I've been watching the latest DVD set (Season 2 I believe it is called), and I guess I didn't remember how much the lineups really changed starting with this season. You really don't see much of the "original" cartoon Joes, instead the lineup mainly consists of:
Hawk, Sgt. Slaughter, Beachhead, Low Light, Lifeline, Sci Fi, Leatherneck, Wet Suit, Mainframe, and Dial Tone
You still see some of the previous Joes (primarily Flint and Lady Jaye so far), but really not much of Duke, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Shipwreck, Bazooka, Dusty, etc. from what I've watched so far. I remember seeing these episodes as a kid as well, but I'm more familiar with the Season 1 (or on DVD, 1.1/1.2/1.3) I think. Still good, and I like the new Joes (Beachhead, Sci Fi, and Wet Suit were always favorites)...but I guess I just forgot what a shift it was. The same could be said for Cobra, as there doesn't seem to be as much Cobra Commander, Destro, Baroness, Storm Shadow or even the Crimson Twins....and more Serpentor, Dr. Mindbender, and the Dreadnoks.
