Highly enjoyable!
13 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Blackstar was a fun fantasy adventure cartoon that I always looked forward to watching on Saturday mornings. I wanted escapism, brave heroes, cool weapons, goofy sidekicks, and random weirdness. Blackstar delivered! I loved it! Blackstar had everything I wanted from an early 80's Saturday morning fantasy cartoon and more. You just can't beat a brave hero traveling through a black hole to an unknown universe who is armed with a cool sword, rides an even cooler looking flying dragon, is aided by a sorceress and a shape shifter, and battles the villainous Overlord in a strange magical fantasy world filled with all types of impossible creatures (Air-Whales?!) and other assorted weirdness. It was a perfect recipe for enjoyable Saturday morning escapism. Blackstar was fun!
