Watch Speed Racer: The Next Generation

Speed Racer: The Next Generation is an American, animated, action-adventure series that aired on the cable network Nicktoons. The show is an update to the 1960s Japanese-produced series Speed Racer. Several decades have passed since the original Speed ruled the racetrack, and he has disappeared to protect his family from the evildoers he encountered during his career. When the series begins we find another teenager named Speed heading to the prestigious Racing Academy, founded by the Racer family. Though he has dreams of becoming a famous race car driver like his namesake, Speed has to compete with X, the best racer in the school and a known son of the original Speed Racer.

Speed Jr. eventually learns he too is Speed Sr.'s son, making him X's brother. As the series progresses the two join together to get through Racing Academy as well as find their father. They're joined by other students at the academy - Lucy is the studios one who has a crush on Speed; Conor is the mechanic of the gang and the creator of the robotic Chim-Chim, which is based on the chimpanzee once owned by Spritle Racer, the academy's headmaster; Annalise Zazic, a former girlfriend of X and rival of Speed Jr., also warms up to the group. Another member of the team, though not human, is the Mach 6, which is an update to Speed Racer's Mach 5 race car of the original series.

Created by Larry Schwarz, Speed Racer: The Next Generation is a production of Animation Collective and Toonz Entertainment, with distribution from Lionsgate Television. It premiered on Nicktoons in April of 2008 and ended in November of 2011 with a total of 41 aired episodes.
