Spritle (三船くりお, Mifune Kurio?) and Chim-Chim (三平, Sanpei?)
For comic relief, there’s none better than Speed’s younger brother Spritle and his pet chimpanzee, Chim Chim. Spritle and Chim Chim are an inseparable team. They have a way of popping up at just the right time to pull Speed out of a jam so that he can go on to save the day.
They do this with the disconcerting habit of sneaking inside the Mach 5’s trunk. It’s amazing how this pint-sized pair is able to challenge and overcome muscle-bound thugs or gun-toting gangsters using slingshots, small rocks, and food as weapons. Yet, oftentimes, in an attempt to prove themselves to the family, they will try to solve a mystery on their own.
Of course, their efforts only make matters worse. Packing as much slapstick punch as “The Three Stooges.” These two love candy so much that they fight between themselves over whatever bribes they manage to collect. Needless to say, they eat a lot of candy!
