After reading the article I have to say the one that really blew me away was The Lion King. That's about as blatant as it gets right there!

That Lion King crap is one of the main reasons I HATE Disney. I remember when Entertainment Tonight ran a story about the whole controversy, and Disney responded with something like, " When you base a story in that type of environment, you have to understand there will be similarities..."
It is ironic Cracked is running this story.

Disney is notorious to changing classic stories to titles that suit their style. Anyways, Disney movies suck now a days because they don't have an imagination of their own...

It was a well-known fact that Cobra had roots from Hydra, being that they stemmed from Marvel. I remembered a preview comic that even missprinted Cobra with Hydra.

Hama has said himself that G.I.Joe came for his pitch, Fury Force, but as for the Cobra name, he said he tossed it out there like, "Call the bad guys, I dunno, something like Cobra." He didn't mean for it to stick, but Hasbro liked it.
Looking for at reasonable prices:
25th Defense of Cobra Island 7-pack, PoC City Strike Destro, Ren Storm Shadow
