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!
