So long SWAT Kats. Too bad you didn’t live long enough to see Megakat City become Dr. Viper’s Mutation City! - Dr. Viper
Dr. Viper uses Katalyst X-63 to flood Megakat City, turning it into a toxic swamp filled with dangerous, mutated creatures.
Dr. Viper floods Megakat City with a “hideous mutating ooze” that transmogrifies ordinary animals into (what else?) giant monsters.
With the city submerged in slime and infested by huge, repulsive creatures, the SWAT Kats undertake the perilous mission of reaching Megakat Biochemical Labs, where they must retrieve an anti-mutagen that can change everything back to normal. Complications: 1. T-Bone, who can’t swim, nearly drowns in the muck. 2. Later, T-Bone becomes a mutant when one of the monsters bites him. (T-Bone’s really having a bad day, isn’t he?) 3. Viper eventually uses the mutagen to turn himself into a Godzilla-sized monstrosity.
This is no classic, but it keeps your attention. It’s also Felina Feral’s debut episode , ironically, she’s first seen rescuing Callie Briggs, whom she replaced as SWAT Kats’ major heroine. B
Trivia: Callie’s communications link with the SWAT Kats is supposed to be a secret, but her she not only uses her communicator in front of Mayor Manx, but she also lets him use it.
Animato summary written by Mark Lungo
We are the 73% who live marginally tolerable lives compared to the rest of the world," The Commander pounded his steering wheel with gusto, "We deserve better!"
"I mainly just care about myself, sir."
"This city deserves a leader who cares about its katizens following the rules! A leader who is tough, but fair. A leader who has a keen sense of justice, and the toughness to carry it out. One who will set up a perimeter first and ask questions later. It needs someone who's unafraid to do the right thing… toughly!"
"Hey ya' moron!"
The blare of a car horn was followed by a flurry of expletives, all coming from the Boy Scout carpool directly behind them, "Move your dual-exhaust eco-killer out of the way! We're calling the Enforcers!"
"Do you hear that, Steele?"
"Yes, quite clearly, Commander."
"They're calling for us. This populace is unruly and belligerent, because it's at the breaking point. It needs *me* to whip it back into shape."
