Storyline

Many different cartoon stars like Bugs Bunny, the Muppet Babies and Garfield join forces to convince Michael, a teenage boy that drugs aren't cool. His sister, Corey, is worried about him because he's started acting differently than he used to. Many of her cartoon tie-in toys come to life, to help find her stolen piggy bank, ending up in the boy's room, finding Michael's stash of drugs, and also finding out that Michael was the one who stole Corey's money to buy marijuana! The various cartoon characters then proceed to band together, and take Michael on a fantasy journey to teach him the risks a life of drug-use can bring.

Getting kids not to try pot because all their favorite cartoon characters hate it...pretty weak!
29 April 2010 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Do you kids love Kermit and The Chipmunks and Bugs Bunny and a dozen other cartoon characters? Then you'll love their preachy anti-marijuana short film, featuring characters at random who have nothing to do with the plot, and are only there so kids can say "Hey, I love that character, I don't want to smoke!" This is a seriously bad movie, and just on how bad it was, we can only hope it turned more kids to pot just for future reference that movies like this are horrible and don't work!

The plot makes no sense at all. This kid Michael is just flung from one set piece to another, with well known 80s cartoon characters inhabiting various set pieces. The thing just feels like a stupid nightmare, and undoubtedly the director took a few tabs of acid to come up with such odd and trippy sequences. The characters who normally would try to be making jokes aren't funny in the least, and this thing just comes off as really preachy. Marijuana is shown throughout, and the villain of the film is an anthromorphic smoke creature, but never are the actual effects of marijuana use touched upon. The cartoon characters talk about how it ruins lives, but never actually talk about what it does. The only results from smoking actually shown are Michael looking in a mirror and seeing himself as a weird goon. Of course, pot smoking makes people look like the phantom of the opera, that makes sense. Well kids, now that you know that, don't do it.

The song in this thing is ear piercingly bad. Most of the kids that watched this had to have gone deaf from this out of tune cartoon warbling.

There was literally no reason for most of these characters to appear, except to cover all the popular cartoons of the era. Slimer from Ghostbusters, the Smurfs, the Chipmunks all have pointless cameos that add nothing. Most of the roles are pointless, but their's are the worst.

This is an overly preachy short, that tries to hit kids despite that it has no logic behind it's method, and what better way to tell kids what not to do than with all their favorite cartoon characters together talking about it. This is a horrible mash-up of characters, and despite that it may have worked to help kids not smoke, it scares without information, instead of informing and using logic. And if smoking pot will make all your favorite cartoon characters appear, then why not try it?

My rating: BOMB out of ****. 27 mins.
