A heady blast of nostalgia awaits in G.I. Joe Series 2: Season 2, the final go-round for DIC Entertainment's take on the long-running animated action series. It goes without saying that for many die-hard Joe fans, the DIC version, which ran from 1990 to 1991, pales in comparison with the previous incarnation by Sunbow Entertainment: only a handful of established characters, like General Hawk, Cobra Commander, and Duke, made the leap to the DIC series, which focuses largely on newer characters like Storm Shadow and the arch villain Cesspool. Animation quality, too, is subordinate to the Sunbow Joe, which may remain a stumbling block for many viewers. Despite these issues, the second season of the DIC Joe remains true to the series' core appeal: lots of animated action carried out by an elaborate array of Joe and Cobra characters in high-tension (and increasingly outrageous) scenarios. True, some of the plotlines border on camp, most notably the two-part "Long Live Rock and Roll," in which Cobra uses rock music to turn a skyscraper into a sonic weapon, and "Metal-Head's Reunion," in which the unstable Cobra heel Metal-Head and Captain Grid-Iron discover that they were former high school classmates. For many, these offbeat turns may increase the enjoyment of season two, and they don't detract from more straight-faced efforts like "The Chunnel," which finds the Queen of England in Cobra's clutches, and the ripe "Sludge Factor," which establishes the Joker-esque Cesspool as a brand-new villain. All 20 episodes of season two are included in the three-disc set, which does its best to preserve the lower-quality image and audio of the DIC presentation. A featurette called The Toy Team Remembers, which talks about the 1990-1991 Joe toy line with members of the Hasbro design and development team, is minor but likable. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

The battle rolls on in the final season of G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero, Series 2! General Hawk returns with his new team of JOEs, ready to take on any challenge by Cobra, a ruthless criminal organization out for world domination. And Cobra Commander’s clearly left the toughest challenges for last! Does G.I. JOE have what it takes to stop them?

The popular second season of this series from 1991 sees the return of fan favorite characters including Duke, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow in adventures more exciting than ever! And now you can complete your collection with all 20 episodes of this outrageous second season in one three-disc set!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't say someone didn't warn you! October 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm 37 years old and thus a child of the '80s. I loved the G.I. Joe cartoon and figure lines completely. But after G.I. Joe began to wane in interest in my area the DIC cartoons were relegated to Sunday mornings I think around 7am. My G.I. Joe DVD collection up until recently contained the Sunbow series and the G.I. Joe Movie which was a nice swansong but still... We knew there were more Joe episodes out there, right? I was lucky enough to see Operation: Dragon Fire with many of my familiar characters though different voices. That was nice and I appreciated it despite the lesser animations. I vaguely remembered the DIC episodes and was thrilled to finally be able to buy them.

While the first half of the season released prior was groan inducing (Is it me or did someone forbid DIC from having a single punch thrown and connect onscreen?) with stories and characters that didn't inspire the same sentimental feelings that the prior episodes had. I understood these were largely different characters but OK. Then came this second half of the season. Spoilers somewhat ahead:

Many of the G.I. Joes I grew up with returned. Grunt, Zap, Scarlet, Stalker, Snake Eyes, Duke, Mutt & Junkyard, Lowlight, Lady Jaye, Flint, Wetsuit, Hawk, Roadblock, and more. Too bad Scarlet is now a shop-a-holic airhead. Hawk is clueless. The stories are contrived or preachy. Gone is the charm of the original G.I. Joe cartoons.

I would only recommend this set to die-hard G.I. Joe fans who want to see anything close to the toons they watched growing up. And when I say "anything close" I mean heavy emphasis on ANYTHING. Oh well. Still beats the G.I. Joe Movie from 2 years ago.

"G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero - Series 2, Season 2" collects all 20 episodes of this 1991 show on three discs. This was not produced by Sunbow, but DiC and it shows in the animation quality. Also to be noted is the change in voice cast that took place. It also focuses on new characters for the most part. A few original characters are left including General Hawk, Duke, Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, and Destro.

Gone is the familiar "A Real American Hero" theme song, which is replaced by one that mentions America once instead of several times. The "A Real American Hero" tagline is missing from the show's logo as well. This was obviously done to sell the show easier to other countries.

The picture quality is probably the best Shout Factory could get using the original video source material. It still looks a lot better than any video cassette copies enthusiasts have been watching up until now. The audio is mono but has good clarity. There's been no fake stereo conversion performed here.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tech Heavy G.I. Joe Show! December 8, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While I like the light-hearted tone of this series; it noticed there are more vehicles and potential toys being showcased in this version. The stories, while well written, are still true to the spirit of the franchise. I still purchased this just for the nostalgia factor and how cartoons were produced in the 1990's. Back when cartoons were in syndication; the producers could create stories that normally would not be in Saturday morning cartoons.

The DIC G.I. Joe series is not the same as the Sunbow Joe series of the early-mid 80's. The animation is not as comic book-like/detailed, all voice actors (except Cobra Commander's) have changed. Characters have came and gone,ect... I was born in 1980...So I grew up to where I was able to enjoy both series. The DIC series offers some interesting/different characters. It offers the Ninja Force (which Storm Shadow is on the Joe's side),Eco Warriors (a group w/ Flint in charge, taking on polution & a toxic sludge group ran by a guy name Sess Pool), a drug lord which Cobra & the Joes team up to defeat! They have added a more humorous side to the G.I. Joe series too. General Hawk has been dumbed down & clumsy often throughout the series. There are 20 episodes in this season. The quality definitely shows it's age a bit. But on this DVD it's definitely quite a bit better than VHS versions,recorded episodes on VHS, or even bootlegs! I bought a bootleg complete DIC set for $20.00 2 & a half years ago (before the real DIC DVD's were out). And though the bootleg version wasn't horrible (it was VHS quality) this is better for sure!!!! I recommend this DVD to anyone that liked the DIC series. Anyone that's interested in it. Or someone trying to complete their Joe collection. The DIC Joe series has mixed reviews. Many people that grew up with the older Sunbow series don't really like this one. But, some (like myself & many of my friends) do!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah for G.I. Joe July 30, 2012
Format:DVD
I remember G.I. Joe from when my brothers were younger and honestly I always liked it. This set is great because it features all 20 episodes from Season 2 (Series 2) of the show. I think it is great too that my husband can now share his love of the show with our boys. The show doe obviously have weapons but I didn't find it real inappropriate for kids. It is classic G.I.Joe fun. Oh and the animation is the best they could probably get since the show is like 20 years old!

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked it. May 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series was okay, but it was not as good as the first. The action was okay, but the voices were not on point like in the first series. The stories were predictable and it seemed liked they were just trying to sell products when they were available, but it was good to see the new characters get there time on the screen.

Not bad but somehow military equipment painted in day-glow colors kinda ruined it for me. The first season seemed better than the second.
