  • the first episode of the series.

    a couple of grave diggers find a buried chest belonging to the dark ages.by opening it,they accidentally awaken the pastmaster,a sorcerer capable of controlling time who was imprisoned in the chest for 800 years.he goes to the megakat museum to find his book of spells.he makes one of the exhibits come to life and attack deputy mayor Callie Briggs and the museum curator.they call the swat kats for help.they arrive and take care of the living exhibit.then the pastmaster,who has recovered is spell book,summons a dinosaur through a time portal and hurls the swat kats into the past. commander feral and the enforcers try their best to stop him but he defeats them and casts a spell that will recreate the pastmaster's dark age city and make megakat city extinct.as expected,the swat kats come back and make short work of the pastmaster. this episode was a good starter to the series and showed the turbokat in action but it failed to mention the origin of the swat kats.he pastmaster is a good villain and is shown to be pretty powerful in this episode.however,in other episodes,he isn't half as impressive.
