I think that there is 23 SWAT Kats episodes + 1 episode where Ann Gora
interview the SwatKats (S.K.I.Q.).

"Unlikely Alloys" was the last SWAT Kats episode to be drawn. "Turmoil II:
Revenge", "Doctors of Doom", "Curse of Kataluna" are the SWAT Kats episodes
that was never finished.

I cann't draw, so any animation is fine with me. :-)

Hmmm, I always wanted to see the kats fighting in the rain.

I think that the first season episodes is dedicated on character building,
while the second season episodes is dedicated for action. Hmmm, I wonder
what will happen in the third season episodes.

That's ok, I'll read your analyses, no matter how technical it is.
