This episode is an unofficial follow-up to the Animals of Cobra episode that I did for Cobra Convergence 4. This time we explore the animals that came with the American Heroes, G.I. Joe.
It’s that time of year again, the time that Cobra takes over the internet! It’s Cobra Convergence IV, folks.
For my contribution this year, I am talking about the Animals of Cobra. Never ones to settle for the norm, the forces of Cobra had animals within their ranks such as Alligators, Manta Rays, and Giant Scorpions. These animals are a far departure than the cute and cuddly critters the Joe soldiers called friends.

Before they were the powerhouse that they are today, Marvel was a struggling company that was trying to find some way to stay afloat. Marvel took a lot of chances trying to find a way to become finally successful again. One of those chances was to buy an animation production company and start producing animation of their own.
That was the start of Marvel Productions, a great animation company that ran from 1981 to 1993. Under the Marvel Productions banner a lot of great cartoons were created based on some of the 80s biggest icons.
Here is a quick history of the cartoons they made through out the 80s. Maybe one day I’ll discuss the ups and downs of Marvel and what led them to be bought by Disney, but this episode is all about the cartoons we grew up with. I hope you enjoy!
