Captain Planet nears 500,000 Facebook fans
Captain Planet, the world’s first eco-superhero and star of the award-winning 1990s television series, “Captain Planet and the Planeteers,” celebrated the imminent social media milestone of 500,000 fans on Facebook recently. Hundreds of thousands of Captain Planet fans worldwide have joined forces in the new “Planeteer Movement” to put the show’s positive environmental philosophy into daily action.
Captain Planet’s co-creator and executive producer Barbara Pyle, originally from Pauls Valley, hosted a planet-wide Twitter party as well as simultaneous Planeteer Meetups in Los Angeles, New York City and even Accra, Ghana. During the event, Pyle urged the Planeteers to get their friends, family members and peers involved and to increase their social media activities for positive change.
“Twenty-plus years ago, Ted Turner and I created Captain Planet and the Planeteers to educate and motivate this next generation of global citizens,” said Pyle in a news release. “I’m happy to say that Cap has accomplished his mission, as evidenced by the now adult Planeteers who are carrying Captain Planet’s philosophy forward both personally and professionally. Understanding this Millenial generation has given me great hope for the future of the planet, and I am both inspired and humbled by them.”
