Semi-Funny Story: When I was at the Anime Expo convention in L.A. a few
years ago, the convention organizers used the hotel's cable system to show
various animation in raw japanese. I was flipping channels on the TV in my
hotel room and ran into Speed Racer. At first I wondered why they had
chosen to show something so old. A moment later I realized the dialouge was
being shown in Spanish rather than Japanese. Instead of looking at the
hotel cable channel, I was seeing one of L.A.'s Spanish language TV stations
