I went through and grabbed a frame from every single scene from this cartoon, one of my favorites. A couple of scenes have two, maybe three, if there was a camera move for instance. There were more scenes in SIS than in your typical cartoon from that time, because of the way the story was set up: each line was a slang term and each shot visualized the term.
These images taken from a VHS copy of the French laserdisc version of the cartoon. I have reason to believe that these colors are not correct. They're too contrast-y and the whites are too white (or, as we say in the biz, the "whites are too hot").
