There were twenty-five of these miniature Public Service Announcement
s actually made, and they were tacked on to the end of each episode
seemingly at random. All of them are available on the GI Joe
Here are some of the better quotes, chosen mostly for their ironic hilarity:
At even the hint of a thunderstorm, get right out of the water.
Remember, never get in anything that could close up and trap you. In reference to a refrigerator.
Open and close your legs like a scissor. Keep up a steady rhythm. Now cup your hands downward and move them in a figure eight motion. Never play around water alone.
Remember, a firefighter's job is to fight fires- not answer false alarms.
Pinch your nose closed and lean forward. If it doesn't stop in 5 minutes, pack your nose with gauze and pinch it closed for ten more minutes. If its still bleeding, then see a doctor. Every seven year old knows right where the gauze is!
Never take medicine without a grown up present. You could do more harm then good. If you can, wait for your parents. Or if it's serious, ask a neighbor for help.
There's nothing chicken about being smart. If you stop and think there's almost always a better way.
Well, just don't do what a stranger says. Check it out with an adult you know. Remember, a stranger can mean danger.
A candy bar might give you a quick boost of energy, but after 20 minutes, you'll feel run down. So let's eat smart!
Remember, don't play around electric wires or you could be playing with fire. Excuse me?
All paints, and especially spray paints, have poisonous gases in 'em. If you breath too much you can get very sick. Always read the label carefully and check for warnings before you start any job.
Remember, if your clothes catch on fire, wrap yourself in a rug or blanket and roll on the ground to smother the flames.
