** This dates back from the 60's, when Palitoy licensed the original G.I. Joe figure as ''ActionMan''. Two decades later, ''Action Force'' was launched as an independent extension of the Action Man line. This changed with Hasbro's acquisition of the Palitoy assets, after which the Joes were introduced with European birthplaces.

Added DiffLines:

** Zartan sort of is a gender-flipped one to Scarlett, what with both being intermediate-level commanders in their teams and masters of disguise hailing from redhead badass families with a militarily unusual preference for archery over riflemanship. In one episode, they even showed some [[WorthyOpponent mutual respect]] for each other.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: How much this is in play varies to a considerable extent between the episodes, but generally speaking, GI Joe evidences considerably relaxed grooming and uniform standards, as well as a remarkably fluid chain of command, among other things. Likewise, both they and Cobra have women in combat roles and treat this as unproblematic, whereas in real life this is still very controversial today (and was [[StayInTheKitchen an absolute no-no]] in the 1980s, when the series was made). Much of this is arguably justified, since GI Joe is a small force of picked men for special tasks, and so not as much subject to the details of ordinary military discipline as the rank-and-file (just as with real special forces). And Cobra, of course, is a private military organization, so they can make their own rules however they like them.

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Cobra's purpose is to impose a worldwide fascist dictatorship, and they are explicitly identified as "ruthless" by the opening narration. By contrast, GI Joe defends the whole world against their oppression.

''G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero'' is the first ''Franchise/GIJoe cartoon'', part of the franchise of the same name. It premiered with a FiveEpisodePilot in 1983. The writing and distribution of the series was handled by both Marvel Productions and Sunbow Productions. Animation was done by ToeiAnimation[[note]]with feeder studios Creator/SeiYoung and Creator/DaiWon[[/note]] and occasionally Creator/{{AKOM}} (both uncredited, as was normal for Marvel[=/=]Sunbow shows of that time). The show ran for two whole seasons along with three other five episode mini-series until it was cancelled in 1986 after 95 episodes.

* ArtEvolution: Some Sunbow episode art was improved due to being made at the same time as the animated movie. The [=DiC=] series had a more vibrant and slightly more stylized art style than the Sunbow series. Many characters were also given somewhat drastic redesigns. Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes, and General Hawk are among the characters most notably different from how they appeared in the Sunbow series.
