Episode Summary

EDIT
Destructive Nature
AIRED:
The new, 300-story office building Megakat Towers is open for business, and Mayor Manx is trying to persuade foreign investor Mr. Young to house his corporate headquarters there. But Dr. Viper is back and he ruins Manx's plans as he seizes control of the tower with his army of acid-spitting "plantimals." He places a huge spore pod on the roof: when it explodes, it will shower Megakat City with spores, turning the metropolis into one big swamp ("Megaswamp City"). Obviously the Swat Kats won't allow this. While T-Bone runs interference in the Turbokat, Razor sneaks inside the building to stop Viper with the help of Callie Briggs, who happened to be inside when the building was taken.moreless

    If I had to put this episode in one word I'd have to say aweasome! Not only was the action great and my favorite villian made a comeback but Razor had a big part here and since he's my favorite character I can't help but love this episode. I don't like picking favorites and I love T-Bone to but Razor just had a bigger part which I notice in other episodes but I guess part of the reason is because T-Bone's the pilot and needs to stay in the Turbokat because of it. Well other than that the episode was great and should be a favorite to all fans.moreless
  • The Swat Kats must stop Dr.Viper from turning Megakat City into a swamp with him as the definite ruler.

    Dr.Viper appeared earlier in "The Giant Bacteria", and not very successfully. We all know that the bacteria monster was the real threat, so Viper was set in the shadow troughout the entire episode. He was unnecesseary for the story and i didn't feel that he was a potential destructive villain. This episode proves me wrong, and Viper really shows what a threatening menace he actually is. Viper also shows that there is still a little bit of humanity in him as he sheds some tears when he explains his vision over the city. The animation is solid, with some strange elements that looks silly every now and then. A really good episode featuring Viper as the main villain. If you watch this episode i suggest you avoid "The Origin of Dr.Viper" that really just makes him pathetic.moreless
  • My favourite Swat Kats episode

    Do you know why do I love this episode? Because of action? Lines? Maybe... but I do know I love it mostly because of Razor... The guy's got entire episode for himself... And he finally gets some time with Callie...In this episode ,Raze is doing all those stuffs because of which I like him so much... First we saw Jake the sissie watering plants... then we saw Razor as Rambo as he blast all those plants and monsters ,he saved the girl ,fought the badguy ,and then he rode a bomb... can't help it... gotta love that guy... Mostly beacuse of that transformation from Jake to Razor... I can't imagine Jake doing dozens of stuffs which are completely natural for Razor... T-Bone and Chance ,on the other hand ,are not like that ,there is not any major difference between them like those between Raze and Jake.

    Razor is definitely my favourite cartoon character ,and in this episode ,he prove himself ,and didn't dissapointed me.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Razor ejected along with his ejector seat. But when he got back in the Turbokat, the seat was there.

    • If the super-rocket coolant is strong enough to freeze the plantimals even while they're flying away from the building, it should've frozen the Turbokat also.

    • After Mayor Manx hangs up on him, Commander Feral angrily throws down his walkie-talkie and breaks it. However, in the very next shot the Sergeant is holding it and it is undamaged.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • (After a plant covers the screen of Chance's game, who losses)
      Chance: Hey! But bad for my game, and I was going for a personal best.
      Jake: Relax, there is always another universe that needs saving.

    • Commander Feral: (To an Enforcer Commando) Report.
      Enforcer Commando: According to eyewitnesses, sir, this stuff just sprang up in minutes. But it'll take us a week to cut through.
      Commander Feral: Not if we burn our way in.
      Enforcer Commando: That's a ten story brush of dried grass, sir. If our fire gets out of hand, it might torch the whole city.
      Commander Feral: Objection noted.

    • Commander Feral: Viper? Should've known that crazy lizard would be behind this mess.

    • (Mayor Manx is trying to make a deal with Mr. Young)
      Mayor Manx: How'm I doing?
      Callie Briggs: Greed brings out the best in you, Mr. Mayor.
      Mayor Manx: Thank you.

    • Dr. Viper: It's just you and me now, sweetness. Feral is helpless, and the SWAT Kats have run away in their stupid jet. Aww, you're so beautiful! It's going to be a shame to have you explode!

    • Dr. Viper: The SWAT Kats have failed! In a few minutes, it will be all over!
      Razor: You can say that again, snake-puss.
      Dr. Viper: What? It's not possible!
      Razor: Anything's possible, ugly.

    • Commander Feral: Now, you listen to me, Mayor. Dr. Viper has turned your pet skyscraper into a living weed patch, and--
      Mayor Manx: No, you listen to me, Feral! The city has a billion dollars sunk in that tower. Use weed killer if you have to, but get that wacko Viper out of there, now!

    • Dr. Viper: I can see it all now. A spectacular new Megakat City. No more ugly metal and plastic, only beautiful swamp, ruled by me! Dr. Viper's Megaswamp City! It will be so beautiful!

    • Razor: Wah-hoo! Get ready, Viper! The SWAT Kats are gonna put the big chill or your big plans!

    • Callie Briggs: Thanks! It was fun. We have to do it again sometime.
      Razor: Yeah, right. Take care!
      T-Bone: See you later, Miss Briggs. We have to get back. Razor has to water his plants.
      Razor: Oh, no. I think I've had enough gardening for one day.

    • (After the Megakat Tower is destroyed)
      Mr. Young: Thank you for the golf game, but I think we will pass on your most generous offer.
      Mayor Manx: Now, now, now don't be hasty! We'll fix it up just like new! A fresh coat of paint! I'll upgrade the carpetting! We have some lovely parting gifts, just don't part! Free golf clubs! Come back!

    • Chance: Ha-ha! Got 'em! Two million points and I've saved the universe!
      Jake: Well I'm tryin' to save this place from the smell of sour milk.
      Chance: So that's what all this plant business is about.
      Jake: Yup! Good for the environment, good for the air.
