So, the GI JOE series is now on NetFlix.

On the one hand, it’s an integral part of my childhood. On the other hand, I am terrified at how much the animation probably sucks.

On the gripping hand, I mostly wanted to watch this again:

Which is, of course, from the movie.

    Have you seen the new Dallas show? Oh yeah thats right, you don’t have cable! Sucks to be you!

    Sunbow’s animation was heads and shoulders above most US stuff of the era (I think they contracted out to Japan or Korea), but they still had to work within a budget.

    I rewatched a few shows a while back. In one of them Shipwreck rides a rocket bareback. As a kid this did not seem odd at all.

    Hmm, well…C.O.B.R.A. agents display poor form as they descend on their WWII style parachutes – I’d count on lots of broken legs and damaged spines on landing. It was interesting to see the pre-restoration flame on Miss Liberty’s torch…and I laughed out loud at the hippie-with-a-flamethrower…
