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."

Extremely well-rendered cartoon, with good characters. They did a good job with the "double-life" of the main kats: mechanics by day, vigilantes by night (usually). The bad guys could be a bit formulaic, and the show sometimes got a bit tech-happy ("check out THIS weapon"), but for the most part, a good show. It always seemed to be on at the wrong time - way too early, and paired up with "2 Stupid Dogs". Rumor has it Ted Turner caught an episode and ordered it yanked. The final episode was a hastily-thrown-together "best of" show, which was even lamer than most attempts at same. That shouldn't detract from it being remembered as a great series from the early days of the cartoon renaissance.
