0:58-1:00 is one of the most awesome shots in the history of animation.
I just wanted everyone to know that this statement isn't an exaggeration. If anything, it's an understatement.
This may be the only animation you'll ever see where a man and an anthropomorphized horse wink at each other, and it's not creepy in the slightest.

If I remember correctly, his cyborg horse's name is Thirty-Thirty.

+5 for horse that transforms into biped horse w/opposable thumbs.

I think I had the action figure of one of the bad guys! I really remember liking that toy, it was awesome.

Filmation made some godawful cartoons (how we haven't had more of theirs in the last two weeks is beyond me) but this one at least had a kickass theme song and a goddamn SHOTGUN HORSE.

Throwing skills of a girl!
Wang of a horse!

There was a time when I couldn't remember the name of this series, and half believed I'd hallucinated it.
i felt that way about the maxx.

I never saw this as a kid and that makes me sorta sad. It looks Westspacetastic.

I think I saw this only dubbed in Spanish so I missed out on the amazing rhyming skills.
That said, goddamn where did Filmation learn that movement existed on more than one plane? The animation to that looks amazing.

I used to listen to the Bon Jovi track "wanted dead or alive" when I was a kid and imagine it was about bravestarr.
"On a steel horse I ride" is OBVIOUSLY about Bravestarr, though I'm sure that Thirty-Thirty and the other Equestroids were built from like titanium or something, not steel, but I mean what you think Bon Jovi is gonna know that? No. He's not.

Cowboys in space is always a win.

I love the maniacal, almost rabid sounding "Bravestarr" from the voice over at the end there.
Also, this was Filmation's last show ever. That makes me sad.

Five stars for the kick to the face at 1:03: freeze the video and you'll see there's an explosion at the point of impact. Jim Aparo could not have done better.
Also five stars for the episode with the anti-drug theme ... all the 80s cartoons had one, but this was the only show that went all the way with it, in that the drugged-out kid actually overdosed and died. The final "don't do drugs" message at the end was delivered by Bravestarr laying a wreath at the kid's lonely, lonely grave.

Have I commented yet saying how genuinely glad I am this is on here? Bravestarr was on long enough ago to be on the cusp of my memories, for so long I thought I was imagining it, all I could remember was a robot horse who said "pardner", and when I was a kid I didn't know what he was saying. Then I found this, and I'm not ashamed to say I watched it several times over and punched the air a lot.
Be sure to catch this too (the tags don't link up with it):
On the one hand, it's pretty clearly a cheaply-made movie that repurposes every second of the intro and exists just to tie the cartoon to the toy line. On the other hand, it's got more than a few moments; you can tell the Filmation guys enjoyed writing a hero who is occasionally a showoff and isn't always impressed with the guys he's fighting.
