In a time on the internet before memes, there was Fenslerfilm. Like My Way Entertainment, Eric Fensler took footage from a classic animated series and dubbed it to create short, entertaining parodies. It’s hard to believe that nearly 20 years have passed since the first Fenslerfilm G.I. Joe PSA hit the internet. So what better way to celebrate this pre-meme icon than with merchandise?
Super7 is honoring Eric Fensler’s creations with a collection of G.I. Joe merchandise than includes, ReAction figures, pins, hats, shirts, and skateboards. Each product references a specific PSA, including Body Massage, Help Computer, and Mr. LaFitte.

Body massage machine GO! Roadblock is on the scene and ready to educate the youth about the dangers of downed power lines. This 3.75” articulated ReAction figure of Roadblock is inspired by the “Body Massage” PSA parody and includes a pole claw accessory. You know adding this Roadblock ReAction figure to your collection will be more fun than a body massage, and knowing is half the battle!
Which is more dangerous, an unfamiliar dog or low bandwidth? When you’re Mutt, who’s trying to become the first human computer, low bandwidth is the real enemy! This 3.75” articulated ReAction figure of Mutt is inspired by the “I’m a Computer!” PSA parody and includes a threatening dog accessory.
Real heroes share their hard-won knowledge and Roadblock is paying it forward by emphasizing the importance of a good body massage! This 100% cotton G.I. Joe “Body Massage” PSA t-shirt features a glow-in-the-dark electricity-effect behind a heroically posed Roadblock. Almost as durable as the Electrical Safety Expert & Combat Masseur himself, this machine-washable, black t-shirt is available in sizes S-3X.
The Super7 x StrangeLove G.I. Joe “Don’t Judge” skate deck is inspired by the words of Gung-Ho from a PSA at the end of an episode of the animated show, when a group of boys don’t want to let a girl skate with them. With Gung Ho’s encouragement, “Don’t judge people until you give them a chance,” the boys relent as the girl shows them what’s up. This skate deck measures 8.5” x 32” and features familiar Gung-Ho imagery along with his quote, while the top of the board features a design that replicates the girl’s skateboard in the PSA.
It’s never easy being a pioneer, and for G.I. Joe’s Mutt and his quest to become the first human computer, something as simple as too many downloads taking up all the bandwidth can be a nearly insurmountable obstacle! This G.I. Joe “I’m a Computer” PSA enamel pin measures 1.5” x .5” and lets everyone know that you are an ally to K9 Unit Handler & I.T. Bandwidth Specialist, Mutt, and his tireless pursuit of sufficient bandwidth to become the first human computer!
