Pursued by intergalactic warlord Krulos and his Rulons, human Valorians fly through a wormhole and end up on the prehistoric Earth. Krulos follows and becomes stuck in prehistory as well. Both sides build dinosaur armies and engage.
After yet another defeat inflicted by G.I. Joe, the immediate subordinates of Cobra's leader, Cobra Commander, have finally come to the end of their patience with his apparent incompetence and his inability to achieve real victories. The leader of the research and interrogations wing, Dr. Mindbender, receives a dream showing the solution. His plan is to collect the genetic material of great warriors and military leaders to create a composite clone that would be the perfect leader for Cobra. Now they set out to put this scheme into motion, and G.I. Joe has very little time to learn of this plot before Cobra becomes that much more a dire threat to the world.Written by

There are two different versions of the opening episode: The first starts with no background music through about the first 10 minutes (The softball game, the Cobra attack on the base, the arrival of Sgt. Slaughter); the music doesn't start until the Joes are shown doing their running exercises. All other versions (including the Rhino DVD version) include background music starting at the opening titles. See more »
Well, for those of us that remember the comic books more than the cartoon...watching it again is super confusing. And the military ranks seem to make no sense. Duke is in charge, and he's a Master Sergent...and he's in charge over Lieutenant Falcon.
Falcon is an O2, Duke only an E8, it should really be the other way around, right? Or was it inspired by Oliver Stone's Platoon?
Who cares, it also has a man dressed as a snake flying around on a regal throne thing...with lazers.
And in typical GI Joe cartoon fashion no one dies...and that was likely because of the trauma Transformers caused me and so many other children.
Really, honestly, it's just an absolutely awesome and insanely high quality cartoon that the adult can enjoy for more than nostalgic reasons.
