A show which was invented not by environmentalists and politicians as typically thought, but rather corporate polluters and the government to convince children that pollution is the result of a group of dumb, grotesque individual outcasts who do it for no purpose at all, rather than the result of the monetary interests of corporations.
Boy: Those evildoers are releasing pollution into the water. Boy, they had better watch out for Captain Planet.
Man: It's not evildoers, it's the local oil business. And Captain Planet is fictional.

It is ironic that the show, which was supposed to be about saving the environment, is actually sponsored by a few corporations which are responsible for some of the world's pollution. It kinda negates the whole purpose of the show.
Oh shit. The wind blew the plastic wrapper of my sandwich from the table to the ground. Captain Planet is surely going to give me a half-hour lecture about reducing, reusing, and recycling.

A superhero who is made of the five elements: Earth, Wind, Water, Fire, and Heart. These elements are represented by children who run around saving the world, and when in grave danger combine to form Captain Planet.
Kwame: "Earth!"
Wheeler: "Fire!"
Linka: "Wind!"
Gi: "Water!"
Ma-Ti: "Heart!"
All: "Together, we form CAPTAIN PLANET!"
