  • Trivia

    • This is one episode where the eco-villains (including Captain Pollution) were intent on actually "destroying" the Planeteers.

    • Goof: When Captain Pollution lands on the island and meets with Dr. Blight in preparation for the soldiers' attack, Hoggish Greedly (who didn't appear in the two-parter) is briefly seen in the background.

    • After Captain Pollution is defeated by Captain Planet and "returns" his powers, the sphere from which the powers are coming from looks just like the pollution pod that Dr. Blight threw at Captain Planet earlier.

  • Quotes

    • Commander Clash: Wait, soldiers, listen to me! (soldiers stopped) Look around you! Take a good long look! This is the future of the world! If you help monsters like Plunder...
      Looten Plunder: Monsters?
      (soldiers stare at Plunder) Who are you calling monster?
      Commander Clash: You! You and your kind!
      Looten Plunder: Don't listen to him! Money's all that matters. Money and power! (soldiers cheer for Plunder)
      Commander Clash: What good is money in a world destroyed by waste and pollution? Listen to me, until today, I was a lot like you, a soldier paid to do a job without asking questions. What I have learned, there are things more dangerous than missles: there is greed, selfishness, indifference, prejudice. Everything effect that monstrosity stands for. If you join him, THIS is our future. How long can you survive in a world like this? The time to choose is NOW!
      (soldiers drop their weapons)

      Captain Pollution: You are full of hot air, Planet! I'll show you who's boss around here! (Flies)

      Captain Pollution: What are you talking about, fool?!
      Captain Planet: The pure elements of the Earth! I'm gonna give you a taste of every single one!
