This is Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue, a half hour anti-drug special that aired in the 90s in which your favorite cartoon characters (TMNT, Winnie the Pooh, Muppet Babies, Bugs Bunny, Alf, etc.) try to stop a teenage boy from smoking pot and drinking beer.  It was simulcast on all four major networks as well as some cable outlets. Not only did it include an introduction by George and Barbara Bush, but it contained an Ashman and Menken musical number called “Wonderful Ways to Say No.”

Yes, you read that right. This really happened.

The 90s were so weird.
