Speed Racer passes away

Sad day for Racer fans.

Peter Fernandez, who voiced the iconic character in the American import of the 1960s Japanese cartoon and who also wrote the lyrics to the indelible theme song, has died.

He succumbed to lung cancer at 83, according to the Anime News Network .

And of course, who could forget that theme song?

Go Speed Racer Go!
