Getting Over the ’80s: G.I. Joe’s “There’s No Place Like Springfield”

In what may or may not become a new feature, we take an in-depth look back at a cartoon episode from the 1980s that helped shape my fragile psyche.

This time out: A two-part G.I. Joe written by the great Steve Gerber that pays hommage to Patrick McGoohan’s THE PRISONER.  And there’s embedded video to let you watch the actual episode!

Read, or the synthoids will get you.
