Plot Synopsis[]

Dr. Blight hatches a plan with Duke Nukem, Looten Plunder, Sly Sludge, and Verminous Skumm to steal the Planeteers' rings so that she can use her latest invention to create their evil copies. Succeeding in stealing the rings, they create the rings of Deforestation, Super Radiation, Smog, Toxics and Hate. They also discover that by combining these five polluting powers, they create Captain Pollution, their newest weapon against Captain Planet and the Planeteers. To complicate matters, they trick a lone soldier, Commander Clash, into thinking the Planeteers are enemies.

Significant Moments and Facts[]

  • The order to call Captain Pollution is a bit different from calling Captain Planet. The Super Radiation ring is the counterpart of Fire, but was called first.
  • The Deforestation ring wasn't shown used, but Captain Pollution did use this power. Also, the Hate ring wasn't shown either.
  • When Wheeler is waking up from the sleeping gas, his ring can be seen even though it was just stolen.
  • Hoggish Greedly can be seen with the other villains when they arrive on the island even though he has no role in the episode.
