The Earth Day Special is a television special revolving around Earth Day that aired on ABC on April 22, 1990. Sponsored by Time Warner, the two hour special featured an all-star cast addressing concerns about global warming, deforestation, and other environmental ills.

Plot[edit]

The episodic narrative, consisting of several individual skits threaded together, focused on an ailing Mother Earth (played by Bette Midler), who falls from the sky and faints, and is rushed to the hospital (attended by Neil Patrick Harris as Doogie Howser,[1] James Brolin, and Dana Delany). This special is watched by Vic (played by Danny DeVito) and Paula (played by Rhea Perlman). Several cut-aways are made to famous fictional characters watching events unfold, and discussing what can be done to save the planet.
