Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!
Who remembers watching Captain Planet and the Planeteers growing up? I certainly do!
Captain Planet is an eco-hero from within our Earth. He fights a never ending battle against eco-villains with the help of five young people from around the globe (the Planeteers). These eco-villains are out to destroy the world through looting and polluting the Earth’s resources. Through the guidance of Gaia, the Spirit of the Earth, the Planeteers are always there to fight against villains such as Sly Sludge and Dr. Blight. When the situation becomes too tough for the Planeteers to handle, they combine their powers to summon Captain Planet. Once the situation is under control, Captain Planet returns to the Earth with a message: “The Power is yours!”
This popular 1990’s televistion series is making it’s way back into homes across the nation just in time for an Earth Day celebration. I was given the opportunity to watch Season One on DVD with my children before it’s released in stores on April 19th. I have to tell you, my kids LOVE this show! My oldest likes their powers and how the Planeteers make Captain Planet come out and fight the bad guys.
From a mom’s perspective: I love sharing programs with my children that I grew up watching. One of my favorite parts of the program is that although Captain Planet is defeating the villains, there is no excessive violence like most of today’s programs contain. The plot keeps my kids interested and learning about protecting our Earth while remaining a “clean” show. Additionally, each episode ends with tips on how people can be part of the solution. The tips make for a great family discussion on how we can protect our planet.
We have enjoyed watching Seaon One as a family and hope your family will enjoy it as well!
