So where the heck are the SilverHawks?
Yeah, it was "ThunderCats in space," with even the same voice cast. Yeah, the physics were all sorts of nutty. But it was a fun show with a killer theme song, and every episode would take time out at the end--not for a cheesy moral--but to teach science. And I can't argue with that.
Incidentally, I can think of only one cartoon of that era with a better theme song...
Ah YouTube. Thank you for providing me easy content.
Oh man... That's some good stuff. I think I had a Silverhawks lunch box back in the day. But I don't remember EVER seeing the show. Was it as cool as that opening makes it seem?
Oh, and MASK is primed for a comeback. That's just the sort of crazy thing that could fly in this day and age...
Naaw, Galaxy Rangers was better than ALL of them. Too bad there were never any toys.
I'd never heard of Silverhawks until this moment. It looks like Science Ninja Team Gatchaman with better animation crossed with Thundercats without the unnerving furry undertones.
And geez, up until the title at the end I thought it was "Math Crusaders!"
Oh, man! I'd nearly forgotten about MASK!
Rifter fire! Hee hee.
I have said for years now that there needs to be a Silverhawks revival, with all the other 80s properties you mentioned making comebacks. I even think there should be a Silverhawks live-action movie, with Lyle Lovett as Bluegrass. I would pay a lot of money to see that. Like, twenty bucks.
