Cartoon All-Stars

In 1995, I watched the most unbelievable show which I thought at the time could not be possible, a video starring my favorite Saturday morning cartoons all in one reel. The special was titled Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. Its focus was to teach kids how bad drugs and smoking were for them. Being five at the time, I loved it mostly because my favorite characters were all together interacting in one show.

Here is a list some cartoon characters that made cameo appearances in the special:
  • Papa Smurf, Brainy Smurf and Hefty Smurf from The Smurfs
  • Kermit, Piggy and Gonzo from The Muppet Babies
  • Pooh Bear and Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh series
  • Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck from Looney Tunes
  • Slimer from The Real Ghostbusters
  • Garfield from Garfield and Friends
  • ALF from ALF: the Animated Series
  • Michelangelo from The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Huey, Dewey and Louie from DuckTales
  • Alvin, Simon and Theodore from Alvin and the Chipmunks
The writers wanted Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy to be included; however, since some of their old cartoons involved someone smoking, they were dropped. This is pretty ironic since Bugs and Daffy smoked in some episodes and were still included in the show.

Here is a link to the special from Youtube. Feel free to watch.
