Am I the only one who had my memory jogged just looking at him? Considering he had the most memorable design of everyone(the only other characters I could remember are Gaia and Dr Blight)

They are both great though David is the original and 'THE POWER IS YOURS'

Daivd Coburn is cheesy sometimes, but it works perfectly considering Captain Planet himself is pretty much that.

Yuri Lowenthal...he's okay, but a little generic.

For what he had to work with, David Coburn did a good job.

Yuri sounds a bit too young.

David Coburn for me.

To me, Yuri made Captain Planet kinda sound like Sasuke Uchiha and Yosuke Hanamura...

Did anyone know that Tom Cruise was the original choice for Captain Planet? Besides that, my vote goes to Coburn.

@DravenRoth994 I'm pretty sure that's only a rumor.

@PurpleWarrior13 Really? Time Magazine even stated this as fa back as December 1989. If that is the case, then I certaintly can't trust eveything I read.

@DravenRoth994 Ted Turner may have been pushing to cast Cruise, like all the other celebrities (Meg Ryan, Whoopi Goldberg, Tim Curry, etc), but I don't think he ever actually did any work in the role.

@PurpleWarrior13 Figures, that was also part of an article I read. He may have been considered, but whether he actually did any dialogue is unknown.

Neither voice is too original. Dave had much more to work with, and while his performance wasn't terribly memorable (it sounds a lot like Peter Kelamis' Goku voice...), it did suit the character nicely. If Yuri had more material to work with, I guess he could've worked well. I liked that he at least seemed to make his delivery campy on purpose, wheres David did it by accident. I guess I call it a tie.

David Coburn was so over the top and cheesy, but at the same time that's what I like about the performance.

Yuri Lowenthal wasn't bad, but seemed a bit too generic. Granted he didn't have a lot of material to go with, so I suppose its at least decent given the circumstances.

Still, I'm voting for David Coburn and his fantastic puns. Yuri Lowenthal is a bit of a distant second, but I think if given another chance he could do well.
