Once again I have to go against the grain and avoid pretty much anything from season two. Anyway, when you say iconic, I take it to mean you mean iconic to me personally, the images that cross my mind whenever I think of SWAT Kats
, the scenes that have stuck with me for years, having burned themselves inexorably into my brain, even if they came from episodes that I missed on their initial run back in the 90s.
The reveal of Morbulus' extra eyes and the bit with the SWAT Kats and him looking at one another was the visual that first drew me into the show to begin with.
Harryhausen fan that I've been since I was a little kid, the obvious nods to the cyclopes in The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
the show gave us delighted me to no end.
Hard Drive may not have been a terribly interesting or even original villain, but his electricity-based powers resulted in some pretty awesome visuals. I've always been fond of this bit where he's almost in ecstasy from all the digital information coursing through his body.
The gigantic Shard on the surface of the "frozen" diamond reservoir is another mental image that I was unable to shake years and years after seeing this episode. Chaos in Crystal
is without doubt one of the first season's most visual distinctive episodes in terms of the imagery it bestows upon us.
Just the image of the mind-controlled people with insectoid eyeballs was quite chilling and never left my mind.
Even though he isn't really ever seen too clearly (at least not in any shots that actually flatter the concept), Octopus!Madkat was very memorable to me, being one of the series' most iconic creatures.
The villains all band together. This episode rocked my socks as a kid.
I'll choose some season two bits that remain iconic to me later.
