Name: Speed Racer/Go Mifune (Japan)
Where You've Seen Him: Speed Racer
His Story: Speed Racer wants to race, but his father forbids him from doing so. He eventually goes on to race, however, and finds himself in a series of adventures, including racing against the mysterious Racer X.
Why He's So Memorable: Again, an early example of an anime becoming popular in both Japan and the United States, Speed Racer/Go Mifune values his family above all else. He gets into all kinds of adventures involving all types of criminals. And he's a snazzy dresser.
