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.

Trivia

The person who sings the English version of the series' intro song sounds a lot like Fred Schneider, the lead singer of the B-52s. However, the singer is in fact the show's English dub writer Michael Airington who did an imitation of comedian Paul Lynde while drunk to get the right humorous tone for the singer-narrator's voice in the English dub of the show's intro .

About Samurai Pizza Cats
1 February 1999 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

Samurai Pizza Cats was originally made by Tatsunoko Studios in Japan as "Cat Ninden Teyande". Saban bought the rights to dub the show, and has made English, French, German, Spanish, and Hebrew dubs. The dubbed version, "Samurai Pizza Cats" was produced by Andy Thomas, who had new stories written to match the animation. This was very well done (in fact the lip synic is often better, since the writers matched the dialoge to the mouth movements) and resulted in a very funny show. Although Saban marketed the show for children, the show has humour that can be enjoyed by all ages. Most fans of the show are actually teens and young adults. The show features heroic cats in armor (who also run a pizza shop), a villain who enjoys cross-dressing, ninja crows who build giant robots, and a sarcastic narrator. If it's ever on where you live, don't be put off by Saban's dumb ads, it's actually a very fun show for kids or adults.
