Turbo Teen - Plot - Netflix
Turbo Teen is about a teenager named Brett Matthews who swerves off a
road during a thunderstorm and crashes into a secret government
laboratory. There, he and his red sports car are accidentally exposed to
a molecular beam invented by a scientist named Dr. Chase for a
government agent named Cardwell. As a result, Brett and his car become
fused together. Brett gains the ability to morph into the car when
exposed to extreme heat and revert into his human form when exposed to
extreme cold. With this new superhero power, Brett and his girlfriend,
Pattie (a freelance reporter) and his best friend, Alex (a mechanic who
calls Brett “TT”), and Brett's dog Rusty go on crime-fighting adventures
together and solve other mysteries. A recurring subplot involves Brett,
Cardwell, and Dr. Chase's search for a way to return Brett to normal.
Also, a recurring villain is the mysterious, unseen “Dark Rider” who
drives a monster truck and seeks to capture Brett Matthews in order to
find the secret behind his abilities. Dark Rider is voiced by Frank
Welker and is similar to how he performs the voice of Dr. Claw in the
Inspector Gadget series.
