That said, I. Love. It.
Yes, production on the DVDs themselves are crap, but oh Lord, I cannot accurately tell you how I have pined for this, desired it. The moment I heard SWAT Kats was being released on DVD, I broke open my piggy bank with a hammer and collected the means with which to make my dreams come true. I regret nothing. I worried during the delivery period about whether or not this series would stand the test of time and meet my unfair expectations. I worried in vain. Everything I loved about the show is here: T-Bone, Razor, Commander Feral's chin, dinosaurs and skeletons, mummies and aliens, Hard Drive and the Red Lynx... It goes on and on, and my fangirl heart basked in every glorious moment.
Great artwork for the time, memorable characters, plenty of action, one of the best rock intros of the '90s, and hilarious handwave science. Some might be concerned with the level of violence within the show (the very thing that got it canceled despite being highly rated), but I wouldn't worry too much about showing this to your children. Any parent concerned should probably watch beforehand and make that decision themselves.
Fans will weep tears of joy, new viewers will be glued to the screen, and Warner Bros. can keep my money.
The lazy production of the DVD set is the only thing holding my rating back from being a 5/5, but this is a must have.
The animation for the show I'd say is top notch for it's time and one thing that I never seen done in any other animation show is that all episodes are directed by one person. There is only like one minor complaint that I may have with this collection is that there isn't any bonus features with the set like behind the scenes or anything like that. It would have been a little neat feature for that if they could've had something like that but don't let that stop you from picking up what could be the only release of the SWAT Kats on DVD. With this collection I say that it's worth picking up and overall I give this collection 4.5 stars out of 5.
But I'll be perfectly honest, I didn't buy the dvd for the shiny extras, I bought it so I could get my desperately needed SWAT Kats fix again, since Boomerang hasn't shown the series in a few months ( that, and Boomerang doesn't air all of the episodes ).
This is the BEST remedy, every single episode, exactly as I remembered them! GREAT mini stories for every episode, FANTASTIC action sequences and animation for it's time, great voice acting, characters that you grow easily attached to, and come on, JETS AND HEAVY METAL! I just wish they had the chance to finish the series. But at least with SWAT Kats, even though it was cut short, one can imagine their own stories in the way that each episode was made, and it wasn't cut off at a HUGE critical moment ( coughcoughPiratesofDarkWatercoughcough ).
I'd have NO problem showing this to my little nephew and niece. It's the stuff I was raised on, and really, I'd rather them watch SWAT Kats, Biker Mice from Mars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Cowboys of Moo Mesa, and the Pirates of Dark Water than most of the overly disgustingly fluffy stuff that's geared towards kids today. Good old fashioned action cartoons are what's needed again! And SWAT Kats has it! X3
If you're an action cartoon fan or a furry like me, you will definitely love this show a lot.
