From the creators of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda comes a hilarious "fun-fueled family adventure" (Bill Bregoli, CBS Radio News) that proves no dream is too big...and no dreamer too small. When an ordinary snail named Turbo acquires the power of super-speed, his life kicks into overdrive! With the help of a struggling taco stand owner and a streetwise snail crew, Turbo will attempt to race in the Indy 500 and make all their dreams come true.
Turbo: Turbo dreams of being the greatest racer in the world and competing in the Indy 500. His obsession with speed has made him an outsider in the slow and cautious snail community. After a freak accident gives him incredible speed, Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible. Chet: Chet is Turbo’s older brother and polar opposite. Overly cautious and always practical, Chet is the realist to Turbo’s dreamer. Chet’s number one priority is to keep his brother safe – and Turbo is his biggest challenge at succeeding in that task! Tito: Tito, like Turbo, is a dreamer. Turbo and his older brother Angelo run a taco stand they call Dos Bros Tacos. Tito is forever coming up with misplaced schemes to draw attention to their struggling business. When Turbo zooms into Tito’s life at 200mph, Tito is inspired, and the two kindred spirits head off to chase an incredible dream.Angelo: Angelo is the older and more level-headed half of Dos Bros Tacos. Like Chet, Angelo is realistic about his station in life and has to put up with a brother whose goals seem evasive, if not downright delusional. Guy Gagne: Guy is a French-Canadian race car driver and five-time Indy 500 champ. Guy comes across as an eccentric yet charismatic charmer, but he’s really a competitive egomaniac who will do anything to win. He’s all speed, no heart. Whiplash: Before Turbo arrived on the scene, Whiplash was the charismatic leader and reigning champ of the Racing Snails. To be part of Whiplash’s crew you must earn his respect…and unless you’ve won his respect, you’ll never see the real Whiplash -- a warm, jovial guy who treats his crew like family. Smoove Move: A super-cool low rider, Smoove has a unique perspective on even the craziest twists and turns triggered by Turbo’s adventures.Skidmark: A master of trash talk, Skidmark is Whiplash’s feisty #2. For Skidmark, no stunt is successful if it doesn’t end with an epic wipeout. Burn: Though she’s the only female snail in the group of testosterone-fueled racing snails, Burn has no trouble holding her own. Sly and sassy, Burn hides her soft side under a hard outer shell. White Shadow: Full of false bravado and real laughs, White Shadow considers himself to be “fast, like a shadow” – ignoring the fact that shadows aren’t inherently fast.
