5.0 out of 5 stars Strength of the bear! Speed of the puma! 13 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Bravestarr was the last, great 'toon from Filmation, the company that gave us He-Man and She-Ra (and a lot more besides). A science-fiction/wild west mash-up, it starred the heroic Marshall Bravestarr, a mystically empowered lawman protecting the planet of New Texas from outlandish criminals, aliens and monsters, with the help of his cyborg horse-man best buddy, 30/30.

I bought this DVD on a whim, half-remembering the show from childhood, and I'm pleased to say that it holds up well. Thanks to the liberal use of rotoscoping (filming the movements of live actors and then tracing the characters over those images), the animation is still impressively slick, and the designs of the characters, the setting and even the gadgets and other 'props' are appealing and memorable. Bravestarr and 30/30 have good 'buddy movie' chemistry, there's some laughs and even a bit of surprising darkness, and it's refreshing to see a cartoon with a non-caucasian hero.

Okay, ultimately it's a kids cartoon - don't be expecting an animated version of Firefly here - and the DNA of He-Man is ever present; there's a goofy little sidekick, moral messages and wacky, action figure villains. But Bravestarr is still an enjoyable romp, better and bolder than He-Man, and something to be enjoyed by the kids of today and yesteryear alike.

This DVD set comprises Bravestarr: the Legend (the full length animated movie, intended to act as the pilot for the following weekly series), five of the best episodes from the show itself and lots of little extras. It's good value and your kids'll probably love it - if you don't mind them running round the house shouting "STRENGTH OF THE BEAR!!!" for hours afterwards, that is...

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah the 80s... 17 Sep 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best shows you've never heard of. 18 July 2007
By Batman Fan - Published on Amazon.com
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised! 24 Feb 2011
By VNY - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I remember being a Bravestarr fan when I was a kid. Now as much as I wanted to see it again, after twenty-plus years, I was prepared to enjoy it exclusively out of pure nostalgia. But as I sat there watching the movie something happened: I realized this was actually good. Not only that but it also managed to do three things He-Man, my childhood hero, never could:

1. First thing I noticed was the animation. It's incredibly more fluent than Masters of the Universe (Filmation's most famous show) while still preserving that Filmation style and look. Maybe it's because of this that the episodes are easier to watch now that I'm an adult. Try as I might, the only reason I sit through a He-Man episode is because of pure nostalgia only. There's only so many times you can see the same animation over and over.

2. Bravestarr actually hits the bad guys. We get to see "real" fight scenes between the characters. While He-Man only punches the screen and tosses the bad guys around, Bravestarr hits, kicks and shoots!!! the enemy. Yes, Bravestarr uses his gun on the bad guys, unlike He-Man who only uses his sword to transform.

3. Bravestarr gets the girl. The only time we ever see He-Man even a hug a girl was when he reunited with his long lost sister. And it only took him 120 episodes to do that. It takes Bravestarr only half way through the movie to KISS, not just hug, KISS the main love interest.

Now He-Man will always be my favorite, as it made more of an impact on me while I was groing up. But Bravestarr has got to be the best show on the Filmation library. Give it a chance. You won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally on DVD!!! 17 Mar 2008
By Christian Sippus - Published on Amazon.com
I actually never saw the feature length film of Bravestarr when I was a kid so it kinda left some gaps in the story for me. How did everything start, how did Bravestarr meet Thirty/Thirty, etc. I know some of the issues were revelead in some of the episodes but I guess I must have missed those. Anyway this is an excellent movie to fill in some of the gaps especially when it comes to how did the legend begin.

If you loved the show you'll definitely going to love this movie! Also if you don't really remember the show but know you watched it as a kid this is a good place to start your walk on memory lane. You'll instantly get upto speed on everything and you woun't feel so lost when you start watching the episodes from Season One Vol. 1. As far as the best episodes I haven't even watched those since I bought the Season One Vol. 1. collection so I'm not going to go on about those. The other bonuses are definitely intersting and a nice extra!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Texas Only Needed On Marshall 13 Aug 2007
By Michael E. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
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).
