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".
  • 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.
