Dark Kat, the SWAT Kats’ arch-nemesis, has returned. The SWAT Kats must face their own past to stop him from destroying Megakat City with a nuclear bomb.
You are cordially invited to the nuclear fuel rod heist, held by Dark Kat’s professional criminal services company. Please initial next to your death ray heat setting selection (Well Done – Extra Crispy – Vaporized) and kindly respond by September 25, 1993. RSVP due to limited seating. Unlimited attendance is available for the atomic after party. Bring a friend!
Please adjust your humor targeting displays to the lowest common denominator, and note that the accuracy of recollection missiles may vary.
When Dark Kat steals the material for a homemade nuclear bomb to destroy Megakat City, neither the SWAT Kats nor the Enforcers can break through his defenses.
Commander Feral tries to sneak aboard Dark Kat’s ship (a plan even he admits is “desperate and stupid”) and quickly gets captured. The ambitious Lt. Steel (Hal Rayle), Feral’s yuppie scum aide-decamp, would rather advance his career than rescue his boss, so it’s up to the SWAT Kats to save both Feral and Megakat City.
A suspenseful, exciting episode, but what makes it special is a flashback sequence that shows as much of the SWAT Kats’ origin as we’re ever likely to see, which is why this should have been the first episode broadcast.
Appearances: Burke & Murray appear in the flashback.
Animato summary written by Mark Lungo
I dunno. It just seems to me that after dinosaurs, wizards, and giant rampaging germs, the nuclear plant heist and subsequent bomb scare in this episode seems kinda dull.
Don’t get me wrong, Dark Kat is a pretty decent villain, arguably my favorite out of the recurring “rogues’ gallery” types on this show, but his evil plot on this outing leaves a lot to be desired.
