Editorial Reviews

Yo Joe! G.I. Joe is the code name for America’s highly-trained special missions force. Its purpose: to defend human freedom against Cobra, a ruthless organization determined to rule the world!
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Discs November 17, 2012
By thekat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not about the TV series, but about the discs themselves. The first set I ordered had some sort of residue all over the disc surface. I tried to remove it, only to make it worse. I returned it and got another set, and the second set had the exact same problem. I would not want to play these in my ps3 or blu-ray player only to cause damage. Really, the disc surface looks terrible! Like they have dry glue on them or something. If I never accidentally dropped one on the floor, I might have never even noticed. Now, I am really going to make sure to check discs when I buy them. Luckily, I did not sell my Collector's Edition which I had planned to replace with this. I just wanted something that took up less space. Oh, well. I tried... twice.

Both G.I. Joe & Transformers Original TV Series were created by the same studio, SunBow/Marvel and they did a great job. Even if some of it seems a bit corny since you've grown up, the animation, story lines, characters etc. are in my opinion one of the best we have had in TV Animation especially in the 80s.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great show but bad DVDs. February 9, 2013
By SES
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this show! I always have. This is a review of the DVDs themselves. Most of them came with a discoloration on discs that caused skipping and freezing. I am overseas in Japan with the Navy so shipping it back would have been hard. I used a disc cleaner/grinder to clear a layer of the discs which did make them work without further problems. I shouldn't have had to do that with a brand new DVD set.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible discs May 14, 2013
By Tim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read the reviews and still took a chance on these. There's residue or glue all over the discs. I've never seen this before on a DVD. I ordered a replacement, but same issue. I tried a CD polisher and Pledge, but nothing seems to work. I will be returning these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scuff marks on Seasons 1.1 & 1.2 April 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So I have a solution for the scuff marks that are on the discs. I know they are new & we shouldn't have to clean them but it seems to be a problem with all the discs in 1.1 & 1.2 more so in 1.1. I had bought Pledge Multi Surface spray (not foam) for used games & movies to fix scratches. It will also remove the scuff marks on these discs as well. Just remember when you go to rub the discs to go inside out & not in a circular motion so that you don't damage the disc.

Now that you have cleaned them you can play them & enjoy your childhood memories while creating new memories with your kids.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series, so so release January 8, 2013
Format:DVD
I grew up on this series, bought the toys and almost every tie in to G.I. Joe. I was very excited to see this release, I really wanted to the series but the foot locker was just over kill. First the packaging is well done, simple but informative. They basically repackaged the 4 DVD sets that had been previously released in one collection with a bonus outer slip case.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good transfer, discs are OK April 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read through the reviews here before I ordered this, and decided to roll the dice anyway (hoping my discs wouldn't be affected like other earlier reports), and I am happy to say my discs arrived uncoated in weird stuff like the previous reviews, so hopefully that was just an earlier supply issue that has been resolved. The discs contain fairly clean copies of the episodes I remember from when I was a kid, and I fully intend to show this show to my kids (instead of letting them watch the garbage on TV now). The episodes could have been cleaned up better (you can still see plenty of artifacting, and random film detritus mucking up the picture), but it is a lot better than any old VHS copies still lying around, and I've never seen the full series available before, so overall I am happy with the set.

I am very pleased to own this entire show on DVD now.

4 stars :)

5.0 out of 5 stars "YO-JOE!" This is the top set to get for the money.
This set has it all: Has all the shows, lots of extras, booklets on the shows, & the box is sturdy. Only thing you need to complete this set, is the "movie".
