In 1983 Hasbro made a bold statement when it relaunched its classic toy line of action heroes as an adventure-based team of unique characters, each with his — and her — own specialties. And because it captured the imaginations and hearts of boys and girls aspiring to make a difference in the world, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero was an immediate success lasting over 25 incredible years.
Now the original animated adventures of Duke, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Flint, Lady Jaye and the rest of the team are featured on this 16-disc complete series set of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, including all 95 episodes and in-depth bonus features celebrating G.I. Joe’s rich history!

I also with they included the PSAs with each episode as originally aired instead of having them as extras. I would prefer that than constant commercial bumpers throughout each show. "G.I. Joe will be right back.... And now back to G.I. Joe..." That should have been an extra instead of the PSAs.
Otherwise, it is great watching this classic show! They really don't make them like this anymore.
The bad news is the same studio (whoever they are? Rhino? Shout?) who remastered Transformers, also did this. So it suffers from the same issues.
-Video Remastered from original 35mm film with no proper 3:2 pull down with aliasing (jaggies) appearing.
-Some video (missing from film masters) is replaced with the old analog broadcast masters which appear "out of place" since they lower quality.
-Audio is never consistent on mixing voices and sound effects, varies from episode to episode. Sometimes sound effects are to loud and can't hear the voices, other times voices are to loud and barely hear the sound effects.
-Text on ending credits is new, uses a different and smaller font then the original TV masters did.
Like with Transformers overall this is nice, but I still would have personally preferred either a "professional remaster" OR a remaster of the original analog masters...not this half-ass crap which is inconsistent.
The overall audio and video of the series is pretty good but nothing to write home about. All the special features, PSA's etc that are included on the individual releases are intact.
The biggest gripe I have is the discs I originally received where either manufactured wrong or covered in some sort of solvent. The discs played fine in my tray loading DVD player but I was afraid to use them in my slot loading PS3. My only fear is the discs not lasting after repeated viewings due to the above issues.
Only time will tell, hopefully this does not affect the health of this box set.
Now that you have cleaned them you can play them & enjoy your childhood memories while creating new memories with your kids.
I am very pleased to own this entire show on DVD now.
4 stars :)

I bought this set in late November last year and can confirm that there is some kind of manufacturing defect on the discs. Most discs have a hazy white residue on them. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer

How are these packaged? Cardboard sleeves, one giant hinged case, multiple decent slim packs?
