[Video] Blast From the Past: Bravestar

I have absolutely no memory of this cartoon whatsoever, but it looks cool!

“Eyes of the hawk, strength of the bear, speed of the puma!”

Anyone remember this one?

  1. Neither do I, but it sure looks like all the other Filmation series I do remember!

  2. This has to be the best post ever on SF Signal. Loved this show as a kid.

  3. I definitely remember the show, though I remember it as one that I seldom watched. The “Eyes of the hawk, ears of the wolf, strength of the bear, speed of the puma” bit was the most memorable part of the show. In fact, before seeing this post, I would have been able to tell you that I watched a show as a kid where a guy called on the powers of various animals, but I might not have been able to tell you that his name was Bravestar.

  4. I remember that show! I rarely watched it because something I liked better was on in the same time slot. I remember thinking the Disney-style dwarves were a serious drawback to the show’s cool factor. I mean, what were they thinking?
    “Sure, this bad-ass western-in-space cartoon you brought us is a great idea, but let’s not get too bound up with the wild west theme! Why don’t we jazz it up and throw some little whistle-while-you-work guys in there?”

  5. I remember it fondly! But then again I’m sure I remember stuff that although made in the US was only ever shown here in the UK. Also, all the UK-centric stuff as well!

  6. I saw it but not being a Westerns fan, this didn’t catch my eye at the time.

  7. Yep, I remember this one. I found the horse creepy. I much preferred Galaxy Rangers or Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs (swordsman, race car driver, cowboy, and a girl named April, *with* giant robot… sometimes in space).

  8. Never saw this before. It looks like what would happen if someone did a 1980s-style Firefly and Power Rangers mash up. Terrible yet wonderful.

  9. I vaguely recognize the title but have no recollection of actually watching it — I think it came a little too late. Was this one of the last cartoons _not_ to be based on a line of toys, or one of the first to be based on a line of toys?

    • It was late 80’s. I believe it was a cartoon first, with toys only showing up later. In fact, I think the show got cancelled before the toys hit the market.
