Greed Is the Word
101 Mutations is the thirteenth episode in the sixth season of Captain Planet and the Planeteers. It's also the final episode of the show – it wasn't continued after the sixth season.
The main characters featured in this episode are:
Wheeler's 10-year-old cousin, Joey, has to bury his six-month-old puppy. This and the following events lead the Planeteers to discover that Dr. Blight is running a puppy mill, selling sick animals.
The Planeteers promote adopting pets from shelters and having them spayed or neutered.

The name is a reference to the 1961 Disney film 101 Dalmatians.
This is often considered one of the darkest and possibly the worst episode of the show due to its animal abuse and cruelty themes (despite warning against it) but some say it was too real even for the show's standards. Another criticism is for it's horrendous ending where the puppies are later put down and Dr. Blight technically gets away with it (although she does get arrested, some say that's too tame for a punishment for someone like her).
Although this was made in 1996 and aired in Europe around that time, it didn't air on American TV until 2006 when it somehow made it to Boomerang.
