Your Mental Sorbet: Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue


Here is another "Mental Sorbet
that we could use to momentarily forget about those
things that leave a bad taste in our mouths.

Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue is a 1990 American animated drug-abuse prevention television special starring many of the popular cartoon characters from American weekday, Sunday morning, and Saturday morning television at the time of this film's release. Financed by McDonald's and Chuck E. Cheese's, the special was originally simulcast on April 21, 1990 on all four major American television networks (by supporting their Saturday morning characters): ABCNBCFox and CBS, and most independent stations, as well as various cable networks. McDonald's also distributed a VHS home video edition of the special, produced by Buena Vista Home Video, which opened with an introduction from President George H. W. Bush, and First Lady Barbara Bush. The show was produced by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation and Southern Star Productions, and was animated overseas by Wang Film Productions Co., Ltd.. The musical number "Wonderful Ways to Say No" was written by Academy-Award winning composer, Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, who also wrote the songs for Disney's The Little MermaidBeauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.
