If you were a child of the 90’s there is a chance that you watched many classic shows, but one of them stands above the rest. Samurai Pizza Cats, its a show about three cats that deliver pizza and also battle a murder of evil ninja crows. And now thanks to Madman Entertainment, you can now purchase this show on DVD for the first time.
The show takes itself about as serious as a clown, with the show being full of really bad puns and lots of rhymes. However that is the charm of the show. The three cats are named Speedy Cerviche, Polly Esther and Guido Anchovy and when not fighting giant Sushi robots and crow powered dragons, they work in a pizza shop, where Francine runs the shop and sends the cats out on their mission. And she does this by shooting them out of a giant gun located on top of the shop.
Madman have done a great job with the presentation of the collection, with a reversible cover to hide the over-sized rating logo, but sadly that’s about all that comes with it
This show was part of my childhood, and growing up I remember watching it each and every day. The theme song is still something that is in my head, and it’s as catchy as ever. If you watched this when it first came out, nostalgia might be enough for the investment, but for new viewers, the 90’s pop culture references, old animation and bad audio quality might not be enough to convince you to get them.
