With them gone Megakat City will be ours for the taking! And there’ll be more than enough to go around. Yes, just think of it Viper! An invincible alliance of evil! - Dark Kat
Dark Kat, Dr. Viper and the Metallikats join forces to form an Alliance of Evil with one purpose: destroy the SWAT Kats.
SWAT Kats concludes its first season with the supervillain teamup many fans had been waiting for, as Dark Kat, Dr. Viper and The Metallikats form “an invincible alliance of evil” with only one goal: “Destroy the SWAT Kats!”
Can the SWAT Kats (and Manx, Briggs and Feral) take on four villains at once? And how long can these greedy, selfish evildoers cooperate before they start stabbing each other in the back? This episode has a lot to recommend it besides the Teamup, the pacing is just right, Mook’s animation is great, Feral gives one of his best performances, and the end of the second act is a powerful emotional moment.
Only some inconsistent writing in the third act (Dark Kat gives three contradictory orders within two minutes, and gives away his desire to betray his partners with two “slips of the tongue” to boot) keeps this from getting an A+. A.
Animato summary written by Mark Lungo
This was my father's car." Callie growled through her teeth. "It's got heart. It's made of good, old-fashioned Megakat steel, and I am not replacing it."
"There's a company we work with out of Fursdale which specializes in vintage cars, and they might have parts for this…but they don't come cheap." Larry shrugged. "Sorry, Missus Briggs, but as good as this car used to be, now it's more of a clunker. You'd be better off trading it in...no, scratch that. At this point, it's only good for scrap."
Callie fought down the twitch above her eyelid. Taking in a breath to calm herself, she reached one paw up and removed her glasses, then made a deliberate show of cleaning them.
"Well, for as honest as you're being with me, I think I'll need to seek out a second opinion." She set her glasses back on and stared hard at the older, overweight tom.
"Sure. That's your prerogative." Larry shrugged. "I'm just saying, as it is, you'll be lucky to get another 150 miles out of it. You go anywhere else in town, they'll either laugh you out of the shop or promise you the moon and then rip you off. I'd think seriously about my offer."
Callie chuffed at that. "My father was an auto mechanic for his entire life. He'd roll over in his grave if I accepted your offer."
Larry cracked a smile. "Well. Guess you're out of luck, then. Will you be wanting to drive it out of here then?"
"Take my advice, drive it right to the salvage yard outside of town." Larry chuckled. "Hell. You might even be able to convince those two bums out there to take a crack at it."
