Title Screen

Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue was a half-hour animated drug prevention special starring many of the popular cartoon characters from American Saturday morning television shows, which was simulcast on April 21, 1990 on all three major American television networks (ABC, NBC, and CBS), most independent stations, as well as cable networks Nickelodeon and USA.


Cory (voice of Lindsay Parker), is worried about her older brother Michael (voice of Jason Marsden) because he's started acting differently. When her piggy bank goes missing, her cartoon tie-in toys (which includes Slimer from The Real Ghostbusters) 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 band together and take him on a fantasy journey to teach him the risks and consequences a life of drug-use can bring. The villain of the story, besides the drugs, is Smoke (voice of George C. Scott), an anthropomorphic cloud of smoke with a mafioso-like appearance and personality.
