Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Season One - A Review


Captain Planet, he's our HERO... Gonna take pollution down to ZERO! 
If you were a Saturday-morning-cartoons fanatic in the '90s like yours truly, then you know exactly where that line is from: Captain Planet and the Planeteers! It's amazing that after all these years of not hearing the theme song, it all came back to me in a flash. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Captain Planet, he is the world’s first environmentally-conscious superhero, offering kids action-packed adventure and a chance to help save the environment. This ever-changing eco-hero from within our Earth, with the help of five young people from around the globe called Planeteers, fights a never-ending battle against eco-villains out to destroy the world. 

"With our powers combined, we are... CAPTAIN PLANET!" I liked the cartoon when I was a kid, but now watching it as a parent with kids of my own, I am so impressed with the issues they addressed back then -- issues that are still prevalent today, like using reusable grocery bags, pollution in the air and ocean, etc. It was also a great help in explaining to my kids what pollution is and the harmful effects it has on our earth and ourselves. After singing the theme song for 3 days straight, my 5-year old son asked me, "Mom, what's pollution?" He was very interested in learning about pollution and how we can help in its reduction... all from watching a cartoon! All four of my kids love Captain Planet now, and my husband and I are having fun reminiscing about our sweet Saturday morning cartoon traditions growing up, of which Captain Planet was a big part.

Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Season One DVD set features Voice Cast of: David Coburn, LeVar Burton, Joey Dedio, Whoopi Goldberg, Frank Welker, Meg Ryan, Martin Sheen, Kath Soucie, Dean Stockwell, Jeff Goldblum, Sting, and more!  

Help your child aspire to be a Planeteer too, while keeping them entertained and engaged...

  8. Oh goodness... Let's see: Raphael (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) because he was the "rebel," Snake Eyes (G.I. Joe) because he's a ninja, Bedtime Bear (Care Bears) because he was my favorite of the Care Bear plushies we have, and I could go on and on. This is just based on when I was 4 to 7 years old. LoL.
