Cartoon Saturday: Pole Position
Nothing says exciting television than another cartoon made from a video game. This time it's Pole Position!
Now, in case you were wondering, the Pole Position is the inside, front row position on a race track...the best spot. The Pole Position cartoon was about a bunch of stunt driving teenage special agents taking on the family legacy and hunting down the bad guys in their super cars. Oh, and one of these super cars talked and had the cool name of Roadie.
I always thought that Pole Position had a very Speed Racer vibe about it. From the tricked out cars to the helmet visors, it's really similar. However, while I always sort of felt Speed Racer's them song was lame, the Pole Position song rocked. And I can hear it to this day.
