    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 worked. BIG TIME. 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 save.

    Our world is in peril, Gaia, the spirit of the earth, can no longer stand the terrible destruction plaguing our planet, she sends five magic rings to five special young people:

    Kwame: From Africa, with the power of Earth..

    From North America, Wheeler, with the power of Fire

    From the Soviet Union, Linka, with the Power of the Wind

    From Asia, Gi, with the power of the Water

    And from South America, Ma-Ti, with the power of Heart

    When the five powers combine, they summon earth's greatest champion, CAPTAIN PLANET!

    GO PLANET!!!!








    By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet

    Captain Planet, He's A Hero

    Gonna Take Pollution Down To Zero

    He's Our Powers Magnified

    And He's Fighting On The Planet's Side

    Captain Planet

    He's a Hero

    Gonna Take Pollution Down To Zero

    Gonna Help Him Pull Asunder

    Bad Guys Who Like to Loot and Plunder


    We're the Planeteers

    You Can Be One Too

    'Cause Saving Our Planet Is The Thing To Do

    Looting And Polluting Is Not The Way!

    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
