Burgess Meredith, who voiced Golobulus, played the role of wartime correspondent Ernie Pyle in the film The Story of G.I. Joe, set during World War II in Italy. Created at the height of the G.I. Joe craze in the s, G.I. Joe: The Movie was intended as a theatrical release to be closely followed by The Transformers: The Movie.
