    Nor can I ;->

    I think I know what Edo's getting at. I say it wouldn't work for the
mentioned continuity glitches.

    However the villians have been shown to endure some mighty powerful
explosions. Doctor Viper made it through the destruction of the labs (another
timeline landmark, or were they rebuilt soon afterward?), Hard Drive survived
a bazooka blast (But he was a bunch of electrons at the time of the detonation.)
It appears that explosions are really only deadly when it jives with the plot.

    But I'd say that the explosion in Katastrophe was meant to be the fatal
kind in which case the part about the villians dying could work, but the fact
that the SWAT Kats have the TurboKat rebuilt in When Stikes Mutilor puts a
monkey wrench in that idea. What would be a fairly big continuity glitch is
the season ][ Glovatrix design, but then again the Doctor Viper origin episode
predates all of the second season and much of the first, but that design is
still there.

    Boy, do we ever need a precision timeline here.

    But the Pastmaster timeline is so convoluted already that it's not that
serious a glitch.

    Yep. And the squares should be red and blue. Perhaps the game could
incorporate all the characters by allowing the players to choose the pieces?
It could get confusing if you let it, but it'd be more fun that way.

    Does this mean they told someone in Japan "We want you to get a dozen of
the cels and ship 'em, but don't dare send any more than that."? I'm not an
expert, but I'd think if any made it over, then tons more might be available.

    I've also been curious as to the treatment of animation art in Japan. On
the one hand I'm thinking they love it and probably respect it and treat the
cels well, and other the other hand they crank out so much that they might not
be able to keep all of it, so the foreign materials, not matter how good they
might look would get tossed out first. Anyone know more about this, cuz I'm
about the most opposite of an expert as there ever was.

    At least you can *get* TCN. =-<
