Hey everyone,

I've just watched a 5-part youtube looking for the intro of a cartoon from my childhood with no luck.

I don't remember much from the cartoon but it has been eating at me for a REALLY long time. All I remember is:
- it was on at 7:00 or 7:30 weekdays in the '80's (circa '84)
- not sure of the quality of animation but it could have been from the '70's but I remember the quality being better than G-Force or Grendizer
- it may have been Anime
- it had characters that reinded me of Star Wars - a Luke, Leia, and Han Solo type character (who I picture being sluggish or lazy)
- it may have happened underwater (or maybe one episode was) but wasn't something like Tigersharks - everyone was human
- hey, it may not have been a space cartoon - but maybe take place on a distant planet

I dunno - not much to go on but it would really help scratch that itch I've had for a while

Thanks!!!

A lot of toons borrowed elements from Star Wars
during the 80's

Two series come to mind

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors (85)

There was a group of heroes The Lighting League( a wizard (wizened Obi Won type),
a roguish pilot smuggler in the mold of Han Solo, a young girl who had the ability to talk
to plants. A droid, for a touch of comedy relief, and his master the idealistic young hero with father issues, Jayce.

View Episode 10 Underwater
Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors

--------------------
An idealistic young man hungers to leave
his rural farm home and seek adventure
finds himself in the center of a war against
a horrible empire.

The hairy/furry bison man Van Buskirk
was like Han and Chewie combined

Possibly,...

Lensman

Intro
Lensman

Lensman Movie
--------------------

Thanks Straydog,

It's not Jayce - I do remember that series, but more for the themesong and intro than the actual show.

I looked up Lensman and that doesn't look familiar (although it does look like a great story - I should check it out).

Thinking about it again, I'm pretty sure that it is anime or anime-style.

Thanks for your help!

80's anime reminiscent of Star Wars
-Star Wars-
Idealistic young man destined to be hero-Luke
Princess/royalty brave determined female -Lea
Experienced roguish pilot/smuggler-Han Solo
sf environment (robots/droids, lasers etc)
minus aliens-no chewbacca
what else do yo remember about the series?
enemies, environment, mode of transportation?
