5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised! February 23, 2011
By VNY
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah the 80s... September 17, 2007
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. July 18, 2007
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 Finally on DVD!!! March 17, 2008
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 August 13, 2007
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Bravestarr at his best July 19, 2007
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.
