In 1966, I was unfamiliar with the regular cast members. It was sort of strange for me to then see them in contemporary clothes during the show's first run. Shatner appeared on a morning talk show (Lloyd Thaxton Show?) in a open-collared shirt but had his pointy sideburns. Nimoy showed up on a game show (perhaps You Don't Say!) with the haircut, normal ears, and penciled-in rounded eyebrows. And he was laughing!
