    Growing up I never knew that these existed. I am very happy to see that they have put them out.

    I could be wrong, but I think that the DIC series never was shown in Canada.

    I remember getting the Revenge of the Pharaohs episode on a tape with the Rapidfire figure, who was a recolored neon green Super Trooper. They showed the drug special on YTV too, but I'm pretty sure most of the series wasn't broadcast here.

    I remember the 5 parter being okay and the rest of the episodes being dull. It did have the benefit of having the original voice cast though. This is where the costumes got weird and the colors went neon on the uniforms. It did have a really cool opening song though.

    I do remember seeing the five episode introductory miniseries - Operation: Dragonfire - air on ABC in Montreal when I was a kid. The writing really took a step down from the DIC series. They turned Cobra Commander into a humanoid serpent and merged Serpentor with an iguana.

    Yeah, I do remember the drug ep for sure. I can't even remember what channel these would be on.
