Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
His name is Marshall BraveStarr and he s come to the rough-and-tumble planet of New Texas to bring some law to its anarchy. Aided by the shape-changing techno horse, Thirty/Thirty, and the beautiful Judge J.B. McBride, BraveStarr protects the settlers and miners from the motley villians that want to steal the valuable mineral, Kerium. The outlaw, Tex Hex, and his gang have lots of technological weapons at their command - and occasional assists by the powerful Phantom and Stampede - but they re no match for BraveStarr s own powers: the strength of the bear, the speed of the puma, the eyes of the hawk, and the ears of the wolf!
Now for the first time ever on DVD, fans can relive the final 32 episodes from this thrilling series!

Of course, no western, even a futuristic sci-fi western, would be complete without the no-nonsense, tough as nails sheriff. But Bravestarr embodies a depth of character that differentiates him from all of the previous western heroes. Bravestarr is actually a person of color, a rare attribute for a lead heroic character on the Saturday morning landscape, even today. Unlike most other heroes, he doesn't always have the answers and occasionally relies on the sage advice of his mentor, the Shaman. In Bravestarr, Filmation created a memorable hero who is well aware of his shortcomings but is determined to rise above them in order to bring peace to a hostile land.
Unfortunately, the absence of bonus features for this final volume can be directly attributed to the lackluster sales of Bravestarr Volume 1.Read more ›
If you are a Filmation or Bravestarr fan, it will finish your collection. I should close by saying I paid $23 (new) for this, and I don't think it's worth much more than that. The first Bravestarr boxed set was a better effort by a long shot.
I mostly wanted to see the other episodes for the sake of curiosity, not because I thought the show was great. If I divide $23 by 32, I'm paying roughly $.71 per episode for a trip back down memory lane, and that seems fair to me. If only I could do that with other TV shows I saw as a child that I have hazy memories about...
After Bravestarr, Filmation studios was shut down. There are still a few Filmation properties that have not been brought to DVD, such as Tarzan Lord Of The Jungle, but those properties are intertwined with multiple rights holders, who have not agreed to a re-release as of this date (July 2008).
FYI-to see Tarzan in low quality video, use your favorite search engine and type an episode name, such as "Tarzan and the drought" and go from there.
