For a pirate's entrance, the dark clouds are quite appropriate. However, the appearance of flames coming out of a fan on a vehicle called an "Air Skiff" is unusual.
Like the animation sequence in the Wolverine commercial, cels from the original source, issue #60 (right), were flipped in the commercial (left).
The other half of the sequence features new scenes and begins with the a shot of the G.I.Joe Low Crawl Vehicle (LCV) Recon Sled.
Although the animators were not allowed to show a character injured from an explosion in the television series, the last shot in this commercial animation sequence features a much more intense because the character is mere inches away from the explosion.
