1 9 8 7 – 1 9 8 9 (USA)
65 x 30 minute episodes
The adventures of Marshal BraveStarr (voiced by Pat Fraley), who maintains law and order on the desert planet of New Texas, where a Kerium rush has attracted evil fortune hunters, including Tex-Hex (Charlie Adler), the leader of the Carrion Bunch. Typical stories involve miners, outlaws, slavers and so forth.
BraveStarr – who can summon the eyes of a hawk, the ears of a wolf, the strength of a bear and the speed of a puma from the spirits of his ancestors – is assisted by Thirty-Thirty, his talking cybernetic horse (Ed Gilbert), his sidekick Deputy Fuzz (Charlie Adler), and JB (Susan Blu), the town judge and a fiery redhead.
While protecting Fort Kerium from thieves and outlaws, BraveStarr deploys such tools as a “laser lasso” and “sonic shackles” (handcuffs) and accesses information such as criminal records, maps and other databases via a shaded visor.
This was the last cartoon produced by Filmation and like many of their shows, every episode of BraveStarr concludes with a message from the characters, delivered directly to the viewing audience.
Judge “JB” (Jamie) McBride
