Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Wet Down was never animated.

Headcanon

Born July 5, 1964. Wet Down joined the Joe Team in July 1991, replacing Torpedo, who had been seriously injured the previous month in the Joes' first encounter with the revived Cobra forces. Wet Down's appearance is represented by Version 1, and he was still a member of the team after Torpedo returned to duty.

Adventure is nothing new to Wet Down. Growing up near the naval installation at Norfolk, Virginia, Wet Down often tried to sneak on the base just to get a better look at the ships. Immediately after high school graduation - still wearing his cap and gown - Wet Down rushed to the recruitment office and signed on the dotted line before the recruiter even finished his spiel. Boot camp was a day at the beach for Wet Down. He excelled in everything he did and graduated with top honors. He sailed through the BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL program) to become the youngest S.E.A.L. in the Navy. That's when the G.I. Joe team took notice and assigned him to head amphibious assault operations. Here's a guy who just can't wait to get his feet wet, again and again. Unfortunately for him, his enthusiasm for seaborne attack procedures is not shared by his land-lubber team mates.
Variations: The US flag was on the figure's left or right arm.
