This is a thought that I've had in my mind since I saw Barry Gordon's video message on Kickstarter which now got even more fueled by the Kickstarter Update No. 32.
Assuming that some years have passed between The Radical Squadron and Revolution then Chance and Jake have aged, naturally (like their voice actors did).
So, what if they've found two guys having a similar physical appearance, trained them to take over their alter egos T-Bone and Razor and now act as mentors from the background.
I don't think the voice actors of The Radical Squadron who are still with us can really hide their age (although it's technically possible to make a voice sound younger).
So this scenario might make sense if Charlie Adler and Barry Gordon are going to participate in the new series.
But what exactly fueled my thought?
Well, let's take a look at the second paragraph shown in the image of the update:
Where are THE SWAT KATS? They used to be state of the art, but now the TURBOKAT is falling apart [...]
T-BONE is a great pilot and RAZOR a fantastic(?) [...]
watch helplessly as time and [...]
back to the hangar [...]
As the Turbokat is falling apart this sounds like that quite some time has passed and the SWAT Kats have either retired or have been kept from flying for some reason.
Now let's take a look at the first paragraph:
Chance wants to know how he got into the hangar [...]
"Bypassed it. Strictly old school," he explains, [...]
who we learn is a no rules troublemaker, who trained(?) [...]
about computers at MEGAKAT REFORM SCHOOL and he
doesn't like the Enforcers, or what's happened to
This sounds like a description for a new character to me who broke into the SWAT Kats hangar and confronts Chance or is confronted by him. The guy seems to have advanced technological knowledge (bypassing locks, knows well about computers). Furthermore he is a no rules troublemaker who has been at the Megakat Reform School and has no respect of the Enforcers.
Sounds like a potential candidate for a new SWAT Kat to me.
Assuming that I'm right with this speculation, do you think the fans of The Radical Squadron would accept that Chance and Jake don't act as T-Bone and Razor anymore?
How would you feel about it?
