G.I. Joe: Team Ninja

gijoe blind masterHasbro’s G.I. Joe toy line has had some famous real-life characters join the team, like WWF wrestler Sgt. Slaughter and NFL Chicago Bear lineman William “The Fridge” Perry, and now, you can add Wu-Tang Clan member RZA to the list.  Maybe it was just me, I found it hilarious that RZA was playing the Blind Master in G.I. Joe:  Retaliation.  I was cracking up and enjoyed the stiff dialogue he had in the movie.  What I liked about the movie was all the ninja stuff which hearkens back to Larry Hama’s old Marvel Comics G.I. Joe universe.

Making A List: Top 40 Cartoon Songs

Art by J. Scott Campbell

I have to say some of the coolest pop songs in 1980s and early 1990s were from cartoon TV shows.  Every once in awhile, I can be humming along these cartoon theme songs.  Thanks to YouTube now, everybody gets a chance to relive the experience and do some karaoke cartoon show tunes.  So, here’s my Top 40 list of the best cartoon theme songs from 1980s thru the early 1990s.

1.  Saber Rider & The Star Sheriffs – There’s no better chessy glamrock song than Saber Rider & The Star Sheriffs.

2. Jem & The Holograms was truly outrageous.

3. Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers – “no guts, no glory!”  The theme song makes me want to do some electric air guitar.
