The latter show was dropped in September and replaced with reruns of The Get Along Gang. (Jeff Lenburg, in his The Encyclopedia of Animated Cartoons, erroneously claims that The Get-Along Gang was dropped in favor of Rainbow Brite.) In May 1987, Rainbow Brite was replaced with Lady Lovelylocks and the Pixietails.
The show was hosted by four youths in auto racing attire with chassis on their shoulders. They included a boy and a girl who were the "good kids" of the show, and they taught lessons to the reckless Fast Lane, a fiery-haired teen with a flame-decorated chassis on his shoulders and the chubby, impressionable Couch Potato. In one episode, Couch Potato started drinking beer with a number of other kids (off-screen) so they can all vomit on an old lady's plant. He admits that to him, beer tastes like soap, so they easily convince him to stop drinking, and he vows to tell the woman why her plant died. These sketches were under five minutes in length, and the youths also did commercial bumpers. While this material was originally credited, no resources have made note of who was involved, and it is omitted from rerun packages. None of the actors have included it on their online CVs, suggesting possible embarrassment over the costuming or juvenile and ephemeral nature of the program.
