Unique Packaging and No Extras May 29 2005
By N. Lim - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Unlike the first Speed Racer DVD in the series, this third installment comes with absolutely no extras. I watched the whole thing. It just has the episodes. If you have the first two, this one is more of the same.

The packaging for this DVD is unique. Instead of a traditional DVD case, the disk comes in a round, steel container. Inside is a piece of foam to protect the disk from scratching. During shipping, the disk rattles around in the container, which I think may still scratch the disk. The container sits on top of an open piece of cardboard box. The whole thing is shrink-wrapped to keep it all together.

Excitement, Fun, and good role models for Girls and Boys May 16 2008
By C. Wallis Davenport - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Speed Racer was one of my fav cartoons as a little girl, and so I naturally bought the series for my own 6 year old daughter. Need I tell you she loves it?

These are exciting stories, terrific animation, and I feel I should say that it offers good role models for women. Many of the women in Speed Racer are daredevils themselves, and Trixie always stood up tall in her role as well. Speed Racer does have somewhat of a violent undertone (that my mother hated), but I feel it's no worse than any other cartoon violence you have seen anywhere else. It doesn't seem at all gratuitous, either, but is used to carry the story.

I loved the names of the characters, too. In the first episode of this Vol. (#24), we meet Prince Jam, Prince Sac-Charin, and further references to sugary sweets in the names. I think this adds to the charm and also makes Speed Racer equally fun for the adult viewer.

My favorite episode of all times is on this Vol. - Man on the Lam. It starts out with a man escaping from prison, and then meeting a blind little girl. A few twists and a surprise ending are in this story. Holds up well over time! I think if you grew up on Speed Racer, you will enjoy watching this again, and introducing it to your own kids, either boys or girls.

Not the same quality as the first 2 seasons June 23 2005
By Spookie - Published on Amazon.com
Just a short feedback. I have the first 2 discs, their quality is OK, given the fact that this is an old cartoon. The second package is brilliant, very nice with the musical cover.

But this one, what a mess. Lousy package and bad video quality. What happened? The picture is not sharp, there are artifacts and the video is somewhat degraded. Are the originals ruined or did they just change the supplier, to a cheap and low quality one?

As I don't see anyone complaining, I wonder if I had bad luck and my disc is defective.

Please, if someone else reads this and agrees, please leave a feedback, so others can know about the quality before buying.

In any case, it was good to see those episodes once more. I hope they do better in the next volume.

Speed RULES!!! --- but WHERE ARE THE JAPANESE EXTRAS?! Sept. 14 2005
By Dadio - Published on Amazon.com
Speed Racer was my favorite cartoon growing up. I would pass up an after school KickBall game to watch Speed and the Coolest Car on Earth. I always laughed myself onto the floor watching Spritle's tears spraying out like a fountain. These cartoons were crude ... but they had a unique character and spirit that made refined art, sound, and production irrelevant. In fact the mismatched mouth movements (seemingly due to more than translation) and coarse animation only added to it's unique charm. I've waited a long time for a collection like this.

HOWEVER, I agree with other reviewers in that Lion's Gate should include the ORIGINAL JAPANESE theme song, and it would be GREAT to have a whole episode in Japanese as it aired in Japan. That would make this a much better collection.

Also, they should put forth some effort to improve the video quality. I have a VHS tape that provides better image quality. It's as if they are not using original masters. However, it's not BAD by any means.

Not so much a review, but correcting errors made by the site May 29 2005
By Aaron Miller - Published on Amazon.com
I am a big fan of Speed Racer and I have managed to get volumes 1 - 3 and the "movie," so, you can just assume I'm in love with this edition. Actually, I would have to say that the episodes in this volume get much better than the previous editions. They finally begin to slightly develop Racer X's character.

Anywho, the amazon speed racer vol 3 site says that it has 3 disks at 600 minutes. It only comes with one disk, and is only 300 minutes. also, the box art picture on the page is incorrect. The disk itself is inside a circular tin, which comes with a posterboardish stand.

Anywho, those are the corrections. I'd advise anyone to look into this volume, especially if you are already a fan.

PS I understand the guideline states not to point out mistakes and such, however, I already emailed you guys at amazon, and you haven't fixed them, yet.
