Dark Kat, Dr. Viper and the Metallikats join forces to form an Alliance of Evil with one purpose: destroy the SWAT Kats.
Dark Kat and Dr. Viper’s co-agent accidentally double books them on the same heist (how embarrassing), but, they decide to take lemons and turn them into DESTROY THE SWAT KATS. Their new organization, Alliance of Evil LTD., has a lot of overhead to cover, forcing them to cut costs by recycling the Metallikats into their workforce. The SWAT Kats also use some galaxy-brain-tier thinking: the bad guys can’t steal something if you explode it first.
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.
