    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!!!!
