Your acting couldn't get you onto a soap opera.
  -- The Baroness (after Zartan informs Cobra Commander of the extra charge for his acting services)
Home Toy Commercial Animation G.I.Joe Skystorm, X-Wing & Mean Dog (1988)

If you watch the animation sequence frame by frame with your multimedia software, you can see the blades of the G.I.Joe X-wing appear and disappear as the vehicle takes off from the ground.
The next scene brings up the oldest of questions: does art mimic life or does life mimic art? In the live-action and animated portions of the commercial, the X-Wing toy threads its way through a canyon before launching into the sky again.
Like the Cobra Maggot animation scene, the Mean Dog separates into three smaller components and the separation in the animation sequence does not parallel the live-action shots.
