This isn't strictly a Retro release, but I wasn't sure where else to put it.
Anyone know who has the rights to this series on Region 4 DVD?
I've seen parts of the first episode. It's a nice homage to the original series.

There is no sign of a local release, so far.

wasn't this an online series? I could have sworn the creators had it up in flash on their site. The show definitely "feels" like a fanmade flash animation...


Official Site yeah, ok. I can't find anything there now. Its obviously not Free and being Lionsgate I doubt it ever was. Strange, until 3 mintues ago I was positive this was an unofficial American made FanMade Flash Series. Ah well. Learn something every day.

I still say it looks like a Flash Series tho... StrongBad is better. Razz

Is the online one you're thinking of where the main character was now female and it really felt more like a sort of Wacky Races show than Speed Racer? Because that one was made by the Japanese.

Not impressed by Speed Racer: Next Gen. To much like a kids show. But, then I did see it on Cartoon Network.

i'm not impressed with the next gen either - i tend to change the station when it come on, even though my son would sit there and watch it, i find it...for lack of a better word - boring....
