G.I. Joe – Episode 103

Sound Boy makes its triumphant return! Since it’s nearly our 4th birthday it’s fitting we talk about the Cartoon arcade game that puts cake on full display – Konami’s G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.

What is the devastating truth behind the origin of this game? Is this the first arcade game based on a doll? How many times is “Yo Joe!” uttered in this episode (seriously we’ll send some prizes to whomever counts it up)? Is this the most carnivore-friendly episode we’ve ever released?

We discuss some of our favorite game shows, Cajun cooking, the dark web, and answer the question, “what cartoon deserved an arcade game that never got one?”
