  • show Description
  • Please note that for now, all information found here will pertain to the North American voiced over version of Samurai Pizza Cats. (SPC) Not the Japanese version or any other dubbed in another foreign language version. So who are the Samurai Pizza Cats? The Samurai Pizza Cats are a trio of crime-fighting super-heroes in the town of Little Tokyo, Japan. Wearing Samurai costumes, they burst through the air to the rescue from a humongous cannon connected to their headquarters - A fast food restaurant. Little Tokyo is populated by all kinds of animals. The official governor of the town is the Emperor, but since he hecame insane, a council takes care of the well-being of the village. One of the members of this council is called Seymour "Big" Cheese, who secretly wishes to take over control of the village. There's Speedy Cerviche, he's the leader of the bunch (Nyanki) as well as the waiter/delivery guy as a normal cat. Standing at 4'4, weighing 66 pouunds, he is a heck of a fighter makes a heck of a lunch. His weapons contain shurikans, a sword, and another sword that (which he uses to perform the Cat's Eye Slash). There's little Polly Esther who's never afraid of going into battle when the bad guys invade. Here's Guido Anchovy a wild romantic rover. This cat gets down down with a love hangover. The other recurring characters are Seymour "Big" Cheese who is always plotting plans to control all of Little Tokyo. He has the tendency to explode when he does not get what he wants, which is quite often. He is often advised by Jerry Attric, who is the brain in most of Cheese's plans. Bad Bird is another bad guy in Little Tokyo who dispises the Pizza cats and attempts to eliminate them using his Ninja Crows. Francine is the one who works at the counter at the Pizza Parlour. Rescue Team, or "B-Team", consists of Bat Cat, General Catton, Meowsma O'Tool, and Spiritz T. Cat The "T" stands for "The". Lucille is the love interest for Guido and Speedy while Guru Lou is the spiritual advisor to the Pizza Cats. Emperor Fred is a lunatic and that is why Little Tokyo is governed by a council of wise men. He always finds new hobbies and always portrays a fresh look on things. Advised by Big Al Dente, who reports or calls on the Pizza Cats when the city is in trouble. Princess Violet is a spoiled emperor's daughter and everything she wants has to be hers. Will somebody please cue that bird Samurai Pizza Cats ("Oh Yeah") Who do you call when you want some pepperoni Samurai Pizza Cats ("Right On") They're stamping out crime, and you know that ain't balogna There's Speedy Cerviche, he's the leader of the bunch ("That's Right!") A heck of a fighter, makes a heck of a lunch And little Polly Esther, who's never afraid ("That's Me") Of going into battle when the bad guys invade Here's Guido Anchovy, a wild, romantic rover This cat gets down, down with a love hangover Here come the Pizza Cats They're so bad ("Tada") They've got more fur than any turtle ever had They're stronger than old cheese ("Stronger than Old Cheese") They're stronger than dirt ("Stronger than dirt") If you step on their tails ("Not on my tail") Then you're gonna get hurt ("Don't Hurt Me") Samurai Pizza Cats They're fighting crime... All over town - 4... 3... 2... 1... Pizza Cats are on the run The Big Cheese is the villain who lower than low It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo We've got our nasty Bad Bird and some nasty Ninja Crows As soon as someone finds the script, we might begin the show Sit right back, put up your feet, and turn the sound up high And if you want the full effect, go eat a pizza pie Samurai Pizza Cats!moreless

    Notes (31)

    • Robot Enemy: The Dragon Legs

    • This may be the only kid's show to contain the word "orgy" (the narrator refers to the dragon's work as an orgy of destruction after the Pizza Cats are launched by Francine).

    • This is the only time a classical kid's show has ever allowed the word "orgy" to be uttered on TV.

    • Robot Enemy: The Sushi-Making Monster

    • Robot Enemy: The 3 Dig Robots and Pickax

    • Enemy Robot: Dung Beetle Robot

    • The Robot Enemy: The Two Umbrella-wielding Bros.

    • The Robot Enemy: Bat Cat

    Trivia (6)

    • In this episode, during Speedy's "Cat's Eye Slash" sequence the sheath of his sword is colored gold. In all future episodes, the sheath is colored red.

    • Polly Esther (serving a customer): Identify the surprise within three bites, and you win a free stomach pump! It was nice knowing you.

    • First time we see Polly without her helmet.

    • When Guru Lou is walking home from the restaurant, the narrator says he's just groggy from all the MSG in the meal he'd eaten. But it's probably obvious that he was drunk in the original Japanese version of this episode.

    • First time all three finishers from all three Pizza cats we're used at the same time.

    • How could Speedy and Guido get injured by Bad Bird so easily?

    By BTRAV, Nov 29, 2006

  • Not a bad show at all, but there are parts where it gets to be a little annoying with the whole \"poking fun at itself\" theme going on.
