G.I. Joe is a cartoon originally made to help market Hasbro's action figure toyline. However, it's amazing to see the amount of care writers placed in the plots and dialogue, especially when they didn't have to. It's really top quality (most of the time) despite some animation bloopers. Unlike many cartoons today, this one has some basis in reality (and is still relevant 20 years later!).
Pros: The five part "Pyramids of Darkness" story is a great lead-in to the regular series. Episode "Red Rocket's Glare" is one of the all-time best there is. Episode "Twenty Questions" features a Heraldo Rivera spoof. Episode "Haul Down the Heavens" features a green-house effect story way before it became topical. Episode "Cobra's Candidate" features a political story that may be appreciated by adults.
Cons: Some animation goofs here and there (it doesn't really detract from the stories being told). An example: episode "Where the Reptiles Roam" has bad guys escaping in the good guys vehicle by mistake. Also there could be more special features(they do include interviews with Christy Marx of Marvel Comics and Wally Burr).
Overall: Not only an excellent trip down memory lane to '80's cartoons but you may just see something that the keen writers threw in that you understand now as an adult! GREAT FOR KIDS AND ADULTS with PG cartoon violence.
Fans of the 80's cartoon know that none of the stuff Hasbro or Marvel has come out with since then can replace what they had going for them in the 80's when most of us were kids coming home from school to enjoy our 'real American hereos' over a bowl of Fruit Loops. We watch the pointless, rediculous, politically correct dribble they're feeding our kids now and we wonder, "where have all the good shows gone?" Okay, the old G.I. Joe is campy, unrealistic, and yes, its old style animation is nothing compared to the C.G.I. of today. But unlike the G.I. Joe cartoons of today, the characters of the original have real personality. The plots were actually engaging. And, campy as some of it might have been, its still a lot more believable than what they have these days. Give your kids a chance; they might even end up loving the old G.I. Joe as much as you do.
As far as special feature go, they're not bad. The DVDs could have more of them, but as I don't forsee any deluxe edition in the future, I'd say this DVD set is definitely worth getting.
Fans, you have to have this, and being that its discontinued and becoming so hard to find, I suggest you not be afraid to bid high.
The DVD's were good. They were complete episodes of the first year of G.I. Joe. I decieded to purchase Season One Part One because I thought that it would be an excelent addition to my collection. The DVD's are extremely rare and imposible to find in stores.
This Season of G.I Joe is not has cool and fun and Season 2 but it still brings back the fight against evil and good and has many hours of entertainment for your viewing. But if you haven't seen this season it is a must see and enjoy it with family and friends would make it even better!!!
