On the TV show Seinfeld, there was a famous episode about Elaine not being able to obtain her favorite contraceptive sponges. That made making the ones she had count, and she would gauge potential suiters by their “sponge worthiness.” Well, we all know that Speed Racer would have been sponge worthy, after all he’s a demon on wheels.
He was also apparently worthy of the band Sponge, who knocked out a cover of the Speed Racer theme song for the 1995 album, Saturday Morning Cartoons’ Greatest Hits. Check it out after the jump and see if you think it’s Speed worthy.
