What's a SWAT Kat?
So, who are these "SWAT Kats"? Are they still on television? Where can I buy the show's merchandise? Did it have merchandise? Where can I buy copies of the episodes? Where can I find more information?
I don't begin to claim to have the answers to all things SWAT Kat... but I can answer the above to the best of my knowledge! Just look below!
General Information on the Show and Its Characters
About This SWAT Kats Show... -- An explanation of the plot and characters of the show.
Excerpt from "Television Cartoon Shows: An Illustrated Encyclopedia, 1940-1993" -- SWAT Kats' entry from a cartoon encyclopedia. Includes a mildly scathing review of the show, but is well worth the read for its behind-the-scenes information.
Toon Magazine Article -- Presented as a counterpoint to the previous review, a highly favorable review of SWAT Kats, written after the airing of both seasons. Contributed by Ambre Wisniewski and Felonykat.
Information from an AOL Posting
-- I found this years ago tucked away in some sort of files/downloads section
placed with an AOL message board for SWAT Kats. I don't know where it came from
or who wrote it. But, it presents some interesting, if only debatedly canon,
information. Should anyone know the originator of this so that I can give them
credit, please contact me.
SWAT Kats Stuff
The Product Line -- A listing of the SWAT Kats merchandise that was produced complete with as many images as I could scan from my own collection or otherwise acquire.
- All 26 episodes of SWAT Kats have been officially released in a 5 disc DVD set from the Warner Bros. Shop Online.
- If you're looking for the older official SWAT Kat VHS releases, your best bet is to search sites like Ebay using the words "SWAT Kats" and any variant of it you can think of, like "SWAT Cats" or "SWATKats."
For Further Information...
SWAT Kats is currently available streaming on VRV. And, to see if it's returned to television, you can consult the shedule at Cartoon Network's site.
For the most complete compilation of SK information available, including any current news, go to The SWAT Kats Encyclopedia.
- Why was SWAT Kats taken off the air? Well, I've never heard the official word, but to see the best explanation I've found (in my opinion the best), go to an interview with the former president of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc.
