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
Burke knelt down and pulled back a ratty-looking rug, revealing what appeared to be a kathole cover or a hatch of some kind. Murray blinked.
"It looks like a hatch."
"I know," Burke replied. "What I don't know is what it's doin' in the middle of the floor here in their pad."
Murray scratched his head under his cap, thinking. He suddenly snapped his fingers. "I know what it is!"
"What?" asked Burke.
"This place used to be a base or something like that back in Mega War II, and it had a big underground bunker and stuff like that," his brother said. Burke's eyebrows furrowed under his cap. "I used to ta' have the skematics of the place from the city hall of records, but I lost 'em."
"So you're sayin' there's a whole underground complex under our feet that nobody's been down to in over fifty years?" There was wonderment in Burke's voice.
"Yup," said Murray. "And I'll bet ya two cans of tuna that that's where those jerks Clawson and Furlong are hidin'!"
