A Bright and Shiny Future
I just had to see the look on your faces when you saw the future I arranged for you. Now, I’ll return to mess up your past! - The Pastmaster
The Pastmaster allies with the Metallikats to create a dystopian future controlled by robots to entrap the SWAT Kats.
The Pastmaster sends T-Bone and Razor to Megakat City’s near future, a nightmare world where The Metallikats rule as fascist dictators, killer robots confine “non-metallic creatures” to slave labor camps, the SWAT Kats’ friends are fugitive freedom fighters, and the SWAT Kats’ future selves are dead.
This is one of SWAT Kats’ highlights; the story is intriguing, the team up of high tech and magical villains is unique within the series, Mook’s animation is excellent, and the art staff really earn their pay in creating the dystopian setting. A.

Callie blinked. "No?"
"I don't want any investigation!" Manx was practically standing on Callie's desk now. "That will definitely drive Mr. Young away!"
"How could it? We've been in worse situations than this! And, if we don't do something soon, the city will shut down!"
"I don't care! We can't involve the Enforcers in any type of investigation, no matter how trivial." Manx looked even more nervous. "Is there anything else we can do?"
"Well..." Callie paused as if to contemplate something. "Feral did tell me that there was one account Hard Drive couldn't get into because he was discovered. We might be able to float the city on that account."
Manx sighed, and then shrugged his shoulders. "Fine. Do it. I'll leave it you."
Callie crossed her arms. "And if we run out of money?"
"I'm sure you'll be able to figure something out, my dear." Manx walked toward Callie's office door. "Now if you'll excuse me, I have a golf game to attend to."
