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.

We can't let him shake us! That nickel-noggin bozo is all the Cobra brass we've got!
This is one 'bozo' who won't be got at all!

I have fond memories of watching G.I. Joe. I was in junior high when it became a regular series, and still remember coming home from school just in time to watch it.
It has plenty of action, there's no question about that. Nonetheless, one would gripe that, despite all the battle scenes, no one gets killed. But I suspected that the producers had managed to sneak some fatalities into the show every now and then. For example, I recall one occasion where a Cobra trooper falls during a gunfight, only to never get back up. And at other times, some characters (mainly Cobra troopers) stumble near explosions. I believe that they pulled off some casualties in such a way that many viewers are unlikely to notice.
One of my favorite episodes is the two-parter, "There's No Place Like Springfield." That's the one where Shipwreck supposedly had amnesia. It's a great mystery story.
Besides Shipwreck, my other favorite characters include: Lifeline, Duke, Snake Eyes, Zartan, Dr. Mindbender, Barbecue, and Blowtorch.
One interesting thing about Lifeline is that he is a medic, and refuses to touch a weapon. But one has to wonder why the toy action figure came with a pistol.
