Pole Position

[loosely] Based on the 1982 Namco arcade game of the same name, it's 1984's Pole Position!

This is a [sunbleached on the front] large format box, for some reason. The tape is in a thin black tray. 

I really loved this show. I don't know if it was the original 1984 run I watched, or the 1986 re-runs, or both.

Anyway, it has everything: cool cars (which function as far more than just cars!), action, peril, a cute animal, etc... I think kids today would love it, but if they remade it, you just know it would be typical ho hum CGI. :p

Here's the intro:

    1. Yes, pretty much. ;) More crime fighting for the sake of crime fighting rather than 'Speed just happens to fight crime in this episode.' The game it's based off of is strictly racing, so they had to add a lot of elements to it. The talking computers were a big part, probably influenced by Knight Rider and/or Twiki.
