Following the success of ThunderCats, Rankin/Bass released another animated series called SilverHawks. In this show, bionic policeman Commander Stargazer recruits the SilverHawks, a team of heroes who are “partly metal, partly real.” They fight the evil Mon*Star, an escaped alien mob boss who transforms into an enormous armor-plated creature.
SilverHawks ran for 65 episodes in first-run syndication in 1986. The voice cast features many of the same talents who starred in ThunderCats. The cast includes Peter Newman, Adolph Caesar, Earl Hammond, Bob McFadden, Maggie Wheeler, Doug Preis, Peter Newman, and Larry Kenney.
