Did You Know?


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."

Radical Cartoon!
9 September 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

Swat Kats is one of the other best cartoon action shows ever! This show is about two cats named Chance Furlong (T-Bone) and Jake Clawson (Razor) who are auto-mechanics by day but when there is trouble in MegaKat City they are the Swat Kats who are a masked duo of heroes who defend MegaKat City from criminal master minds and monsters. The show is well-crafted, meticulously-animated children's science-fiction in faithful anime style, with well-rounded characters, ongoing story lines and rakes of humor. This is one of the best cartoons of the 90's made by the company of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons! I thought the show was just awesome! I thought all of the gadgets that the Swat Kats had were cool and I really liked their jet, The Turbokat. It is to bad that they canceled it because it got canceled in 1995 after 2 seasons and 23 episodes, the same year my other two favorite shows were canceled. My other two favorite shows that got canceled the same year as the SWAT Kats were Sonic the Hedgehog and Darkwing Duck. I thought all the SWAT Kats villains were pretty cool, my two favorite were Dark Kat and Dr. Viper! I thought The Pastmaster was cool looking but his plans for taking over MegaKat City is really stupid. One character I am also not very fond of is Commander Farrell. The reason why I don't like Commander Farrell is because he is always wanting to take all the credit and the glory from the SWAT Kats. But he can be okay sometimes. I wish that someday they would bring this show back on the air and make more new episodes!
