Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs

Show Summary

Welcome to the Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs guide at TV.com. Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs was an animated TV series that aired from 1986 to 1989. The writer, Marc Handler, was also behind Voltron: Defender of the Universe. The series is set in the late 21st or early 22nd century, when humankind has reached the stars. There are many outposts and settlement worlds in the galaxy with Old West influenced names, such as "Planet Uma" and "Planet Durango". There are also outlaws, bounty hunters... and sheriffs. Saber Rider is the leader of the Star Sheriffs. The Star Sheriffs are the special operatives of Cavalry Command, they are the law enforcement arm and defense patrol organization out in space, and along the New Frontier. Their main assignment is to protect the Galaxy from the growing threat of the Outriders. The Outriders are beings from the Vapor Zone Dimension, led by the powerful Nemisis, who have the ability to travel between dimensions. The growing threat of giant enemy Renegade Units forced the Cavalry Command to create RAMROD, designed and constructed by Commander Eagle, and his daughter, April Eagle. Ramrod Equalizer Unit is mostly used as a large spaceship (Vehicle Mode), but it can transform into a shape of 250' high robot (Challenge Phase). Each episode of Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs begins with the title being displayed, and Saber Rider doing an opening monologue, talking about their whereabouts and the assignments given to them from Cavalry Command. In the conclusion of each episode, Saber summarizes the lesson from the danger they just faced. The show is a significantly edited and altered version of the Japanese anime series "Bismark" which aired in Japan in 1984.moreless

    This is one of those shows that people would want to watch. A great ensemble of characters combined with a very good storyline = Saber Rider. I just wish there would be a DVD collection of all the episodes for purchase. The anime look and the voice talent help to round up the entire package.
  • Best anime series of the 80's

    The eightees were definately full of great anime series but this one was really outstanding. My friends and I never really missed a show. Was it because of the blonde beauty april, the action, or colts cowbody space suit we can't remember. One thing I know now is the we weren't the only fans of that show. All over the world that series made an impact and still is. It still is number one of wishlists all over europe. This series should get some reruns soon.moreless
