Trivia

Larry Hama was also the writer of the file cards written on the back of the packaging of the G.I. Joe toy line. The files where short biographies of both the Joes and Cobra soldiers. See more »

Goofs

Midway through "Cobra's Candidate", Storm Shadow tells Buzzer that Cobra Commander has sent him a communique about the pep rally, to which Buzzer replies "Come on mate; Cobra Commander knows I can't read." Per his file-card, however, Buzzer was a college professor prior to becoming a Dreadnok, and as such would most certainly know how to read. See more »

Yo Joe!
13 May 2005 | by (Annalong, N. Ireland) – See all my reviews

I love this series. I developed an interest in it a couple of years ago and I've loved it ever since. THe battle between Joe and Cobra is very entertaining with colourful characters on both sides. I first saw the show when I was a kid. That was when the show was named ACTION FORCE in the UK. I now have the movie on video and the first half of Season One on DVD. The show has not disappointed me so far.

There's great voice work from 80s voice maestros like Chris Latta and Neil Ross. The humour in the show is very appealing as well as there are constantly petty power struggles in the Cobra ranks. Perhaps the introduction of Serpentor wasn't such a good idea, but the show still had good moments. I heard a rumour that there may be a real life GI JOE movie. I hope there will be. If it's based on the Devil'a Due comic that would be good because what I've seen of that comic is great. Here's hoping.
