The Youth Blast ended on a high note. First of all was the opportunity to meet the creator of Captain Planet (a children´s cartoon character who saves the environment) and of course the captain himself. “Wow… Is he really here?”, was all Ally (Australia) could say, while she jumped a few times. Captain Planet then led everyone in the Youth Blast in dancing the Macarena. If you want an insight to the joy, just watch the video.

The nature of trends is to die out—especially on television. So last Earth Day, I was amazed to see Captain Planet, the star of the 1990s TV series “Captain Planet and the Planeteers,” trending worldwide on Twitter. Don’t get me wrong—I love Cap. He was one of my favorite “stars” to work with when I was vice president of PR at Turner Broadcasting. After all, he had great hair (how could you not love that green mullet?), a catchy theme song, and a message you could really get behind—and not just because it was my job.

Starting in 2010, Pyle helped create the Planeteer Movement, a site where fans of the show – AKA “Planeteers” – could interact and network together to continue the mission of saving the environment. With the network growing each day, Pyle is now offering a special prize to the 500,000th “Planeteer” to join the Captain Planet Facebook page. (As of this writing, the page was less than 100 “likes” away from reaching the mark!)
While on tour promoting the Planeteer Movement, Barbara Pyle took time to answer questions about Captain Planet, the show’s legacy and who she would cast to star in a live-action Captain Planet motion picture.

It was the television show that not only entertained but educated, it captivated our imaginations and asked to look at how we lived our lives, it was one of the most highly watched television shows back in its day and it has become the stuff of legends – we are in fact talking about the kids cartoon series, Captain Planet.

The iMatter march is a global youth march to let the world know that climate change is a moral issue — not a political or financial one. By marching in the streets, the youth of this world will let the leaders know that we matter and we need our whole society to reduce emissions and live as if our future matters!
