...The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty, about a live-action cat who had cartoon daydreams about being various adventure heroes, including Catman, Catzan, Robin Cat, the Lone Kitty... and Captain Hurk of the starship Secondprize. (I'm often surprised that Waldo Kitty isn't better-known within Trek fandom.)
One will notice that all those characters are parodies from properties Filmation adapted over the years. One of the two Captain Hurk adventures had some noticeable elements of Flash Gordon in it even though that project was still a few years done the road. (Maybe Filmation had already secured the rights.) Kinda' tricky to depict a "Vulcan" when all of your crew already possess pointed ears. The "bowl cut" hairstyle drove home the point yeah enough. My fading memories may be playing tricks on me, but I seem to recall the science officer sounded more like Henry Kissinger than Leonard Nimoy.

Sincerely,

Bill
