Filmation rotoscoped three live action USS Enterprise shots from the original show to use as stock animation. The shots rotoscoped were the ones where the Enterprise is coming toward camera in orbit (used in most of the original shows), the shot where the camera zooms in on the top of the Enterprise (where the bridge is) seen in full on "Star Trek" The Cage (1966) and a shot of the Enterprise zooming toward camera which also came from "The Cage" and was used rarely as stock footage.

Well, I really must disagree with the Late Great Bird of the Galaxy (*). He said that this series should not be canon, but I think it should.
The stories were good, including many of the original writers, and even a story by Hugo/Nebula award winner, Larry Niven. The animation was - well - let's say Disney animation tastes like a fine, high quality, Austrian cake, and ST's animation tastes like cardboard.
If you are a ST-TOS fan, well, get every single episode here.
If you are a ST-TNG+ fan, try one out, preferably Yesteryear, or More Tribbles, and then decide if you want to see more. There are some silly ones.
