    When I was a kid I loved GI Joe the cartoon is what got me into the toys I never was that much into the comic, I read them because my friends would let me and it helped my understanding but the cheap thrill of the corny cartoons fed my appetite.

    I tried watching them on TV with my nephew but just can't. I can watch other cartoons but GI Joe is just too corny for me to take. I blew $20 on the original Mass Device cartoon but can't even watch that one though that and the Weather Dominator really made the cartoon.

    There are some terrible eps, that is true. I cannot comment on Mass Device and Weather Dominator as I have not seen either in about 2 decades.

    Some good episodes:

    No Place Like Springfield

    Haul Down the Heavens

    Money to Burn

    Most Dangerous Thing in the World

    I can still watch it. I got 4 DVD sets so far. The episodes that I thought was corny as a kid are still corny to me as an adult. I still get a kick out of 'em anyways. Whenever I watch an episode it still make me want to continue collecting.

    Since you can't watch G.I. Joe no more, mail me your DVDs. I'm sure I can find someone who'll watch 'em.

    That's sad to hear. I do understand your point though. I haven't seen the cartoons since I was a kid, and now I bought all the dvd sets. I also think they are pretty cheesy, but I love them. It brings back good memories, and I like to see the stories take place that I remember watching as a kid. They are cheesy, but they are entertaining too. I love the show, and will continue to watch them and buy all the dvd sets as they are released. I've gotten tired of some of the episodes, but only a few. Hopefully the cheesiness doesn't ruin GI Joe for you.

    I don’t have any problems watching Joe cartoons, I sort of enjoy them every once in a while.

    ...I think deadshot is right, you just have to turn off your brain and it's all good campy fun

    It sure beats the H#!! out of watching all the crappy reality TV shows that are on TV now...
