History: When the evil magician Stampede arrived on the planet of New Texas, a world rich in the rare mineral Kerium, he granted terrible powers to the greedy miner Tex Hex. Using his new abilities, Tex instigated a reign of terror, and the desperate New Texans sent out a cry for help. This was answered by Marshall Bravestarr, a futuristic lawman with powers of his own. Now, ably assisted by his cyborg horse and partner 30/30 (a being able to switch between a horse form and an equine humanoid, armed with a gun he called Sara Jane), and his mentor Shaman (Stampede's arch enemy), Bravestarr fights to bring peace to his new home.
Comments: Voice provided by Pat Fraley. Unlike many of the cartoons of the day, Bravestarr was not a toy which was then licensed to become a cartoon - instead it went the other way, with Mattel buying the rights to make a line of toys based on Filmation's original cartoon concept. The toys came out before the series aired, but didn't do very well (partly due to a lack of publicity), and as a result the show only lasted one season. It was the last cartoon Filmation made.
