Cobra CLAWs Are Coming to Town

40th of 55 episodes in Sunbow season 1. Story by Ron and Dann Thomas, Script by Carla and Gerry Conway. First aired November 7, 1985.









Previous episode: Worlds Without End, Part 2
Next episode: Eau de Cobra

As Joes brings in toys collected for charity, Firefly plants its own package in the cargo. With most of the Joe Team on leave, a skeleton crew enjoys a Christmas feast, except for Mutt, who is depressed by the holiday. Mutt witnesses Cobra's bundle of toys breaking open to reveal a miniaturized assault force. They deactivate the defense grid, and Firefly enters to restore the Cobras to normal size. Cobra Commander imprisons the Joes and, with the help of a staged threat video, steals Joe vehicles to attack a nearby city, hoping to frame G.I. Joe for the attack.

The Joes escape as Cobra departs, fighting with Destro for his size-changing gun. The weapon goes off, striking Polly to no apparent effect. But once the Joes have set out in Cobra's vehicles to stop the attack, Polly grows to enormous size. Joe and Cobra fight until Polly arrives, saving Cover Girl's plummeting Rattler and a free-falling Duke, and frightening away Cobra's forces.
