YMMV / Bravestarr

  • Cargo Ship: Thirty-Thirty x Sara Jane.
  • Ear Worm:
    • The theme song certainly qualifies.
    • The songs in "New Texas Blues", though one may wish they didn't.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Thirty-Thirty.
    • On the villain side, Thunderstick.
  • Fair for Its Day: Bravestarr is a textbook Magical Native American, as is his Parental Substitute Mentor the Shaman, but he's also the heroic lead in an action series and toy franchise, something of a rarity even today.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: In "Bravestarr and the Law", the message that Bravestarr has for viewers at the end is that one always has the duty to obey the law even if one does not agree with it. This is at the end of an episode where a Miscarriage of Justice almost happened and where Shaman's advice to Bravestarr in response to his dilemma as to whether or not he should enforce said judgment was a flashback to his childhood where he violated a sacred pool to save a drowning bird and Shaman told him that he must judge for himself if the pool or the bird's life was more important. On top of that, Bravestarr points out that there are ways to change laws we don't agree with, yet is speaking to an audience who will be disenfranchised for about the next decade and is currently unable to vote on the laws they must obey. The intended message was probably meant to be you can't just turn your back on your responsibilities the minute they become inconvenient for you, and as stated above there are ways to work to improve the law or laws that don't necessarily work, but that's not quite how it comes off.
  • Retroactive Recognition: In the Mexican Spanish dub, this show was for both the titular hero, who was voiced by Jorge Santos, before his Star-Making Role as both Jaffar and Folken Fanel, and also for Ricardo Tejedo, who voiced the same character as a kid, and also was his debut role as a voice actor.
  • The Scrappy: The Prairie People can be this for some viewers due to voices and sometimes being overly naive.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Drops all subtlety and kid-friendliness and flat out says how far the dangers of drug abuse can go in "The Price". On the flip side, kids who see others doing drugs need to inform their parents or other responsible adults before the worst can happen.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • "The Price", for some.
    • From "Fallen Idol":
      Bravestarr: How could you do this? You were my hero.
      Jingles Morgan: I never asked to be your hero.
      Jingles is led away while Bravestarr looks devastated. Then...
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: At least one reviewer has noted that Jingles Morgan may be too good a character for this series, but he only shows up in one episode.
  • Ugly Cute: The prairie people can fall under this at times. Even Outlaw Scuzz has his moments where he looks downright cuddly.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: In "The Price," Bravestarr and Thirty-Thirty are revealed to have thrown everyone undergoing Spin withdrawal, men and women, into the single jail cell in Fort Kerium. The town doctor appears only briefly, and is nowhere in sight as the victims experience painful withdrawal symptoms. While intended to be a Scare 'em Straight moment, it reflects very poorly on the protagonists.
