Missed #10. I had it narrowed down to the bottom two, I knew that Tinker was Speed Buggy's mechanic (and Shaggy's cousin), but I guessed Speed Racer and I was wrong. I don't watch Crapanimation, Only American Cartoons.

Japanese animation is just fine if you would give it a chance. I liked "Tobor the 8th Man" and "Marine Boy".

There's some great Japanese animation that aired in the U.S. in the late 70's/early 80's. Starblazers, Battle of the Planets, Robotech, Voltron , and yes, even The Transformers, while produced by Marvel & Sunbow, was animated by Japanese company Toei.

13/13. I never watched "Transformers", but the phrase "main characters" - the plural - gave me the answer.

Foiled again! Sparkplug Witwicky got me LOL

I almost stuck on that one; the giveaway to the answer was in the statement "whose main characters could use a good mechanic." The plural told me which it was.
