Notes:

Programmer Ed Suchocki shares this story about Bad Cats:

Dan Forden and I had several discussions about the music and sound effects for this game. At the time, I was a fan of the band Alice Cooper. I felt the game would be right with the music style of their tune, “Gutter Cat vs. the Jets”. There is a section that has that “West Side Story” feel to it and I thought it would be great in the game. Dan went and created a version of the theme for the game. The flavor of this inspiration can be heard during the activation of the spinning of the playfield wheel as well as other shots on the game.

Mark Ritchie told us that he had a slight role as a singer for the audio track in the “Seafood” segment.
