Storyline

The G.I. Joe Special Missions Force must contend with COBRA who, after a successful raid for a special broadcast satellite, now threatens the world with a revolutionary device called the MASS device which can snatch anything seemingly out of existence around the world as well as normal teleportation. GI Joe finds the original designer of the device who advises that the only way to counter that weapon is to build a MASS device of their own. However to do that, three rare catalytic 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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

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".

Goofs

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 show should be back on tv right now!
5 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

G.I.Joe is one of the greatest shows ever made and I say it deserves to be put back on tv. Then all the young kids can see something that their parents once watched when they were young. I also feel since the actors who were the voices of General Hawk and Cobra Commander have died the show should be put back on for their memory and to show respect to the actors who are still alive. This show should be back on because of the advice at the end of each episode that was endorsed by the National Child Safety Council. I say if a government group has endorsed a show it is good enough to have on tv!
