If you grew up in the late 1980s/early 1990s, surely you would probably remember summer 1990 featuring the largest cartoon crossover in history: Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. It was a social guidance film intended to tell kids about the dangers of drug abuse. It featured cartoon characters from almost every hot cartoon series of the time, guiding a teenage boy named Michael against a villainous smoke character named Smoke, voiced by George C. Scott.
The heroes of the short included: Edit
- Papa Smurf, Brainy Smurf and Hefty Smurf, The Smurfs (1981)
- Alvin, Simon and Theodore, Alvin and the Chipmunks (1983)
- Baby Kermit, Baby Piggy and Baby Gonzo, Jim Henson's Muppet Babies (1984)
- Slimer, The Real Ghostbusters (1986)
- Alf, Alf Tales (1987)
- Huey, Dewey and Louie, DuckTales (1987)
- Michaelangelo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)
- Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1988)
- Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck
- ...and of course, Garfield of Garfield and Friends appears, without consent of Jim Davis.
On Sparky's 101 Dalmatians message board, my friend Belchic remembered this special and came up with an idea for a proposed sequel. The idea surrounding it is since the first special, released in 1990, starred a collection of hit cartoon characters from the 1980s, this sequel would have occurred in the year 2000, starring a collection of hit cartoon characters from the 1990s. What you see here is a mock-up of the original art, with the new set of characters.
The heroes of this proposed short would include: Edit
- Captain Planet, Captain Planet and the Planeteers (1990)

The proposed short would also feature Donald Duck. He may not be featured here, but remember that Michaelangelo the Ninja Turtle appeared in the original short and he wasn't featured on the box.
