The 1990s classic environmental cartoon “Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Season One” will be available on DVD for the first time on April 19.
The series follows the Planeteers, a group of chosen kids with rings that represent one special element of nature – Earth, wind, water, fire and heart. When the eco-crime fighting team gets into a bind, they join together their rings to summon Captain Planet himself. Together, they embark on missions to save the world – one tree-cutting, garbage-dumping villain at a time.
Based on an idea by Ted Turner and Barbara Pyle, the show ran from 1990 to 1992, followed by a sequel series, “The New Adventures of Captain Planet.”
Released by Shout! Factory and Cartoon Network Enterprises, the 4-DVD boxed set will be packaged in 100 percent recycled paper. While the DVD’s release date is in conjunction with Earth Day, die-hard fans can pre-order the set now.
Until then, the power is yours!
