That was basically the message behind the 1990 animated movie Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue and so if you're currently smacked off your tits whilst reading this, then that message didn't get through to you!
If however you're not one of our drugged up readers then congratulations, the message of the movie got through loud and clear!
Featuring some of the world's most famous cartoon characters, Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue was a movie specially commissioned to get drug-addled teens off the smack!
It was 30 minutes long, was endorsed by the then President of the United States George Bush Snr and featured a bunch of 80s and 90s animated superstars.
Hmm..so why do we care about this at The Comics Code?
Well firstly because we're all about helping kids get off the drugs and secondly (and more importantly) because the animated special featured a number of comic-book characters!
Financed by fast food goliath McDonald's, Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue told the story of troubled teen Michael and his young sister Corey as they battled with Michael's increasing addiction to drugs. Yes, back before Ronald McDonald had his Maccy-D restaurants switching their burgers for 'healthy' salads, the considerate clown was doing his best to deal with the more important problems that teens faced in the late 80s and early 90s - crack! Over the course of 30 minutes the animated movie united a number of high-profile characters to show Michael (and the kids watching at home) that getting high is for losers, and that they should keep clear of the dreaded Smoke!
Just to highlight how important this movie was, it was also introduced by President Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush, was simultaneously broadcast on CBS, ABC and NBC and was available to rent on VHS for free!
He added: "If you're a parent like me you know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are and you know the powerful impact that those turtles - along with figures like Bugs Bunny, Winnie the Pooh, the Smurfs and ALF - have on our children."
Was he correct? Well, possibly not. I mean, come on, he clearly hadn't see that episode of Grange Hill where Zammo was off his box (now that was powerful stuff.) However he was right about the power that toons had on kids. Whether the movie worked or not, the fact that so many characters joined forces is certainly worth applauding and in what other story would you see Michelangelo team up with Papa Smurf?
Now put down the drugs or Smoke is gonna get ya.
