Story Mode Plot Edit
The Announcer decides to take the day off and watches various Cartoon shows. However, he finds an unknown force causing the worlds of each show to be destroyed, with villains jumping between worlds and many heroes becoming corrupted. The Announcer watches the events unfold, beginning with Spongebob and Patrick traveling to Loud House world in pursuit of Plankton. Spongebob and Patrick defeats a corrupted Lincoln Loud, freeing him from possession, but Plankton escapes, and Loud House world is engulfed in static. The 3 are pulled back to Bikini Bottom, where they are attacked by a corrupted Buttercup. She too is freed, and after a battle with Squidward, Evil world too begins to fade. However, Jimmy Neutron, Dexter and Widget arrives and rescues them with a dimension capsule before the world is destroyed. The allied heroes then use the capsule to travel between the worlds of many different shows, defeating the displaced villains while freeing the corrupted heroes and recruiting them to their cause before each world can be destroyed.
Having gathered a large team of heroes, the dimension capsule prepares to make one more warp to save the universes, but it Eventually explodes, leaving the heroes floating in an empty void. The world around them coalesces as the mastermind behind the events is revealed to be the announcer's remote control, which transforms into a sentient giant robot. The remote control traps the heroes and prepares to destroy them, but the group inadvertently summons Superman, who frees them all. The combined heroes defeat the remote control, turning it back to normal. Dexter reinsert the batteries, restoring all the worlds and returning everyone to their respective homes. The announcer laments that he no longer has a remote and now must stand up and change the channel himself, pondering the idea of getting a lava-man to change the channel for him with a giant lever instead.
Players can choose from eighteen playable characters drawn from eleven Cartoon animated series. An additional eight characters were added to the XL version for a total of 26.
