Kirk is a jerk
We have a (fairly recent) family ritual of watching cartoons on Saturday or Sunday mornings. The only requirement is that they must be cheesy -- preferably from the 60's and 70's cartoon explosion.
Needless to say, the ST:TAS (the Animated Series) fits into that category perfectly. It's super-cheesy, and routinely stops being even remotely serious (think the level "The Trouble with Tribbles" every 3-4 episodes, except animated). The attached clip is a good indicator (won't show up on planet).
Sadly, we're almost at the end of the TAS run, since it got cancelled after one season. Ah well, I'm sure we can find something equally cheesy to replace it with. Any recommendations for 70's sci-fi cartoons (before the manga explosion)?
