Episode Summary

EDIT
Greenhouse Planet
AIRED:
When Dr. Blight develops a new rocket fuel to assist in NASA'S planned mission to Venus, she comes under the watchful eye of the Planeteers, who know the fuel will only hasten the degeneration of the ozone layer. But Blight is able to maintain her cover when the President of the United States himself arrives to oversee production of the fuel. Due to security, the Planeteers cannot get near the President without causing concern, so they cause a distraction to get Ma-Ti and Kwame inside the compound. As they warn the President, Blight and MAL become wise to the Planeteers' presence and launches the shuttle prematurely, with Kwame, Ma-Ti, and the President inside. They summon Captain Planet, whose powers are later drained by the craft's fuel. When he tries to return the Planeteers' ring powers to them, Kwame and Ma-ti are out of Earth's orbit, forcing him to reform with only Earth and Heart powers. With his powers significantly reduced, Cap must now use his wits to find a way to stop Blight, while Kwame and Ma-Ti try to save themselves and the President from crash landing on Venus.moreless

    • NOTES (4)

      • Captain Planet's entrance when summoned:: Flashing light effects appearing from a spinning ring of the Planeteers' powers.

      • Linka now wears a dark blue shirt, Kwame wears a red shirt, and Ma-ti no longer wears his tribal necklaces.

      • The opening spiel changes Linka's location to Eastern Europe.

      • This episode marks the only time in the series in which Captain Planet is not in complete form. This resulted when in full form, he attempted to return his powers to the rings, but with Kwame and Ma-Ti trapped on the runaway spaceship and out of Earth's orbit, only three of Cap's powers returned to their respective rings, forcing Planet to reform with only Earth and Heart powers. In this form, he's improperly colored and his abilities were severely diminished. With no wind power, he could not fly and his strength was also reduced as he needed a crowbar to free the other Planeteers from their prison cell.
