    According to http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/ Speed Racer Season 1 will be released 18th Febuary 2003 for $22.98 though I don't think the price is correct?

    As I stated in the news item I wrote there, the news comes straight from the latest issue of Video Store Magazine, pretty much word-for-word. They seem to have been posting what Artisan told them. If there is an error, it is between Artisan and VSM. [​IMG]
    I thought that the price seemed a bit low myself, until I recalled that there are only 17 episodes in Season 1:
    • 1. 1-1 The Great Plan
      2. 1-2 Challenge Of The Masked Racer
      3. 1-3 The Secret Engine
      4. 1-4 The Race Against The Mammoth Car
      5. 1-5 The Most Dangerous Race
      6. 1-6 Race For Revenge
      7. 1-7 The Desperate Desert Race
      8. 1-8 The Fire Race
      9. 1-9 Girl Daredevil
      10. 1-10 The Fastest Car On Earth
      11. 1-11 Mach Five vs. Mach Five
      12. 1-12 The Royal Racer
      13. 1-13 The Car Hater
      14. 1-14 Race Against Time
      15. 1-15 The Snake Track
      16. 1-16 The Man On The Lam
      17. 1-17 Gang Of Assassins
    Considering that each show is at most 24 minutes long, then you see that this price point is not a problem at all. Compare, for instance, to Mad About You. [​IMG]

    Great news! I just picked up one DVD from R4 Australia, containing: 8. 1-8 The Fire Race
    9. 1-9 Girl Daredevil
    10. 1-10 The Fastest Car On Earth
    and it is great stuff -- I had a BLAST watching Girl Daredevil. I'm guessing it will be too much to ask for the Japanese language track to be included, but I'm still very happy!

    I am SO going to buy this. Can't wait, Speed Racer was always my favorite cartoon.

    Cool. I will pick up a copy of Speed Racer Season 1 when it comes out. I haven't seen Speed Racer in years.

    My son and I have been catching the NEW episodes each weekend on Nickelodian. Needless to say, it's REALLY making me miss the original. Great timing!!!
