Captain Planet Theme Song

As you read this post, I hope you and your family are well! ❤

This week, I wanted to share another song that I hope will put a smile on your face during this difficult time. ❤ (If you haven’t seen the other posts I have made to help boost your spirits during the COVID-19 pandemic, please check out “Don’t Worry Be Happy,”  “Handwashing Songs,” “Everything’s Not Awesome.” “Quarantine Song,” and “Reflection.”)

In last week’s post, “Reflection,” I shared that I somehow missed seeing the animated movie Mulan when I was a kid, and this week I wanted to write about a show that I somehow missed seeing when I was kid. 😀

Over the years, my friends have made references to the Captain Planet and the Planeteers TV show. Whenever they had done this, I never got the references because I had never heard of or seen the show! 😉 They would ask me how I had never heard of the show, but the truth is, I just don’t know! 😀

If you also don’t know much about the show, the TV show ran from 1990 to 1996, and it was about a group of kids from around the world that worked with the superhero Captain Planet to help save the world from villains who were trying to hurt the earth.

Since Earth Day was yesterday (Happy Belated Earth Day! ❤ ), I thought it would be appropriate to share a fun song this week that related to Earth Day. What better song than Captain Planet‘s theme song?

Lyrics:

Earth!
Fire!
Wind!
Water!
Heart!
GO PLANET!
By your powers combined I am Captain Planet!
Captain Planet, he’s our hero,
Gonna take pollution down to zero,
He’s our powers magnified,
And he’s fighting on the planet’s side.

Captain Planet, he’s our hero,
Gonna take pollution down to zero,
Gonna help him put asunder,
Bad guys who like to loot and plunder “You’ll pay for this Captain Planet!”

(chanting)
We’re the planeteers,
You can be one too!
‘Cause saving our planet is the thing to do,
Looting and polluting is not the way,
Hear what Captain Planet has to say:

“THE POWER IS YOURS!!”

I have to confess. I really enjoyed this song so much that I’ve listened to it several times now! 😀

I also finally checked out an episode of this show, so now I can tell my friends that I get their references. 😛

Since the world is chaotic right now, due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), I imagine that many of you were probably unable to do something special for Earth Day. However, I know that some people still tried their best to help the planet. I was touched when I saw a man with his young daughter collecting garbage that had been thrown into/had blown into a forest in my neighborhood. Thank you to people like that who did something for the earth yesterday! ❤

Not being able to really go anywhere does make it difficult to celebrate Earth Day. In the past, I have enjoyed helping clean up forests by working with others to pull out Garlic Mustard, the invasive species. It’s all over in Madison. 😦

Since I didn’t go out this Earth Day, I decided to take some simple actions at home, like reducing the amount of water and electricity I used.

Did you do anything to celebrate Earth Day, even if it was from inside your home? 😉

I hope you enjoyed the Captain Planet theme song! It definitely boosted my spirits and made me excited about protecting the planet! 😀

Wishing you well! ❤
