With the exception of 4 episodes, animation for SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron's first season was done by Hanho Heung-Up, an animation studio based in Seoul, South Korea, that had worked on shows such as The Real Ghostbusters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Christian Tremblay, co-creator of SWAT Kats, has publicly stated his disappointment with the quality of Hanho Heung-Up. Despite Season One's animation issues, it features some of SWAT Kats most memorable and important stories and characters, and is considered by some to overall have stronger writing than Season Two. Season One aired in Fall 1993 for 13 total episodes.
MOOK DLE INC., which had animated 4 episodes of Season One, was chosen for the entirety of Season Two of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron, and is responsible for establishing the show's more Anime-inspired look that features darker aesthetics and more crisp and fluid sequences. MOOK was also tasked with creating a new show opener, which also featured a new musical theme composed by guitarist John Zuker, and also saw the introduction of new character Lt. Felina Feral. In total, 10 episodes of Season Two aired in Fall 1994 (two of them made up of half-sized "mini-episodes"), but was cancelled before 3 of the unproduced episodes could be sent to MOOK.
The clip show, which did not appear in syndicated reruns, was intended to serve as a lead-in to Season Two, but did not actually air until the end of Season Two. Its actual existence was questioned by fans for several years until its appearance on the DVD release of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron in 2012.
The following are unproduced episodes of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron, originally intended to closeout Season Two. According to production staff sources, Succubus! and Turmoil 2: The Revenge were Story Boarded, Modeled, and had Voice Actor recordings, but were not musically scored, foleyed, or sent to MOOK for animation. The Doctors of Doom exists as a treatment and was not finalized into a finished script. A script for an episode titled Blowout! (written by Lance Falk) was changed to the Season One finale Katastrophe (written by Glenn Leopold). Unused premises for episodes titled Cold War and Blackout were proposed by Lance Falk, but no production materials aside from sketches are known to exist for them.
