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 »
I have watched SWAT Kats the Radical Squadron since they first come out and I have all of the episodes on tapes galore. They need to be put back on the air because they were a better cartoon then some of the other stuff that presently airs on Cartoon Network. The SWAT Kats' show had terrific music, and the characters were so complex that many people could think of their origins and how they were. The episodes were intense, mysterious, action packed and scary in some of them. Each episode had a moral and was great for children to watch. Robert Alvarez needs to make more episodes of them and keep them alive, that's all they need is more episodes and they would be one of the biggest hits on Cartoon Network if Ted Turner wasn't stupid enough to knock them off.
