Captain Planet and the Planeteers

Show Summary

Captain Planet was created by billionaire Ted Turner in the early 90's to spread awareness of the environmental damage done to earth every year, at the same time providing the action and thrills that a Saturday morning cartoon needs to be a hit.

This special effort caught on.  The show ran for six long successful years, with three seasons divided between DIC animation, and Hanna-Barbera, and today is still repeated all over the globe it was created to help preserve the environment. 

The Planeteers represent the different cultures of the world working together to help the Earth.  Each Planeteer was given a power ring representing an element of the Earth.  When trouble becomes too much to handle, they combine the powers of these rings to summon Captain Planet, the embodiment of teamwork.

Together, with the help of Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, the Planeteers travel the world to help out wherever they can.
