Cartoon Production Information:


Rankin-Bass' follow-up to their successful Thundercats was this series about a team of human heroes in the 25th Century who were given metal bodies and hawk wings to stop organized crime in the Limbo galaxy.

Bionic policeman Commander Stargazer recruited the SilverHawks to fight the evil Mon*Star, an escaped alien mob boss who transformed into an enormous armor-plated creature with the aid of Limbo's Moonstar. Joining Mon*Star in his villainy was an intergalactic mob: snakelike Yessman, blade-armed Buzz-Saw, bull-headed (literally) Mumbo-Jumbo, weather controller Windhammer, shapeshifter Mo-Lec-U-Lar, robotic card shark Pokerface, weapons-heavy Hardware, "and the musical madness of Melodia!"

Quicksilver (formerly Jonathan Quick) led the SilverHawks, with his metal bird companion TallyHawk at his side. Twins Emily and Will Hart became Steelheart and Steelwill, the Silverhawks' technicians and strongmen. Country-singing Bluegrass played a sonic guitar and piloted the team's ship, the Mirage. Rounding out the group was a youngster "from the planet of the mimes," Copper Kidd, a mathematical genius who spoke in computerized tones. At the end of every episode, Copper Kidd was quizzed (along with the home audience) on various space facts.

Launching from their satellite base, Hawk Haven, the SilverHawks flew into battle five days a week for one season.

The services of psychologist Robert Kuisis, Ph.D. were retained to examine the scripts and recommend positive social messages. Dr. William A. Gutsch Jr. of the American Museum-Hayden Planetarium was also consulted.

This episode is the origin story for the ex-magician turned superhero. It seems that the Limbo Mob at times, was its own worst enemy.
