Storyline

The pizza-delivery service Samurai Pizza Cats are also young samurai crime-fighters in their spare time, ready to spring into action from their headquarters above the pizza parlour whenever someone is in trouble. Protecting their myopic Princess and the city from forces led by The Big Cheese, they get into hilarious, action-packed scrapes, but always come out on top, mainly because the baddies are more incompetent than nefarious.

Sheer Genius
26 February 2000 | by (Entwistle, Alberta) – See all my reviews

When this show first premiered in 1991, I immediately didn't watch it, dismissing it as nothing more than a lame "Ninja Turtles" rip-off. But then, on one rainy afternoon, there was nothing else on, and I began to watch it. This show is just SO funny! What other cartoons feature a cross-dressing villain, heroes whose secret identities are exactly the same as their hero personas, and a total babe with a missile launcher in her head that nukes whatever upsets her? I watched it religiously until 1997, when all my local carriers quit showing it. But, trust me, this show is one of the best forgotten gems of animation. And always remember, "although they may be pen and ink, we know they'll fight like...PIZZA CATS!!"
