Speed Racer Goes Crazy

(via) A skillful reworking of existing audio and footage from the old Speed Racer cartoons, in which, as it says on the label, Speed Goes Crazy...

When I was a kid, probably not much older than Georgia is now, I loved the Speed Racer cartoon. I could only watch it, though, when my mom wasn't around. Like The Three Stooges, it was forbidden when she was in the house, because of the frequent violence. As a kid, I thought she was nuts, but looking back now, rewatching old Speed Racer episodes... yeesh, but a lot of people die in those things.

My other favorite show at the time was The Rifleman, though, about a family man forced by circumstance almost every week to solve problems with his rifle, so I may have had a bit of a thing for televised violence, at that...

The Wachowski bros certainly put a lot of effort into making Speed Racer... the movie overall looked and felt like a cross between anime, a kaleidoscope, that Flintstones movie, a video game and the Dukes of Hazard
