Plot Synopsis[]

During a terrible storm on Hope Island, Gaia tells the Planeteers a story from 1940 of the time the grandparents of Greedly and Dr. Blight (Don Porkaloin and Betty Blight respectively) nearly destroyed a beach in Florida with irresponsible hotel building that was too close to the shores. The only ones standing in their way at the time were a small group of strangers who resembled the present Planeteers: Wally (Kwame), Nico (Wheeler), Lydia (Linka), Li (Gi), and Asi (Ma-Ti).
