Pizza Cats Video at Jonas Miles' Page
I've got six KNT episodes total at the moment. Four can be found at http://www.geocities.com/jonas_miles/theater.html .
(But fix those broken images! -Vi)
Another episode, apparently a clip show that was never dubbed (in America, at any rate), can be found at
This episode isn't overtly entertaining, being a bunch of clips anyway, but it *does* have the mega-cool "Pururun VS. Geisha Robot Fight Song" at the end. ^^
Pizza Cat Toys/Merchandice News
by Violet & Tigress
We've been able to confirm the existence of a couple KNT items previously unknown to most fans outside of Japan. I had previously told people that the only Pizza Cats action figures (not including the small 1 inch rubber figures) were of Speedy, Polly, Guido and the 4 "Rescue Team" cats, but I have now found that Big Cheese and Bad Bird figures were also made as part of a different set by Bandai.
A KNT board game was confirmed to exist, in fact a couple were recently sold at the online "SPC Shop". The board game is actually 2 different games in one, since you can turn the board over for a different game. We're not exactly sure how the game is played, since the rules are in Japanese and we haven't had a chance to study them yet. This may be worth writing more about later.
Aside from the 2 previously known CDs mentioned on some SPC web pages and this newsletter, there was also a CD single with the KNT theme.

Saban doesn't take this as a hint.
Pizza Cats Facts
The "Potted Pig" in "Close Encounters of the Pig Kind" was actually designed by a fan of the show in Japan when the series first played there. His/her design was the winning entry of a contest to design a character to appear in the show.
There's a Tobacco shop (with a misspelled sign) to the right of the Pizza Parlor. Does anyone know what's on the left side of the parlor?
Pizza Cats Fan Art Wanted
Shep0815@aol.com is still looking for SPC fan art to use in a fan-made book. Everyone who's art is used will get a free copy of the book. Artwork should be in black and white, and you'll have to snail mail a copy of your art or comic strip story. E-mail him for more information if you are interested.
If you have some Pizza Cats art you've made or scanned as computer graphics, and want to share with SPC fans, in color or black and white, the Pizza Cats Fan Art Page (http://www.pacificnet.net/~iburry/fanart.html) is always looking for new pictures
This Month's Picture
It's the Big Cheese Action Figure!
Boy, I sure have been a busy bunny! It's a good thing I had help with this issue from Tigress, and Jonas (who didn't know he was writing an article for the newsletter).
Of course, anyone is welcome to write an article for the newsletter, why should I do everything? See you next month!
