Captain Planet and the blog about it!

Captain Planet is a show about a environmentalist super hero who can only be summoned by five kids with five special rings!



And each ring had its own power. There was earth (which made the earth rise up and hit things) fire (which shot fire out of the ring like a flame thrower) water (which moved water so waves could rise up and splash things, yeah I thought it should blast out of the ring like a hose but anyway!) wind (which caused tornados) and heart (which allowed the wearer of the ring to understand things telepathically.)

I always thought Heart didn't belong with the other four forces of nature. Heart as a thing we all have, pumps blood! It doesn't have telepathic abilities! And heart in the abstract way is about love and compassion not telepathy and communication! That's the brains department. The fifth element of nature shouldn't be heart it should be brain!

But then again watching the show its obvious the creative staff didn't know what a brain is.

  2. I can only remember being suckered into watching a small handful of Captain Planet episodes.

    Not even sure how this terrible cartoon stayed on the air.

  3. I remember enjoying captain planet as a youngin'. Unfortunately as an adult it's kind of disappointing to examine. I don't really know what they were going for with the "heart as an element" bit either.

  11. Captain Planet is weak against any pollutant like smoke and toxic, while Captain Pollution can fly on fresh air and isn't affected by clean sunlight. His enemy have far less weakness compared to him!

    Also, Heart is a stupid and pretty useless power.

  20. dude I loved this show! The little kid who had the crappy heart ring also had a kickass monkey sidekick to offset how lame his power was.
