Trivia:
At one point, Cobra was going to be Soviets, but this idea was dropped because it was considered culturally insensitive. Regardless, in "The Great Alaskan Land Rush," the Soviet counterpart to GI Joe, The October Guard, is an antagonist attempting to get an important seal in order for the USSR to reclaim Alaska.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: Whenever Cobra Commander wears his hood, we see his (clearly) human eyes and eyebrows. However, as shown in G.I. Joe: The Movie, the Commander in actuality has blue skin and reptilian-like eyes as a result of being mutated by spores.See more »
Quotes:
Flint:[pointing to Baroness on her speeder boat] There!
Baroness, Mongolian Warrior, Sandy:[Pulls off her mask, puts on her glasses] All's fair in love and war!
[Blows him a kiss as she escapes on her speeder boat]
Baroness, Mongolian Warrior, Sandy:It could have been WONDERFUL, Flint!
[Flint waves good bye to her as she escapes with an incredulous but wry grin]
Lady Jaye:Are you SURE that stuff wore off?

Whenever There's Trouble, 20 July 2001
Author: Thor2000 from Collinsport, Maine

This show was it when I was in high school. I lived, breathed and talked this show. I could mimmick all the voices, write my own stories with them and collect all the figures. This cartoon had it all ! Great stories, wonderful humor, incredible action and all the women were complete babes, especially the Baroness with her tight black body suit (almost a precursor to Michelle Pfeiffer as the Catwoman). The heroes were a lot like Hogan's Heroes or the A-Team; almost completely infallible and always prepared. Unfortunately, nothing this good lasts for long. GIJoe the Movie with Don Johnson and Burgess Meredith marked the end as the series was taken over by other producers and quickly ruined with stupid situations, bad stories, lousy animations and everyone's favorite characters eliminated. With that sort of damage, the legacy ended not with a bang (the movie), but with a whimper.
