During initial discussions, the creative team went to NYC for a meeting with NBC VP of Children's Broadcasting, Mickey Dwyer, and one of the things she wanted for the show Firestar to have a dog. Writer Dennis Marks' wife had had a Llhasa Apso, a rather new breed in the States at the time and he told Ms. Dwyer about the Llhasa being the Temple Lion Dog of Tibet, and, because this was right in the middle of the feminist revolution they decided to could call the dog character "Miz Lion." That character sold the show to NBC. See more »
I don't remember lasting as long as it says it did.
I was thinking this cartoon was only on a couple of years, but according to imdb it was on for a good while. Well, I watched it when I was a kid and I remember it being one of my favorite cartoons...though when I started to collect the comics I realized it was a kind of weird team-up. Iceman being a member of the X-men and I am not sure how Firestar was used in the comics back then. I do know that it worked and I am not the only one who liked this series otherwise it wouldn't have been on for so long. One episode I remember had the three friends and some other marvel superheroes going to this house of some villain (it might have been Kraven), and the villain uses the superheroes weaknesses against them. He pitted Firestar and Iceman against each other, and the Submariner accidentally swam in a pool full of alcohol. In the end Spiderman saved the day, as he didn't have an apparent weakness.
