I loved this show and was gratified to see it held up so well when I got the show on DVD.  Itís a great concept for kids in that a race inherently has the potential for a fast pace.  Or at least the illusion of a fast pace!

Of all the old shows that can be revived, I think this one would be a good candidate. Get real comedy writers, but an animation team that can use modern techniques to show a hell of a race.

I'd be up for that, Tim!

There has been a modern comic (Marvel) which I think presents a gritty version of the concept, much like the gritty version of Scooby-Doo that they are publishing. I haven't read any of those titles, though.

When this was airing on Boomerang in the morning, we got my son to chart the winners as a way to get him used to writing stuff down.  He loved tracking the winners.

That's a great anecdote, Steven.
