Turbo Teen Ep. 1 – “Turbo Thieves”

Let’s get weird.

Fellow ’80s teens have probably used therapy to block memories of Turbo Teen, but it’s time to rip the Band-Aid off the boo-boo.

Yes, there really was a Saturday morning cartoon — 13 episodes in ’84 — about a kid who gets zapped by a molecular beam, becoming a “living” car.

Suck it Knight Rider — this kid would watch his insides twist around his outsides, and, presto, super-duper car comin’ at you.

Nightmare fuel to go with your Body Buddies cold cereal.

PS — Big bonus. The episode below is in German with subtitles, which makes for a very existential experience.
