| Underrated Hanna Barbera cartoon released the same year as the Smurfs...
When Space Stars first came out on NBC in the fall of 1981, it was originally slated to debut the year before but was delayed to a writer's strike that impacted many TV shows, including Space Stars. The other show that was impacted was the Flinstones Funnies. During that fall, a little show by the name of the Smurfs captivated the imagination of youngsters old and new and gained Emmys in the seasons ahead. Not so with Space Stars. It lasted only one season since it was made that way and consists of several segments revolving around Space Ghost, Astro and the Teen Force, and the Herculoids. Nearly all of the cast members from the original 1960's TV show return to voice them. The animation is still American made and was one of the last cartoons to be made in the USA before Hanna Barbera focused on Asian studios for work. The visual effects by Laserium used for the space travel scenes as well as the closing and opening credits are amazing. I started watching it in reruns on USA Cartoon Express and have seen the full episodes online in stunning 480p quality and it holds up today.
