Must have been a similar looking series on DVD, as Captain Planet definitely has not been released on DVD in Australia.

Strange that. I can distinctly remember telling myself that Benza would be leaping in joy over this.

Original

Captain Planet.... He's a hero
Gonna take pollution down to zero

My version

Captain Planet.... He's a weirdo
And he's got an IQ of zero

Not that I didn't like the show.....

Man I miss Captain Planet.
What an awesome show. It was on Boomerang a while ago I remember watching an thinking...man the animation is outdated, that and how cheesy it is lol. Also how sad it is that I actually remembered some of the eps...I even remember the whole song (even the opening credits).
Captain Planet he's our hero.
He has a green mullet and wears his underpants on the outside.

This has apparently got legal issues - not that they're trying to release this anyway.

Proof of how outdated it is, from the opening VO:

"From the Soviet Union, Lenka with the power of wind!" Razz

When I was a kid, I didn't much like this show, but I watched it anyway, as it was a cartoon. I do remember like Captain Pollution, and the funky way he talked.

One thing I found puzzling was that when CP was on Boomerang a while back, they sued this REALLY NAFF remix of the opening theme that seemed to wanna be a rap or something. It was friggin horrible, especially compared to the normal opening theme, which is...sort of neat.

Sac, you sure it wasn't the later eps? The batch titled "The New Adventures of Captain Planet"? I seem to recall that having a different opening.

That would be the "Eco-Rap" sung by none other than Fred Schneider of The B-52's.

...incidentally, he also sang the Rocko's Modern Life theme song.

That was one of my favourite shows for AGES. Haven't seen it in years though.

I reckon they need to make a new series of it. New group of Planeteers. Maybe they could get an Australian character this time? Please? That always really annoyed me...

Don't. Seriously. It holds up worse than Thundercats.

The Superdickery forum had a twenty to fifty page thread on a Captain Planet revival we were all working on. It was pretty great.

I remember when Captain Planet owned up Captain Pollution. That was an epic battle.

So Captain Planet is coming to DVD, as of April. I'm going to buy it, despite it not holding up very well, for the lulz. I've also decided it actually does hold up better than Thundercats.

Who knew?

That will never ever happen unfortunately.

So far it's only the first season announced, I think.

It has never even reaired. i doubt there are any masters left and there were very few episodes released on vhs. and really with the lack of presence on the net its barely even a cult hit and as well not have existed.

Widget the World Watcher! Name sounds familiar but can't seem to fully place it. Can't rememberer if it is one of the shows I used to watch. Does anyone know what channel it aired on and approx year?

Captain Planet I loved when I was younger, my sister and I used to pretend that we where the main girls. I would be the Asian girl, my sister was the Russian and then we split up the boys between us. Our little sister (who was only 2 at the time) we used to make the Heart guy with the monkey.
