Customer Reviews

What a memory trip!
N. Lamb
When I was younger, G.I. Joe was my favorite cartoon and I couldn't wait to go outside and pretend that I was one of the Joes fighting the notorious Cobra.
A. Gyurisin
The intros and credits, however, are not restored (as seems to be the case for the majority of said clips on the sets so far).

With Rhino's remastering of The Transformers nearly complete, it should come as no surprise that their next target for a wide DVD release has been G.I. Joe. Often considered to be the best of the toyline-related cartoons made by Marvel and Sunbow, the show has remained quite popular even as it has become overshadowed by the various comic book series produced by Marvel and Devil's Due.
The episodes are re-mastered in similar fashion to other Rhino sets, which is to say excellently. There's maybe one "new" error in the episodes (involving a card read by Mutt that must have been changed late in production), and two that have been corrected by digital means. The intros and credits, however, are not restored (as seems to be the case for the majority of said clips on the sets so far). The sound has been restored again with a new 5.1 mix, but there's a new wrinkle-the original audio has been included for *all* episodes, and identified as such. (In the past, the 2.0 track has been a crap shoot between a down mix from the 5.1 or the original audio.)
As for extras, there are two good interviews with Christy Marx and Wally Burr, and 24 of the classic PSAs (many of which did appear on the G.I. Joe: The Movie DVD, though)-which leaves about a dozen PSAs across Seasons 1 and 2 to be shown on future sets.
There are some relatively minor drawbacks, though. Other than the Pyramid of Darkness episodes, the intro is the one from Season 2, as opposed to the correct Season 1 intro. None of the episodes conclude with a PSA before the end credits, which may or may not irk some (even though so many of the PSAs are collected on disc 4).

Hey guys, if you still want this set at a reasonable price, there are still lots of stores that have them.

I'm not going to name them due to the fact that the third party seller a-holes would probably buy them to sell at their bent over prices.

They're just a bunch of punks trying to get rich off dvd sets since they're too stupid to be reasonable.

This dvd set is still selling at the $40 range at stores along with the Transformer sets.

Don't buy from the third party seller punks (good luck selling at your $80 price you a-holes).

I have three major complaints. First, the re-coloring of the show leaves a lot to be desired. Yes, the colors are more vibrant, but in a way it takes away from the grittier, military feel of the show. They also seem to overlap some of the detail, almost like you are watching an animated coloring book with smaller color palette than the original style.

Secondly, the line-up of episodes is all over the place on the timeline. It really makes me wonder who was in charge of that decision. I mean really, wouldn't have made more sense to, I don't know, maybe, KEEP THE EPISODES IN ORDER? It actually does disrupt the quality because some of the characters or story archs seem way out of place and don't align themselves with any kind of time continueum. Basically, you will be watching random episodes.

Thirdly, the opening sequence is from the THIRD season. I can't fathom why they would do this.

Still though, it is G.I JOE on DVD. So I guess it is still worth getting just to see all the episodes, but they really dropped the ball with every aspect on how they packaged it. At least Transformers stayed in order....

With all the new releases of the Transformers on DVD, it was only a matter of time before G.I. Joe showed up. What a memory trip! Actually, the first thing I was struck by was the storylines. Compared to Transformers, the writing for most of these episodes is superb. (A few are still rather weak, though.) I have rekindled my love of Zartan, who now that I think about it, looks like a guitar player in a Norwegian Black Metal band. (How cool would that be?!) The episodes are great and I am still disappointed that Cobra cannot figure out the way to world domination has nothing to do with kidnapping scientists. They waste so much time that way. Anyhow, among the more amusing things in this collection are the sound effects. Listen carefully and you will hear all sorts of sounds from the Star Wars movies...lightsabers, TIE Fighters, blaster fire!! I have noticed this with Transformers, too. It is pretty funny to hear the Cobra troops fire a weapon that sounds like the floating training ball Luke uses on the Millenium Falcon. They don't even bother to edit out the sound of Luke flicking the light saber off. This is still a great DVD and I will certainly waste a lot of time watching the episodes instead of studying.
