YMMV: Brave Starr
  • Alien Scrappy: Deputy Fuzz. Actually, the Prairie People are a whole race of alien scrappies.
  • 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.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Stampede and his dragon-bull army in the movie.
    • "The Price" has some legitimately disturbing moments, such as the anguished screams and struggles of spin-addicted miners, or Jay's downward spiral.
  • 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 worse 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...
  • Ugly Cute: The prairie people can fall under this at times when they're not fulfilling their Alien Scrappy status. Even Outlaw Scuzz has his moments where he looks downright cuddly.
  • What Could Have Been: It's a terrible pity that the Filmation version of Sherlock Holmes In the 23rd Century never got produced. The two-episode pilot that got folded into Bravestarr is wonderful, much cooler than Dic's version that finally did get made.
