* HeyItsThatVoice: Chris Latta voices both Cobra Commander and Starscream, and exactly the same way, other than Cobra Commander [[SnakeTalk hissing]] after an "s" or sometimes a "c". Other than that, they are the ssssame. (This later led to a semi-cameo in the ''Transformers'' episode "Only Human", one of the most solid links between the two franchises.)
** In ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'', Creator/CharlieAdler does Cobra Commander (and he also did Starscream, the the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' film series).
*** Nor are they the only ones to voice both Starscream and Cobra Commander, Creator/MichaelDobson voiced [[Anime/TransformersArmada The]] [[Anime/TransformersEnergon Unicron]] [[Anime/TransformersCybertron Trilogy]]'s Starscream and Cobra Commander in the ''Spy Troops'' and ''Venom VS. Valor'' movies. However, Creator/MarcThompson (Cobra Commander in ''[[WesternAnimation/GIJoeSigma6 Sigma 6]]''), Creator/TomKenny (Starscream in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''), Creator/SteveBlum (Starscream in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'') Creator/SamRiegel (Starscream in ''VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron''), and [=Doug Parker=] (Starscream in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'') avert the trend.
** Burgess Meredith did the voice for Golobulus in the animated movie.
** VoiceActors in the original series include Creator/MichaelBell, Creator/FrankWelker, Creator/RobPaulsen, Creator/PeterCullen and Creator/PatFraley. In the 1991 series, Creator/MauriceLaMarche played Destro.
** The DIC series had Creator/ScottMcNeil use his [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Rattrap]]/[[Anime/GundamWing Duo Maxwell]] voice for Freefall and Lt. Falcon.

** Plans were well underway for [[Film/{{Rocky}} Rocky Balboa]] to become a trainer for the team, following in the footsteps of Wrestling/SgtSlaughter and the toy-only [[UsefulNotes/NationalFootballLeague Refrigerator Perry]], with an action figure well under development, a profile listed in the second issue of Marvel's ''G.I. Joe Order of Battle'', and even an EvilCounterpart named "Big Boa". However, Hasbro wasn't able to secure the rights to use ''Creator/SylvesterStallone''[='s=] likeness before Coleco stepped in and launched a toyline for ''WesternAnimation/RamboTheForceOfFreedom'', so the Rocky plan was scrapped, and Marvel ran retractions in the remaining ''Order of Battle'' issues. Big Boa remained, though.

** The basic story premise of the 1980s G.I. Joe was originally an idea for a MarvelComics sequel series for ''[[ComicBook/NickFury Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D]]'' by Larry Hama called ''Fury Force'' where Fury would assemble an elite commando unit for S.H.I.E.L.D.. Marvel wasn't interested in that version, but when Hasbro approached the company about the revived ''G.I. Joe'', they decided that a modified version Hama's proposal would work for them.
