Teaching kids about the environment is most effective when they're unaware that they're being taught, which is why children's programming has always been such a great resource. There have been some truly high-quality kids' T.V. shows over the years that have managed to both entertain and inform kids. We're taking a look back at the best old-school shows with green themes, from the more scientific-based ones like Bill Nye The Science Guy to the adventures of environmental superhero Captain Planet. Each has a unique style, but they all maintain a lighthearted tone in getting kids to care about their planet.

Get nostalgic watching clips from these environmentally-friendly kids' shows:
