It’s amazing to think that it’s been 21 years since Captain Planet and the Planeteers first aired on TV screens around the globe, inspiring the Millennial Generation and becoming pop culture icons instantaneously. The series featured the world’s first eco-superhero, a crystal-skinned man with a famous grassy mullet, called by a group of five young people with elemental powers given by Gaia herself.

September 15th, 2010 was declared ‘Captain Planet Day’ one year ago today in honor of the series milestone 20th anniversary. To celebrate this year’s Captain Planet Day, I’ve sifted through series Co-Creator and Exec. Producer Barbara Pyle’s personal archives of the show’s creation and launch, pulling the best celebrity interviews, media coverage, concept art, and launch party footage to share with you on our YouTube Channel and Captain Planet’s Facebook Page. Check out the clip below for a montage of interviews and press coverage, and keep an eye out for a few of the original voiceovers from before the series’ final cast stepped in!

Today also marks the one year anniversary of the Planeteer Movement’s launch, and get ready for this: In the past year, we’ve gained over 200,000 Facebook Fans, had 19 MILLION individual post views, 85,000 pageviews on CaptainPlanet.me, and launched 43 Planeteer Networks worldwide!! You can launch your own or see if there’s one in your area on our Networks Page. 21 Years, and the Power Is still Ours. Incredible.

That’s not all! There’s a ton of original Launch Party footage from 1990, more clips from the Planeteer Movement, and interviews from around the world on our YouTube page to keep you entertained until next Captain Planet Day! What should we do next year?
