THE RACE AROUND THE WORLD

So like the awesome Speed Racer dork that I am, I FINALLY decided to watch the last episode. No spoiler cut since this show finished in like. 1968. :/

And. omg. I love this cartoon so much.

  • THEY RACE IN SUBMARINES. TRUCKS. SHIPS. YACHTS.  PLANES. Clearly if you can drive a car, you're qualified to drive anything.
  • I like how it takes Speed a grand total of ten seconds of moping on the deserted island to go, "HEY WE COULD BUILD A RAFT TO GET OUT OF HERE" Oh speed you're wonderful.
  • Oh. GOD. The mean racers plowed down the penguins! That's DESPICABLE!!!
  • Speed is like the ultimate sexist out there. "I knew she was a girl when we shook hands. Her hands were soft!" Please note that  both Speed and Lovelace were wearing gloves. So. THIS DOESN'T MAKE SENSE (I love Speed Racer)
  • Oh. Oh my god. A giant car-sucking tornado. O-Oh my GOD.
  • I LOVE THE RANDOM RACER X CAMEO. Best stalker-brother ever.
  • It's highly appropriate that Sparky knows that Speed is a dumbass. "SPEED STOP HELPING OUR COMPETITORS" But Speed? Is dumb and doesn't listen to Sparky. :( poor Sparky.
  • So. The Mach Five's gas runs out. Racer X like the INCREDIBLE DOUCHE that he is, finds them in the MIDDLE of the Russian nowhere (actual quote. Sparky calls it the Russian nowhere.) and lectures Speed on what a DUMBASS DRIVER HE IS and how HE FAILS SO MUCH. And drives off. gg bro.
  • SPEED TAKES THIS WITH TRAUMA AND CRIES AND THROWS A TANTRUM OMG.
  • Then they realize Racer X left them with a gallon of gasoline on the ground.
  • In other words? BEST STALKERY DOUCHE BROTHER EVER!!!! Speed emotears for Racer X again.
  • THE MACH FIVE CAN JUMP ON MOVING BOATS.
  • Okay I kinda ship Lovelace/Speed. Too bad Speed is gay for racing.
  • SO Speed wins the race, becomes a world champion racer and Lovelace and her dad make up in TRUE SPEED RACER FASHION I love this show so much.
  • OH GOD SPARKY AND SPEED RIDE OFF INTO THE SUNSET. AND THEY LEFT SPRITLE AND CHIM CHIM WITH TRIXIE. HOW GAY CAN YOU GET?!
  • Also Racer X just luv watching over his brother. Seriously. He's always THERE. WATCHING. STALKING.
I'm sad that it ends with "SEE THE NEXT EXCITING EPISODE OF SPEED RACER!!!" and there is none. I feel kinda cheated ;;
I kind of want to see a picture of what this Russian Nowhere looks like. And also to see Racer X get apped, but mostly the first.
It's a pretty deserted place! In the middle of nowhere!

AND YET RACER X CAN FIND THEM. He has Speed radar.
Stalking brothers is a very important part of a racer's day, donchano?! Every successful racer does it!
Experience Speed would have if he'd actually studied for his Professional Stalker's license.
Which is why he'll never locate and properly stalk his own elder brother.
I. I need to watch this episode. If for nothing else than for some Racer X lovin.

And Speed...is a woobie. He may be a naive woobie, but he is still a woobie and therefore must be cuddled.
He's incredibly douchey in this episode. I kinda died on the spot.

GOD HE THREW THE MOST AWESOME TEMPER TANTRUM EVER I was like o speed I love you even if you act like you're three.
I'M GONNA BE ON A TOUR TOMORROW FOR 2-3 DAYS, THEN WILL BE IN HONG KONG FOR A BIT BEFORE GOING TO GUANGZHOU. COME SEE ME IN GUANGZHOU, WE'LL GO SHOPPING AND FAIL AT BARGAINING/WATCH MY MOM BE BADASS WHEN IT COMES TO BARGAINING. T^Tb
Whootness!

Hm, I'm trying to think of a way to contact you, as I dunno if I'll have net over where I am, since I'm in the library right now. And the tourist place m'going to might not accept lj. :/
I love yoooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuu~~~
Okay! I shall see if I can go to my uncle's company tonight to check out my e-mail. At worst, I shall try to steal the nets tonight, but it will be iffy. Like really iffy. Like "the nets hate me very very much and make me want to chuck my laptop out the seventh floor window" iffy. :[
