    Hello, I don't know if anyone esle remembers this...But does anyone remember a special called Cartoon all stars to the rescue. It was a little special about a teenage boy who did drugs (I think just pot) and all these cartoon characters came to get him off. There were cartoon like Bugs and Daffy, Mikey of the Ninja Turtles, Winnie the pooh and Tigger. Plus the Muppet babies of Kermit, Miss. Piggy and Gonzo. This has just pop in my head and I wanted to know it anyone esle remembers. I remember renting it alot. I should see if that's on ebay or something, that would be kinda cool to have on DVD, I think. Well does anyone esle remember this, I really loved it.

    I didn't remember the Muppet babies in it, but the special I do remember quite fondly. Probably I think Alf stole the show.

    Yeah dude the Muppet Babies were totally in it. I remember that the Teen was riding A roller coaster with Baby Kermit. That's why I don't think we'll see it on DVD any time soon, because of all these great copyrighted characters. At least now Disney owns both Muppet Babies and Winnie the Pooh, so maybe that's something of a good sign. This was such a great with such great cartoons, I would say that this is one of the best anti-drug things ever done. Also remember on the VHS how it had the opening from presdent Bush SR. I'm going to say that it was because of this show as to way I don't do drugs to day:) . That's why it needs to be release on DVD and be viewed by younger kids of today. It was so great, I went on Ebay to try and get a vhs copy, man that's going for a good 25 bucks and that's just a vhs. I would think it would do well on DVD.

    I thought it was a really great concept. Kinda mind blowing, in childhood terms. It was like seeing Spider-Man (who's owned by Marvel comics) and Superman (owned by DC Comics) teams up. It's just something you fantasize about, and when it actuallt happens, you're just blown away. I recall that Muppet Babies, Alf, Ducktales, Flintstone Kids, Alvin and the Chipmunks and possibly the Smurfs were all in it (there were probably others that I'm forgetting). What I thought was really wild was that they got an Oscar winning actor, George C. Scott, to voice the villain, a suit-wearing whisp of marijuana smoke! Wadda wild idea all around!

    Yeah it was great to see this as a kid, and I think it would be great to see right now.I mean (at the time) Muppet Babies being owned by Henson, Winnie, Tigger and Ducktales being owned by Disney, and Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck (Warner Bros), all kind of rival companies, all leading some of their biggest stars to this, good message special. That's just really great. I so want to get that on VHS and it really needs to get on DVD some time, that's classic.

    Also please forgive me for the correction, but the Flintstone kids were not a part of this special. The Smurfs were a part of this, though.

    Here is the complete list of characters on this great show:

    Alf (as a cartoon of course)
    Alvin and the Chipmunks (Alvin, Simon, and Theodore)
    Huey, Dewey and Louie (of Ducktales)
    Winnie The Pooh and Tigger
    Muppet Babies (Baby Kermit, baby Piggy, and baby Gonzo)
    The Smurfs (Papa, Brainy and smurfent)
    Michaelangelo (Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles)
    Slimer (The Real Ghostbusters)
    Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck (Looney Tunes)

    Interesting facts the same guy to do baby Gonzo's voice is also the same person to do Huey, Dewey and Louie.

    Yeah, Russi Taylor. She's also been the voice of Minnie Mouse since the early 80's and married Wayne Allwine, the guy who's voiced Mickey since the 80's!

    I loved this special and I loved the song that all the characters sang together.

    That's right, I'm sorry. Good job Dantecat.;) That's why I said she was there, because I remember she was on the cover of the box.

    You may be exactly correct JJandJanice.:D

    By the way,What other MB Characters would be good in this special? I'd pick Rowlf,Scooter and Skeeter,and Maybe Bunsen and Beaker.Not sure about Fozzie and Animal.:o :halo:

    I think that the whole Muppet Baby cast would be great for this special, because all the Muppet Babies are very holesome. The only one whose not so much would be Animal, since out of all the Muppet Babies, Animal is the only that really was the most baby like, he was the youngest after all.

    But of all the Muppet Babies to not be in this special, I would of loved to see Rowlf the most. Just because he's one of my all time favorite Muppets and a favorite Muppet Baby as well.

    Plus I was a huge Ninja Turtles fan and my favorite was Rapheal, so I was a little disappointed he wasn't in it.

    On IMDB.com, I read that Garfield was used without cartoonist Jim Davis' permission, so that's why they've never re-run it on television. Evidently though, his frustration must not carry over to homevideo.

    I remember that. It blew my mind to see everyone in one place, because to me cartoon worlds didn't intersect unless they were Disney characters. I thought Disney didn't have the right to the Muppet Babies.

    I think that might only be because they knew a lot of teachers would buy this perhaps. *just a random thought about it*
