I've known for years. I mean...I thought everyone did, not to sound rude or anything. Even my parents knew, they watched it when they were younger and were actually the ones who told me.

As for me, I didn't know it was an anime when I first watched it (heck! I didn't even know what anime was 'period' back then).

I don't remember the exact date, but it was back when the video rental shops still rented VHS tapes (if that says anything about how long ago it was).

It was just a tape that had the episodes the Car Hater and The Race Against the Mammoth Car (both parts 1 and 2) and it just sounded like a cool, if old-school, show (along with all the other anime I watched before DBZ*; when I first officaly learned about anime).

But one day, between learning about anime and today, I found out about Speed Racer being an anime...then that bit of info was 'sent to storage'. But when the new live-action Speed Racer movie was announced, I suddenly remembered it's original title and learned (re-learned?) several other things.

BTW, I believe this paticular series is seriously due for a re-introduction...In the form of a subtitled version of the original Japanese series. "Mach GoGoGo!" FTW!

*=Here's a list of the aforementioned other anime (The English Titles at least)...
Salior Moon
Ronin Warriors
Samurai Pizza Cats

Speed Racer goes way back to the 1960's and the original title was Mach GO GO GO.
the title stank and changed to Speed Racer when it was aired in U.S. T.V.
