After fleeing the country because reasons we’ve discussed, Drizzle Sez hit me up to discuss a lot of things in this new PA. Don’t worry; we’ll get back to our other topics, maybe. And The Gingawd isn’t going anywhere. Anyways…
Drizzle: You know that, down in DR, they’ve got SWAT Kats.
Speed: You lucky bastard. You know how much ’90s nostalgia makes me giddy.
Drizzle: Somehow, this one, born as a clusterfuck rip-off of Ninja Turtles and Top Gun–you see where this is going. You know, we really need intro music.
Speed: We really do. Maybe I can ask one of the Indie Showcase folks. But, they’ll probably want money and I don’t have enough of that. We probably need to start slanging dick for freedom–
Speed: I’ll explain it later.
Drizzle: Anyway, SWAT Kats evolved into a cult classic from a hodgepodge of ripped-off fuckery. In other words, it’s American Gold.
Speed: Power Rangers, anyone? But, yeah. That’s why I’m confused as to why
- SWAT Kats doesn’t get the credit it deserves for being able to be original as fuck while still being a “rip-off.”
I mean, let’s look at Darkwing Duck.
I love Darkwing Duck, the show. But, it’s a rip-off of Batman and The Shadow. Somehow, probably because Disney, the show still ended up on DVD, Disney tends to release everything they own at some point, aside from A Goofy Movie being on Netflix and/or Hulu like that. This leads me to point two.
- Why isn’t SWAT Kats streaming in America when there’s so much crap that could be taken off in favor of something that’s actually good and not just good because #Nostalgia.
