It's a promo for the daily SWAT KATS strip that starts this week on the
Cartoon Network (6:00pm ET, weekdays).

It's actually the opening chord of the first season, sustained for a few
extra seconds, with the voice-over and a jet engine FX dubbed over it. It
sounds way-cool when played through a set of BIG speakers (lots of low-
frequency reverb). :) They use the cat-logo in the same way they use the
Warner shield/Batman logo in the Batmarn cartoon series. Looks spiffy!

I just got a sound card for my PC, and I'm about to get the software that
will allow me to create Video for Windows (AVI) files. *IF* I can get all
the pieces to work, I'll try to capture this promo to an AVI file. Keep
your paws crossed, Kat-fans!

Heh, yeah, and the narrator says, "Okay, we'll give equal time to cats..."
That's another good spot.

Maybe. But, like I said before, the people running the Cartoon Network
seem to have their own agenda, and are promoting the heck out of the Kats.
Whether this will make any difference remains to be seen.
