Victory at Volcania, Part 1

4th of 19 episodes in DiC season 1. Written by David B. Carren & J. Larry Carroll. First aired October 1, 1990.









Previous episode: Granny Dearest
Next episode: Victory at Volcania, Part 2

As the Joes relax at G.I. Joe's island R&R base and Hawk frets over his impending forced retirement, Cobra attacks by sub. Cobra captures Salvo and Bullhorn and quickly overruns Club Joe. Hawk leads a retreat to a hidden airfield, but Cobra already has knowledge of it and occupies it as the Joes approach. The Joes retreat back into the jungle and take refuge in some ruins before escaping via a sea cave, while Destro puts Salvo and Bullhorn to work laying railroad track at the island's volcano.

The track is used to install space guns mounted on a lava-powered hydraulic elevator. Destro tests the guns by destroying a communications satellite, but Salvo and Bullhorn escape and bring news of Cobra's plans to Hawk's Joes, who have retaken the airfield. As Destro leaves to deal with the Joes, Cobra Commander broadcasts a threat to the world and proves his seriousness by destroying the California River Bridge.
