** Website/SFDebris discusses this in his review of the TOS episode "Space Seed", noting that it's amazing what you could get away with in 1960s television when the screens were much smaller, often blurry, and frequently still in black and white.

** The Disney seasons became more notorius for this than the Fox seasons; this becomes blatant in the Operation Overdrive episode that teams up JohnnyYongBosch and four Disney rangers. When the five have an unmorphed fight in a warehouse, Bosch is the only one whose face can be clearly seen at all times.

** The obvious use of stunt-doubles is (like absolutely everything else on the screen) a target for nitpicking. An episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' reflects most people's view of the importance of this as ultra-nerd Neil Goldman delivers a lecture on instances of WilliamShatner using a stunt double on ''Star Trek'' to his bored classmates. With tragic inevitability, someone on Wikipedia has in fact pointed out that that particular episode didn't feature any stunt work so the Family Guy writers are wrong (!)

** Creator/DanielCraig and PierceBrosnan claim to have multiple scars from their stuntwork. Brosnan in fact busted his ankle during filming the pre-titles sequence for ''Film/DieAnotherDay'', requiring production to be shut down for a week while he had surgery.

Traditionally, female actors were often doubled by small male stunt artists, due to no woman with the required skills being available, or the stunts being considered "[[MenAreTheExpendableGender too dangerous]]" for a woman. This still happens but is increasingly controversial, as the increasing number of female professional stunt artists consider it to be sex discrimination.
