Samurai Pizza Cats - Amazon says this has been out for at least a year!

Posted by David Lambert
And here's another strange one. Joshua Lane over at Animated Bliss has dug up an listing for a Samurai Pizza Cats - Volume 1 DVD!

The show was run in syndication in the USA for one season back in the 90's, and feature three feline crime-fighters dressed in Samurai armor. Their headquarters was a pizza parlor, naturally, and it sported a rather large gun which our heroes used to shoot themselves out of, and quickly get to the scene of the action!

According to the Amazon listing, this DVD has been available since 2003 (which is funny, because we've never noticed it before!) and is currently out-of-stock, but can be gotten on a special order basis. The word "import" is mentioned, but it's said to be a Region 1 release in NTSC format, with full-frame video and Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound. Running time is 100 minutes. Jade Entertainment is said to be the originator of this product, but a Google search turns up many companies by that name - the biggest one seeming to be a supplier of adult content DVDs, rather than anything for kids.

Animated Bliss is continuing to look into this, so we'll leave it in their very capable hands and update you on what they find out. In the meantime, here's the cover art that Amazon shows:

UPDATE: Further research into this DVD has revealed that there is nothing official about the release, and it is an unauthorized item which will not continue to be offered at Amazon long-term. Hopefully at some point we will see a legally licensed DVD set for North America, but that day isn't here yet. Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated if we hear anything!
