The Power is Yours! Why it’s time for Captain Planet to make a return visit

When you think back, it’s scary to consider how different the mid noughties child is to the child who grew up in the early nineties. See, back in the nineties, the internet was a foreign concept, meaning that knowledge could be accessed in one of three ways: school, the library or television. Of these three ways, television was the most accessible and creative. 

Television gave children the opportunity to absorb and experience knowledge in a manner which emphasized playfulness and imagination over dry text. It appeared to be a form of escapism but, in fact, it was an essential learning tool that packaged information in a language that children could understand and identify with.
