The show's first season was finally released on DVD (in the US) on April 19th 2011, just in time for Earth Day. The packaging was, unsurprisingly, made from 100% earth-friendly recycled paper. In July 2011, Creator/CartoonNetwork announced that a live-action film adaptation of the show was in the works. In 2016 it was announced that Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio would produce and star, with Creator/GlenPowell also on board. 2017 saw the Captain and Kwame making a [[{{Crossover}} guest appearance]] on Cartoon Network's ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'', with David Coburn and [=LeVar=] Burton reprising their roles.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Throughout the first 3 DiC seasons, characters never really changed or seemed to learn much. The villains remained villains and even Hoggish Greedly didn't learn squat after his own son almost died because of his actions. The later Hanna-Barbera seasons changed things greatly, allowing Don Porkaloin (Greedly's grandfather and former gangster turned nature-loving philanthropist, prior mentioned in a flashback episode but finally confirmed to have been real in a later appearance), Rigger and Sly Sludge to wise up and turn good and even Wheeler seemed to improve his attitude some.

The brainchild of Barbara Pyle and Ted Turner (though most of the actual development work on the show was done by Creator/{{DiC}} producers Phil Harnage and Nicholas Boxer, as well as Pyle herself), ''Captain Planet and the Planeteers'' was an attempt to provide a show which would entertain younger viewers, while simultaneously educating them about taking care of the environment.

''Captain Planet and the Planeteers'' (1990 to 1996) underwent several small revisions over the course of its run -- it was renamed ''The New Adventures of Captain Planet'' during its 1993 to 1996 run, which coincided with a change in production companies (from [=DiC=] to Turner-owned Creator/HannaBarbera -- but the tone of the show always focused on the environment, often with AnAesop about the environment [[note]] though other topics like violence or AIDS received their Aesops as well[[/note]] near the close of each episode. Prevalent in the show's theme was the concept of personal responsibility: Captain Planet's {{Catchphrase}} was "The power is ''yours!''"
