“Community” Season 5 has a treat for former 1980s cartoon watchers: In the upcoming “G.I. Jeff” episode, the characters become G.I. Joe characters and even includes a PSA at the end. Watch the ridiculous video here.
For this PSA, Britta (as “Buzz Kill”) and Abed (as “Fourth Wall”) teach a couple of kids about the evils of graffiti. Sort of.
In case you’re not familiar with this particular form of “educational” television, many cartoons in the 1980s and 1990s — including “G.I. Joe” — ended their episodes with brief skits like this. Characters from the stories would step out of their world to tell normal kids about what was right and good in this world.
Some of them were almost as funny as this “Community” video.
For example, one time the “Thundercats” warned a couple of youngsters that sheltering from a thunderstorm under a tall tree was a bad idea. The more you know can save your life!
The “G.I. Jeff” episode of “Community” airs Thursday, April 3 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
