Raise the Flagg!

20th of 30 episodes in Sunbow season 2. Written by David Carren. First aired October 20, 1986.









Previous episode: My Favorite Things
Next episode: G.I. Joe and the Golden Fleece

Hawk leads the Joes in an attack on a Cobra-run oil rig and discovers they were trying to salvage the antimatter pod aboard the sunken USS Flagg and Cobra helicarrier. The Joes take over the salvage operation, and their sub is attacked by Zartan, Zandar, and Zarana. They all board the wreckage and are taken prisoner by a crazed Cobra cook who went down with the ships.

As Hawk and Adm. Ledeger work to raise the craft and fend off Cobra attacks on the surface, the cook puts his captives to work harvesting kelp. A bump on the head causes the cook to regain his sanity, and they hook the antimatter pod to the helicarrier's rotors and rise to the surface. Cobra is driven off one last time, and the salvage teams are treated for the bends after coming to the surface so fast.
