I believe we've only seen a few other kats without shoes. Dark Kat and Dr. Viper habitually go shoeless. Morbulus is seen barefoot after ditching his clothes, but he has boots before that. And of course Mac and Molly often go without footwear (or otherwise naked) but sometimes wear clothes, complete with shoes.

1. I guess the only way to settle this is to ask the Tremblays.

2. Given the sheer number of cartoon animals who go barefoot but are otherwise fully clothed (see here for more info), you can just as easily reverse the question: why do any of the characters in SWAT Kats wear shoes?

I hesitate to mention this hypothetical process as Casandro is likely to point out how unprofessional it is :lol:

Because of all the SWAT Kats related video editing projects, I would assume that one would have every episode ripped and queued RazDark

Because the DVDs are region free, one can skip the step of using a program such as DVD Decrypter or RipIt and go straight to using something like Hand Brake to identify chapters directly from the DVD disc or the VOB files if one copied them to their hard drive. I've heard the chapters aren't clearly labeled... so after some trial and error, one could find the pattern for each episode and use Hand Break to rip those to individual files (perhaps as MKVs using H.264).

After that, one could also run something like Perian to help ensure that video codecs are used cross-application so as to remove the need to convert files prior to editing them.

One could then use Adobe Creative Cloud, specifically Premiere Pro CC, and create sequences from selected in and out points in the ripped episodes, then export those sequences as mp4 files. Then, using Adobe Photoshop CC, one can import those video files to frames, and then export for web as animated GIFs. To do all of the tomfoolery, one can use a mix of Premiere and Photoshop to do different things, from inserting graphics, animations, using mattes or masks, adding effects, etc. For bonus professional points, one could use Adobe Illustrator CC to make vector graphics:

But, all of that seems a little involved to me, and if one wants to make simple GIFs without the need to do any serious editing, a program such as GIF Brewery should be more than adequate.

This is all hypothetical of course, and should in no way be considered an admission of impropriety to the likes of WB RazHoping
