Traitors like you don’t fit into our new plans. Molly and I are our own gang now, and we’re dealin' all of you out! - The Metallikats
Mac and Molly Mange are brought back from the dead as robotic gangsters. The bloodthirsty bionic duo seek their revenge against their enemies, including Mayor Manx, who they think denied their parole.
For the first time since their posthumous “complete makeover,” The Metallikats are back in Megakat City and planning to “tear up this town like a scratching post!”
However, Mac and Molly’s first priority is “rubbing out that crud Mayor Manx,” because they think [he] denied their parole. It’s mayhem in the mayor’s office as the SWAT Kats fight to save both Manx and Callie from the mean machines.
This is a SWAT Kats classic, thanks largely to the villains, who play their unique shtick (Bonnie & Clyde meet Al and Peg Bundy, as robots) to the hilt. Valiant Callie also gets a powerful moment when she tells the Manges that she, not the Mayor, denied their parole (“Manx hasn’t done an ounce of paperwork around here for years!”), and almost pays for it with her life. A+
Musings: The theme of villains returning from the dead and seeking revenge was used often on SWAT Kats . Other variations on the theme include “The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice,” “The Ghost Pilot,” “Enter the Madkat” and “The Origin of Dr. Viper.”

The stranger started laughing dismissively. With fear in his eyes, Matthew slowly came out from under his desk.
“Who... who are you? What do you want?” Matthew asked very frightened.
“So, you don't even remember me. Just as I thought. No matter. It might be even funnier that way. Does the name Hard Drive mean anything to you?”
Matthew gulped. “You mean... that you are...?”
“Yes,” Hard Drive answered proudly. “I am Hard Drive and for your information: I've just stole Sally from you and swiped your servers clean. Now it's all in here.” He pointed with his finger at his coat. “And there is nothing you can do about it.”
“B.. b.. but why? This is code for a... for a game. How could this be of any interest to someone like you?”
“It has, no doubt. You see, this game code of yours is capable of much more than you can obviously imagine. But you will see soon enough. You know I could have stolen the code from outside, but I wanted you to see how it gets stolen and by whom. So now it's time to say 'Goodbye' to Sally."
