While we are on the thread of the SWAT Kats version of "Peter and the
Wolf", here's some of my opinion on the instruments.

Peter and the Wolf?... Ahahaha, I remember music class in 4th grade, where 
the teachers made us lie on the floors with our eyes closed as we listened; 
later we had to "identify as many instruments as you can." :P

Dana Uehara:
I keep thinking that a *kazoo* would fit Madkat more than anything else.  

Agreed. Definitely a kazoo, or any kind of instruments that suggest
malavolent, chaotic, mischevious forces.

Hmm... maybe a  kazoo (Freakazoo!) or maybe a synthesizer, that plays all 
sorts of honky-tonk?

Lt. Steel is an accordion. He's loud and annoying.

Oh, yes, <claps> I like it! :)

As I said I chose the tuba mainly for T-Bone because of the driving
ability it has, and the tuba can exert a lot of raw power when it needs
too, like a tympani can.

I don't know about a tuba for T-Bone, but a tuba can be played to represent
laziness and sluggishness like the theme of Jabba The Hutt in "Return of
the Jedi". But if the music is written to suggest power, I'm all for it!

Mmmm... tuba... That's a problem, I'm in *orchestra* with no brass... that's 
for the band... (Ahhh, no! I'm hearing "Louie, Louie" again!)

I dunno... maybe a duet or even a trio of instruments would work better for 

The instrument for Razor should suggest intelligence, agility and kindness,
but I can't think of any instruments. Violin perhaps?

Oh yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah!!! (No prizes for guessing what *I* play, 
huh? ;))

Another Sailor Moon Reference: Kaiou Michiru, Sailor Neptune, plays the 
violin. And, basically, she's a lot like Razor/Jake in some ways--very 
smart, somewhat quiet, and (I don't know if this goes for Jake) into the arts.

I'm thinking in terms of music, not instruments. So my remarks may seem
However, I did hear some themes written specifically for moods in SWAT
- The chase theme earlier in the episode of "The Giant Bacteria"
- The buddy-rivalry theme of the SWAT Kats in "The Wrath of DK" (The
Chilli-Chomping Contest) and "Pastmaster Always Ring Twice" (The 5-Gs

Ooooh, those were two of my favs! Funny! ;D

- The Razor-&-Queen-Callista love theme in "Bride of Pastmaster", just
before T-Bone interrupted asking Razor for help in the repairs.

Oh yeah, another fav... "G'night, m'Queen," in a real sarcastic way!

- The Metallikats Theme, used every time when they appear. Techno music
that sounds like metals hitting against something.

I haven't watched any eps for a while (before you try to kill me, let me 
tell you it's not entirely my fault. The teachers give us too much homework!!)

I dunno but I prefer the music of SK:The Movie be kind of Star-Wars-ish
where everyone and every scene has their own theme music to suit.

Yeah... and everyone has their own theme! (Or would that be too much to ask?)
