    Yep. The episode is one of the 11 minute ones, and it's called
"SwatKats Unplugged" written by Glenn Leopold.

     I'm going to ask when/why they came up with this idea, but I'll
guess it was a cheap way to get a "new" episode without getting any more
animation done - they just take some scraps to AVID and get the voice
artists to come back in and lay the tracks. I haven't seen it yet, some
kind soul is forwarding me a tape, but from some of the dialogue I've
heard it could actually be more or less adlibbed by Barry G. and Charlie
A. while the tape was running on the editor. "Close out the series"?
Mmm...I'd have to actually see it, but I kind of doubt it's intended that
way. Look at all of us going "cool, something new!" - I'm sure they
realize that lots of other folks think exactly the same thing. I would
even go so far as to suggest that the Brothers Tremblay know nothing
about it.
