BraveStarr: The Legend (1988)
bravestarr the movie
He-man was ending and filmation needed a new hit cartoon.
They created bravestarr to replace he-man. Mixing space and wild west shows into one.
fimation created a full series plus put a movie in the works. They took a big gamble on bravestarr. The movie would be the pilot to the series and would set everything up.
Animation for the film was really good and had a space ace/ dragons lair type feel to it.
It also used early computer effects.
Released in movie theatres in 1988 as bravestarr the movie, The film was a box office bomb in America. The show also failed on TV leading to the death of filmation studios! The film Would be retitled bravestarr the legend for it's uk release.
The movie would not get a VHS release in America. This helped kill the show more. Without the movie pilot, kids didn't get the history of the show the movie set up.
bci has announced bravestarr the movie will be getting an American DVD release next year.
The film is pretty good, and worth a watch when it gets released.
Heathcliff: The Movie (1986)
heathcliff the movie
Heathcliff the movie was released at the movies in 1986 by clubhouse pictures.
The film is just a clip show. Think of the bugs bunny clip movies and you'll get the idea.
The film has a wrap-around story of heathcliff telling stories to his nephews. The nephews try to escape the boring stories and fail each time.
The stories are from the cartoon series, heathcliff and catallac cats.
The catallac cats only show up in the opening and end credits and never talk.
Mel blank does the voice for heathcliff! The film is on DVD, but is missing the clubhouse pictures intro the original release had.
The film aired on the Disney channel in the 80's.
