Trivia

All of the preproduction works were finished for 3 unfinished episodes (The Curse of Kataluna, Turmoil 2: The Revenge, and Doctors of Doom) when SWAT Kats got canceled. These 3 unfinished episodes were written by Glenn Leopold (Story Editor/Writer of SWAT Kats). According to Writer Mark Lungo (who wrote the Animato Magazine Article for behind the scenes of SWAT Kats), Thundertruck that was used in the episode "When Strikes Mutilor" was recreated in the unfinished episode "The Curse of Kataluna" to destroy the villain "Kataluna."

One of the greatest cartoons to grace the TV screen.
22 August 1999 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The series itself has great action, evolved characters, quite original plot and great overall quality. It was so great that a cult built up and written stories emerged.

So what if planes with cats and buildings with cats and machines with cats crash or blow up or burn down or anything like that. Too bad this lasted only too seasons, but those were great, I recommend it to any Sci-Fi lover, cartoon lover and action lover.

To tell you what? it's even funny sometimes. Go see it, wait a second, they cancelled the show for too much violence, you will have to register with Cartoon Network. And with all the other 'Non-interesting' shows they put up on that network, Swat Kats is one great reason to buy a connection.
