Re: Is TAS worth watching in my complete Star Trek marathon?

^What amuses me: Olan Soule and Casey Kasem first played Batman and Robin on Filmation's 1960s Batman cartoon which ran at the same time that Adam West and Burt Ward were playing the roles in live action. And then West and Ward reprised the roles for Filmation at the same time that Soule and Kasem were playing them for Hanna-Barbera!

Although in the final couple of seasons of Superfriends, when it got somewhat more sophisticated and was renamed after the Super Powers Team toy line, Adam West played Batman opposite Casey Kasem as Robin. They crossed the streams!

Also, before he played Batman for Filmation, Soule played a newscaster in an episode of the Adam West Batman.
