Bravestarr was an excellent cartoon which was created in the eighties by the now defunct animated company called Filmation. It was one in a long line of excellent cartoons in the era which included Silverhawks, Thundercats, MASK, Jaycee and the Wheeled Warriors and many more. Back then cartoons were real cartoons not like the crap that is shown nowadays. I mean look at cartoons like Sponge Bob Squarepants, Ed, Edd and Eddy and Cow and Chicken. These cartoons are absolute garbage. The only cartoons worth mentioning from recent history are those in the Diniverse made by Paul Dini which are Superman the Animated Series, Batman, Batman Beyond and Justice League. Bravestarr taught many lessons in life. Some of these are the following:
-Respect for elders - Bravestarr as mighty as he was still respected and revered Shaman. He frequently sought advise from the wise old man and obeyed him despite Shaman at times advising Bravestarr to take the harder route.
-Respect for the minorities - Bravestarr respected the Prairie People which were considered as "critters" by the mayor, many of the townsfolk and by Tex Hex.. He fought for their rights and even made one of them his deputy. In the real world such minorities would be the blacks, the Native American Indians and the Latinos.
-Courage - Before Bravestarr came. The whole town was terrorized by Tex Hex and his goons. People were cowardly and would not stand up for themselves. Bravestarr taught them to have courage by example.
-Friendship - Bravestarr and Thirty Thirty are a good example of loyal friends. They have frequently rescued each other from various perils and have stuck together throughout the cartoon series.
-Resourcefulness - There was a time Bravestarr temporarily lost his powers and had to fight hordes of villains. He was able to beat them through his wits and intelligence.
