Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue (1990) – Animated TV Special
In this made-for-TV movie, many well-known cartoon characters of past and present teach a young boy how wrong it is to take drugs. They show him the bad side effects and how it hurts his family and friends.
Nine-year-old Corey is very worried about her older brother Michael. He’s using drugs, and he just stole her piggy bank to buy some more. Luckily, Corey has help. TV’s most popular cartoon characters leap into action to help free her brother from the clutches of Smoke, a deceptive and corrupting character who’s leading Michael down the road to a drug-abuse dead end. What follows is a roller coaster ride through the perils, pitfalls and realities of drug abuse in which the Cartoon All-Stars prove that there’s a smarter way to go.
