OnThisDay: Ninjatoes' papercraft webpage turns 10 with Samurai Pizza Cats pizza parlour (2002)!

The Samurai Pizza Cats pizza parlour wasn't the first papercraft model I ever made of course, but it was the first one that I scanned and shared online on my own papercraft webpage that I made, 10 years ago today! ;o)

That first website was a free Lycos account which is gone now, but you can still see an archived version here:

The Samurai Pizza Cats were a crime-fighting team of cybernetic cats (all the characters in the show were cybernetic animals) that protected Little Tokyo from "The Big Cheese" and his army of ninja crows.

By day, the Pizza Cats delivered pizzas to the hungry citizens of Little Tokyo but whenever there was a new attack, they quickly jumped into the pizza ovens to be transformed into powerful Samurai warriors and were then shot out of the gun on top of their Pizza Parlour headquarters! (hey, it's a cartoon, okay? ;o)

Like all of my first papercraft models, it was hand drawn and hand coloured, something that I still like to do from time to time. It's a pretty simple model, but I enjoyed making it so much that I kept making more paper models:
Have fun building!


  1. Wow, 'toes! I had no idea you had been doing papercraft so long! Keep up the good work. Congrats!

  2. Thanks! Making paper models is a lot of fun, so the years flew by! ;o)

    1. Yeah, that would be really cool! ;o) I don't know if I'll ever come around to it though, papercraft is only a hobby of mine and making the Pizza Cats would be very time consuming for me and I have so many other ideas as well... :o(
