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.

One of the dumbest things you'll ever watch!
30 October 2006 | by lemon-lime-pie-2See all my reviews

I watched this a week or two ago in RAID(Reduce Abuse in Drugs) Our police officer left us this video to watch. We watch a video every week and this one was SO funny. I was sitting beside my friend, Wenster and we were both laughing together. We were told not to laugh but it was too funny. Of course it was not pointless because it was about drugs, but it was weird. It won't only change my life, but it will change yours as well! Nope. Jokes. But it was quite funny and anything but pointless. Watch this at school and you will be laughing nonstop but also getting the message at the same time. Its good, but stupid.

Check it out.
