Saturday Morning Cartoons #3 “Speed Buggy”

Let's talk Speedy Buggy. I loved this show, it was great. So say it was just a Scooby Doo remake, but I think it held it's own. I remember when I was almost sixteen my cousin had a dune buggy that looked just like Speedy, but it was black. I wanted to buy it from he so bad, it was street legal, but I didn't have a job so I didn't have the money to buy it. I would still love to have one. Let's hear your memories of Speedy. Happy tooning.

    Aw yeah! I loved me some Speed Buggy when I was little. I was too young to watch it during it’s first run, but when I was 5 or 6, it was bundled together with some other cartoons in a show called “The Hannah-Barbera Power Hour” on Saturday mornings on the local syndication channel. The days when Speed Buggy was one of the cartoons they showed–those were good days.

    (Disclaimer: I don’t think my parents would agree that those were “good days”)

    One of many Scooby Doo clones, really. But somehow they were all good, and all childhood favorites. Tinker stands out as one of my favorite “Shaggy knock-offs.” His accent still stands out to me, and i was always fond of mechanically inclined characters.

    I never viewed Speed Buggy as a Scooby-Doo clone, that show that really stands out for me as a Scooby clone was JabberJaw

    I don’t remember all that much of Speedy, but what I can recall is a pretty fun show. Let’s face it any show with a talking car will enthrall kids, especially if the car’s voice is as funny as Speedy’s was.

  5. I always liked how Speed Buggy would “tip toe” when he was trying to be sneaky.

    I agree with Cavalry Red. It’s in the Scooby-mold, but better than many of them.

    I fully agree that it held it’s own, but there were a lot of Scooby clones. When I was young I didn’t know that they were clones, I just liked the shows, it was the way cartoons were back then.
