Subject: What cartoons you remember the most in the 90s?

Written By: Kyle on 07/24/04 at 4:40 pm

There are otsl of cartoons in the '90s that were considered quality children's programming and memorable.  Here's the list:


The Ren and Stimpy Show
Very funny, I can't even resist laughing when that cartoon came on the air.  Pretty much like today's Spongebob Squarepants, it uses lots of slapstick humor and even a little bit of sattire.  This show rocks.
The Powerpuff Girls
Came out in the late 1990s, about 98.  It was originally intended for 2nd to 3rd grade girls, like Barney was intended for...retarded 2 year olds, boys like it too, and they are fully masculine.  One problem there was too much Mojo-JoJo and Princess, but I still had the same belly laughs during that time period. 

Pokémon
Gotta catch em' all was the trademark, and it really caught on.  Even in the smallest villages, Pokémon was big.  Like PPG, it was intended for 6-12 years of age, even above.  You can still watch Pokemon on the WB and Cartoon Network.

2 Stupid Dogs
Those dogs were stupid, but they were funny.  They always seem to cause some very nutty scheme, but most of them didn't work.  A good rip off from Cow and Chicken, which had anither series in middle or end episode.  Secret Squirrel was less funny, but I got a few laughs from it.

Cow and Chicken

STUPID!  One time, they were making fun of the Elementary to High School transition, and I was afraid to even step into the high school ever since.  Now I know it's just plain ol' sattire humor.  Why do they NOT show the parents heads?  Another series, I R Weasal was the last segment show.

These are only a few, tell me your opinions.

Beavis And Butthead!

When I was in highschool I remember when my friend would bring back episodes of that show when he would go to the states.

David the Gnome was one of my favourite cartoons featuring the voice of Tom Boswell (Father Dowling/Mr Cunningham from Happy Days.

Stuff I watched in the early/mid 90s (may not have been from the 90s mind . . .)

Sharkey and George
Little shop of Horrors
Hammerman
New kids on the block (oh-hum)
Kid and Play
Alfred J Kwak
Star Street

There are others I'm sure . . .  ::)  ;D

I love these Koop. I didn't think much of Beavis and Butthead and I thought King of the Hill was a bit twee in places.

I understand what you mean about Johnny Bravo though - It is so funny.  ;D

No sheesh?  Huh that really amazes me.  I always liked Tom Boswell and now that you say that I can match up David's voice to Richie's dad on Happy days. That is so cool.

There was a cartoon series on MTV during the very early nineties (90-92) called Liquid Television. It would have serials like "Aeon Flux" and "Beavis and Butthead" - that's where the show hit off.

Lol. I made a mistake, Harmonica. His name was Tom Bosley - still it's the same man and I think he is a great actor.  :)

I mostly watched cartoons in the early 90s. Some of the cartoons I watched were originally from the 80s, but there are some that began in 1990 or later, such as:

Tiny Toon Adventures
Tale Spin
Beetlejuice
Goof Troop
Animaniacs
Pinky and the Brain

Those were good. So was "The Simpsons" during its first few seasons.

lol - these were some pretty insane cartoons! Remember in Cow & Chicken how the Dad drove a car with his feet & dressed in drag? A cartoon trying to appeal to the entire social strata.

My personal favourite was Davind the Gnome. It came on Nickleodeon at like noon when I was little, and I love love loved it. He had like a gnome wife and he rode around the forest on a fox, and he fought with the bad trolls. I just thought it was lovely.

I also was a big fan of the Gummie Bears. They fought that evil prince guy, and whenever they drank the gummie juice they could bounce really high. Speaking of really high, the creators of this toon were probably really high when they thought of it.

Let's see... The Mystic Knights of Tír na nÓg wasn't a cartoon. It was more like the power rangers, celtic style. It was so awesome and though I was around 12 when it came on and probably a little too old to watch it... I was captivated.

Beavis & Butthead
I believe I started watching this when I was 11 or 12. I snuck around to see it because Mom didn't like it  ;D

Sonic the Hedgehog
Better known as SatAM. The ABC edition of Sonic. The best children's cartoon of the 1990s.

The Simpsons
Well duh.

Captain Planet
Worst cartoon on Earth with the worst love theme ever.

The Real Ghostbusters
Yeah, I know the copyright is 1987, but this ran well into the early 1990s. I have it on a tape of ABC Saturday Morning (Along with the AM Posse! I wonder where the Posse actors are now.)
