SUNBOW'S SYNOPSIS
Killer whales attack ships at sea ... lions prowl the oil fields of the Middle East ... swarms of birds and insects swoop down from the skies to attack city streets ... even Junkyard, Mutt’s trusty canine pal, turns vicious, savagely attacking his master! All these creatures are under Cobra’s control, thanks to a device called "Hi-Freak."

OBSERVATIONS
As shown in the image above, the Silver Mirage motorcycle was redesigned slightly and colored green.

The episode was released as Volume 5 in the FHE commercial tape series.

ERRORS
Just as Spirit and Snake Eyes put down their arms, a guard instructs Timber and Freedom to take the Joes to the prison. The sequence should have been the guard's orders, the lowering of arms and the running away to free teammates. Instead, the Joes lower their arms before the guard's orders, effectively ruining the act of being a prisoner in the eyes of the viewer.
