    Is Bravestarr a spin-off of He-Man?

    I have stumbled into a debate in my favorite MOTU/POP/NA facebook group Shadow Weaver's Realm. Apparently it's old news that Bravestarr was a second spin-off of He-Man, but I can't find any info anywhere online stating this.

    The only thing I've been able to come up with is that Bravestarr evolved out of Filmation's Ghostbusters cartoon series: http://articles.latimes.com/1986-12-21/magazine/tm-3736_1_bravestarr-toy


    According to this article, Tex Hex was developed for the Ghostbusters show, but Lou Scheimer liked him so much that he decided to develop an entire show around him - thus Bravestarr was born...

    Does anybody have definitive information - or know where I could look to put this debate to rest, at least in my mind?

    Originally it was supposed to be a spin off, but the idea was scrapped.

    The original pilot script was suppose involve He-man and Skeletor. Bravestaff was suppose to exist in the same universe, but Filmation scrapped the idea.

    I think its for the best.

    Oh, I don't know. I think it would be kinda cool if He-Man and Bravestarr (and even Blackstar) were all in the same universe. It'd be neat to tie them all together somehow (plus I wouldn't mind those figures in MOTUC form if it were ever possible). Just my thoughts.

    I can't remember for sure, but possibly from the BCI's produced Bravestarr DVD Special Feature Documents.

    I don't remember if Skeletor was there as well, but yes, He-Man would have appaeared in the pilot and Bravestarr was going to be inspired by him.
    It's in a old Filmation document. I don't remember if we showed it in the DVD, but I'm pretty sure it was me or Busta disclosing this information

    Thanks, Emiliano!

    Looks like that LA Times article got it wrong, or maybe both are true? Either way, I'll be renting the Bravestarr DVDs and checking out the extras/documentaries.
