Artisans Family Home Entertainment (FHE) has released the entire first season of the animated cult phenomenon known as Speed Racer. The limited collectors edition DVD contains the first 11 of the 52 classic episodes in the original series.
Speed Racer follows the adventures of a young racecar driver who, along with his girlfriend Trixie, his two brothers and one mischievous monkey, always manages to put the breaks on villainous plots.
The 300 minutes of high-octane action and adventure include extra features like interactive Mach 5 control demonstrations, a theme song sing-along, production notes and a villains gallery. Another noteworthy feature is the packaging, which incorporates real tire rubber complete with tread.
The digitally mastered Speed Racer Limited Collectors Edition DVD is presented in full screen with Dolby Monaural Audio and retails for the suggested price of $22.98.
