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://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/bounce.php?URL=http%3A%2F%2Farticles.latimes.com%2 F1986-12-21%2Fmagazine%2Ftm-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?
