Rein-Toon-Ation: GI Joe Extreme (1995)

GI Joe returned in 1995, this time as a weekly series that aired on Fridays in most markets, as opposed to landing a Saturday morning berth. Gunther-Wahl Productions produced this series, in conjunction with Sunbow. Co-executive producer Lee Gunther had left Marvel Productions to form his own company, which was modestly successful during this period.

The series encompasses 26 episodes, or two seasons of a weekly series. Naturally, Hasbro produced new toys and commissioned this series to help sell the new action figures and accessories. A year earlier, Sunbow had produced a 1-shot pilot, Sgt. Savage & The Screaming Eagles, which didn't sell, and the characters were incorporated into this series.

Here's the open:

Rating: None. Never saw the show.
