Captain Planet – teaching us all to use our loaf

It’s Belfast’s first viral video of 2007.

Captain Planet … visited Belfast … and helped people forgive and use their loafs [sic] to set up bakeries. From a real 1990s cartoon series - first broadcast in the US in late 1992 (episode 64, series 3, "If it's doomsday, this must be Belfast" of Captain Planet and the Planeteers written by Doug Molitor).

You can view the edited-down taster video on YouTube or Bebo (sharper) and then go over to GUBA to watch the original 21 minute version. It’s no spoof.

Via Letter to America, Sociable Geek, and Rather Snazzy.

I think this is hilarious - been doing the rounds with the postgrad students at Queen's University allowing people from both sides of the community to laugh at themselves and each other - not to mention Captain P.! I love the 'Stuart Cooper - that's a Protestant name if ever I heard it' and also the fact that the Irish accents sound Jamaican.

This is possibly the greatest thing I have ever seen.

I love the rampant vilification of the protestants too. And captain planet looks SO RETARDED at the end.
