I recently checked out the animated Star Trek series on Netflix. I had only seen one episode decades ago and I only had dim memories of it. The animation is very limited with a lot of re-used footage and static poses, but I must say that it was fun to have the original cast providing the voices. I also liked the addition of truly alien looking crew members years before such a thing would happen in live action. It's a fun glimpse into the past, but I would only recommend it for die-hard Trek fans. The Looney Tunes cartoons are a different story altogether. While they predate the Trek series, they hardly seem dated to me at all. I can pop in one of the collections and they impress and amuse me as much as the first time I watched them.
