BraveStarr is a 1980s American Space Western animated television series. The original episodes aired from September 1987 to February 1988 in syndication. It was created simultaneously with a collection of action figures. BraveStarr was the last animated series produced by Filmation and Group W Productions to be broadcast before Filmation shut down in 1989. Bravo!, a spin-off series (originally called Quest of the Prairie People) was in production along with Bugzburg when the studio closed down. Reruns of the show aired on Qubo as part of the Night Owl block from 2010 to 2013, and on the Retro Television Network from 2010 to 2015.

The episodes combine elements of science fiction and western genres. It is set in the 23rd century on a multi-cultural desert planet called New Texas. As on other Filmation shows, a moral lesson is told at the end of each episode. One notable episode is "The Price", in which a boy buys a drug called "spin" (a hallucinogen similar to LSD), becomes addicted to it, and dies of an overdose.
