List Of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron Episodes
The following is a complete list of episodes for SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron, a television cartoon series created by Christian and Yvon Tremblay. SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron premiered on TBS Superstation's The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera block in the United States on September 11, 1993 and ended on January, 1995.
The series consists of a total of 25 original episodes over two seasons, including four "half" episodes (SWAT Kats Unplugged, Cry Turmoil, Volcanus Erupts! and The Origin of Dr. Viper – running around 15 minutes in length) aired during the second season. A "documentary" episode featuring clips from previous episodes aired after the final episode Unlikely Alloys as a sort of closer once the series was cancelled. This brings the total number of broadcast episodes to 26. There were also three episodes in production at the time of the series' cancellation as well as two that never made it past the concept stage. The first season consists of thirteen episodes; the second season consists of twelve episodes. Also, the show's distinctive opening and closing theme music changed during production of the second season to a heavier, more metal-influenced theme, as well as the character design became more angular.
Every episode of the series was directed by Robert Alvarez. The bulk of the series was written by either Glenn Leopold (13 episodes) or Lance Falk (6 episodes). Jim Stenstrum contributed two episodes, while David Ehrman, Von Williams, Eric Clark (with Lance Falk), Mark Saraceni and Jim Katz all contributed one episode. Lance Falk's ideas were usually very ambitious and very inventive and this usually met with the studio executives telling him to change his ideas to something more simple, such as making the Aquians "kat" aliens instead of humans in When Strikes Mutilor or to cut out entire characters and subplots, such as making Commander Feral the one Turmoil successfully corrupts in Cry Turmoil
The cancellation of the series occurred near the end of season two's production. The reason why is not exactly known, but the show's violence, declining viewership and its inability to move merchandise have been cited as the most likely causes.
