It was a staple of the early 1990s, and now you’ll finally be able to revisit Captain Planet and the Planeteers in full. Just, you know, fair warning that your mileage may vary.
The series has never been available digitally, and only the first season was ever actually released on DVD. But that all changes now. /Film reports every season and episode of Captain Planet will land on iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation Store and the Xbox Store on April 10. Seasons will cost between $9.99-$14.99 each. Sadly, you can’t just binge-watch the whole thing on Netflix. At least, not yet.
The series aired in various forms from 1990 through 1996, and focused on a team of heroes who try to stop environmental disasters. When they can’t handle it themselves, they use their magic rings to summon the superhero Captain Planet. The show was pure cheese, but it usually had a pretty good message about recycling and taking care of the environment. It was also pretty much the most 1990s thing you’ve ever seen, and it is glorious in that respect.
The voice cast was bonkers, including LeVar Burton, Whoopi Goldberg, and Louis Gossett Jr. They’ve also featured guests such as Jeff Goldblum, Martin Sheen, Sting, Meg Ryan and a whole lot more over the years.
Is this a show you’ve been dying to revisit?
