Western Animation: Speed Buggy
"Who put the antifreeze into my carburetor?"

Hanna-Barbera created this Saturday Morning Cartoon, one of several based on the Scooby-Doo formula, for 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 The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. 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 Johnny Bravo.

The voice talent comprised Mel Blanc as Speed Buggy, Michael Bell as Mark, Arlene Golonka as Debbie and Phil Luther Jr. as Tinker.
