Princess Gwenevere /Starla and the Jewel Riders
« on: September 10, 2017, 02:28:32 AM »
Hi,

Does anyone remember this show? I have a very vague memory of getting up extra early on the weekends to watch a few episodes. I was browsing YouTube last night and ended up watching the pilot (the Starla version) Are any episodes on DVD playable in the US?  I heard Netflix used to have the Starla versions of the episodes them but they're not there anymore.

I do remember this show. I got up early a few times to watch it myself. If I remember correctly, there was a line of dolls that went with the cartoon.

Jewel Riders Archive has been posting the full episodes on Youtube for both the Starla and Gwenevere versions.

I wore out my 3 VHS tapes as a kid for the show and I *might* currently have the Jewel Riders watching over me as I sleep :D

Thanks for the tip on the Jewel Riders Archive. I didn't realize they had both versions. :)I might see if I can find some of the old VHS on EBay. I never had any of the toys. Does anyone know how long the toys were in stores? It seemed like the show wasn't on for very long.

As a heads up the VHS tapes don't cover the whole series, just a few select episodes.

I found the intro for season one on youtube.  For some reason this seems familiar to me but I don't remember if I actually watched it or not.

Anyway here's the intro....

The toys had a very short run.  They were expensive (or at least the horses were) for what you got at the time, that coupled with the fact they didn't get a lot of advertising support meant a short shelf life.  I had bought the winged horse (edit: Sunstar) and ended up returning her because the wing ratchets gave out after a couple of days.  They weren't too well designed.

I used to watch Starla and the jewelriders as a kid. I still know the lyrics to the themesong. Didn't know there were two version tho, or any dolls.

Thank you everyone. I noticed on EBay there is a lunchbox and sleeping bag so there must have been enough interest to make a little merch. I don't think I ever saw a commercial for the toys. The show being in the extra early time slot (at least in my area) when most kids were still asleep probably didn't attract viewers. It looks like it could have been a great hit with more marketing.

Oh yea, Starla used to be my jam. I was quite obsessed with Wintermane and the lioness that appeared for 5 seconds in the pilot episode, then in season 2 Shadow Song was added to that obsessionXD

Here in sweden, I never saw any of the toys...Might have seen a bedspread, but nothing else... Sweden have always been odd with toys and shows... With Digimon for example, we got the Tamers toys, but the tamer season never appeared here.
I would really want to have the horse toys at the very least, I even posted a topic about it a few days ago in the wanted section. Sooo... if anybody happen to have a Sunstar or Moondancer they want to sell, contact me.

Oh also, I have just made a custom Starla doll. I just finished rehairing her and I also did her leotard, but she is missing a pair of proper boots, armguards, cape and shoulder guards.
