VIDEO: Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue

One of my contributions to Network Awesome's week-long "Salute to Drugs", Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue is an animated anti-drug special simulcast by every major network, as well as many cable outlets, on April 21, 1990. What sets it apart from any other special or "very special episode" is that major companies, including Disney and Warner Brothers among others, allowed their characters to be used royalty free. I guess the scourge of drugs is enough to persuade normally litigious media companies to put branding and copyright aside. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, McDonald's financed the whole thing. Enjoy!
