Remember Levar Burton? He played this guy on Star Trek, was the guy from Reading Rainbow, and I just realized he was the voice of Kwame from Captain Planet!
I follow Levar Burton on Twitter. Why? I don’t really know. I never watched Star Trek. I would sing the Reading Rainbow theme song and watch the first 2 minutes of the show before going in to a coma from being so bored. I was a huge Captain Planet fan though, and until today I didn’t realize he was the voice of Kwame.
So, on Twitter I just asked him if he was the voice of Kwame, because I had a feeling. Sure, I could have Googled it, but wouldn’t it be more fun to say, “Levar Burton wrote me a message on Twitter. Oh, who’s Levar Burton? What’s Twitter? Never mind, then.”
So, anyway, he wrote back with “LET OUR POWERS COMBINE… EARTH!” You know you remember it! WHo wasn’t obsessed with Captain Planet? I was always obsessed with Linka. She was such a bitch to Wheeler. Such a diva, yet she had her shit together.
Anyway, there’s a screenshot of Levar replying to me on Twitter. Hilarious!
