    Captain Planet and the Planeteers

    Captain Planet and the Planeteers

    TBS (ended 1996)
    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.moreless

    TBS (ended 2003)
    Sony Pictures Television's weekly look at the world of strange and fascinating phenomena kicks into high gear this summer with all-new episodes of Ripley's Believe it or Not!, hosted by actor Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) and field correspondent, Kelly Packard (Baywatch). Ripley's Believe it or Not! airs Wednesdays at 9PM (ET), 10PM (PT) on TBS Superstation. Ripley's Believe it or Not! takes viewers through a world of amazing feats, facts, and artefacts that stretch the limits of imagination. This season the series expands on that mission to include opening each show with an event performed before a studio audience at such diverse locations as the Hollywood Boulevard, the Las Vegas Strip or stadiums across the country. The show also features such regular elements as "Spot the Not," a weekly trivia segment in which viewers are challenged to pick the claim that isn't real and special "Ripley's Record" commemoration for people who break a World Record while appearing on the show. Ripley's Believe it or Not! is produced by Sony Pictures Television, with Dan Jbara serving as executive producer. The series is produced in association with Dean Cain's production company, Angry Dragon Entertainment. No matter where you are or what's your age- Ripley's will show you things you've never imagined could be true.moreless
