My Review of Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Season One
What is it exactly?
From the website . . .
"...Guided by the ancient wisdom of Gaia and armed only with the will to do good with the strength of the Earth itself, five young Planeteers from around the globe fight to protect the planet from those ready to do it harm. Only by working as a team will their individual powers — Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Heart — combine to form the iconic hero known as Captain Planet. Together they will right the wrongs of the Eco-Villains and prevent future crimes against the planet — because an injustice against the Earth is an injustice against us all.

I remember when I was growing up, that I used to LOVE watching Captain Planet. I was really excited to be able to review Season One, because it brought back so many memories! Shout!

I loved going back in time and embracing in those moments in the 1990’s when I sat down and watched Captain Planet. What I liked even more was being able to share those moments with my son, who is now following in my footsteps and watching Captain Planet. I love how the show teaches us that the world should not be taken for granted, and we need to do all we can to protect it!
