The line of action figures included one for Zartan the Swamp Master, a villain who was a master of disguise and who could camouflage himself like a chameleon. The action figure had photoreactive "skin" that would turn blue when exposed to direct sunlight, as did his vehicle. In the animated series, Zartan was allergic to sunlight and would be weakened when exposed to it, which also turned his skin blue. However, the figure was taken off the shelves late in 1986.

At the end of "The Traitor, Part 1", Duke is put in a coma that he does not come out of until the end of part 2. However, when the GI Joe grunts are seen scaling the arena walls and begin attacking the Crimson Guard Commanders Xamot and Tomax, Duke can clearly be seen climbing with the grunts and diving on top of the twins.

One of the few 80s cartoons that has a chance of appealing to youth today.
As a skeptical TV watcher (especially of old stuff) this is one of those 80s "made-for-kids" cartoons that can appeal to youth of today, as well as be interesting enough for teens/adults to watch.
This cartoon has the action, thrills and memorable characters that a 6 year old seeks, but has the literary complexity, subtle humour, and general excellent entertainment value that teens and adults would appreciate.
The Joes, a diverse team of commandos, fight the evil forces of Cobra day in and day out. Each Joe brings a different attribute and personality to the team (personalities that come to life thanks to the talented voice cast - read the credits, you'll see!)
The plots always entail an interesting and often elaborate storyline featuring a diabolical plot for world-domination by Cobra Commander and/or his subordinates (Destro, Baroness, Crimson Guard Twins, Maj. Bludd e.t.c...)
The art quality is excellent - it has an 80s super-hero comic style to it which adds a lot to that nostalgic effect. The animation is satisfactory; it varies between episodes.
Best part is learning the names (real and code) of all of the characters (good and bad), as there are literally tons of characters mixed into the salad bowl that is G.I. Joe, A Real American Hero.
For you 80s toon a-holics out there, this is an absolute MUST HAVE in your library. I only wish it was still on TV for today's generation to see.
