Marshall BraveStarr

Greetings from New Texas

MMDE: Power of the Bear

Current: Strength of the Bear

Who can't forget BraveStarr, the Space Western animated series which ran from September 1987 to February 1988? He was forever battling the evil Tex Hex, and his many adventures included the apecats, his trusty sidekick Thirty/Thirty and his ability to call on spirit animals whenever he needed an extra boost.

He could invoke:

  • Eyes of the Hawk
  • Ears of the Wolf
  • Speed of the Puma

But what of the Bear? Currently all references are to the Strength of the Bear, but many swear they remember it as the Power of the Bear.

New Texas

The series was set 600 parsecs from Earth on New Texas, a planet orbiting 3 suns, which is mostly desert apart from the wetland area where the "apecats" live. BraveStarr carried a neutra-laser pistol, which he only used as a last resort, preferring a peaceful solution to any conflicts he had to resolve.

His main enemy was Stampede, who was the ringleader of a band of outlaws - a huge horned fire-breating beast.
