"Widget, the World Watcher" was similar to "Captain Planet" in that both revolved around supernaturally-gifted people... okay, creatures in this case... battling to rescue the earth from environmental catastrophe. This didn't have any Ted Turner backing or name stars doing voices - although I doubt Tom Cruise would have been as good a voice actor as Rob Paulsen - but it was less pretentious, less politically correct in its characters (face it, apart from Wheeler none of the Planeteers were renowned for their looseness) and ultimately more watchable. Plus it did have a sense of humour absent from the good Captain.

The "Awesome!" lingo spouted by Widget really grated, as if the producers were trying too hard to appeal to its audience, but as far as cartoons aired by Channel 4 in the early 1990s went, there were far worse offenders (case in point the American-Dutch cartoon "The Bluffers," which is so (rightly) obscure it isn't even listed on the IMDb). Forget "RI:SE," bring back the Banana Splits and "The Adventures of T-Rex" I say...
