Captain Planet and the Planeteers

Earth, Fire, Water, Wind, Heart... Beer!

For this episode, Morgan teaches Tom all about the history of the classic '90s cartoon series, environmental heroes and pop culture icons, Captain Planet and the Planeteers.

From its incredible theme tune, and insanely impressive voice cast roster, to how it genuinely changed the world for the better, we delve into a true '90s legend.

We also discuss:

  • The oft-forgotten theme tune rap
  • How were the Planeteers selected by Captain Planet?
  • Why Heart was the one power you didn't want at school
  • The excellence of Kath Soucie
  • Scooby Doo was in the same universe??
  • Why Tom Cruse wasn't good enough for Captain Planet
  • Is The Return of Jafar superior to Aladdin?
  • Why you don't hire the bloke from the B-52s to rescue your franchise

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
