If you thought Winnie the Pooh was never in a movie about smoking crack– you’re wrong. If you thought The Muppet Babies never went on a psychedelic roller coaster ride through the human brain– you’re wrong. If you thought George C. Scott never voiced a pre-Lost smoke monster– you are so fucking wrong. All of these things, and more happen in Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue.
Let me make this clear, YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS MOVIE! For those of you who don’t remember it, Cartoon All-Stars is anti-drug PSA from 1990. It was sponsored by McDonalds, introduced by George H.W. Bush, and aired on all three major networks. In it, cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny, the Smurfs, Alf, Slimer, Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Daffy Duck, and The Muppet Babies ( just to name a few) spring to life in an effort to save the life of a teenage boy who’s in danger of making the inevitable transition from casual pot-user to full-blown crackhead.
