This spring, it's time to rev up. Speed Racer is not only getting a feature film this May, but now also its own animated series, Speed Racer: The Next Generation, on Nicktoons.

The new series will feature Señor Speed in his teenage years, when he arrives at the racing academy to get in gear. He has friends, enemies (and maybe even frenemies, if it's like real high school), and a headmaster in Mr. Sprittle, who will be voiced by the original Speed from the show's U.S. version, Peter Fernandez.

Speed's 'toon version will get viewers' engines going with a 90-minute premiere (May 2, 7 pm/ET), followed by 30-minute eps on Fridays thereafter. Do you have a kid (or kid inside) who's getting revved up for the Next Generation? - Anna Dimond
