Super Saturday - Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders

The Crown Jewels of Avalon have been scattered throughout the kingdom, unleashing powerful magic that Princess Gwenevere, Fallon, and Tamara must tame. Using the magic of the Enchanted Jewels to speak with fantastic animal friends, these adventurous teens team up with daring, wolf-riding boys to outwit the outlaw Lady Kale and reclaim the Jewels that can save the enchanted kingdom of Avalon.

Debuting September 10th, 1995, Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders (known as Starla & The Jewel Riders internationally) is a twenty-six episode animated series and doll line created by Robert Mandell, New Frontier Entertainment, and Kenner. Girls and boys all around the world thrilled to the magic, music, and adventure of Gwen, Tamara, Fallon, Drake, Josh, and Max as they discovered the secrets of the Sun Stone, Moon Stone, Heart Stone, and Forest Stones, and worked together to bring their mentor Merlin home and defeat the dark magic of the evil Lady Kale and the dark wizard Morgana.

Now, from your mod….

Why you think fellow Jem fans will enjoy this: Pastel clad magical girls ride unicorns and try to save magic. They have also been known to save their wolf-riding love interests on more than one occasion.

If you aren’t on bored with the Fantasy genre, you aren’t going to like this. It is good look at Western styled magical girls. Interesting fact the English Dub of Sailor Moon would air in North America the same year for the first time. 

Its worth noting that as severally 80s as Jem is, Jewel Riders is as 90s (admittedly in the fantasy setting, but you’ll still see it). 

The fandom is small, and pretty chill. Like the Jem fandom it has been around the whole time, only with less creators involvement. (As far as I can tell!)

Where and how to find it:  Youtube. You can still find VHS around, if you still have VCR. There has been DVDs from a few years ago, but good luck on that one.

Where to start things off best: You don;t need the set up, but is helps. Start at episode one of this one. 

The highlights? The season openers and closers. I highly recommend using the episode guide at the site above if you want to cheery pick during your watch. You’ll follow the plot best by watching the episodes written by Robert Mandell, Christopher Rowley, and Robin Young (who wrote a lot of the show).

Do you like the show? Are you a huge fan who thinks this hasn’t been done justice here? Write your own take and share the love!

For a thousand years and more, The Worlds of Man have been dominated by the Laowon Imperium.  The Aliens thought humans made good slaves and even better pets  They were fond, too, of creating new breeds - always ensuring that their playthings never grew too powerful.

Then Jon Iehard, once a Laowon slave himself, was sent on a mission to destroy a terrorist from Old Earth - and this was the beginning of the end for the Laowon…Because he discovered a weapon, so deadly that it could not only destroy the Laowon tyranny, but could also bring freedom to Mankind again!
