SilverHawks

Show Summary

In the far-flung future, the Galaxy of Limbo is in dire need of some heroes. Terrorized by the ruthless villain Mon-Star and his intergalactic horde, the only hope against this tyranny are the partly metal, partly real cybernetically enhanced super-team…the SilverHawks. Led by the daring Quicksilver, the SilverHawks use their amazingly enhanced bodies, their razor sharp wits, and a steely resolve to battle Mon-Star and the forces of evil across the galaxy.

  • Parts of this show are great, other parts are awful but you learn to love them too. From the eighties school of "makes no sense" Silverhawks! A good show, with a good heart and some painful hallmarks of the era that made it.moreless

    First of all, do not question the science. Or lack of, if you prefer. Half the charm of this show is the blissful ignorance of science in its many forms.



    Once you've done that, Silverhawks is very easy to enjoy. It's a charming, well-meaning little show that tries to convey a nice messages to kids about duty, morals and those kind of things. The stories revolve around a group of "partly metal, partly real" humans that are sent out into the galaxy to help fight a mixed bag of weird criminals (Batman has nothing on these guys in that department).



    The quality varies but the charm usually wins through.moreless
  • Now it is turn for birds to save the universe.

    Although this show is well done and I enjoyed it very much when I was just a kid, now I find it so unoriginal. The premise is the same as most cartoons those days; a specific group of animals with super powers (Silverhawks where not actually birds but their special suits were designed based on hawks) fights the evil forces of the universe. Haven't we seen this before? Remember the Thundercats, Transformers, The Rex troop, etc. The only Silverhawk I really like, is the cowboy. His favorite weapon is the laser/guitar and he is always carrying it around. Another nice touch is the spacechips on which the bad guys ride , they resemble the cars from the 20s and 30.moreless

    That show rocked, we used to play Silver hawks when I was little that show is up there with Thunder Cats, Transformers, and G.I. Joe, and a little under He-Man. I was like 7 or 8 when that show was out very good stuff. This was another key cartoon of the 1980's. I believe they even brought it back on Cartoon network, for awhile, along with Thunder Cats. It was a good cartoon when I was a kid, I'm sure it wouldn't be the same now that I'm grown up, but I think my nieces and nephews would like it if it were still on.moreless
  • The SilverHawks are Quicksilver, Steelheart, Steelwill, the Copper Kid, and Bluegrass. \"Partly metal, partly real,\" they protect the Limbo galaxy from the villainous Mob, headed by the towering Monstar.

    This was one of the better Saturday morning cartoons of the mid-1980s. Action is always exciting. Some of the episodes are actually very well-written with unique, fun ideas.



    Besides looking really cool, the SilverHawks have neat toys and a neat ship, the Mirage. Every villain is an interesting character, and they are the most interesting part of the show. Melodia, a villain that could only exist in the 80s, had wild punk hair and fought the SilverHawks with her keyboard gun. Molecular could change shape. Timestopper could stop time \"for one Limbo minute.\" Windhammer had a tuning fork that could control the weather. The places in Limbo were all interesting and created a believable universe for the show.



    The show\'s weakest point is character development. The characters never change. The good are good and the bad are bad, simply for the sake of being bad. Also, very little is known about the SilverHawks themselves. They are merely heroes in space. They rarely emote and little is known about their past on Earth or, for the Copper Kid, the Planet of the Mimes.



    Also, one thing that always bothered me is that the show ignored the fact that there is no gravity in deep space. If a character were blown from a ship or an asteroid, he or she would fall straight down.



    Typical for an 80s cartoon, the show always ended with a short, educational bit, where Bluegrass quizzed the Copper Kid about facts of the universe.moreless
  • A really cool show.

    This is perhaps one of the best animated shows ever made. It's so original and the premise is so outstanding. This action adventure driven animation has a compelling plotline and an exciting pace. Each episode features the silverhawks battling the evil mon star and his band of criminals. It's sort of cowboys and indians in outer space. It's an exciting show to watch, it never bores you. It's an exciting show to get caught up with. You don't have to think with the plot that much, you just sit back and relax and let the action unravel itself right in front of you.moreless
