BraveStarr

Show Summary

The discovery of Kerium, a rare and powerful magic crystal, brings an infinite number of colonists from all the corners of the galaxy to the distant planet New Texas. Some are good and honest, others very malicious but no one is more dangerous than Tex Hex the leader of the Carrion Bunch, a group of outlaws under the control of the mysterious group Stampede. Hex seeks to control this immense mineral richness at all costs than is Kerium. Only one person can put a stop on his plans: BraveStarr. When there was an obstacle in the way, BraveStarr called for the power of a particular animal and used that ability to move the obstacle, like using the strength of a bear to move a boulder, or the speed of a puma to catch the criminal, the eyes of a hawk, or the ears of a wolf. To help him in the fight for the cause of justice, he had Thirty-Thirty, his horse that can transform into a human-like creature being able to stand on it's hind legs, talk and fight alongside him. BraveStarr lived in Fort Kerium. His advisor was the wise, elderly Shaman. BraveStarr was created by the Group W. Productions Company, Filmation, the same creators of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, however it wasn't as successful as its predecessor, and many people put the blame on Mattel for the cartoon's short run as they hurried to release the figures for the Christmas season of 1986 before anyone had even heard of BraveStarr. The action figure's poor selling hailed BraveStarr as a failure before it even aired.moreless

  • Sheriffs in other planets

    8.0
    Bravestarr follows the adventures of our hero, a Sheriff in New Texas (it seems old texas run out of pupulation after everybody was executed for several reasons) who has to deal with the usual problems an intergalactic sheriff has to tackle with.



    Not my favorite show i have to admit but it was a good watch. I dont remember liking this show for its looks but for its showing of life in space where everything looked pretty much the same as on earth except for the spaceships and laser guns, it reminds me of life on the wild wild west.moreless
  • Fantastic show from the eighties, with all the illogic associated with the era. Good strong message, delivered in entertaining stories with entertaining characters.

    8.5
    I must admit, I may be remembering Bravestarr with a certain rose-tinted filter but I've got to say it was a great show!



    The shows best feature was its very strong premise: the character of Bravestarr was augmented with the strength of the bear, ears of the wolf, eyes of the hawk and speed of the puma, all of which could be called up to aid him in his battle against crime as a marshal in New Texas. New Texas being a planet rich is crystals that hundreds of colonists come to mine and make their fortune - in the technologically advanced future - that bears a striking resemblance to the old west. I love the eighties.



    If you can learn to love some of the more ludicrous features of this classic show then you should have a great time watching it.moreless
  • A great show for kids that taught a lesson.

    9.5
    I know a lot of people didn't, and many still don't, like the fact that shows like He-Man and Bravestarr tried to teach a lesson with each episode. I think it was and is a great idea. Maybe if every show did this, we would have less overall trouble???



    The characters in this show where great and so where the story lines. The animation was on par with anything else of the day and the voice actors did a wonderful job. Sure a outer-space western is not a new theme, many, many hit shows and movies these days are just old ideas dressed up... SO WHAT? This was a good show and is worth watching on DVD.moreless
  • I remember watching this show in the 80's...

    10
    I can remember watching this show when I was a little kid. For a long time after the show started airing, my dad and I would trade the famous(with me and my parents at least) "speed of the puma", or if I was helping to move something, "strength of the bear". Sometimes if I wasn't listening to my mom, she would say that I should call upon the "ears of the wolf" so that I could hear her better. I loved the animation and sherriff fuzz was my second favorite character(after bravestarr of course). At the time, I didnt understand the point of the show, except that Tex Hex and Bravestarr were enemies, and that Bravestarr was trying to defeat Tex Hex. I would recommend this show to parents with children between the ages of 6 and 12. There is not a lot of violence(as far as I can remember), and I think that at the end of each episode, there is some kind of moral lesson. As the show doesnt air anymore(as far as I know), I think the only way to see this show would be to get a video(or videos) of the 1 and only season.moreless
