Filmation Associates Turn Graphics ON!


  The Animated STAR TREK series was produced in 1973 and 1974 by an animation production company called Filmation Associates. Filmation was founded in 1963 by radio announcer Norman Prescott, former Bozo the Clown animator Lou Scheimer and former Disney animator Hal Sutherland. The fledgling outfit began by doing animated commercials and documentaries until 1965 when the company made a successful bid to produce an animated Superman television series.

  For the next 23 years Filmation produced several dozen animated series which usually aired on Saturday mornings. While many people find fault with Filmation's cost-cutting animation techniques, they have to admit that Filmation produced exciting, fun and very imaginative shows that are remembered very fondly by those who grew up watching them.

  Below is an alphabetical listing of the shows and specials produced by Filmation. The names in the list link into a chronological list of the shows. In the future, this page will feature descriptions of the show, pictures from them and links to any web sites with additional information.

  As with STAR TREK in 1973, several of Filmation's animated series were cartoon versions of popular live-action television series. Those series that fall into this category are marked with an asterisk below.
