Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! Guffaws!
Any couch-potato familiar with Captain Planet and the Planeteers, TBS magnate Ted Turner’s animated environmental series, will probably enjoy actor Don Cheadle’s homage to the 1990’s eco-relic. Warning: The video includes coarse language, so it may not be suitable for work…or home, for that matter. But, hey, Captain Planet has had a lot to stew over since the series originally aired.
In July, the Cartoon Network announced that a live-action film about the green super-hero (not the more-than-slightly-demented Cheadle version, though) is in the works.
