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 lyrics refer to "GI Joe against Cobra and Destro". Starting with the second mini-series, that line would be changed to "GI Joe against Cobra the Enemy". Additionally, international versions of the cartoon omit ANY reference to Cobra in the song lyrics, merely referring to them as "The Enemy", and changes the tag-line "A Real American Hero" to "International Heroes".

At the end of the first cliffhanger, Ramar the Giant Slave swings his arms and knocks down two stone columns (a preposterous notion in and of itself); as the second episode opens, a large overhead shot now shows the two columns that he knocked down about 50 yards apart. In order to knock them down, Ramar would have needed a wingspan of about 150-160 feet! See more »
This show was really biased towards the GI JOES. They don't give COBRA the respect it deserves. The totally sweet tanks, bitchin jet planes, those cobra pods, all the Cobra army was ridiculously sweet. The intimidation of COBRA stands strong in peoples minds. All the characters of GIJOE were like-able on both sides. It was always sweet watching each guy do his special thing, whippin out grappling hooks, skis, alligators, missle launchers, big machine guns, ninja weapons, flame throwers, chainsaw guns, crossbows, you name it.. its probably someones weapon of choice. Of course, the Cobra Commander only needs his trusty sidearm. That's how many people you gotta go through to get to me!
