In Your Local Paper: GI Joe Cartoon Debut
Inspired by the amazing newspaper toy ads that Phillip over at battlegrip.com regularly unearths, I thought I would do a little digging to locate a TV listing circa my favorite cartoon era. Getting more specific, I wondered if I could find a listing for the debut episode of GI Joe: A Real American Hero AKA the MASS Device mini-series. What do you know, I found it in the Sunday, September 11, 1983 issue of the Milwaukee Journal. So be sure to run home after school, or set your Betamax to record channel 18 at 3:30pm Monday.
By the way, if you’re hoping to catch Bugs Bunny & Friends right before GI Joe, it’s been pre-empted by Charmkins. Now you know!
