* ExecutiveMeddling[=/=]ProtectionFromEditors: Started in the former, ended in the latter. Satoru Akahori mentions in a 1991 interview that in the show's early stages there was a lot of intervention from Bandai, including forcing them to add things in at the last minute. But by the latter half of the show, everyone, including the network, had essentially given the staff free reign of the series. The increasing level of freedom led to the show getting crazier as it progressed, and the ratings climbed accordingly.

The increasing level of freedom led to the show getting crazier as it progressed, and the ratings climbed accordingly. Formuliac elements at the beginning of the series were lessened as well, such as reliably-episodic appearances of the Rescue Team and the Supreme Catatonic, in favor of more flexible plot turnouts.



* OnlyOneFemaleMold: Most of the female cast has a similar build and facial structure (which is [[LittleBitBeastly notably more human]]) compared to the male cast. Some bit parts (such as Violet's kangaroo maidservant) and extras manage to avoid this, however.

Polly is also the only Pizza Cat capable of removing her helmet, revealing smaller ears and a full head of hair underneath. (Speedy, Guido and the Rescue Team had designs lacking armor, but not helmets.)


Added DiffLines:

**In many instances, his cross-dressing is played off as moving around in disguise in the dub, as opposed to leisure activity as it was originally.


Added DiffLines:

**In the original show, the Big Cheese encounters his past-self while in drag, which inspires his younger-self to grow interested in doing so as well.

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: The Japanese opening credits sequence features a scene in which Yattarou (Speedy) engages Karamaru (Bad Bird) in midair combat, the red backpack on his armor functioning as a jet pack. However, this ability is never used in the show itself, and in actuality the fact that the cats cannot fly under their own power becomes a plot point in one episode, necessitating the introduction of their [[MechaExpansionPack Mecha Expansion Packs]].

* CoolSword[=/=]LegendaryWeapon: The [[NamedWeapon Youtou Masamasa/Magical Ginsu Sword]]. Normally sealed within its sheath, its great power only becomes unleashed when Speedy's righteous fury reaches its peak (although there are instances of it being unsealed by more [[WhatTheHellHero dubious motives]].) With it, Speedy is able to perform the [[SwordBeam Cat's Eye Slash]], an attack powerful enough to almost always [[FinishingMove finish off]] the [[MonsteroftheWeek Robot of the Week]] in a single blow.

* CreepyCrossdresser: The Big Cheese.



* DecapitationPresentation: Humorously subverted in one particular episode. After the [[LemonyNarrator narrator makes a quip at Violet's expense]], she declares that his head will be put on public display. Cut to a scene where an actual photo of [[Creator/KenyuHoriuchi the narrator's voice actor]] has been pasted onto the screen. Although this scene was removed from the dub, it is considered one of the series' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny most memorable jokes]] among Japanese fans.

* FollowTheLeader: Accidental one at that. The approach they used for the new scripts worked so well it went to influence later shows (released for the US market) like Manga/CrayonShinChan, Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket, and even [[TakeshisCastle MXC]]!

* GagDub: Considered to be one of the best uses of this trope, by the actual licensee. This would lead to gag dubs of other anime like ''Anime/MonColleKnights'', ''Manga/CrayonShinChan'', Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket, and even a live-action series like ''[[TakeshisCastle MXC]]''.
