YMMV: Turbo
  • Awesome Art: The TV series has Titmouse Inc. as production team, and thus has a much higher grade of animation quality than one might expect from a Netflix series.
  • Awesome Music: Snoop Dogg's "Let The Bass Go" during the credits.
  • Ear Worm: "That Snail Is Fast."
    • Turned to be The Most Annoying Sound for many an internet reviewer however. Some even put it on their "Worst of..." list just BECAUSE of the song.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: White Shadoooooww......
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The plot of the movie is similar to that of a Cyanide and Happiness short where a man develops Super Speed before trying to race in the Indy 500.
    • Sonic the Hedgehog inspired this film. Enough said.
    • A villain in Wreck-It Ralph is named Turbo ... who is a racer and has similar ambitions to Turbo. They're both portrayed as protagonists in from where they're from. Turbo is the hero in his Turbo Time game, while he's the main villain of the movie.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: A studio example; a lot of the interest in Turbo F.A.S.T. generates from Motorcity fans, since the former runs off a similar concept, animation style and even production team as the latter.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Gagne crosses it when he actually tries to kill Turbo during the race.
  • Memetic Mutation: "I wish I was fast."
  • So Okay, It's Average: This is what the general response from critics seems to be. They see it as a fairly paint-by-numbers animated kid's movie, but also think that it's charming enough to be enjoyable with a welcome and overdue focus on the Latin-American community with the human characters.
