YMMV / Speed Buggy

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: On one extent Speed Buggy is one of the few cartoons that can say it aired on all three of the major networks, and two of them only as re-runs. This alone practically makes the show an ensemble favorite to Hanna Barbera as a whole. For a one season show to be re-ran that much, just speaks to how well he was received.
  • Shipping: To the usual Hanna Barbera subtext.
    • Mark and Debbie are usually assumed to be the defacto couple. After all they were designed with matching outfits with altering colors.
    • You can find some people who think Debbie and Tinker work better together but far less than Debbie and Mark.
    • A background Cross Over Ship from HB's Shared Universe is to pair Tinker with Googie from Scooby-Doo! and the Reluctant Werewolf who dated Shaggy when he himself was a race car driver.
    • There's also Mata Cari for Speedy whom he fell in love with when she was a fake. But the end of the episode may imply she has some sentience of her own.
  • Technology Marches On: Most cars don't usually have carburetors (referenced in the intro) these days.note 
  • "Weird Al" Effect: On the internet you may see some comments on other cartoons featuring dune buggies as "having a Speed Buggy". At the time Speed Buggy was made the dune buggy was having it's high point as a fad. Many of the meddling kids show have dune buggies because they were cool to the kids of the day. Speed Buggy was himself only taking advantage of that. But since that fad is less remembered today some younger people think they were following off Speed Buggy. This is essentially the car version of people calling the Harlequin costume, the Harley Quinn costume.
