A G.I. Joe: Arise, Serpentorrise!
USA, 1986  TV  

TV-series G.I. Joe


After yet another defeat inflicted to the criminal organization by G.I. Joe, Cobra's leader of research and interrogations, Dr. Mindbender, comes with a new plan to collect the genetic material of great warriors and military leaders from the past to create a composite clone that would be the perfect new and poweful leader for Cobra. To set this scheme into motion, among others DNA from the mummy of an ancient Egyptian scholar is used as part of the genome of the composite clone Serpentor. G.I. Joe has very little time to learn of this plot before Cobra becomes that much more a dire threat to the world.

The first two animated G.I. Joe mini-series "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" and "G.I. Joe: The Revenge of Cobra", based on the comic book series from Marvel Comics, ran in syndication from 1985 to 1986. It was followed by a regular series in 1986-1987, of which the first five episodes were later reissued as mini-series "G.I. Joe: The Pyramid of Darkness" and the second five episodes as "the mini-series Arise, Serpentor, Arise!".
