  • Quotes

    • Sgt. Slaughter: We all go home or nobody goes home!

    • Sgt. Slaughter: You're goin' nowhere, space case. You're here 'cause you're an industrial strength foul-up! My job is to whip ya into shape, and I'm talkin' whipped! There are two ways outta my command - on your feet like a man! Or in a ditty bag. An itty, bitty ditty bag. Got it?!
      Falcon: Yes, sir!

  • Notes

    • Originally, Duke was supposed to have died after he got hit by Serpentor's snake, as the animation clearly shows that he stops breathing. With the backlash of Optimus Prime's death in Transformers The Movie, the writers quickly had B.J. Ward [Scarlett], Ed Gilbert [General Hawk] & Buster Jones [Doc] were called back in for new dialogue recording's of the changed lines in post-production to say have their characters say that Duke goes into a coma.

    • Burgess Meredith ironically played Ernie Pyle in the 1945 movie The Story Of G.I. Joe.

    • One of the storyboarded scenes, that quickly died after the storyboard stage, was a "nude scene" involving Zarana at the pond. She would have disrobed and been briefly seen in the buff, Barbie doll style in terms of anatomical correctness.

    • During the Web Of Remembrance flashbacks, the sequence of the Cobra infantry soldiers running on foot, being chased by Joe vehicles, is stock footage taken from The Revenge Of Cobra.

    • Several scenes were storyboarded but never animated. One scene featured recurring character Hector Ramirez reporting from the UN building after the spores are launched into orbit. Another scene featured Jinx with her blindfold on and holding a sword, trying to stop the Thunder Machine from escaping with Serpentor. Falcon sees her and pushes her out of the way. She starts to argue with him but then they notice smoke coming from the stockade. The scene then leads into Falcon running into Hawk.
