Samurai Pizza Cats is an American/Japanese animated television adaptation of the anime series Kyatto Ninden Teyandee (Cat Ninja Legend Teyandee), produced by Tatsunoko Productions and Sotsu Agency. Saban Entertainment picked up the North American rights to the series, which originally aired in Japan on TV Tokyo from February 1, 1990 to February 12, 1991 for a total of 54 episodes, and produced an English adaption for a total of 52 episodes. The English version of the series first aired on YTV in Canada in 1993, and on first-run syndication in the United States in 1996. The English version became a cult hit among anime fans due to its rapid-fire pop culture references and more farcical nature.

Saban's distribution rights to the series expired in 2002. Discotek Media currently holds the North American home video license to the series in North America, while Madman Entertainment holds the license for Australia.

The series is the second and last pilot episode of Garfiled1990 Productions' Digimon crossover series, Agumon's Adventures, before the next anime/non-anime/live-action adventures series, Samurai Pizza Cats' Adventures, also created by Garfiled1990. It also features the characters from Toei Animation's Digimon: Digital Monsters (known in Japan for the first season as Digimon Adventure) and Disney's Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series. The series was originally updated as a video on YouTube, Dailymotion and Zippcast (2012 - 2015), as a transcript on Google Drive and One Fans Blog from September to November 2012.


The pizza-delivery service, the Samurai Pizza Cats, are also young samurai crime-fighters in their spare time, ready to spring into action from their headquarters above the pizza parlour whenever someone is in trouble. Protecting their myopic Princess and the city from the evil Ninja Crow Clan led by the Big Cheese, they get into hilarious, action-packed scrapes, but always come out on top, mainly because the baddies are more incompetent than nefarious. However, when the Saurians (Lord Dragaunus, Siege, Wraith and Chameleon), previously defeated by the Mighty Ducks and the Digimon (Digital Monsters), is teaming up with the Ninja Crow Clan to attack the Samurai Pizza Cats before resuming their attempted conquest of Earth, Agumon, his Digimon buddies and the Mighty Ducks headed by Wildwing Flashblade will appear and strike back at their foes
