Presented by the Warner Archive section of WBShop.com, SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron, after two decades of waiting, is finally available for purchase on DVD.
Deadly bacteria! Doomsday devices! Robotic spiders! Sound like a big budget sci-fi thriller?
Nope. Even better. It’s the 5-Disc, 26-Episode Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron Complete Series Collection.
Chance Furlong and Jake Clawson appear to be ordinary junkyard auto mechanics until trouble occurs in Megakat City. In a flash they fly their high-tech Turbokat toward danger as T-Bone and Razor: the Swat Kats.
The city is run by the power-hungry Commander Feral and his militant team of Megakat Enforcers. Jake and Chance were once Enforcers but Feral demoted them to working in the scrap yard, where the Swat Kats were born.
They take on any kind of menace from the undead sorcerer Pastmaster to lobster-like alien warlord Mutilor. The hardware-heavy action never stops in this animated fan-favorite from Hanna-Barbera Studios that’s fur-flying fun!
Important Note: This film has been manufactured from the best-quality video master currently available and has not been remastered or restored specifically for this DVD and Digital Download release.
SHIPS TO U.S. DESTINATIONS ONLY
The DVDs are region free, so they should play anywhere in the world. WBshop.com does NOT ship outside of the United States, so if you’re outside of the U.S. you would have to purchase through Amazon.com. There’s more information about their shipping rates and delivery times here.
Unfortunately, the only language the DVDs have is English, with no subtitles.
Interesting in hindsight, just prior to the DVD release, a fan who wishes to remain anonymous supplied SWATKATS.info with this copy of a written response they received: a letter concerning a DVD release of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squardon from a representative of Warner Home Video. The status has since changed as DVDs are now available for purchase at WBSHOP.com’s online store.
