One of things I love about BOTP/Gatchaman is the creative mecha monsters the Spectrans/Galactor used in their attacks.

I have wondered.... Why no Kitty-CAT mecha? Thinking about it, Cats love to eat to birds.

I had wondered if Zoltar especially would have wanted to send a Cat mecha to take out the team.

Wonder how that Episode would have looked like? LOL

(If there was one, and I've forgotten about it, let me know the EP.)

You made me think of the episode of The Goodies with the giant kitten.

The Goodies classic!!!

I loved the Goodies as a kid, watching it now I'm shocked my parents let us watch it. That kind of humour goes straight over a kids head.

Gatch/BOTP version of Kitty Kong! Goodies crossover. Bwahhhh! Laughing thinking about it.

Please, no Hello Kitty. Just thinking about Hello Kitty makes me cringe. Someone at work who had a Smart car painted like Hello Kitty.

What always amazed me about the mecha was they had no problem with blaspheme but at least they used every religion they could.

Hi all!

I guess it all depends on whether you're looking for mecha based on any member of the cat family, or specifically for mecha based off of the typical housecat.

If it's any form of cat-based mecha, then there were a few. There were the hyena mecha that attack Joe and Lucy's car in Gatchaman #27, as well as the wildcat mecha that attacks Jiro and Taro in Gatchaman #36. Not they're really "mecha," but there's the Commando Squad that wore leopard-style headgear in Gatchaman #73. For a more traditional Iron Beast mecha, there's the panther-like Iron Beast Bantegron from Gatchaman Fighter #37.

You average housecat got off fairly lightly, unless you want to look at the standard Gallactor uniform and its feline design. About the only use of an actual housecat that I can recall being used didn't actually make it to screen, and thank goodness for that! You see, in the early scenario draft of Gatchaman #31, one of the attempts Gallactor made to kill Dr. Nambu involved planting an explosive inside his pet cat. The attempt fails, of course, but it does not end well for either the cat or Nambu's villa. I am not at all upset that this sequence was eliminated from the version of the story we eventually saw.

I hope this helps!

James

Are suggesting the creators were secret cat fans??
I could see them all in the planning room with a purring kitty in their laps planning the goons costume designs. L ol

How Bond villain-esque.

Perhaps they just thought that, if they did too much with cats, people might realize that the entire series is nothing more than a riff off of Tweety and Sylvester cartoons...
