Anime Fanon

American Star is an American animated sitcom that aired from 1994–1996, created by Peter Engel and developed by Max Thomas. The sitcom is based on the superhero characters created by Marvel Comics and Peter Engel from Saved by the Bell. Melvin Productions (Season 1), Charles Hill Films (Season 2-3) animation and produced it along with Breakthrough Films and Television, Organ Entertainment, Peter Engel Productions, NBC Productions and Thunderstone Television for Oliver Television Inc.


The show's opening theme, written by Doug Katsaros, who also composed the scores for every episode, consists of big band music and campy scat singing. A typical episode plot would have American Star battling a villain until Kinder devises a solution that saves the day. American Star then declares an absurd moral regarding the previous conflict before the story comes to a close. Although the series was initially aimed primarily at children, it features an absurdist, parody style that appeals to an older audience as well.

The animation is produced by Melvin Productions (Season 1), Charles Hill Films (Season 2-3) and AKOM Productions Co (Season 1-3).
