    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!!!!

    THE POWER IS YOURS!

    Earth!

    Fire!

    Wind!

    Water!

    Heart!

    GO PLANET

    By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet

    Captain Planet, He's A Hero

    Gonna Take Pollution Down To Zero

    And He's Fighting On The Planet's Side

    Captain Planet

    TBS (ended 1995)
    Two Stupid Dogs follows the lives of two dogs, the overly excited Little Dog(the dachshund) and easy-paced Big Dog(Brad Garrett from "Til Death" and "Everybody Loves Raymond")-the sheepdog. These crazy canines don't know how to fit in the world, and they definitely don't have any know-how. They often find themselves in commonplace situations (going to the drive-in, walking through the mall, working on the farm), some not so common situations (stuck on a space shuttle, a contestant on a game show, getting mistaken for the prime minister), and even in some familiar situations (Little Red Riding Hood, Noah's Ark, and Hansel and Gretel). But no matter the situation, their stupidity usually leads them to calamitous results. The show also featured various returning characters. Hollywood was a big burly man who is always saying "Well isn't that cute, but it's wrong!". Red as the little girl from the Red Riding Hood story on her way to granny's house. Cubby is the nerdy guy who is very passionate about what ever occupation he works at. And finally Kenny, the neurotic school child who's afraid of everything and is always nervous. Each episode included two 10 minute episodes of 2 Stupid Dogs and one episode of Secret Squirrel shown between the two. 2 Stupid Dogs first aired in September of 1993 and last aired in January of 1995. 2 STUPID DOGS and all related characters and elements are trademarks of Hanna-Barbera. 2 STUPID DOGS is now airing Monday-Friday at 7:30am and a repeat airing at 5:50pm on BOOMERANG (Channel 297 - DirecTV). There are also airings on Saturday and Sunday at 5:30pm that are different from the episodes aired during the week. Start times on Saturdays sometimes vary by 5 to 10 minutes.moreless

    WCW Thunder is a wrestling show produced by W.C.W. It featured wrestlers such as the nWo, Goldberg, etc. When Eric Bischoff and co. decided that the viewers needed another night of wrestling they added Thunder to their programming. The show started off with great ratings, often surpassing WWE programming. By late 1999/2000, as ratings dropped and storylines were becoming less original, WCW Thunder seemed to be a lesser-type show. In 2001, along with WCW Monday Nitro and all other WCW programs, it was canceled and bought out by WWE programming.moreless

    B't X is the story of one young man's battle against insurmountable odds. When Teppei's brother (a brilliant robotics scientist) is kidnapped, he follows the kidnappers to find out that they belong to a secret organization called the Machine Empire! He teams up with a B't named X, a living robotic flying horse. Together they strive to get to the center of the Machine Empire where Teppei's brother Kotaro is being held prisoner!

    B't X (pronounced Beat X) began as a manga created by Masami Kurumada, and was adapted to anime by Tokyo Movie Shinsha as a 25 episode TV series which followed the manga storyline pretty closely. It was broadcasted on Japan's TBS station from April 6th to September 21st, 1996.

    It was exported to several other countries, and spawned a line of videos and toys. Unfortunately the series wasn't as popular as anticipated, but it was popular enough to allow for a second season, in the form of an OVA series called B't X Neo. Neo picks up right where the storyline left off. The first episode of Neo went on sale January 21st, 1998.moreless

You have been warned!.

The Ping Pong Club follows their silly escapades as they struggle to keep their clubroom intact, deal with crazy teachers, and their pretty but bossy student manager, Kyoko. Also known as: IKE!

    Three Goddesses, Urd, Skuld, and Belldandy, came down to Earth to live with Keiichi, an average college student. While Keiichi is away, the goddeses shrink themselves to the size of dolls, and have many adventures. Their adventures often involve a resident rat named Gan-chan. Urd and Skuld help Gan-chan find a girlfriend, lose weight, assist the local rat community, and a bunch of other silly and funny adventures, often parodying popular American and Asian movies. Some episodes occur in pairs, and others just end mysteriously. This is a spinoff of the popular manga series Oh My Goddess (or Ah! My Goddess) by Kosuke Fujishima, and forms of the mini-goddess adventures can be found on four-panel comic strips. This mini-series (sic) has 48 episodes but each episode is only about 5 minutes long (7 minutes if you include the credits).
