As I'm sure many of us are aware, the Cartoon Network has been showing the eighties-era GI Joe cartoons at 12:30 AM on weekdays. Needless to say, I have been enjoying them immensely. It has come to my attention that they are considering whether or not to continue them past December. I humbly ask that you click on the link and ask them to continue to show GI Joe at whatever timeslot they find convenient. http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/gen/help/index.html I'm not sure if this is the best place for this sort of request, but I gotta' have my GI Joe! Yo Joe!!

I would, but all the Joe's are terrible shots and the pilots are amazingly quick with the eject handle. Everyone who got shot would catch the laser beam in the deltoid and every pilot ejected 1.5503 seconds before the plane blew up. I don't know, something tells me these spec ops guys weren't all that. And what's up with Cobra Commander, that lisp would get his ass kicked around any metropolitan area these days. And Destro? Come on buddy, why weren't you hittin' the Baroness like every episode. That gal was BEGGIN' for it!!! I'd hit it. And Shipwreck was gay. He starred in way too many episodes...I kept waiting for Snake Eyes to rough him then toss him over to Roadblock whoed then give him a real beatin USMC bruisin'...afterwhich Snake Eyes would go off and tear a piece off from Scarlet. Now I'd definately hit THAT. Forgive me, I digressed...But was it me, or did EVERYONE aim their shots 20 feet too high? Answer me this, and I shall click your link.

Dude, my favorite cartoon, Robotech, would make mince meat out of the Joes. We had planes that tranform and we almost never miss because of our targeting computers. Even some of our main charactors were killed. And poor little Min-mai would make a perfect love slave. [:D]

Well, at least the Joes could probably hit the Zentradi, although I doubt their weapons would have done much damage. The SDF-1's reflex cannon could have really ruined Cobra's day. If you haven't seen it, do a search for 'Macross' on ebay and get the Macross movie. Minmei finally gets what has been comming to her near the end. The animation is incredible, especially in one part where 3 Valkries are skimming the ocean and throwing a good size plume of water behind them.....

1) I can't get cable :( 2) I'm sure I could find all sorts of crap wrong w/ GI Joe 3) I do, however, have fond memories of GI Joe (not those kind of memories you perverts!) That being said, I went to bat for you on this one. If I could watch GI Joe, I probably would. On a somewhat related (in an 80s cartoon w/guns way) note, they have started producing DVD sets of the original transformers episodes (though pretty darn pricey). woohoo

You know what? I really don't give a crap about G.I. Joe. I'm just here to keep busy while I ignore another "Ignore my Rant" thread.

I'm sorry, but the Gummi Bears would make all your Joes, Smurfs, Transformers, and Robotechs dead sooooooo fast. Shit, the freakin' Care Bears could kick the shit out of the Joes.

Feedback sent. But I may not be much help. I noticed I spelled "not" nto about one-tenth of a second after I hit "Submit"..... I liked Marvel's GI Joe comics better. Actual death and shit in the comics. (I loved the premiere issue, IIRC, when the one guy wasted the Cobra guards with the remote controlled twin .50 turret on the Jeep while being held prisoner, cause he pocketed the remote.....) Scott EDIT: Misspelled "feedback" in my post about misspelling "not" in my feedback. I type with both index fingers, and when I go too fast, I flip letters.....
Link Posted: 12/29/2002 8:17:01 PM EST
Anyway...... I just checked out the program list for the Cartoon Network at 12:30 am January 2nd and GI JOE IS THERE!!*** THUNDERCATS HO!! ***just like in the opening sequence music!
