Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

i think captain planet and the planeteers is a very good show but its not for kids because its very vilonte theres a gorilla hand that was turned into a ash tray by poachers linkas cousin dies of a drug overdose theres a driveby shootout of a family and a realistic image of a dead kid and theres some Adult jokes and 2 episodes are about drugs and aids with that being said captain planet and the planeteers is not for kids and i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 14

An underappreciate show with plenty of good messages

This was more than an animated series, this is the show that turned me into an environmental advocate. Yes, I know there are some weaknesses, but at least take the message and go with it.

This title has:

Great messages
