| "There's a million zillion wonderful ways to say no!"
Such a memorable part of my childhood. I recorded it off TV on VHS and watched it many times. Not because I was needing an intervention on drug use, just because I liked seeing all these cartoon characters together who normally never would be. Introduced by then-President George Bush and his wife Barbara, this is a made-for-TV drug PSA starring many of my favorite Saturday morning cartoon characters (and others that weren't my favorites). The characters include Garfield, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, the Smurfs, the Chipmunks, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Alf, Slimer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michelangelo, Muppet Babies, and Huey, Duey, and Luey. They all come together to help a kid who's been seduced into using drugs by the villainous smoke monster "The Man in Charge." It's the kind of thing that ticks off certain crowds today and I'm sure it ticked them off then, as well. Watching it for the first time in at least twenty-five years, I see the preachiness of it more but it's well-meaning so I don't mind that much. The animation is decent for the time, with a couple of weird sequences that stand out. There's also a song, which is as corny as can be but adds to the camp appeal. Overall it's of interest as a nostalgia piece for people like me and as a curio for animation fans. Will it keep your kids off dope? No, of course not. Will it hurt? No, of course not. It's just fun. If baby Kermit & Miss Piggy taking a kid on a "trip" doesn't make you smile, you need to put out an APB on your sense of humor.
