Captain Planet


Recommended Posts

So earlier today i was chatting with someone on irc and we began to talk about the cartoons we used to watch. I will refrain from listing them as that would date me (Tail spin, TMNT, original Power Rangers, Duck Tails...). One of the cartoons we began to talk about was Captain Planet. If you dont remember Captain Planet, or do not know who he is, this may not be the topic for you.

Well... As we talked about this "super hero" (who arguably was a terrible hero, as his five teenage helpers with magic rings always had to come to his aid and save him). Regardless of his inability to perform daunting tasks, i began to think about Captain Planet in a different light.

First allow us to read the opening song.






"Go Planet!"

"By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!"

Captain Planet, he's our hero

Gonna take pollution down to zero

He's our powers magnified

And he's fighting on the planet's side

Captain Planet, he's our hero

Gonna take pollution down to zero

Gonna help him put asunder

Bad guys who like to loot and plunder

"You'll pay for this Captain Planet!"

We're the Planeteers

You can be one too

'Cause saving our planet is the thing to do!

Looting and polluting is not the way

Hear what Captain Planet has to say!

"The Power is Yours!"

Now, if you look back at all the things he did, the people he battled against... Entrepreneurs arguably. Every episode he would fight against a "BAD" guy. This guy was "BAD" because he did something that harmed the environment like run a power plant, mine, sewage plant, ect.

On a side note, i would like to know what Captain Planet thinks about Google. I can only imagine the amount of energy Google uses. That energy comes from a plant, which in some way or another greatly harms the environment. Who invented the internet? Who ever did is a terrible person.

Politics aside and back on Captain Planet. Mind you, in my child eyes he is/was a hero. until i started thinking... he was, like i said always fighting against mines, power plants, and sewage plants. He was destroying pubic utilities. In short Captain Planet was less like


and more like


Thought i would share my opinion of the terrorist formally known as Captain Planet
