    OMG- all these decades later and I discover that the Cavemen weren't called "The Slide Brothers" at all (not that that ever made any sense). I know the industrial meaning of the word, but does slag not have the same slang meaning in the US as it does in Britain!?

    Do anyone know who was music producer or names of soundtracks used in cartoon ?

    At 6:58 I teared up a little. "Hear that music & come running out with your bowl of cereal."…. Although the general consent these days is that the world is going to **, I guess I'd rather enjoy golden moments like remembering what this made me feel like as a kid. I can't imagine what my grandparents would think of the world today, but I know they enjoyed watching this with me & it gave us all smiles. I hope anyone who had anything to do with this that's still around knows that there are those of us still out there who appreciate it.

    My favorite racers are: 1. the Gruesome Twosome in the Creepy Coupe #2, because this race car is Halloween related. 2. Penelope Pitstop in the Compact Pussycat #5, because she is a very beautiful, sweet and cute Southern belle. And 3. Peter Perfect in the Turbo Terrific #9, because he's Penelope's hero. I think Peter and Penelope are made for each other.

    I remember watchin this one anime caled Asobi ni Iku Yo!, and at one part there was this one dog and he laughed like Muttley. I remember freaking out over it and literally screaming, "Holy shit! IT'S MUTTLEY!!!"
