Featurette for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra takes a look at the history of the franchise, from toy line and other merchandise to the cartoon series. Special also reveals some of the background on the story.

If you ever loved G.I Joe, then you want to take a couple minutes out of your day to check this out. Toys, Comics, Cartoons… The only thing missing is Sgt. Slaughter. In just over three minutes they manage to run through every incarnation of G.I Joe from the original 12″ figures to the Awesome cartoon most of us grew up with, all the way through the pansy ass Eco- Warriors and the hyper clunky Sigma Six. And oh… ya… They even mention that there’s a movie coming out.
