Space Stars Debuted on the NBC network in 1981 and took Hanna-Barbera’s classic Space Ghost and Herculoids characters and packaged them with two brand new shows properties, Teen Force and Astro and the Space Mutts. The hour long show didn’t rerun the original Space Ghost and Herculoids episodes from the 1960s however but featured new adventures and included cross-overs of the two shows as well.
Astro and the Space Mutts featured Astro from the popular Jetsons series but this time he was teamed up with two other dogs named Dipper and Cosmo as they patrolled the galaxy as peacekeepers with their human leader, Space Ace.
The Teen Force introduced three super-powered teenagers from the alternate universe of Black Hole X! Kid Comet, who can move faster than the speed of light. Moleculad, who can control his molecular structure. Then there is Elektra who possesses telepathy, telekenesis, and teleportation! Along with two aliens named Plutem and Glax they combated the evil of Uglor of the planet Uris.
