The plot chronicles the exploits of Michael, a teenage boy who is using Cannabis (drug) as well as stealing his father's Beer. His younger sister, Corey, is worried about him because he's started acting differently than he used to, like his eyes are bloodshot, and he warned Corey not to tell their parents or she'll be accused on what he's done. 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 Michael was the one who stole Corey's money to buy Cannabis (drug). 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.
