Moms and Kids: Watch Captain Planet 24/7

Yet another way to get your kids thinking about the environment in a fun way ...

Ted Turner's daughter, Laura Turner Seydel, has been running the Captain Planet Foundation -- a non-profit charity to educate kids about taking care of the environment -- for many years now. You may remember the Captain Planet cartoons that ran in the 1990's. In 2007, Seydel's Foundation acquired the rights to the cartoon series. Now you can watch the series online at the Mother Nature Network (formerly part of now-defunct Plenty Magazine -- such a great pub), and also on April 18 on Cartoon Network's Boomerang channel there will be a Captain Planet marathon.

There's also an online game at Boomerang called "Captain Planet and the Robots of Zarm" that your kids can check out.
