WildC.A.T.s is a half-hour animated television series based on the comics series of the same name. WildC.A.T.s is about the universal war between two prehistoric alien races. One of the races is the heroic Kherubim while the other is the evil Daemonites.
The WildC.A.T.s television series was created in 1994 and aired on CBS. The series was produced by WildStorm Productions in association with Nelvana. Although DC Comics owns the rights to the characters (due to DC's 1999 purchase of WildStorm), FUNimation Entertainment distributed the series' run on DVD, which was released on July 19, 2005.
WildC.A.T.s, along with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Skeleton Warriors, was grouped into the "Action Zone" showcase that used a wraparound animated fly-though pre-credit sequence to bookend the three very different programs. The series was canceled around the same time that the "Action Zone" concept was officially retired (although TMNT retained the "Action Zone" credit sequence until the end of its run two years later).
It had only thirteen episodes with a family-friendly storyline. Despite being a cartoon geared towards children, WildC.A.T.s featured considerably impressive battles scenes, along with a rock soundtrack, in an effort to appeal to older kids as well. The show was also notable for its theme song (performed by Sheree Jeacocke and Gerry Mosby).
The group was composed of all the original WildC.A.T.s. The major villain was Helspont, but the Troika and the Coda were featured. Mr. Majestic also made appearances, though not as a member of the group.
The main differences of the series and the comic books were:
- Jacob Marlowe, the Kherubim Lord Emp, was an ordinary human here.
- Warblade just discovered his powers when he becomes part of the group, in the first episode. Because of this, he was the group's rookie, a position occupied by Voodoo in the comic book.
- Void was an android and a Kherubim artificial intelligence.
- Majestic was an antagonist, obsessed with finding the Orb and destroying the Daemonites.
- Max Cash, Grifter's comic universe younger brother, was the older brother, and the leader of an International Operations special unit called the Black Razors.
- Pike, who in the comics was a human/Kherubim hybrid working for the Daemonites, is a Daemonite himself in the TV series.
- Voodoo is a telekinetic in addition to being a telepath.
- Maul does not have a human form; his super-powered form is permanent. In addition, he becomes more enraged as he grows in size, as opposed to losing intelligence.
- Zealot and Grifter became a couple by the series' end.
- Spartan was a Kherubim rebuilt as a cyborg instead of being an android.
