some surprisingly cool visuals from the very first 1983 g.i. joe episode (hasbro posted some on YT)

the sign in the first one (a really attractive bg painting imo) charmingly says US MILITALY. bet that was never remotely decipherable back during the original broadcasts

the last is a decently executed 3D terrain flyover. the episode starts with similar runway landing shots, much simpler, where it looks like the runway could be CG. if i had to bet i'd say it's not tho since my understanding is that the first anime to use CG was 1983's Golgo 13 movie

(golgo trailer has boobs)
