Was Galaxy Rangers the Proto-Firefly? Survey Says...Probably

The '80s cartoon classic featured a band of sci-fi-flavored lawmen working the Western-style space frontier — sounds a bit like that Joss Whedon show we've all loved and lost


Far be it for me to try and plumb the deepest recesses of Joss Whedon's brain — as much as I'd like to — but looking at the opening credits of The Adventures of Galaxy Rangers, it's easy to see more than a few similarities. Tough gal-who-could-kick-your-ass? Retro six-shooters? Robot horses? Okay, well, two out of three ain't bad.

I always saw Firefly as more of a combining and re-working of the 1998 animes "Outlaw Star" and "Cowboy Bebop".
