Due to high ratings, SWAT Kats became the no.1 syndicated animated show of 1994. The results were approved by Nielsen Television Index (NTI) and Nielsen Syndication Service (NSS). Due to the success, Toon Magazine released a huge article about SWAT Kats in Fall 1994. There was also a SWAT Kats ad that was published in Animation Magazine (October/November issue - 1994) saying that there will be new episodes and new merchandise for SWAT Kats in 1995. But the show immediately got canceled with 3 unfinished episodes (The Curse of Kataluna, Turmoil 2: The Revenge, and Doctors of Doom). See more »

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.
