Shouts to listener Chris for sending this to me. Thanks for the overwhelming sense of nostalgia as EVERY CARTOON CHARACTER OF MY CHILDHOOD TEAMS UP!

American culture in the 80s and early 90s was seemingly based on two things: music made by people on a lot of drugs and cartoons telling kids not to do drugs.

This one is the best example of the latter that I've ever seen.

Enjoy, in all its glory, the ENTIRE Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. See how Alf, Garfield, the Smurfs, Bugs Bunny, the Muppet Babies, and more (!) try to stop a kid from throwing his life away with drugs ~*!!!!!!

The plot chronicles the exploits of Michael, a teenager who is using marijuana and stealing his father's beer. His younger sister, Cory, is worried about him because he started acting differently. When her piggy bank goes missing, her cartoon tie-in toys come to life to help her find it. After discovering it in Michael's room along with his stash of drugs, the various cartoon characters proceed to work together and take him on a fantasy journey to teach him the risks and consequences a life of drug-use can bring and save the world.

 

 

My only regret is that this was made just before James Bond Jr. debuted:
