It's funny when he jumps over the elephants!
The way it happened made it look like he did it explicitly to piss the elephants off.

If this were made today, Speed would be a 9-year-old girl with blue hair, purple eyes, and nonhuman ears. The amount of vehicular homicide in the show would stay the same, and I think that's what matters.
Speed Racer wasn't normal. It was about a guy who cheated at racing and no one cared. "My car has a buzzsaw and oil slicks and a smoke screen and can jump and go underwater, but I won this race fair and square!"
...ah, back when if a vehicle blew up in a cartoon, it sometimes meant its passenger/operator was fuckin' DEAD. None of that gay-ass G.I. Joe parachute stuff here.
His car makes a NYUK-NYUK-NYUK sound when it jumps. He leaps out of the car in bullet time. He launches over some elephants just for the hell of it.

I like the way the little shit smiles after destroying a priceless dinosaur skeleton.

SO MUCH XYLOPHONE!
What surprises me is that the music is basically the same as the English version, but with a differently jazzy first few bars. Not any more or less jazzy, just jazzy in a different way.
