Anyone old enough to remember the crime-fighting, recycling, Earth Day heroics of Captain Planet should appreciate the sheer ignorance of this spoof. Forget Don Cheadle’s hotshot rendition of one of the most freakish looking superheroes of all time for a second. Check how Funny or Die so brilliantly highlight each of the secondary character’s random accents (which include Efren Ramirez a.k.a. Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite and Disney Channel darling Brenda Song) along with the ridiculous environment-endangering plot line that haunted every episode.
Of course it’s the freedom for Don Cheadle to bring out his inner n-bomb that makes the whole thing gel…and hilarious.
Well done, FOD. Very well done.
