I have just started watching Star Trek: The Animated Series and was wondering if any of the stories come from unused scripts from TOS? So far it is as fun and camp as the TV show and the few episodes I have seen certainly fit with the original.

There were in fact a few episodes that had their plots drawn from material rejected for Star Trek: The Original Series, primarily episodes that served as sequels to previous ones. The episodes More Troubles, More Tribbles, The Magicks of Megas-tu, Once Upon a Planet, and Mudd's Passion were all originally conceived as episodes of The Original Series, though several of them were nothing more than a vague plot suggestion rather than a full script.
