If the position of the numbers is right, then the date of the chapter in this image can be 9-July-1996, 9-July-2002, 9-July-2013... It can be too 9-July-1991 (maybe the date when the creators come with the idea or the project started?).

You know it all could be because they're too busy/lazy to change the calendar. Their plate IS kind of full :P

They kept it on that month cuz they dig the pretty she-kat on the calendar cover, that's my alternate head canon xD

"..We could just say it's always July, yeah."

One thing is that the SWAT Kats also forever have twelve to thirteen victories marked on the wall, no matter what, heh. :lol:

LowdogCraft wrote:Okay... so I've started to write a SK/Homestuck crossover called SWATStuck, and just like in Homestuck, I want the first page detailing the main character's birthday, with the first main character being Razor. I want to be able to insert the year, but the show doesn't exactly say when SWAT Kats takes place. But, I've got a theory on the year the show takes place in.

Megakat City looks quite like a near-future city, similar to Empire City in the 1985 cartoon COPS. I'm gonna reference this show quite a bit, so... yeah. Anyways, COPS takes place in 2020, so there's one thing. Both cities look somewhat similar, and both cities have laser access, so it seems that SWAT Kats takes place somewhere in the early to mid 2020s so far. Of course, there are some setbacks to this, such as the fact that many movies, tv shows and video games with aliens or space pirates are set far into the future, and we of course know of Mutilor and Tragg, who are both space pirates. We don't exactly know of any other species in space currently in 2015, but it seems pretty plausible that the time period could be pushed back a bit. Maybe to late 2020s to early 2030s.

So, there's no definitive answer that I have yet, but for SWATStuck, I'm sticking with the year 2033. Leave comments on what time period you think the show takes place in! :)
I have razor's birthday in my comic as september 20th and it takes place in 2016
razor is 24 years old while chance is 26.

I'm blanking on the episode I saw it in (when I find it, I'll nab a pic of it), but at one point the Always July calendar had a close up. I googled "July 1993" and it matched perfectly.
