed Buggy, Creator/MichaelBell as Mark, Arlene Golonka as Debbie and Phil Luther Jr. as Tinker.

!!This series provides examples of:
* BoardGame: Yep, [[http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/27742/speed-buggy-game it had one]]. The box art shows Mark with blond hair.
* CatchPhrase:
** Tinker's "Gol-LY!"
** Also, Speed Buggy's "Va-room-a-zoom-zoom!" and "Roger dodger!"
* {{Crossover}}:
** ''Scooby's All-Star WesternAnimation/LaffALympics'' -- Tinker and Speedy played for the Scooby Doobies.
** ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdman'' -- Tinker, Mark, Debbie and Speedy appeared in an episode.
** Speed Buggy appeared as the CrossoverPunchline on the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode "Bravo-Dooby-Doo".
** A toy Speed Buggy appears in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Gettin' Twiggy With It".
** Speed Buggy is one of the sidekicks in episode 14 of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. Earlier than that, Scooby and Speedy met in the 1973 ''New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode "The Weird Winds of Winona".
* {{Expy}}: Mark, Debbie and (especially) Tinker bear a passing resemblance to [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo Fred, Daphne and Shaggy]].
** Speed Buggy sounds suspiciously like [[Radio/TheJackBennyProgram the Maxwell]] if it could talk.
* HandyRemoteControl: Speed Buggy can be forcibly controlled by a special remote control of Tinker's design.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Particularly given his signature catch phrase, Tinker's voice sounded exactly like the Jim Nabors character from ''Series/TheAndyGriffithShow''.
* RaceLift: In ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode crossover, "The Weird Winds of Winona", Mark's skin darkens significantly. Apparently the character was intended to be of Native American descent but you wouldn't tell by how they colored him for the whole original series. So without this AllInTheManual information, the viewer might as well assume he got a very bad suntan before the crossover.
* SentientVehicle
* ShesGotLegs: While Debbie is usually drawn in pants, in the Amazon episode, she proves she can compete with the other HB girls.
* VerbalTic: The various automotive "sputtering" Speed Buggy makes.
* WackyRacing: Well, what did you expect?
