PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING CORRECTIONS:
The American dubbed version of this 1967 Japanese show ran for decades with this opening: note the Trans-Lux logo at the beginning, now gone, and the old Speed Racer logo. End credits, with original font, also included. When the show was remastered by a new owner of the property around 1990, the Trans-Lux logo was removed and the other details noted above were changed.

More detailed history:
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.
