I still argue, that in large, more people saw the cartoon than the comic book growing up. At least how they got their "Joe history" to begin with. Sure, you can branch out later, and the comics DO have better stories, but that's usually the case with a comic-versus-cartoon (better stories in the comics).
It probably doesn't apply to everyone on a fan-site-dedicated-to-everything-Joe, but I got my start on the free TV show and the toys, not a $1+/issue comic book, and I know a lot of my friends at work who are close to my age can't even tell you that there was a comic book, but they remember the cartoon, and they actually have bought a few of the figures after seeing mine, due to nostalgia from the cartoon.
I think the strictly-comic-colored-figures, in general, are pretty garish and lazily painted. The ones I refer to are the neon ones (Duke, CC, the blue Snake Eyes, and the purple Destro...) but I thought the Wild Bill in the CP was more cartoon-colored, not comic-book-colored? In his case, as cartoon-accurate as he is, I still prefer the realistic colored one now.
As an adult, I do prefer the more realistic army colors that look like they'd be an actual fighting unit, although I admit I am still fond of some of the goofier-dressed guys like Flash, Bazooka and Spirit, probably due to the cartoon.
I REALLY want a cartoon-accurate Flint. His black shirt just seems silly to me, and I hate the Tiger Force deco.
Cartoon Lady Jaye is perhaps one of my top 5 favorite characters from the line.
Although I prefer the 5-pack trooper, in all black and blue, versus the cartoon silliness with white highlights and the yellow crap in the CPs.
I guess it all depends on the figure, but I am a big fan of the DVD packs, in general.
