Captain Planet and the Planeteers
is an animated show created to make environmental
issues understandable, yet fun, for young people. This innovative series spanned 113
episodes and inspired and empowered a generation of children to take action to reduce the
impact humanity has on the Earth. For many of these youngsters, it was their first step in
building environmental literacy.
In 1989, Ted Turner and Barbara Pyle co-created Captain Planet and the Planeteers
. She led
the production team and brought in her colleague, Nick Boxer, to executive produce the show
with her. Captain Planet and the Planeteers
premiered in September 1990 on TBS and was
syndicated in over 220 markets throughout the United States and in over 100 countries
worldwide. The series enjoyed both popular success and critical acclaim and was ranked
No. 1 in Nielsen ratings five consecutive years in syndicated Animated Children's Series.
