This is how the open looked before the show was remastered circa 1990. Note the Trans-Lux logo at the beginning, now gone, and the old Speed Racer logo. End credits, with original font, also included.

Previously I didn't overtly summarize the history of the show in this description because I knew those watching it would know it already and wouldn't need to be told. And that was true...but frequently visitors do not afford me the same assumed knowledge and just have to post "corrections". So, for the record, here it is: it was a 1967 Japanese show called Mach GoGoGo (adapted from a manga) that was later imported to the US and elsewhere and ran all through the 70s and 80s.

After being syndicated on aging and muddy 16mm dubs all those years, around 1990 a new owner of the franchise remastered the show onto video from the original elements, and thus had to rebuild the English version of the opening, at which time the logo was updated, credits redone, and reference to the original licensor, Trans-Lux, removed.

There.
