I can't recall a lot but I'm pretty sure it was early 80s. All I remember is

  • Puppets.
  • A princess having been captured by an evil sorceress.
  • A small round fluffy guard dog type creature that was the princess's pet.
  • An army or a prince was sent to rescue her.

There was a super dramatic ending. It was definitely intergalactic because the princess was taken to a far off planet.

    Was the princess of the porcine persuasion? Did she lay about with karate chops when she got miffed? – Spencer Aug 13 '19 at 3:44
  • lol no...I believe that was Miss Piggy, and she was a Muppet...not a Puppet. – Luky Bell Aug 13 '19 at 4:51

    What's that? A movie, a cartoon, a comic, a book...? – Jenayah Aug 13 '19 at 5:37
  • It was a TV show...it was similar to Thunderhawks in genre. – Luky Bell Aug 13 '19 at 19:52

This sounds like X-Bomber (called Star Fleet for English/American audiences).

One of the characters was Princess Lamia, who had a guard "dog" called Kirara.

Princess Lamia and Kirara

The title song of the English language version was later re-recorded and released as a single by Bryan May of Queen featuring Eddie Van Halen and some more of his friends.

  • My first thought was starfleet too. @Luky Bell does this jedisparadise.com/4/Star_Fleet_Story2.htm look familiar? – thedogsfoot Aug 13 '19 at 9:30
