To my knowledge, Swamp Rats were never animated.

Swamp Rats were V-Troops created by Dr. Mindbender in 1993 and assigned primarily to forest, wetland, and shallow-water environments. They were led by Coil Crusher, and their appearance is represented by Version 3.

SWAMP RAT infiltrators are COBRA volunteers or captured civilians who have been genetically altered with the Venom serum. Having all the attributes of their marsh rodent namesakes, SWAMP RAT forces can slither undetected under the surface of fetid stagnant water for long periods, and compress their bodies to fit inside narrow drainpipes and sewers. Their nght-vision, hearing, and sense of smell are extremely acute, and they can subsist indefinitely on foodstuffs that would make a vulture sick. Not especially good as frontline combat troops, SWAMP RAT troops are more effective as infiltrators, behind-the-scenes saboteurs and spies. They have a natural ability to sneak up behind people and are very good at escaping and hiding when they are detected. When cornered, they will put up a frenzied resistance and attack even after surrendering.
"Nasty traps they set for us, and electrified fences—but none of that can keep us from creeping in and gnawing through their walls!"
