Did You Know?


Due to high ratings, "SWAT Kats" became the #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 published an extensive article about the show in its in Fall 1994 issue. There was also a "SWAT Kats" ad that was published in "Animation" Magazine (October/November 1994) saying that there will be new episodes and new merchandise for SWAT Kats in 1995. However, the show was shortly canceled, with three unfinished episodes left ("The Curse of Kataluna", "Turmoil 2: The Revenge" and "Doctors of Doom"). See more »

Deserved a better fate
16 April 2005 | by justplainalfSee all my reviews

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.
