Stop Ruining My Childhood!

GI Joe… And Candy Buttons

March 10, 2022

This week, we revisit the old classic, candy buttons! 

Then, we dig into the history of GI Joe and talk about how this 1964 Hasboro toy became a beloved cartoon hero of the 1980s. Steve revisits his childhood memories of playing with ALL the GI Joe toys, including the coveted 7-foot-long aircraft carrier. And Megan asks Steve about all the things she never understood like, "Do we ever see COBRA Commander's face?" and "Is GI Joe a person or a group of people?"

We also take a look at two reboots of GI Joe from 2005 and 2011 and talk about the changes to both the premise of the show and the animation.
