Kyattou Ninden Teyande takes place in the city of Little Tokyo, a meld of feudal and modern Japanese culture, whose citizens are walking, talking animals.
When the head palace guard catches wind that the corrupt prime minister Seymour Cheese decides to become emperor and take over Little Tokyo, he knows that only one group can save Little Tokyo: the owners of a local pizza joint, the Pizza Cats! Serving delicious pizza by day, this trio's true occupation is meowvelous warriors of justice! The Samurai Pizza Cats will do whatever it takes to protect Little Tokyo!
Kyattou Ninden Teyande was dubbed by Saban Entertainment under the name "Samurai Pizza Cats", which featured an entirely new, pop-culture-heavy English script. Their licensing agreement lasted 11 years before expiring in 2002.
While all episodes (excluding the two clip shows) were dubbed, several went unaired in the United States.
