TV show description:
Based on the popular action figures, this animated series follows G.I. Joe, a highly trained group of personnel from all branches of the United States military.
In charge of the Joe team are General Hawk (Ed Gilbert), Duke (Michael Bell), Flint (Bill Ratner) and Beach Head (William Callaway). Other members include Dial Tone (Hank Garrett), Doc (Buster Jones), Dusty (Neil Ross), Footloose (Will Ryan), Gung Ho (Chris Latta), and Lady Jaye (Mary McDonald Lewis).
The group’s main adversary is Cobra, a terrorist organization whose goal is world domination. Cobra is led by the cowardly Cobra Commander (Chris Latta) and iron-masked Destro (Arthur Burghardt). Team members include Baroness (Morgan Lofting), Buzzer (Neil Ross), Dr. Mindbender (Brian Cummings), Major Bludd (Michael Bell) and Monkeywrench (Neil Ross).
Though the series centers around battles, none of the characters die or are seriously injured.
