Who says it has too sell to *that* market? There's an entire generation of
kids growing up and being exposed to action adventure stuff that blows away
what we saw in the eighties, especially anime. With the way animation is
growing and changing in America, there has to be a breaking point. SWAT Kats:
The Radical Movie would serve the purpose of linking the kids programming and
the hard edged action adventure, it could play a *very* important role in the
growth and evolution of American animated features.
