I just watched the first installment of Arise Serpentor Arise with my 2 1/2 year old son yesterday. I'm desperately trying to ween the kid off of Dora. If I hear "Swiper no Swiping" a few more times I might go off the deep end. He seemed to like it better than Ben 10 or Bakugan.
I love Joes. They are delicious.

I love the sunbow cartoons. I got the vhs videos off of Ebay about 9yrs ago. I'm 31 and I watch them every once in awhile. Hardest part is my son watches it and wants the figures bad...haha. reminds me of the good old days.

Still a joe series fan. Was happy 10 yrs ago when Cartoon Network had it on Toonami on Saturday nights. Would either stay home and watch or pre-record on vcr while I was out at work or clubbing.

Love the cartoon. Second only to the comic. It's crazy how much of the dialogue I remember. I'll be watching an episode and I can finish somebody's sentence. And I haven't seen it in 25 years. Weird. My son is liking it. He's 4 and he really likes "the one with the cubes," Pyramid of Darkness.

I always take the "aged well" comments to mean that people expect animation to be the same as it was then, not happening. I think its just fine, corny in a few spots (like when the BAT hd the granade and the screan said "GET RID OF IT!!!!") but many times those moments are funny if you aren't looking at it as a "HARD HITTING MILITARY DRAMA!!!" which is the other thing I think causes people to look down on it. The Toon is not Black Hawk Down, its a cartoon for children from a time that cartoons were still under some very strict rules. But its still fun with plenty of adventure elements and a touch of comedy to lighten the mood.
Sorry everything can't be grim and gritty but some things shouldn't be.

I think the sunbow toon is still good for a laugh every once in a while when I'm feeling a bit nostalgic.

I think the best part of the Sunbow toon is the humor.
To me, it's really very funny and I still enjoy watching it once in a while.

I'd rather they'd bring back the commercials. Bring back the mobile Command Center and the Rolling Thunder!

I love it mainly for the nostalgia, if it wasn't for that I don't think I could watch it.

As the recent DVD's were coming out I bought each one of them and watched from beginning to end each day.
I know one of the reasons I love it so much is nostalgia, but I do think there is more there than just looking back to my childhood.
I love the ridiculous, over the top plots in pretty much all of the episodes. For example, in Cobra C.L.A.W.S. are Coming to Town, there are so many ridiculous, over complicated layers to Cobra Commander's plot to get into the Joe base.
You have to love that!
