I wish some one would have done this with the original star trek cast before Deforest Kelly passed away. modern animation paired with some of these older genre shows is such a cool idea. I just hope that they tell a really good story that is in keeping with the style of the old show. Or do something like the 5 doctors on Doctor Who and bring in Kevin Conroy, Michael Keaton, and as many who have voiced Batman and have a cross dimensional rift that it is up to Adam West and Burt Ward's version to solve, so they are passing through the dimensions meeting other Batmen.
