Animated Trek Vrs Animated POTA
Time for another point counterpoint thread. In the 70s two very popular series branched into the Saturday morning line up.
First there was Star Trek. Voiced by several of the original actors and written by several series writers this show went were the origional could not go. More creative aliens, more space ships. Not limited by budget constraints. The sad thing is it only went on for 22 episodes.
Next is POTA. I havent seen it recently so I'm going by memory here. This was actually closer to the original book. The Apes had some modern technology. The astronauts, Two men and a woman also salvaged a laser from thier ship. The series expanded on the underdweller/mutants storyline.
There was also a cool WWII salvaged plane and a few mutated creatures one would expect after a few thousand years of radioactivity and evolution.
I liked both. I cant pick a better one. Animation was critisized on both shows but I was happy that they were continued in any form.

Lo there do I see my Father.
Lo there do I see my Mother and my Sisters and my Brothers.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the begining.
Lo they do call me.
They bid me take my place among them.
In the halls of Valhalla where the brave may live forever.
