Intro to animated series recreated for your amusement.
If you were a kid in the nineties, there was only one place to go for heavy handed moral lessons about protecting the Earth from environmental destruction, the Saturday morning cartoon Captain Planet. A new video from YouTuber Merfish has recreated the cartoon's classic introduction using characters in Grand Theft Auto V.
It's pretty darn close to the source material, albeit with a bit of GTA flair as the re-cast Planeteers seem to call on the gifts of their rings with a flip of the bird. By their powers combined, they summon the closest thing Los Santos has to an unstoppable force of nature, Trevor, painted blue and clad in Captain Planet's signature midriff-exposing shirt and undies.
You can watch a side-by-side comparison of the original introduction and the recreation here.
This is far from Merfish's first foray into remaking television openers using GTA V. Their YouTube channel features more than a dozen such videos, including remakes of the intros to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The A-Team, Three's Company, and more.
