United We Stand

1st of 19 episodes in DiC season 1. Written by Tony Zalewski. First aired September 25, 1990.









Preceded by: DiC Season 1 Opening Sequence
Next episode: Revenge of the Pharaohs

As the Joes seek out a Cobra lab hidden in the jungle, the party is attacked by Gnawgahyde and Metal-Head. Pathfinder and Ambush track the Cobra agents to the lab. Because Ambush runs off before he and Pathfinder can settle on a plan, the two end up planting explosives at both ends of the facility and bringing it down on top of themselves. They are rescued, but Cobra Commander douses Salvo with a behavior-control gas as he escapes.

When Cobra Commander threatens to launch a roomful of rockets carrying the gas, Grid-Iron places Joe Headquarters on lockdown, but Ambush and Pathfinder escape disguised as nurses and infiltrate the base holding Cobra's rockets. They discover Cobra has only one rocket duplicated with mirrors, so the Joes launch all their forces and attack. Inside Cobra's base, Ambush and Pathfinder make it past the brainwashed Salvo, and the other Joes begin storming the compound. Cobra Commander unleashes the gas on the Joes, but not before Ambush and Pathfinder reach the command center. A poor shot from Metal-Head destroys the behavior control box, and the Joes force the Commander to release an antidote. Yet Cobra Commander escapes anyway as Ambush and Pathfinder fight over who should stop him.
