Captain Planet and the Planeteers
– Wikipedia summary of Captain Planet:
“Captain Planet and the Planeteers is an American animated environmentalist television program, based on an idea by Ted Turner and produced by Andy Heyward, Robby London, Barbara Pyle and Nicholas Boxer. The series was developed and co-produced by Turner Program Services and DiC Entertainment and ran new episodes from September 10, 1990 until December 5, 1992. A sequel series, The New Adventures of Captain Planet, ran from three seasons and was produced by Turner Broadcasting and then-corporate sibling Hanna-Barbera Productions. Both programs continue today in syndication.
The program is a form of edutainment, which advocates the United Nations as an organization, and the concepts of globalism, multiculturalism, and environmentalism generally.”
Below is the full ep called: “Tree of Life” , which runs for 23 minutes.
If you don’t have time to watch the whole thing now the Mother Nature Network website has broken up the episode into 4 parts which can be found here.
Additional note about the above: The ScouseVeg website is maintained by a British Expat now living in the USA. The embedded video clips plays here but I’m not sure if it will be blocked in the UK. If the video does not play – please let me know.
