Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue!

Remember this? If you were a child of the early 90's you might remember a Roger Rabbit-esque adventure featuring the Ninja Turtles, Garfield, Winnie the Pooh, Bugs Bunny, the Smurfs, Muppet Babies, Alvin and the Chipmunks, ALF, Slimer, the Duck Tales and more helping a cute little girl's big brother about the dangers of drugs. My parents wanted me to listen to the moral but I was more stoked about my fav characters getting together. It aired on the major networks at the time NBC, ABC, CBS and Univision (in Spanish of course) at the same time. At the time, ALF had a cartoon on NBC Saturday Mornings and the Smurfs were on it too. Remember when NBC had cartoons?

Bugs Bunny was the one hardest on the kid. It didn't seem out of character at all but the music does get a bit heavy and out of place. And don't get me started on how weird it is the Muppet Babies talking about drugs. But that smoke dude was pretty creepy villian. Pretty good writing and colab anyway. The 'say no' song sucks though. Also, how does Simon know about Mari-ja-uana anyway?
