These public service announcements were featured at the end of G.I Joe episodes between 1989 and 1991. Each segment closed with the catch phrase "...and knowing is half the battle". I presume the other half of the battle involved taking the advice of cartoon characters named "Mutt", "Ripcord" and "Dial Tone" seriously. They certainly are hilarious and have spawned several parodies over the years, but in my opinion nothing is funnier than the real thing. If you haven't heard them before then prepare yourself for a treat and if you have then get ready for a retro blast from the cartoon past!
Please note - The re-uploaded version now contains 21 PSA's.

I was happy enough with the PSAs the first time around.

Now that you've refreshed the link and added 6 new PSAs, I don't know how I possibly survived this long w/o knowing not to pet 'strange' dogs. Imagine!

I feel safer already:)

Thanks again, Mr. Craig!
