Power-ups are pick-ups found on the course that are intended to either push the player ahead or slow down one or all (depending on the power-up) opponents, giving the player executing the power-up a short-term advantage in the race. There are a variety of pick-ups available, many being long-ranged shots fired at opponents (some with a homing ability), with some being mine-type power-ups that can be dropped on the course, and others being unique. The following are the power-ups featured in the game:
- Wiener Missile (1-3 per pick-up)
- Leader Missile
- Rocket Fuel (3 per pick-up)
- Homing Wiener (1-3 per pick-up)
- Custard Pie Mine (3 per pick-up)

The game was poorly received by critics and gamers alike. On IGN, it received a 3 out of 10, reviewer Craig Harris stating "Cartoon Network Speedway is one of the sloppiest and most generic kart racers released on the Game Boy Advance." It currently has a 53% rating on Game Rankings. It was also given a 65 out of 100 from Next Level Gaming, a 3 out of 5 from Nintendo Power, and 58 out of 100 from VG-Force. Complaints centered around bad and choppy graphics, the slow pace, that Dexter and The Powerpuff Girls were not available, and the lack of challenge.
