Evil’ll Be There For You

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.

The Death of Comedy

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get revenge against those who imprisoned it! INSERT LAUGHTER. It’s open mic night at the Megakat Asylum, and when a lone orderly heckles the talent, it sets off a series of “comedic” hi-jinks that dares our heroes to try not to laugh. As they say, revenge is a dish best served dry.
