New Christian Tremblay interview and other news

Toonami Faithful has done an interview with Christian Tremblay. Listen to it here.

In other news, Glen Leopold (the writer for the original series) has stated he too will be working with the Tremblays on the new SWAT Kats as stated in one of the Kickstarter updates.

In defense of the new concepts

It seems that some people were upset over the new character design of T-Bone for the SWAT Kats Revolution campaign.

Quite honestly, it's different and wasn't what I was expecting, but I think people need to get over it. The series is the Tremblay's vision, they should be allowed creativity and vision in its new show.

Don't forget that they have to rope in newer audiences as well; pandering to the old one will just beg for a cancellation on major toon networks.

Huh...

Apparently this video was released a few days ago.


Now, it's already July and it seems there's no other information about this, so I'm a bit skeptical myself.

Of course I found out about this because Yvon Tremblay posted this on his FB page, so we could be pleasantly surprised.

So long, and thanks for all the fish...

There comes a point in life where you realize that something that was once your muse has become a chore.

Simply put, my interest in SWAT Kats is... gone; and updating the blog has become a chore.

I'm not sure why it happened. Maybe I've just grown tired of waiting.

Let's face it: I've been working this blog for almost half a decade and all we have to show for it is some vague mumblings about a Kickstarter campaign that comes... sometime in the future. When you see the same show and dance for the last three or four years, you begin to wonder if it will ever happen. Yes, they've said they're working on a Felix the Cat project, but there isn't even news about that, meaning it will probably be years more until that's complete; which brings us to the next problem.

Many of the voice actors of the original series are either dead or are retired from voice acting (the later includes the voice actor of Razor, Barry Gordon, who currently runs a talk show and is a teacher at a university). So even if the show was revived, how many of the original voice actors would return after so many years?

Maybe someday we'll see a new SWAT Kats series, but it will be so different from the original that I think fans would be disappointed.

It's probably for the best that it's not revived, better to relive the memories than to expect something that will probably let us down.

This blog will remain, but it's unlikely that there will ever be new posts.

See you all somewhere else.

I'm Still Here

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the project, and the Tremblays don't seem to have forgotten either.

Good things come to those who are patient. :)

Music Genres

I've decided to make a post about music genres that fit various characters.

Chance and Jake: blues (example).

Razor and T-Bone: progressive metal (this was a description of the genre I heard used in the credits).

The Metallikats: neurofunk (a subgenre of drum and bass, example).

The Pastmaster: symphonic black metal (example).

Dark Kat: dark ambient (example).

Any you can think of?
