· US second season opening sequence
· "Arise, Serpentor, Arise!"

· Ron Friedman was credited for writing the script, however, this is historically inaccurate. Buzz Dixon created the story and wrote the script
· The miniseries spans two sides and the sound is in mono
· The art on the front of the box is a recreation of the 1986 toy catalog artwork, which is shown below:

Strangely, some changes were made for the video's artwork; for example, Beach Head is wearing a purple uniform and Low-Light is seen in a tan jacket
· The artwork on the front cover also appears on the following videos: FHE - 27352, Polyband - 95801 and Video One (partially used)
· On the back of the box, Repeater, Spearhead and Skidmark are seen riding the G.I.Joe Desert Fox, however, neither the characters nor the vehicle appear in the miniseries

My thanks to Kevin Jones for helping me identify the characters and vehicle on the back cover
