When US network Nickelodeon was fairly new, they were basically “the international children’s network”, so of course a Japanese anime based on a French children’s book fit right in.

“A song you liked when you were younger”
Child of the 80’s here. That means I grew up with a lot of
toy commercials variable-quality cartoons with catchy theme songs.
I’m not sure what it was about this particular one. Maybe just the shock of how different the way it starts is compared to the TV version made a first impression that stuck for a while, or maybe the fact that the two essentially dueling songs are as different as they are appealed to me. (Case in point.)
Regardless of why, when I was a kid I liked this song a lot more than I do now. (Much like GI Joe itself.)
It’s still the best version of the GI Joe theme, though.

Incidentally, this whole opening sequence has nothing to do with anything else in the rest of the movie.
Even though I only ever heard the instrumental version of this song as a kid, I have so much nostalgia for it. I liked Grendizer (or Grandizer as I knew it then) more than Voltron despite having seen a lot less of it.
