Episode contains racist undertones
18 February 2012 | by (Miami, FL, USA) – See all my reviews

G.I. Joe: The Invaders (1-50) originally aired on November 29, 1985. This episode contained dialogue that was disturbingly racist even for 1985. In one scene Dusty declares "Me and the camel jockey got a lot in common. He likes the desert as much as I do!" A short time after that, Gung Ho exclaims, "There's nothing' I hate more than a Ruski!" While I understand that the U.S. was at odds with Soviet Russia and the during the Cold War, the term Ruski was always offensive and it is even more inappropriate in the 21st century. This cartoon needs to be edited. Free speech does not include 'fighting words' and fighting words are all the more reprehensible in a children's cartoon. Kids imitate what they hear. The adults who wrote the dialogue in this episode should know better than to write that garbage.
