In this first GI Joe film, the team must contend with COBRA who, after a successful raid for a special broadcast satellite, now threatens the world with a teleportation devise called the MASS devise which can snatch anything seemingly out of existence around the world as well as normal teleportation. GI Joe find the original designer of the device who advises the only way to counter that weapon is to build a MASS device of their own. However to do that, three rare exotic elements are needed to power the device properly. Now the team must race around the world and find those supplies, while battling COBRA who has the same need for them as well. Written by

The scene in the opening montage of Flash firing his laser rifle at a target is actually taken from the commercial for the "GI JOE #1" comic. See more »
Ramar's height fluctuates throughout the entire mini-series. When Duke first confronts Ramar in the Arena of Sport, Ramar towers over him, and looks to be somewhere between 13-14 feet tall (if we are to believe Scarlett's line that Duke is 6'2"). In the second episode, in close quarter combat with Duke, Ramar looks to be a couple of feet taller than Duke, which would place him in the 8-9 foot range. By the fourth episode, Ramar stands next to Selena and is barely taller than she is, which would make him somewhere between 6-7 feet tall. See more »
This five-part mini-series introduced the world to what would become (at least in my opinion) the best cartoon ever put on TV. All the ingredients which would become the hallmarks of the series were in place: superb animation, a wide array of complex heroes and villains, fervent patriotism and, most importantly, non-stop action.
In their first of countless conflicts with the terrorist organization Cobra, the G.I. Joe force--Duke, Scarlet, Lady Jaye, Snake Eyes, et al--face arms dealer Destro's nefarious MASS device. Their battle takes them around the world in a desperate race to retrieve the three elements which power MASS, from the frigid Arctic to the ocean floor. The showdowns are awesome and incessant, right up to the final assault on Cobra Commander's hidden temple.
I watched this show religiously as a kid, and now, in my mid-twenties, I find it just as stimulating as ever. For Cold War propaganda at its best, nothing tops G.I. Joe.
