Movies You Won’t Believe They Turned into Cartoons

Rambo: The Force of Freedom


The 1980s were a strange time for children’s toys and, by extension, children’s television. Look no further than Rambo: The Force of Freedom, a Saturday morning television program inspired by the very R-rated film series starring Sylvester Stallone.

How does one turn a story about a troubled Vietnam vet dealing with PTSD into a show for children? Have him join a team that is NOT a ripoff of the G.I. Joe, of course! Rambo and the rest of the Force of Freedom battle evil forces across the globe — fighting for peace and helping promote an expansive children’s toy line, each sold separately.
