Do you remember your childhood days when Saturday Mornings were made absolutely perfect thanks to cartoons? Mom would be whipping up some breakfast and I’d be nestled in front of the television watching my favourite cartoons.

Recognize any of your favourites here?

Feeling nostalgic and missing my childhood days dearly.

The only difference in my child days in the 80’s is if you missed an episode, you missed an episode. Unless your mom bought on VHS for your of course.

Now we have Netflix and we can stream our favourites anytime, anywhere!
Speaking of favourite cartoons, my children have been watching Netflix Original Series, Turbo, and as a mother, I simply love the animation and story line behind each episode.
I was excited to learn that there are five new episodes of β€œTurbo: FAST” available for streaming as of tomorrow – Friday, April 4th at 12:00 AM PT! Only on Netflix, of course.

(L to R) Skidmark, Chet, Whiplash, Turbo, Smoove Move and Burn in "Turbo FAST."

The world-famous super-powered snail Turbo and his posse of adrenaline-junkie buddies from the Fast Action Stunt Team (FAST) go on daring new adventures, take on the most outrageous challengers and find the craziest ways to keep their city safe.

They kind of have that 80-ish cartoon feel when I watch them, which is probably another reason why I’m so intrigued myself. I’m sentimental that way.

I also love the diverse characters, especially of those in the FAST team as any child (or even adult) can certainly find one to relate to. We have:

  • Turbo: Dare-Devil & Over-Achiever yet with a Big Heart
  • Chet: Voice of Reason and very Cautious
  • Whiplash: Street Smart, Tough yet filled with Honour and Loyalty
  • Smoove Move: Cool and Laid-Back
  • Skidmark: Reckless, Hyper & overly-caffeinated yet Brilliant and Inventive (Sounds a lot like me (with the exception of being reckless!) Not sure how much I love that name though…)
  • Burn: Feisty, hot-blooded and passionate GIRL POWER (or this could be me too…)
  • White Shadow: Clumsy, Gullible yet filled with Soul and Loyalty 

Which character in the FAST Group do you think closely matches your child or your personality?

Snail Up! anytime on any episode of Turbo FAST on Netflix Canada and make sure to tune in tomorrow, Friday April 4th, for all-new exciting episodes!


To make it even more exciting, Netflix is giving one of my readers a chance to win a 6-Month Netflix Subscription plus Turbo FAST Party-Watching Kit!

80 Comments on Snail Up! New Turbo Fast Episodes Exclusively on Netflix Canada + #Giveaway

  1. My youngest daughter is most like Turbo . Keeps on trying no matter what and succeeds in everything she tries , might not be the first time she tries but will try until she succeeds

  2. Honestly, we haven’t seen it, so I am not sure which character. In reading about them I think that Whiplash sounds like me!

  3. I’d have to say Skidmark (although a horrible name!!) he is in go-go mode from the second he wakes till he crashes at night

  4. Love the show! I would say I am Smooth move, My son would definitely be Skid mark 2 of my girls would be White shadow and my other daughter would be Burn for sure.
