Saturday morning cartoons live in The Animated Adventures of the Starship Farragut
When I was a kid I loved many a television Saturday morning cartoon series, one of those that stands out in my mind was Filmation’s Star Trek: The Animated Series. So when I was doing a bit of research on a related article dealing with Christopher Doohan’s upcoming appearance in J.J. Abram’s Star Trek: Into Darkness, I came across The Animated Adventures of the Starship Farragut, which Doohan also lent his voice acting talents to. Simply put, WOW!
Created by John Broughton’s (who portrays Captain John Carter in Starship Farragut & in The Animated Series), Farragut Films and NEO/fx, the Animated Adventures of the Starship Farragut, is created in the style of the original Star Trek: The Animated Series and also features the voice acting talents of acclaimed Star Trek alumni, Tim Russ, the beautiful Chase Masterson and Christopher Doohan.
Any fan of the Star Trek animated series of the 1970’s, will really be impressed with the Animated Adventures of the Starship Farragut as was I! It captures the mood, style, pace and fun of the original Trek animated series while giving Trek fans a new crew to fall in love with.
Teaming up with NEO f/x, Broughton’s Farragut Films has also created Star Trek: Continues, which Christopher Doohan also stars in, as well as its sister fan series Starship Farragut, in which John Broughton himself stars. This is what love of a genre can produce; well done, enjoyable Star Trek adventures which have a high production quality, sticks to the values of the original Trek and letsthe Saturday morning kid in all of us come out and play! Well done and I look forward to more in the near future!
