Captain Planet is one of those shows that makes you think, i was 12 watching this show and i actually learned to protect mother land some way or the other. I noticed how our heroes from each of the continents of our world fought for the protection of our beloved planet everyweek.
Parents couldnt tell you to stop watching "those cartoons" because you could tell them "they teach me to protect the environment" and your mother would have to simply go back to her chores.
An excellent show for the whole family, great animation and great stories. a Must see for all the children n this world.
