Imagine....You are 13 years old and your sitting there on a Saturday morning eating your King Vitamin cereal watching a television special on the new programming coming on Saturday morning when BAM!.....
The Enterprise flies across your screen in all of it's cartoon glory!
Same here. And in Australia, we didn't get colour TV till late 1975, so my random eps of TAS on a Saturday morning were in glorious b/w!
Then, in 1976, TAS episodes were stripped five days-a-week on breakfast television. We couldn't wait to see "Albatross" again, just to see the characters turn different colours (instead of shades of grey), and then, in 1980, I recall spending several days searching toyshops for the View-Master reels of "Mr Spock's Time Trek" (adapting "Yesteryear"), and months
trying to find matching editions of all ten "Star Trek Logs". In Australia, we had Ballantine (with no #10), Corgi UK, and the republished Ballantine/Del Rey editions.
