As John J. Rambo may or may not have shed his last blood on cinema screens, perhaps it’s a good time to remember him in all his glory when he had been pardoned by the president and was free to hang out with his pals like Turbo and Touchdown, fighting mostly non-lethal battles with the mercenaries, bikers and cyborgs of the S.A.V.A.G.E. terrorist organization. That’s why I watched and wrote about “First Strike,” the first episode of the 1986 cartoon series Rambo: The Force of Freedom.
MAY THE FORCE OF FREEDOM BE WITH YOU

I like how Rambo doesn’t wear a shirt in the movies because he keeps losing it but he doesn’t wear a shirt in the cartoon because that’s his uniform. It’d be like if they made a DIE HARD cartoon and McClane didn’t even own a pair of shoes.
