Sword Pizza Nyans was one of my favourites as a wee lad. That stupid theme song still permeates the far corners of my brain. :Y

Super cute. You get all the pepperoni.

That theme song is one of the best things ever. I forgot about the show until sometime in highschool and found I could still recite the theme hahaha. Fred Schneider-sounding stuff right there, man.

And ty, but they will go to my nyans (I let them eat my food with me a lot)

I love the anime and the game.
I remember I had problem beating Bad Bird in the old NES of Samurai Pizza cats. XD

I had no idea there was a game! Remember playing Little Nemo on NES and being like "WHOA!!" but I"m sure Samurai Pizza Cats cartridge would've blown little me's mind hahaha

Yup it is, I only know one which is the only one I've had on NES.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8012g…
I actually know the series from this game and then learned there was anime for it.

Wonder if I were to play the game again, would I be able to beat it this time?  It was pretty tough for me when I was younger.

It was, but it's one of those classics to Americans since we got it on TV here way before the anime boom of the mid 90's haha. Have you ever watched the Eng dub?

Heck yeah! It was a super fun show back in the day with warm memories! I did try to rewatch it recently, but I dunno if my nostalgia sensors could outweigh the cringy-ness the show made me feel XD

Loved Samurai Pizza Cats, one of the few anime where I preferred the English dub to the Japanese.

The Japanese vers, while still a comedy, just didn't have the pun-y self-referential jokes that the dub provided. It was a good time

so good! i never got the chance to watch SPC but i think its right up my alley so im gonna have to give it a watch when i can :^>

fun story, i was at an anime festival and i got excited when i saw a Samurai Pizza Cats poster that someone drew and the artist laughed and said that i was the only person to know what that was D^:

Omg, you should totally do it whenever you can! Discotek Media has recently released both the English dub by Saban that most Americans know and love, and the original takes-itself-a-little-more-seriously Japanese version as well!

That's so awesome that you recognize them without having watched them before hahaha. I also think I can relate to that artist that when people recognize stuff I draw irl, it's nothing short of a miracle (online doesn't count since there's oldies everywhere ;) )
