Nightmare Assault

24th of 30 episodes in Sunbow season 2. Written by Marv Wolfman. First aired October 30, 1986.









Previous episode: Ninja Holiday
Next episode: Joe's Night Out

Lifeline has a nightmare involving an attack from a giant cobra. He confides in Low-Light, who has has nightmares every night of his life. Meanwhile, Cobra has been giving nightmares to the entire Joe Team to demoralize them. One mission's resemblance to a dream of Hawk's causes him to momentarily freeze up and give overcautious orders.

The nightmares worsen and the Joes try to avoid sleep, making them weak and irritable. Low-Light's recurring nightmare of his father's mockery ends with him taking control and winning. As he relates his dream, the Joes realize the nightmares must be caused by Cobra. Mainframe and Lifeline create a shared dream for all the affected Joes, allowing Low-Light to enter and save the day. Following the dream, the Joes permit Low-Light his first peaceful night's sleep.
