Cartoon All-Stars Unite! is a 2005 video game featuring characters and levels from All of your favorite cartoon characters. It spawned 4 sequals- Cartoon All-Stars: Battle for Volcano Island, Cartoon all-stars: Attack of the Toybots, Cartoon All-Stars: Globs of Doom, and Cartoon All-Stars Ultimate Brawl X.
Story Begins in one fine morning, SpongeBob SquarePants and his pet Snail name Gary goes out of his house, he sees that Plankton has taken over Bikini Bottom and used multiple tank-like vaccuums to suck all the town's civilians. Spongebob sees Stitch coming out through a portal and receives a message from Dexter. He follows Goddard through the portal to the laboratory and meets Dexter, Danny Phantom, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Grim Reaper, Billy, Mandy, The Powerpuff Girls, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Maggie, Mrs. Calloway, Grace, Ami & Yumi, Mac & Bloo, and Sailor Moon. Dexter tells The Cartoons about his new invention, The Universal Portal Machine. As he says, it allows people to travel to other worlds. But Mr. Dark has been spying on him, stole his idea and created his own Portal Machine. With it, he brought Plankton, Mojo Jojo, Gargamel, Rico, Alameda Slim, Dora The Explorer, Caillou, Him, Princess Morbucks, Skeletor, and Dark Kingdom to his dimension. They formed a Syndicate and proceed to steal energy from all the worlds. Since our heroes don't know where Calamitous' lair is, they start with saving all of their worlds first.
They go to Tokyo City (Sailor Moon's Universe) first and find Sailor Jupiter. Sailor Jupiter reveals that he uses his Power-portal to steal Evil energy from the Ghost Zone. Vlad has also captured Sailor Moon's parents. Then, he sends the heroes to the Ghost Zone Prison. The Cartoons survive in the Prison, and defeat Dark Kingdom, Dora and Caillou. They break out of the Prison through a portal and end up in Fenton Works. They see many Amity Park civilians possessed by ghosts, but manage to push them out. The Cartoons go, by advice of Sam and Tucker, to the Amity Park Graveyard, which is a shortcut to Vlad Plasmius' Castle. When they go in, Dexter realizes that there are generators that help Vlad keep the portal open. They find the generators, and destroy them, shutting off the portal. When they find Rico (The Evil Duor), the Cartoons defeat him and save Sailor Mars and Maddie Fenton without them noticing the Cartoons. They also find out that the Syndicate is building something.
Next, our heroes go to Bikini Bottom to fight Mojo Jojo, Him and Plankton. They meet Sandy, and follow her to The Krusty Krab. Sandy tells the Cartoons that they should find some guards which should help them find Plankton and the Jellyfish Factory. Fortunately, they found the guards. Sandy then explains that Plankton uses the harvesters capture various Jellyfish, and is extracting power from their sting in the factory. Him, Mojo Jojo and Plankton also captured Mr. Krabs. Sandy told the Cartoons that they must go into the Jellyfish Factory and free all the Jellyfish. After Sailor Moon asked if they have any secret agents (since he thought that it's like a spy movie), Sandy said that they have an agent in Jellyfish Fields, who reveals to be Patrick, but he's been captured by a Jellyfish harvester. After destroying all the harvesters, the Nicktoons go to the factory but during the journey, they find themselves on the Flying Dutchman's Ship and The Flying Dutchman is going to make them his new crew for all eternity. Luckilly, the Dutchman frees them after they bring back his old crew. When the Nicktoons arrived to the Chum Bucket, they free Patrick, then freed all the Jellyfish by opening the emergency vents. Later, they went up to the top of the Chum Bucket, they beat the 3 bad guys and rescue Mr. Krabs. The Cartoons find out that the villains are extracting energy for a Doomsday Device.
In Dimmsdale, the Cartoons see Slim has made the fortress made of gold. They also find a rainbow of pure Cowboy Magic from the Barn that is ending there, so they go in. After they re- activate the prisms, they get transported to Barn World, where they meet Buck. Buck explains that Slim is extracting the magic from the Big Wand to feed the Doomsday Machine. After freeing the fairies, they go to The Big Wand, where they defeat Crocker. Danny figured out that every time they beat their enemies, they're running away, which was a part of a plan.
Finally, the Nicktoons return to Retroville, where Dexter finds Dee Dee in his lab and he also receives a message from Evil Darkness that they've almost finished the Doomsday Machine and the Cartoons can't stop them. After SpongeBob notices that Mr. Dark has fleas, Dexter says that Goddard doesn't get the fleas. Then, he figured out how Mr. Dark could spy on him; he was using a flea-bot inside Mr. Dark. So the Cartoons shrink themselves down and go to Mr Dark's Grandpa's stomach. They beat a lot of mini flea-bots throughout Goddard, and The Cartoons gain Mr. Dark's trust. They go to Grandpa's head and beat the giant flea-bot. Dexter used the flea-bot's circuitry and locate Calamitous' secret lair, which is situated under an old warehouse. When they get to Mr. Dark' Doomsday lab, they find The Syndicate in a wheel- like machine which shields them. They beat the Syndicate but they see that the Doomsday Device is still counting down to destroy the universe and it can't be stopped. Luckilly, The Cartoons unpluggs the Doomsday Machine and saves the universe.
After putting Mr. Dark's in jail, the Cartoons said themselves goodbye, but before they went, Dexter gave them the Neutronic Recallers in case of another event like this. SpongeBob said that Dexter can visit him anytime he likes, but then he said he should get going, so he won't be charged by Mr. Krabs for wasting his time, Danny gave Dexter a copy of the Fenton Thermos (since the real thermos had Vlad trapped inside, Danny used Dexter's Matter Duplicator to make a copy), then The Cartoons thanked Dexter for lending him his Hyper-Cube for holding The Villains until The Cartoons get back to Their Home Worlds. After this, Dexter says a familiar line: "Mandark, get out of my lab!"
