Kyattou Ninden Teyande takes place in the city of Little Tokyo, a meld of feudal and modern Japanese culture, whose citizens are walking, talking animals.

When the head palace guard catches wind that the corrupt prime minister Seymour Cheese decides to become emperor and take over Little Tokyo, he knows that only one group can save Little Tokyo: the owners of a local pizza joint, the Pizza Cats! Serving delicious pizza by day, this trio's true occupation is meowvelous warriors of justice! The Samurai Pizza Cats will do whatever it takes to protect Little Tokyo!


Kyattou Ninden Teyande was dubbed by Saban Entertainment under the name "Samurai Pizza Cats", which featured an entirely new, pop-culture-heavy English script. Their licensing agreement lasted 11 years before expiring in 2002.

While all episodes (excluding the two clip shows) were dubbed, several went unaired in the United States.

To start out with, if you didn't already know Samurai Pizza Cats and Kyattou Ninden Teyandee are two COMPLETELY different shows. When the producers decided to send KNT to America, they either didn't send the original scripts or they were translated badly before being sent.
The result?
Samurai Pizza Cats.
The dub isn't a translation at all; in fact, the English scripts were made up based on what the characters seem to be doing as interpreted by the English crew. An "interpretation" is probably the only title you could give this show that links it to it's Japanese side. No names were kept, and some characters read more

It's been a while since I looked at a series for kids. Usually the anime I get requests for are for a more teenage audience, if not older. Enter Kyattou Ninden Teyandee, an anime from the early 90s. It was brought to us by Tatsunoko Production. You may remember them from my review of C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control. You may also know them from that game they partnered with Capcom to make. It was written by Sekijima Mayori & Akahori Satoru, the man behind Bakuretsu Hunters. If the pink cat girl strips into bondage gear to fight I'm going to be read more

This was my first official anime that i have seen in my life, along side Astro, alot of fond memories and happy times in my childhood revolve around watching this anime every saturday morning at 10am lol. My anime addiction starts with this and will never end. Thank you Samurai Pizza Cats :)

The only reason it gets a 10 for art in my book is it was probably the best in its time and was somewhat unique, they are the foundation for all cats in anime lol, my opinion only :)

This is a classic to me, i think it was the first anime i ever saw, and has also been the one that got me into watching more anime later on.
i think ive been no more than 7 or 8 years old back when it aired on german tv-station RTL+. Every saturday and sunday morning i and my younger siblings would get up very early to watch this anime when it was on.
I later on bought a DVD with this series but was disappointed in it not being possible to get more than one with them.
its an anime i will always hold dear, and if read more
