Who Is Your Favorite G.I. Joe?


As I was wrapping up my work for the day, my oldest son came home from a friend’s house and hopped on his computer to watch an episode of G.I. Joe.

While typing my last email, I heard the theme song playing and was instantly reminded of how much I used to love this cartoon. The amazing thing was that I still remembered the lyrics to the song and could not help myself but join in on the fun as the episode kicked off…

Yo Joe!
He’ll fight for freedom where ever there’s trouble.
GI Joe is there.
It’s GI Joe against Cobra and Destro
Fighting to save the day.
He never gives up.
He’s always there,
Fighting for freedom over land and air.

Did you watch G.I. Joe as a kid?

I remember watching G.I. Joe quite a bit as a kid and had a box full of the action figures - don’t you dare call them dolls! Many of those action figures are now in the possession of my kids as my mom never threw anything away.

Snake-Eyes GI JoeWhile my son was watching the cartoon, he turned and asked me “Dad, who is your favorite G.I. Joe?”

Without hesitating a second I quickly answered Snake-Eyes.

Snake-Eyes was my favorite because he was like the silent assassin. He didn’t talk - bonus points for anyone that can tell me why Snake-Eyes did not (or could not) talk - and kicked butt with his mastery of various martial arts. As if that were not enough, he also rode a motorcycle and that was the epitome of cool in my adolescent eyes.

My son responded that his favorite characters were Snake-Eyes and Sgt. Slaughter.

I’m obviously in full agreement with Snake-Eyes but not so much on Sgt. Slaughter. Maybe it was because I was a huge fan of WWF wrestling as a kid but I still associate Sgt. Slaughter more with his antics in the squared circle than I do with episodes of G.I. Joe.

Before I head off to watch Iceberg Goes South with my son, I thought I would ask all of you…

    I totally agree, Snake Eyes was the best! Remember the comic book? There was one issue without any dialogue about him.
