Ferret

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Ferrets were never animated.

Headcanon

Ferrets were the original heavy armor officers of Destro's Iron Grenadiers, beginning their service in spring 1985, with their appearance represented by Version 1. They were essentially the IG equivalent of Cobra's HISS Drivers, whereas the lower-ranking Wild Boars had a role similar to that of Motor Vipers.

FERRETS are the backbone of DESTRO'S armored assault squadrons. Their battle vehicles, called D.E.M.O.N.'s, are expected to spearhead long range mechanized attacks to neutralize enemy strong points, as well as to capture and hold landing zones for airborne insertions. Since the design priorities for the D.E.M.O.N. key on speed, range, and offensive firepower, much was sacrificed in the area of crew protection, comfort, and safety.
"Ferrets are chosen and trained based on their doggedly positive attitude. This is a vital attribute for them. When a squadron of D.E.M.O.N.'s attack in formation at full throttle, with all weapons systems firing, they are virtually unstoppable! Break-up the formation, slow the pace of the attack, or counterattack from behind, and infantrymen with hand-held rocket-launchers can turn the D.E.M.O.N.'s into burning hulks! Their motto should be, 'Don't look back!'"
Toy Notes: Item #6033. The prototype shown in the commercial had 1987 Cobra Commander's head.
