Trivia

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."

One word: Wow
21 May 2004 | by (Bolton, England) – See all my reviews

What an INCREDIBLE show!

Too bad only 2 seasons of episodes were made and it was taken off the air for unknown reasons. I guess some people thought it was a little too mature for the audience of cartoon network.

I remember when I was 15 or so I used to watch the Swat Kats TWICE a day, EVERY day (that's as often as the episodes were shown). I loved it and I was addicted to it! My heart was broken when I found out they're taking it off.

The animation, music, character voices were done incredibly well. The plot was ever - entertaining and written very carefully. It was always solid, never tedious or silly or annoying.

Simply put, it was just a pleasure to watch the Swat Kats - from the beginning scene - the awesome episode opener with the incredible background music - to the very end of every episode with the swat kats kicking tail and saving megakat city.

I loved everything in it - the cool gadgets, the turbokat (swat kats' airplane), the characters...

Well this is getting a bit too long.

Just go and see it if you can find it somewhere!
