This isn't the Captain Planet intro you're hoping for. No the song isn't there, because we all know that ("Captain Planet, he's a hero... gonna take pollution down to zero..."). Instead, let's revisit our planeteers:
Personal favorites include Minka from the then-existent Soviet Union, and the South American chick with the power of "heart" who I coincidentally portrayed for Halloween my senior year of college. It was a weaker gathering, with just three planeteers (we did get the official t-shirts), and a female Captain Planet (although her royal blue spandex and Captain-like presence made up for the gender replacement).
Saving the environment is sooooo IN right now. Do we have Captain Planet to thank? Maybe... maybe.
