Turbo Teen

Turbo Teen

Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show

Not only was Brett Matthews a great sports car driver, he was also a great sports car! Following an accident in which he crashed into a science lab where a top-secret transfer ray was being developed, Brett had the ability to turn himself into a car whenever his body temperature reached a certain level. Brett trusted no one—aside from his girlfriend Pattie, his buddy Alex, and the federal government—with his chrome-plated secret.

Always an altruistic automobile, the Turbo Teen used his powers for good. Most notably, he battled bad guy Dark Rider and his truck, Bigfoot.

Created during the short-lived 3-D resurgence of the early 80's (remember Jaws 3-D or Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn?), some of the Turbo Teen’s segments were aired in 3-D. The show itself lasted about as long as the 3-D revival, closing shop after only 12 episodes.
