In 1986, the world was introduced to the SilverHawks, a group of heroes who defend the galaxy from the evil Mon*Star and his band of villains. The show was a syndicated animated series and was produced by Rankin-Bass Productions. It was created to be a successor to another popular Rankin-Bass show, ThunderCats.

The SilverHawks are a team of cyborg law enforcement officers from the 29th Century. They are the galaxy's elite police force, with specially modified bodies that give them superhuman abilities. The team was founded by Commander Stargazer, who assembled a team of the galaxy's finest peacekeepers. The team includes:

- Quicksilver: The team's leader, who has the power of flight and is incredibly fast.
- Tally-Hawk: Quicksilver's loyal bird companion who can communicate with him telepathically.
- Bluegrass: The team's sharpshooter, who has a guitar that shoots lasers.
- Steelheart: The team's strong-woman, who has the power of super strength.
- Copper Kid: The team's youngest member, who has the power of magnetism.
- Hotwing: The team's pyrotechnic specialist who has the ability to create and control fire.

Together, the SilverHawks protect the galaxy from the evil Mon*Star, who takes the form of a giant armored mobster. Mon*Star commands a gang of criminals that he leads from his base on the planet Limbo. His gang includes:

- Buzz-Saw: A chainsaw-wielding brute who is Mon*Star's muscle.
- Mumbo-Jumbo: A sorcerer who can conjure up powerful spells.
- Windhammer: A giant wind-up soldier with a powerful mace.
- Hardware: A cyborg who is skilled in machinery and is an expert in robotics.
- Mo-Lec-U-Lar: A shape-shifting thief who can change his form and size.

While the SilverHawks are fighting to keep the galaxy safe from Mon*Star and his gang, they have some help from the Galaxy of Limbo's mystical Princess, who uses her powers to help them whenever they need it. Besides, the team also has support from the Copper Kidd's family who live on a nearby planet, which also gives the team a few episodes exploring planets or different parts of space.

The show was well-known for its unique animation style, which included extensive use of motion graphics and computer-generated imagery. The animation was very fluid and dynamic, particularly in the action scenes, and there was never a dull moment during any episode.

SilverHawks was also notable for its voice cast, which included some of the best-known voice actors of the time, such as Bob McFadden, Earl Hammond, Maggie Wheeler, Peter Newman, Adolph Caesar, Larry Kenney, and Doug Preis. The voice actors brought their characters to life with their distinctive voices and personalities, making every scene memorable.

The show was immensely popular during its original run and spawned a range of merchandise, including toys, clothing, and trading cards. However, the show only lasted one season, airing a total of 65 episodes. Despite its short run, SilverHawks has remained a beloved classic among fans of 80s cartoons.

In conclusion, SilverHawks was a thrilling sci-fi animated series that delighted audiences with its unique animation style, iconic characters, and exciting action sequences. The show remains a classic and a must-watch for fans of 80s cartoons or anyone looking for a fun and adventurous sci-fi series.

SilverHawks is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (66 episodes). The series first aired on September 8, 1986.
