What should they do? The cartoon was over-the-top. The joes were hardly ever "Sneaky".

They hardly ever screamed anything in the comic books. :cool:

Its a way for kids to join along. Who didnt yell Yo Joe! along with the troops?

They say "hooah" in real life (tho' prolly not during a real mission). . .but either way, it doesn't sound too much different to me.

Most cartoons for a toyline had a battle cry.

THUNDERCATS! HO'OOOOOOOOO!

TURTLE POWER!!!

Marketing wise battle cries were a brilliant idea. Kids yelled it while watching the show, playing outside, at dinner, in the car. When Birthday/Christmas rolled around, parents knew exactly what to get.

"YO JOE!" or "COOOOBBBRRRAAA"

When I hit Target, Wal-Mart, or TRU I go running towards the Toy Aisle sreaming

"YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JOOOEEE!"

Then my wife gives me my prozac and everything is alll right.
