There was a American-made Speed Racer cartoon in [[TheNineties the early '90s]] titled ''The New Adventures of Speed Racer'', which wasn't well-received. Four years later, there was [[Anime/SpeedRacerX a Japanese-made remake in 1997 with updated versions of the characters and vehicles, but numerous changes to its source material]]. Its English adaptation was produced by Creator/{{DIC}} and titled ''Speed Racer X'', but was short-lived thanks to a lawsuit between DIC and the American-based Speed Racer Enterprises.

The show is notable for being one of the very first anime localized in English for US television, all the way back in 1967, following only ''Anime/AstroBoy'' and ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion''. It was by far the most successful and well-known series for decades, and practically ''defined'' anime (or "Japanimation", as it was known at the time) in America until around the mid-90s.
