    Actually Bravestarr is a Classic Media property as part of the Filmation library. Mattel never owned any rights to the show.

    But Mattel did make the toys. I suppose its possible they still have the rights to that.

    Interesting point. It would be so cool to see a Bravestarr Classics! I can't imagine what the 4 horsemen could do with .30/.30!

    I've always loved the Bravestarr show. For some reason I saw it as a spin off of MOTU, heck it was even mentioned as a possible spin off in the series bible.

    I'll always say that Rio Blast was a way for Mattel to try to get MOTU fans into Bravestarr. It's the only way to explain how a space cowboy ends up on Eternia.

    I'd love to see Bravestarr in MOTU Classics.

    I really don't see Bravestarr as a spin off of MOTU. I'll take them as entirely separate entities.

    That being said, I'd love to see this cartoon make a comeback. With some updating and tweaking, it could be the next big fad. So far we've had Aliens, Pirates, and now Vampires. Why not Sci-Fi Westerns?

    I kind of wish I didn't get to thinking about Bravestarr and 30/30 as MOTUC figures... because now I really want to see them. Petition anyone?

    Awesomeness all over, the cartoon rocked and the toys where awesome, although I never owned any of those toys (at that time I was more into M.A.S.K. and Lego), but I played with them a lot at a friends house. He was a spoiled rich kid and his room was a toy store, he really owned every cool toy you could get.

    I believe Mattel licensed the rights from Filmation back in the day. I'm sure on the old ER website it stated all rights in all media and merchandise worldwide (He-Man and She-Ra said all rights, except toys = Mattel)

    There is a thread about it in the Classics forum:

    They'd fit in nicely with Rio Blast.

    I thought the show was based on the toys (mainly due to the fact the toys came first) which would mean that Mattel can do whatever they want with them. if they own them.

    I have recently been on a mission with Bravestarr/MOTUC by starting a Poll and restarting the Bravestarr in MOTUC thread.

    I didn't even know about the connection between Bravestarr and MOTU until I saw this;

    (and on a side not, part of the concept was to make it a spin-off of MOTU).

    The 2 companies had a close relationship back then but the idea definitely started at Filmation.
    I don't know if Mattel kept any rights to the toys, but the concept in probably entirely in the hands of the Filmation library owners.

    He-Man was supposed to appear at the beginning of the series and be the inspiration for Bravestarr to become a Marshall (or something like that, I'd need to reread the documents)
    I have never been a fan of Westerns but for some reason I loved Bravestarr, maybe it was the Sci-Fi elements

    A new fan page has been registered but the owner hasn't updated anything to it yet, Bravestarr.org

    That was the website run by he-man.org member Bravestarr. I was a member of the forums there (although it was pretty dead and started to have spammers). The site had some good information about the toys and series. I stopped being able to access it a few months ago. I assume the site is still his.

    I just watched 10 episodes that I got at dollar tree. Overall, I thought it was an ok cartoon.

    I did get frustrated by the prairie people. They made it a little too childish. And their voices were annoying.

    Was that a Mill Creek release? They have any other cartoon sets there?

    Yeah, it's Mill Creek. Other than MOTU 200x, I don't think they have any others. They may have gotten more in. I bought this over a month ago, and just never got around to watching it.

    I'll look into getting the whole series. Maybe pick it up if it's cheap.

    Not sure I can stand more prairie people though. Man, they really hurt that cartoon.

    I totally agree! I would so like to see a Bravestarr revival!
    I have fond memories of watching Bravestarr on VHS as a kid, and recently started re-watching all the episodes.

    Oh...didn't know there was already a thread here on Bravestarr when I started my thread:http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...n-on-Filmation just used those videos (including his one on Ghostbusters) as conversation starter on whether anyone here watch Bob's videos, if there could be a civilized conversation on the topic of him. I'm baffled by the sheer amount of loud psychotic trolls his blog attracts. It's as if having an opinion on ANYTHING on the internet is a declaration of war...or maybe it's cause he gets revenue form the Escapist and ScrewAttack for his videos and that's what ruffles the trolls' feathers?
