I think - it's safe-to-say - that the CBS 1982-83 Saturday Morning schedule was not a vintage year for animation fans. Looking at the above two-page ad, which ran across the centre pages of Marvel's December 1982 titles, the only things that standout are the vintage Warner Brothers shows.
I don't think any of the other illustrated shows (including two early entries from Marvel Productions) even crossed the Atlantic. I'm fairly sure that BLACKSTAR did make the crossing but - possibly - not for several years. By which point, it was easily (but - it seems - incorrectly) dismissed as a MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE wannabe. The show had actually aired the previous season and these were reruns and - presumably - highly vulnerable to pre-emption's by local stations with weekend sports coverage.
