What happens in this weeks episode of Captain Planet:
In this episode of Captain Planet and the Planeteers, Dr. Blight builds a Global Warming generator that runs on coal, wood and oil to generate toxic CO2 gas. Dr. Blights plan is to erect a forcefield dome around Hope Island; burn fossil fuel, pump the exhaust into the dome and then deliver her final blow – a carefully wrapped present for Gaia & the Planeteers.
We have multiple questions:
1. Why not just kill the planeteers with Carbon Monoxide poisoning?
2. Why not just set up a mobile power supply; to keep the forcefield up forever (they can’t leave)?
3. Where did Dr. Blight get that awesome captains hat and why does it suit her so well?
Find out the answer to these questions; and more, in this weeks podcast recap of Captain Planet S01E26 ‘Heat Wave’.
In this weeks episode: In this episode of Captain Planet and the Planeteers, Wheeler continues his journey forward through time; seeking out the remaining Planeteers for the sole purpose of being lectured and made to feel bad for rejecting his calling. Some could draw parallels between this story and Oedipus’s rejection of his fate; but not us, we just see Gaia (a God who let the world get destroyed because she was sleeping) giving Wheeler an extra hard time about not wanting to be a Planeteer. Lighten up Gaia geez!
Also this episode Ma Ti has grown up into a bum and that is hilarious beyond all measure to Anthony.
Will Wheeler realize his mistake and rejoin the Planeteers or will Ma Ti be a bum forever? Find out in this weeks podcast as we recap Captain Planet and the Planeteers S01E25 – Two Futures Part Two.

The planeteers try to stop them and in the conflict; Wheeler & Dr. Blight become trapped in a radioactive cave in. With Captain Planet unable to break through the ice; the only mode of escape for Wheeler is through the time portal. Dr. Blight, like Eden’s serpent, makes Wheeler an offer to good to refuse. She will send Wheeler back to the moment when he first accepted his Planeteer ring, so he can stop his past self….saving his life but potentially dooming Earth’s future.
What does Wheeler do? Does he accept and what happens to earth if he isn’t a Planeteer? Find out by listening or this week’s Tales From The Twists recapping Captain Planet and the Planeteers S01E24 ‘Two Futures: Part One’ .
