Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is an animated television space western, similar to the series Galaxy Rangers and Bravestarr. The series premiered in the United States in 1987 and had a run of 52 episodes, before being cancelled in 1988. The show was based on Star Musketeer Bismarck (星銃士ビスマルク Seijūshi Bisumaruku), a Japanese anime series created by Studio Pierrot that achieved moderate success in Japan. The English language rights to the series was purchased by World Events Productions (WEP), the same company behind the English-language version of Voltron, in 1986. WEP reorganized and rewrote the series, incorporating the original episodes and creating 6 new ones, before releasing it under the name Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs.
I didn't have much access to this show as a kid but the episodes I actually did get to watch, I always enjoyed - not to mention the theme song's so catchy that it's stuck in my head for YEARS. After seeing the shows currently shown here in Toonami Aftermath like the Ronin Warriors or Thundercats, I feel like Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs should also deserve a spot as one of those classic cartoons starring a group of young protagonists fighting against a group of villains.
