2 | Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue with Damon Blake

Alan Maguire and Ellen Tannam talk to comedian Damon Blake of Fox and Blake about the mind-bending 1990 anti-drugs cartoon Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue in which The Smurfs, Alvin & The Chipmunks, Alf, Garfield, Winnie The Pooh, Slimer, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Muppet Babies, and Bugs Bunny team up to convince a drug-taking teen to change his ways. It’s powerful stuff.

Before you listen I highly recommend watching the cartoon here:

We cover a lot of ground in this episode including drugs, Michelangelo’s appeal to at-risk kids, Australian prime ministers, single-sex Catholic schooling, The Pioneers, The Fáinne, Tallaght Leisureplex, the debauched secrets of the voices behind your favourite cartoon characters, Disney Cruises, the catchiest anti-drugs song ever, the tragedy of Lorenzo Music, and the effectiveness of the war on drugs. Enjoy and remember that only losers and cool people do drugs.
