Captain Planet has only been on the air a few years, and I don't think
any new episodes have been made in a while. The reason Turner keeps
pushing the series is because he created the show himself (in one of
his fits of social-consciousness -- let's hope he remains socially-
unconscious from now on :) ). That's why this show stays on the air
when it should have been canceled a long time ago.
