Captivating (VHS) Cover: El Dorado

I have fond memories of bygone days of VHS randomness at Mom & Pop video stores and Blockbuster, when you could find both the latest releases as well as archaic giant clamshell boxes. Seems like GI Joe was everpresent, particularly the early Sunbow releases. The DIC show wasn’t as plentiful, and it was only in the 2000s that I spotted them, usually for sale rather than rental.

The box art was striking, if not entirely accurate to the animation. I assume this is meant to be Grunt on the cover here, as he’s the focus of this episode.  The helmet looks more like Cloudburst than Grunt.
