4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Packaging and No Extras May 29 2005
By N. Lim - Published on Amazon.com

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not so much a review, but correcting errors made by the site May 29 2005
By Aaron Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great cartoons, but DVD has some deficiencies Aug. 27 2005
By Valnastar - Published on Amazon.com
The cartoons are terrific, cheesy or both depending on your point of view, but they're pure Speed Racer so if you like nostalgia or sharing these old cartoons with your children, be sure to add this to your collection. I would give this set a higher rating just for the cartoons, but the packaging is a real issue for this volume in the Speed Racer collection, hence my 3-star rating.

All the problems with this release relate to the packaging, which does not live up to the quality and inventiveness of the previous two volumes. The packaging does not adequately protect the DVD and the fact that there are no extras is a real shame. It would be GREAT if the producers of this DVD collection would put the orginal Japanese version of the theme song and opening titles on one of these volumes as an extra feature. Instead, there are no extras at all, fun or not, on this release.

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.
