Trivia:

Created the children's cartoon show Captain Planet and the Planeteers (1990) as a way to educate kids about the negative effects of pollution. Turner was angered for so long about the effect the population had on the Earth, so he created the TV show hoping to let the next generation be more aware of the problems that people cause.
