...And knowing's half the battle! Wink

YES! G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero will be coming to DVD (again)! Very Happy
This is one of my favorite childhood cartoons (not to mention toyline and comic book series), so I'm definitely excited to see this coming back.
Look for "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero"- Season 1, Part 1 to be released on a DVD set on July 21st. Nice that it'll be at least in the month of July in keeping with an American patriotic theme, though Independence Day is of course on July 4th.
And it'll be right in time to promote the live action movie- "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra"! (Can't wait to see that one! - August 7th!) Smile
As some may be aware, Rhino Video had started releasing the G.I. Joe series (and to clarify, this is the Sunbow series which started in 1982)- However, Rhino only got as far as Season 2, Part 1 and thus never completed the series on DVD. In any case, those DVDs are long out of print.
So it'll be awesome to have Shout! Factory releasing G.I. Joe on DVD again! And these guys almost always have some kind of cool bonus features on their DVD sets, so you can look for some really cool stuff for the G.I. Joe DVDs!
See more info at the link.

Woohoo! It looks like the late '80s - early '90s DIC version of the "G.I. Joe" cartoon series is finally coming to DVD!
It seems that Shout! Factory is releasing it- so I'm sure it will be good.
I know some fans don't care much for this series and just look to the Sunbow episodes as the definitive show. I like to include the DIC episodes myself because I remember watching both series as a kid- and though I did like the Sunbow theme song for "G.I. Joe" better ("G.I. Joe- A real American hero! G.I. Joe is there! It's G.I. 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!....")
versus the DIC "G.I. Joe" cartoon theme song ("Got to get tough- YO JOE! Got to get tough- YO JOE!....") - I still like the DIC episodes just as well as the Sunbow episodes. And the DIC theme song is pretty cool too.
Anyway- for those who have been wanting to see these episodes on DVD, it looks like they are being released sometime- hopefully soon- though a release date is not known yet. Check the link for more details.

Oh yes- and considering the date I posted this- I promise you it's not an April Fools' Day joke.

these GI Joe: ARAH sets are useless if you ask me. Episodes are chopped to bits, severly edited, and just a let down. Ill stick to my opriginal air date bootleg set for the real experience. I hate how companies release edited garbage. Release it as intended or dont at all.


However the DIC GI Joe sets seem top notch and to be 100% the original versions!

That's a shame about the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero series from Sunbow. I didn't know they were edited episodes. However, Shout! Factory's release is their second release- they were originally released by Rhino some years ago- I wonder if those episodes are in any better quality. But good to hear that at least the DIC G.I. Joe episodes are unedited.

Unfortunately the shout set is a direct rip of the old rhino release. Same edited episodes.
