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

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.

The box is has nice pictures on it of the Planeteers and Captain Planet. Also, many movie stars lend their voices to this DVD box set. A few include Whoopie Goldburg as Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, Sting as Zarm (Gaia's evil counterpart), Tim Curry as MAL, LeVar Burton (from "Reading Rainbow") as Kwame (the Earth powered Planeteer), Meg Ryan as Dr. Blight (an evil scientist that loves pollution), and David Coburn as Captain Planet among others.
I highly recommend purchasing this for your family. Ever since I watched this show when I was young, it changed my life. I have been a planeteer ever since. I pick up trash when I see it. I ride my bicycle to save gasoline so as to not hurt the Ozone layer. I turn off my lights and turn off the water when not in use. I mean, the list goes on and on. So, please remember this: "The Power is Yours" to purchase this DVD. It is a steal, a bargain, at less than $20.00 So, grab your power ring, point it at the sky and summon Captain Planet today! Order your copy now! Be a planeteer.

Captain Planet follows the adventures of five youths called the Planeteers, each one of a different ethnicity and from a different continent and each one possessing five enchanted rings containing the elemental powers of earth, fire, wind, water and heart. Gaia, the Earth goddess has summoned them to counter attack all the pollution and destruction plaguing earth. When combined, they can summon Captain Planet, a super being with earthly powers and abilities. Captain Planet and the Planeteers use their powers to save the environment and match wits with the nasty eco-villains who want to not just to destroy the world, but make wealth out of their own evil doings.
Captain Planet is a fun show that can help teach both kids and adults the importance of helping the environment. I myself do my part in helping the environment and anyone else can to. We can be Planeteers to.
Here in season 1, we'll witness the Planeteers first receiving their powers, the first appearance of the eco-villains, learn a few things about helping the environment and more.
I was very happy with this and I was very happy with Shout Factory to release this out on DVD. I look forward to season 2.

Looked like a budget job, what happened?..all that folded floppy card could have come out of any printer! But the artwork was right on par and the 4 disks looked professional.
It's fantasy with a huge eco-twist, characters designed for blokes and gals...you might find yourself skipping some ep's to look for your favourite villains. Nothing has been left out - glowy magic ring effects, DIC's detailed character costumes, snappy dialogue etc...all the things I remember from the original run. Captain Planet himself is great to watch (I don't know what he's made of - diamond?). He narrates a little morale at the end of each episode (that's just before the cheesy end theme song) finishing it with 'the power is yours', meaning the viewer.
It's pretty funky and helps the viewer come away from the show feeling great. The sfx are nifty too - love the rings' magic sounds.
