Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show

"Strength of the bear!"

Frontier justice moved to the final frontier in Filmation's BraveStarr. Set in the 24th century, the syndicated series starred Marshal BraveStarr, lawman of the distant planet New Texas, who could call upon the powers of nature to aid his cause—strength of the bear, speed of the puma, eyes of the hawk, ears of the wolf. Operating from his HQ at Fort Kerium, BraveStarr kept the peace the only way he knew how: by kicking evil solidly in the rear.

Backed up by his Equestroid horse/sidekick Thirty-Thirty and alien Deputy Fuss, BraveStarr defended the lawful rule of Judge B.J., New Texas' magistrate. Shaman, BraveStarr's elderly advisor, occasionally appeared to set the lawman on the right moral path.

Standing squarely against the forces of good was the thoroughly evil Tex-Hex, leader of the Carrion Bunch, an outlaw gang financed by the shadowy cartel called Stampede. The baddies were out to round up the planet's supply of valuable Kerium.

BraveStarr was the last cartoon to come out of Filmation, the company that brought The Archie Show, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe to animated life. Unfortunately, BraveStarr couldn't match the success of these earlier Filmation series, riding into the sunset after 65 weekday episodes.
