SUNBOW'S SYNOPSIS
Tokyo is the site of a world economic conference - and Cobraís latest target for chaos. Rather than a direct assault, Cobra Commander decides to let Mother Nature do his dirty work, with a little help from Scarp Iron. A series of explosives are planted up and down the Japanese islands, in a pattern calculated to trigger a gigantic earthquake, powerful enough to dump the Japanese capital into the sea. Quick Kick and Bazooka lead the team on a desperate search to find the hidden explosives before itís too late.

OBSERVATIONS
Since Grunt and Clutch appear outside the conference building, the show occurs before the two-part episode "Worlds Without End."

Before Alfred Hitchcock presented some of his finest productions, he would step into an outline of himself and wittily talk about the feature. Quick Kick, the Joes' film fan, mimics the technique before introducing the recruits to his bomb theater.

Judging from the two shots, Tako has one tough breast for a martial artist (Matthew Pak's 3 3/4" G.I.Joe Collector Guide - Volume Two: The Television Episodes).

The episode was the third of three shows released on volume 12 of the FHE series.
