The 26 episodes of “ThunderCats,” which aired on Cartoon Network in 2011-12, became available July 26; 24 episodes of “SWAT Kats,” which aired on TBS in the ’90s, is launching Aug. 8.

Out of pure curiosity: are there any differences concerning the image quality between the VRV streams and the DVD version? Also, are there any bonus materials included?

From what I can tell, they appear to be rips of the DVDs. On my computer they look fine, but on larger HD TVs on the VRV app the interlacing shows a little bit. No special features other than The Special Report episode.

I was noticing this issue in Season Two, where the first few seconds of the episode seem to be cut: https://twitter.com/_MoDaD_/status/1028156097960370176

VRV has removed SWAT Kats from its lineup without explanation (so far).

I'm assuming that since it's been one year since their initial streaming of the show that their license has expired and they've quietly opted not to renew.

If there's any reaction from their Twitter account you will be able to find it first here: https://twitter.com/TheSWATKats/status/ ... 79968?s=20
