Bravestarr at his best

"For a long time after this show came out, I hated it because in so many ways it was similar to He-Man, almost to the point that this was just another attempt at the Masters of the Universe franchise. Kind of a die hard MOTU fan, but after watching the episodes on this DVD, I've come to look at it as one of the final products from Filmation as it seemed to peak. I can see little bits of their earlier work, from Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, Blackstar, Flash Gordon and good ol' He-man himself rooted into this cartoon series, and it's amazing how far that company came and how much it evolved.
I'm eager to watch the movie that came with this set, Bravestarr: The Legend. I do remember a couple of the episodes on this set as well, and after watching them, they are among those that seemed to impact more on things. My favorite is The Price, the episode about the drug known as Spin, with the ending that even had me drawing a quick breath. This episode definitely hit the hardest, and it was a worthy candidate to be added to this set."
One of the best shows you've never heard of.

"This show is one I used to watch as a child. I was prepared to be disappointed re watching this show today, expecting it to feel old and corny viewable only for pure nostalgia, but I was dead wrong. I must say that I love this show just as much as I did when I was little, if not more. I get almost the same feeling I get when I re watch Batman the animated series today. This show is VERY well written. Its made so that both kids and adults can enjoy the complexity of the plots (which deal with things such as fallen idols, betrayal, respect, and even (in one of the best episodes) murder). I highly recommend this to anyone who loves the idea of a western mixed with scifi stuff complete with unique looking creatures and characters. This is also possible the only cartoon ever made that has a Native American as the main character!!! So do yourself a favor and pick this one up, if only to make sure that one day Filmation releases an actual season boxset of this, because (and I know I may get shot for this) this show is WAY better than He-man (which I like too, but like this more)."
New Texas Only Needed On Marshall

"Wonderful DVD. I was happy to see this finally rereleased. Bravestarr: The Legend(Movie) was worth the price alone but all the added bonus features made this twice as awesome. My only complaint is why the bonus features seem better than the episodes. Why wasn't the "Tex But No Hex" episode included on the dvd. This episode brought back the basis for the storyline and also told why it was important for Tex Hex to be around. I'm sure there are other episodes that were better than those included in this set. The Price was an episode with an important message about drugs and addiction but what happened to the episode abouty racism and the prairie people. I would have liked to see more of Bravestarr and Shaman together since the whole native theme was one reason why this series is so significant. Gotta give it up to the bartender(Handlebar), Bravestarr, his Irish Girlfriend(J.B.), and the whole ghost town old west theme thanks to (Tex Hex and New Texas)."
Ah the 80s...

"I remember watching Bravestarr back in the 80s and for the most part it still holds up today. It was nice that they had the movie that I had heard about, but had never seen. There were a lot of scenes in the movie that I remembered seeing in the series, but considering how long it takes to make a animated show, I wasn't surprised.
Overall, it was worth what I paid and how can you not want 30-30 to watch your back?"
