“Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!”
This is something that my brother and I would go around the house yelling as our imaginations allowed us to be apart of Captain Planet and his Planeteers. Holding our rings high in the air above our heads pledging to keep those eco-villains from polluting our Earth!
Having the joy of receiving this review and sharing this with my own children made me so happy. It was great teaching my kids to preserve the Earth’s resources in a super hero way! Their school is doing a great job of teaching them to Reduce-Reuse-Recycle and these are very important lessons for our young generations. I had the joy and entertainment of Captain Planet and the Planeteers to teach me the importance of becoming eco-friendly as a child and now so will they. This is a perfect way to share Earth Month (April) with your own children.

As my kids go through each episode words of Captain Planet emerge from their mouths, “The Power is yours!” and “Go Planet!” Captain Planet and the Planeteers work together to prevent the eco-villains from looting and polluting the Earth’s resources. Once the problem is under control, Captain Planet returns to the Earth, leaving this message for the Planeteers everywhere– “The power is yours!” Each episode ends with a 30 second tag including tips on how people can be a part of the solution. A learning experience packed with fun that every child should have.
