That's Entertainment

12th of 19 episodes in DiC season 1. Written by George Caragonne. First aired October 18, 1990.

Previous episode: Night of the Creepers
Next episode: I Found You...Evy

General Hawk and Captain Krimov reminisce over movie star/USO personality Jackie Love as G.I. Joe Headquarters begins guarding a handheld fusion generator known as the MAP. Cobra attacks Headquarters and is easily driven off, but Sgt. Slaughter increases security for weeks, leading to low morale and strained tempers. To let off steam, Hawk invites Jackie Love to entertain the troops, but Cobra intercepts the communication, and Cobra Commander kidnaps Love with the intention of impersonating him in order to steal the device.

The disguised Commander gives a successful performance at Joe HQ, taking the Baroness along in the form of actress Fiona Diamond. She requests a tour from Capt. Krimov and knocks him out to steal the generator. Krimov sounds the alarm, and he and Hawk follow Cobra back to the studio they have taken over. As the real Love and Diamond are about to fed to the sharks, Hawk and Krimov stage a rescue, with a late assist from Sgt. Slaughter, and recover the celebrities and the device. Hawk's momentary confusion over the final fate of Love and Diamond are captured on film for the Joes to enjoy later.
