Re: can the star trek animated series be reanimated?

I think we can all agree that 1970s TV animation was not the industry's finest.

Now, "Lidsville," on the other hand . . .

Cheap is too kind a word for the Hanna-Barbera process, and its leading position as the example of TV animation judged as inferior.
That's true. On the other hand, at least Hanna-Barbera used more actors in its shows than Filmation did. I still remember the difference between the end credits of the two studios' shows -- a Filmation show's voice credits would just list a handful of names, while an H-B show's voice credits would be a long list of names filling a whole screen or two, since they'd list the entire season's voice credits to save the trouble of redoing the end titles episode-by-episode. So maybe they spent so much money on actors that they didn't have as much to spare for animation.

I like the 70s animation - wouldn't want that fine retro art replaced.

Just make a new animated series - maybe TNG: The Animated Series.

And it would still be animation, i.e. not real. Let things be what they are. Now a new animated series, yes, bring it on . . .

Re: can the star trek animated series be reanimated?

Speaking of Saturday morning TV, recently I was watching some Star Trek show (sorry I can't remember exactly what it was... It could have been anything from Insurrection to Abrams Trek, maybe VOY or DS9..) But they were doing a preflight check-list and one of the characters said "...lunch...", then the two smiled at each other and I thought...

"Did they just do a 'Far Out Space Nuts" shout-out??"

Hmm, possible, but that joke was probably a "old" joke at White Sands and other early test sites decades before the Sid and Marty Kroft series.

Sincerely,

Bill
