Season 2 Episode 14


Aired Sunday 5:05 PM Jan 18, 1992 on TBS



  • Trivia

    • When the dam breaks, Kwame, Ma-ti, and Linka run for the Geo-Cruiser to meet Wheeler and Gi to summon Captain Planet. This doesn't make much sense, since in many episodes, the Planeteers would still summon Cap when they were split up, if Ma-ti communicated to them with his ring.

  • Quotes

    • Gi: Skyrunner's in the mine shaft, Cap!
      Captain Planet: That's hot news. But I've got something that's gonna take care of that unpleasant burning sensation.

  • Notes

    • Captain Planet's entrance when summoned: 1st time: light effects. 2nd time: brief lightning effects, followed by the appearance of Cap's glowing globe.

    • Planeteer Alert For This Episode: Reducing the use of Earth's resources reduces the need for mining (especially strip mining) to access these resources.

    • In syndication, this was the 15th episode of the 2nd season following The Fine Print.

    • Starting with this episode, Linka is described in the show's
      opening as coming from Eastern Europe, as the Soviet Union officialy broke up into several different countries on December 25, 1991.
