In case you haven't heard, Samurai Pizza Cats is undergoing something of a revival this year. After being ignored for about 2 decades, this year it's finally gotten a DVD release in Japan, and a dual DVD release (the Saban dub and the original Japanese with subtitles) is slated for release in the US next year. Also two different companies are making toys, one having already released a Speedy figure with plans for Guido, Polly and Bad Bird, and another having announced a diecast Speedy with add-on armor/flight pack and a Supreme Catatonic.

So let's discuss this wonderful SD anthro mecha jidaigeki sentai anime.

To my knowledge, it's pretty much a repeat of the Star Musketeer Bismarck phenomenon, in that the original Japanese version is kinda meh but the radically-altered dub, similarly to Saber Rider, is widely considered pretty damn good.

That's all I know about it.

The original's actually good in it's own right, but few people outside of Japan have bothered watching it (understandable due to the lack of subs), and lots of misinformation regarding it gets spread around by people who either don't know any better or are trying to justify their own preferences.

I don't recall the dub ever spelling out that they are robots.

I think the closest it ever got was one line that referred to them as "cybernetic". But yeah, in general the dub just treated them as animals even though the character designs had a mechanical theme. The original Japanese show was part of an SD robot fad that was going on at the time.

I felt so old explaining this show to my friends. They'd never heard of it.

Why did they guys not get in Tatsunko vs. Capcom?

Damn it, I might have to bite just to find out what the "nuclear baked potato" actually was in that one episode.

Supposedly Capcom tried to get them in, but they weren't able to reach an agreement. Don't know what exactly the problem was, but if I had to guess it might have been copyright issues.
