* LighterAndFluffier: One of the main reasons given by Creator/GeneRoddenberry as to why he chose Creator/{{Filmation}} out of all the animation companies who made a pitch at doing ''The Animated Series'' is because they were the only company who didn't suggest giving the ''Enterprise'' crew "funny animal sidekicks". Interestingly, ''after'' getting the job, the idea apparently did surface at pre-production meetings... but it was quickly (and rightly) kyboshed by Roddenberry. Regardless, Filmation didn't let the concept of "funny sidekicks in space" go to waste, and created the live-action series ''Series/SpaceAcademy'' a few years later.

Added DiffLines:

** Dawson Walking Bear (Comanche) was originally supposed to be in "The Patient Parasites". Fontana didn't really know what to do with him, but Russell Bates (Kiowa) included him in "How Sharper". He appears in three ''Star Trek: Phase Two'' fan film episodes. He is played by [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3900115/ Wayne W. Johnson]], who says he actually has no Native heritage.

-->'''Sulu''': It would have looked nice in some museum.
-->'''Spock''': It never would have reached a museum, Lieutenant. There was too much power in that one setting. If not the Kzinti, the Klingons or some other species would have tried to possess it.

Element" took place on the water world Argo.
* OffModel: In addition to ''incredibly'' LimitedAnimation, one of the producers was colorblind, so everyone but Sulu and Uhura was absolutely ''chalk white.'' Colors of things established in the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries live-action series]] would be altered so you'd wind up saying "what do you mean that episode had [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Orions]]?" The Kzinti - a warlike enemy race who'd supposedly plagued mankind for a hundred years or more - dressed in very {{Narm}}ful ''hot pink uniforms.'' A lot of notorious animation errors require the pause button, but this ain't that. The animation was ''farcically'' bad throughout every episode ever. Yeah, it's good that ''Franchise/StarTrek'' didn't die after all, but dude. Can we at least ''leave the color decisions to the guys who can see colors?''
** Two words: Pink Tribbles.
** In the mid to late 1970s, some selected reproduced cels were offered for sale through Gene Roddenbury's Lincoln Enterprises. One of these was a shot of Spock in front of the Guardian of Forever pointing at another character with a six fingered hand.
** One shot of Scotty operating the transporter switched to an over-the-shoulder shot of the mustached Mr Kyle, making it look like Mr Scott had a mustache. [[HilariousInHindsight Fast foward to 1979 in which James Doothan actually does have one]].
