Severe Flashbacks of Bizarre Cartoon
8 November 1999 | by mckeown-3See all my reviews

I always tried to convince people that this cartoon actually existed but no one believed me. My whole life until today, I had convinced myself that the entire show was a bizarre dream or hypnotic flashback of my childhood in which a boy could turn into this gnarly red hot rod whenever he ate spicy foods and then would turn back into a teenager whenever "the car ate" cold foods (I know, people thought I was insane, but its true - Turbo Teen is so wack!).

I remember one key episode in which the dude ate a spicy sausage or something, turned into a car to race his friends somewhere, and then his friends dumped an ice cream cone on the hood of himself (?) to turn him back. ABSOLUTE INSANITY.

Thank you IMDB, for allowing closure on a severely traumatizing memory that until today, I was convinced was a hallucination.
