I still love it, especially the first two mini-series. I'm sure there is nostalgia tied into it but I honestly think it's the best cartoon of all the 80's toons. I really like Transformers too but it doesn't touch GI Joe in the cartoon department. I still watch at least 1 episode a week.

G.I.Joe and G1 Transformers Sunbow Animation are two of my favorite Cartoon Series of the 80's...they makeup #1,#2 of my Top 10 growing up toons, along with Robotech/which later led me to Macross etc., Bless Shout! Factory for rereleasing the Complete Sets along with Max Headroom....

I never really like the cartoon as a kid. I watched it, but I always thought it was stupid compared to the comic. I probably enjoy it more now just for the nostalgic factor.
Thanks Zarana for the sig pic!

i think i liked it for the cool toys when i was little. now its nostalgia, my son, and i think ARAH is comedy. there is some good writing, corny, but a good kind of corny.

I still like it for the nostalgia. It's not high drama or hyper energy of anime. It's rather quaint. Meaning it hasn't aged well. It's a throwback to another time. Other classic toons like Bugs Bunny seem to be more watchable and relatable.
I still want it on dvd someday. I've had a taste of reliving old shows from the past and leaving an awful taste in your mouth. I bought the old Kung Fu tv series dvds for real cheap. I thought this would be great to finally watch it through fresh eyes as an adult. As a kid, I didn't understand the drama. As an adult it's awful drama from a bygone time. The only thing watchable is the pilot episode. Try watching Happy Days or Three's Company. I'm sure I'll have the same awful feeling with Joe.

I like them even more now, but for different reasons. The writing does have it's moments of genius along with moments of silliness. The 80's era cartoon has an artistic quality that is unique to it's era, and every bit as important.
