Just don't get transferred to Mark Hughes by mistake, or you'll wind up
on the "Return Message" pad as "another one of those SwatKat pests".
Fan-relations at their finest.

Davis is a busy dude with "Jonny" now, and as another of the ex-Kats staffers recently
told me in response to a raft of questions I'd sent over - "SwatKats" was
basically two/three years ago in the memories of these folks, and "I don't
know how much I remember". My favourite response from one of the
production staffers still employed by Tedco goes something like this (in
response to my question: "What do you personally feel about the cancellation?")

" can I put this...we all have to do what we're told, but some shows
  should've gone on longer than they did...."

My second favourite comes from another staffer, also still employed, in response
to my "did you personally like the program compared to, say, the WPT's?":

"Yeah, I don't know why we cancelled 'SwatKats', it was my favourite show.
  The WPT's? Oh yeah, they all suck..."

That was about a year and a couple of witch-hunts ago. Did you know a bunch of
these folks fought for the show after TPS ordered it halted? Guess a sentence to
animation's equivalent of the Eastern Front on "Dumb and Dumber" was their
reward for boat-rocking.
"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
 antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters,
 through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in
 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
