If you ever watched the G.I. Joe cartoons when they were on TV, you probably remember that after each episode, there was a lesson to be learned. Perhaps it was their way of easing the minds of concerned parents that thought the show might be somehow inspiring their children to take over the world or become deadly assassins.
No matter what the kids had done, rather than beating the hell out of them like any decent human being would do, the Joes always just calmly explained to them how dangerous their antics would be. And by the end of the public service announcement, everything would be OK, because now the kids knew better. "...and knowing is half the battle!"
For those of you that don't know about it, you can now get the G.I. Joe movie on DVD. And on that DVD is an added bonus: EVERY SINGLE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT THEY EVER AIRED! Hell, I'd buy the DVD if that's ALL it had, but it's also got the movie. Speaking of which, is it me, or is the best thing about that movie the opening sequence where they're battling on the Statue of Liberty with that great song, "Crashing through the sky, comes a fearful cry... COBRA. (Cobraaaaaaaaaaaaa!) COBRA. (Cobraaaaaaaaaaaaa!)..." ? I know I can't be alone in thinking this, but that's to be discussed another time.
Anyway, I recently found out that there were a lot of Public Service Announcements that were never aired. I really don't understand why, because, I've seen every one of them and they all make perfect sense to me. I guess some of the censors didn't approve of them? Who knows. So for the first time ever, I am unveiling these Lost G.I. Joe Public Service Announcements to you. I'm sure you'll learn a lesson or two:
So there you have it. I hope you've all learned some valuable lessons today. I can't believe that the censors would stop these things from being aired on TV. Think of how many kids out there didn't get to learn these valuable lessons all because some snooty censor didn't think it was worth airing!
Well, while you digest these new lessons you've learned, I suggest buying the Special Edition G.I. Joe movie on dvd. In the meantime, I'll work on finding some more of these Lost Public Service Announcements. Believe me, there's a WHOLE BUNCH of them out there.
So now you know... and knowing is half the battle!
