Happy 20th Birthday, Captain Planet!

On September 15, 2010, in Washington, D. C., by Suzanne

Charles D. Ferguson is the President of the FAS and his blog was originally posted at FAS.

Twenty years ago, Captain Planet—Earth’s greatest champion—burst from the Earth for the first time on television. When it was broadcast during the 1990s, it inspired millions of kids in about 100 countries to protect the earth, to become more energy efficient, and to understand, respect and cherish cultural diversity.  Many of those childrenwho watched this show during the 1990s are now adults. They are proud to call themselves Planeteers and will become thenext generation of leaders who understand the importance and urgency of saving Gaia, the spirit of the Earth.

The Planeteers are mobilizing and later today at 6:15 p.m. many will be flash mobbing in Times Square to bring back Captain Planet.  In the coming days, multiple events are planned. Please see www.captainplanet.me for more details. To quote the famous line from the show, “The power is yours!” to bring back fun and educational programming like Captain Planet, to educate yourselves, friends, and family about how to make the world a safer and a more secure place for all peoples and all nations.

Watch a quick one minute introduction to the main characters of Captain Planet.

For information about the show’s producer Barbara Pyle, a leading environmentalist and filmmaker, please see the Barbara Pyle Foundation Website.

On October 6, FAS will honor Ms. Pyle’s excellent work with the FAS Public Service Award.

Watch Ted Turner talk about creating the show and broadcasting on the Turner network.

I urge you to learn more about Captain Planet and get involved in encouraging TV networks to broadcast this show and others like it.
