For my first official post, I bring you nostalgic GOLD.
Remember Cartoon All Stars to the Rescue? That was a kid's dream TV special. Where else could you see such an epic cartoon crossover? Twenty characters from ten different shows were featured, including:
ALF (ALF: The Animated Series)
Alvin, Simon, and Theodore (Alvin and the Chipmunks)
Huey, Dewey, and Louie (Duck Tales)
Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck
Baby Kermit, Baby Piggy, and Baby Gonzo (Muppet Babies)
Slimer (Real Ghostbusters)
Papa Smurf, Brainy Smurf, and Hefty Smurf
Michelangelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
Winnie the Pooh and Tigger
If you need a refresher, here's a summary, courtesy of Voice Chasers: "Nine year old Corey is very worried about her older brother, Michael. He is using drugs and he just stole her piggy bank to buy some more. Luckily, Corey has help. TV's most popular cartoon characters, including Winnie the Pooh, Bugs Bunny, Alf, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a host of other animated all-stars, 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."

Hearing Winnie the Pooh and the Muppet Babies talk about crack: priceless
Here's the episode in its entirety, sans the Ronald McDonald house ad and Daddy Bush's intro (if you want to see that part, go here). Enjoy!
