Interesting thing. After watching this video a few days ago, I decided to look it up, and found an interesting history behind it.
Two years before this show aired, Rosanne had a cartoon called "Little Rosey", which was a cartoon based on her childhood. It revolved around her at eight years old, her sister Tess, and her best friend Buddy (which I think is who the Buddy of "The Rosey and Buddy Show" is based on). Other characters included Rosey's Parents, little sisters Nonnie and Tater, and two evil nerds who served as the antagonists.
After the first season, the TV executives tried to get Rosey to change her show, one such way was in adding more male characters. Rosey refused to change her show in any way however, and an agreement couldn't be made, resulting in the show being pulled before the second season could be produced.
This show, I think, was Rosey's attempt at satirical payback for that. The Powers That Be were the TV executives who wanted to change Little Rosey, and I think that bit with Rosey and Buddy almost running over some Care Bears was a satirical jab at the kind of "kid-friendly money-making" cartoons that the "Powers That Be" would approve of. It might not make the cartoon any better, or even any good (I haven't seen it in any other format than this though, so I can't be the judge of that), but it certainly shed some light on a few things in it.

I don't think these are the actual cartoon characters as much as they are reasonable facsimiles that HAPPEN to look like the popular characters they are based on. If they DID look like the characters they're based on, then they would have gotten sued. Plus, you have the fact that this was made as a possible parody of the way networks(and their major film studio parent companies) acted towards cartoons on TV back then(which coincidentally, has not changed much nowadays.)

What I meant was that "The Rosey and Buddy Show" was a lot more like "North" than "Disaster Movie". "North" had real celebrities making guest appearances while "Disaster Movie" was just spoofing them. There's a big difference, guy. Speaking of "Disaster Movie", I tried to watch it one time, but it was so GOD-AWFULLY retarded I couldn't even sit through the first 7 minutes. I guess I didn't miss much. BTW, 4:11-5:05 That's a definite Big Lipped Alligator Moment. Am I right?

This is obviously the animated equavalent of "North". The Care Bears certainly nailed it with what they said about the arrival of Rosey and Buddy. Why the hell is Beetlejuice GREEN? He's not green, you goddamn morons, WHITE!! GET IT RIGHT! I hated this show. I hated hated hated hated hated this show. Hated it. Get the joke?

I did a little research and (going on a huntch). I believe that this was made my Nelvana because of the fact that the power house back then The Care Bears are in it and also that Beetle Juice is there but I'm a little confused as to why Warner Bro. Cartoons are there too ( I believe at this time Tom and Jerry were are Warner Bros.). Or I could be completely wrong but that is what I found and also because the animation seems to fit Nelvana's style.

Yeah, there goes my mind, too. And why do the villains look like a multicolored version of the weasel gang from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? And how is it possible that they can use all these popular cartoon characters without getting fucking SUED?
