Captain Planet saves the (Earth) Day
The environment might not be in the best shape ever, but with folks like Captain Planet around, there’s reason to hope for the best! With that in mind, Cartoon Network Enterprises and Shout! Factory will bring the Captain Planet animated series home to DVD this April 19th, just in time for the Earth Day holiday. The 4-DVD box set, titled Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Season One, includes every episode from the first season – all 26 – in addition to some environmentally sound bonus content. Heck, even the casing is eco-friendly – the packaging is made of 100% recycled paper.
Just as celebrities come out in support of Green efforts now (check out Gisele’s work!) the Captain Planet toon featured a number of celebrity voice actors, including James Coburn, Tim Curry, LeVar Burton, Frank Welker, Meg Ryan, Martin Sheen, Dean Stockwell, Jeff Goldblum, Sting, and Whoopi Goldberg as Gaia, the spirit of Mother Earth.
