Your Powers Combined: The Story Of Captain Planet

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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.

Review

Captain Planet is as entertaining and inspiring today as it was 20 years ago. --Wall Street Journal, April 19th 2011

The first episode of "The Adventures of Captain Planet," subtitled "A Hero For Earth," was released in 1990. I have been a planeteer ever since. I even purchased a VHS copy of "A Hero For Earth" and "Mission To Save Earth" just because I love this show show much!

Now, ALL of Season One of "The Adventures of Captain Planet" are in one DVD box set. You get 4 DVD's. You get 26 action packed episodes. Let me explain what "The Adventures of Captain Planet" is all about. It is a show made for kids, so it is G rated. You have 5 Planeteers that control 5 different powers (Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Heart). When they (the Planeteers) combine their powers, they summon Captain Planet. It is a show meant to teach about saving the Earth. That is the main message of the show: saving the planet because, as Captain Planet always says, "The Power is Yours," and it is!

Now, here are the episodes you get on each disc. Please keep in mind that not all episodes of "The Adventures of Captain Planet" have been issued on DVD. This is only Season One, so if you do not see a show title that you want, it is probably in another season that is yet to be released.

Disc 1

1. A Hero For Earth (Pilot/First Episode)
2. Last of Her Kind
3. The Dead Seas
4. Polluting By Computer
5. Population Bomb
6. Ozone Hole
7. Beast Of The Temple

Disc 2

1. Rain Of Terror
2. Volcano's Wrath
3. Skumm Lord
4. Deadly Ransom
5. Tree Of Life (I highly recommend this episode!)
6. A World Below Us
7. The Littlest Planeteer

Disc 3

1. The Conqueror
2. The Ultimate Pollution (what could it be?)
3. Meltdown Syndrome
4. Don't Drink The Water (why not?)
5. Heat Wave
6. Plunder Dam
7.

Visionary then and valid now more than ever. As the first and only eco superhero for the Planet, its great to see entertainment with a timely conscience is back. It should be on television today and perhaps it is somewhere in Mozambique, at 2 a.m. Finally children will begin to understand what is happening to planet earth and some simple things they can do about it. It's kind've amazing the first episode, from twenty years ago, is about an OIL SPILL.

Very few of the views given negative "criticism" have actually done so in a productive manner. Complaining about the case has absolutely nothing to do with the series, and complaining about a personal offence to an episode doesn't give an accurate argument covering the whole series.

The series is an environmentalist cartoon about five young people given great gifts to save the world from the careless and destructive actions of Eco-Villans intent on destroying the earth through pollution.

That is what it is about. If you have a complaint it should be about quality (which is excellent), sound (also brilliant, though there is no CC), or problems with the series as a whole, such as editing, voice acting, colouring, etc. Stop spamming this title with your false accounts or personal environmental views. People reading these reviews don't care about anything other than the product they are buying.

The packaging IS made of 100% recycled paper. That was stated in the item description, so why people act shocked when they receive a cardboard case covering housing their DVD's escapes me.

All in all, this is an amazing show! Still relevant (possibly even more so) for today's environmental problems, this show will rekindle the kid inside of you. I have a two year old daughter that absolutely LOVES this show.

Oh my gosh! FINALLY this release comes out. My most memorable moments growing up were watching this show! The messages I learned through Captain Planet and the Planeteers have never left me- even 20 years later. It was because of this show that I persued a career in environmentalism!! I can only hope that the children of this next, up- coming generation will be as positively influenced as I was.
More children should identify with nature, teamwork, and come together as the original Planeteers did to make a word wide difference.

Being a 26 year old Planeteer myself, I could not be more excited about this!
The Power is Yours!

This show was awesome when we were kids! Can't wait for the series to finally come out on DVD!

I remember watching as a kid, and now when I think about it, it really did have some impact on the way I see things.. And the messages still hold true! More shows need to have a moral compass like this one.

Oh, the fond memories of watching this! I believe it came on before I went to the bus stop for school. I'm so glad it is out on DVD and I own it now! I watched the first episode so far and fell back in love with it. Or, remembered how much I loved and still love this show! And, the message that comes with it! I didn't even realize it back then and I was an older kid (middle school age). To me, it was just a cartoon to watch and enjoy. I am definitely satisfied with this product! Also, now that I read/saw Whoopi Goldberg was Gaia's voice, I can't go back to innocently thinking of just Gaia. Now, I picture Whoopi! Ha. I love how the message continued onto the package wrapping. Eco-Friendly! Except, the "shrink wrap" isn't... I can't wait to save up for the other seasons!
