Trivia

In 2009 interview with Lance Falk (Writer and Design Coordinator of SWAT Kats), Lance Falk said that the way he heard about the reason behind the cancellation of SWAT Kats was that Ted Turner himself simply thought the show was too violent for kids. When SWAT Kats got canceled, there was a paragraph from Ted Turner in "Entertainment Weekly" (early 1995), entitled "Ted's Excellent Speaking Engagement" concerning cartoon violence: "We have more cartoons than anybody: The Flintstones, The Jetsons, the Smurfs, Scooby-Doo. They're nonviolent. We don't have to worry that we're encouraging kids to kill each other - like SOME of the other cartoon programs do". See more »

Funny, slick, <insert appropriate superlative here> cartoon
13 June 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This has got to be my favourite cartoon of all time. I had to watch reruns on power zone's midnight run recently, but it was worth staying up for the swat kats.

It has great music, cool characters, witty dialogue, lots of action and is just a really slick show overall. The artwork on was very good - right from razor and t-bone to the jet to the whole look of mega-kat city.

Mega Kat City was disaster prone, but swat kats managed to be cartoonish and suitable for kids without degenerating into the silliness or stupidity. It never failed to be funny and stylish.

I wish I could find it somewhere on DVD to buy.
