The ultimate list of the best 90s cartoons
We had that old Ouija board. It was quite popular back then so I am sure if you grew up in the 90s, you definitely know what I am talking about.
An important part of my awesome childhood was Cartoon Network and all the great 90s cartoons. The Powerpuff Girls, Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin... You name it, I watched it. I am now 25 years old and and I have a big collection of cartoons on DVD. I have a 5 year old sister so I re-watch a lot of them almost every weekend.
If you grew up in 90 and feel nostalgic, you have a little sibling or you just love animations, this is my ultimate list of 90s cartoons.
The Powerpuff Girls
This amazing cartoon started in 1998 and lasted until 2005.
Courage the Cowardly Dog
The thing with the 90s cartoons is that they were aimed at kids, but they were so clever that could also appeal to adults. Courage the Cowardly Dog was one of these.
You can see an overprotective robot, big muscled blonde haired guy who has a guitar with super powers, an evil alien warlord, you can even see a big strong black man fighting a pink pony...
That cartoon is brilliant.
Some of the episodes include guest appearances by people like Farrah Fawcett and Adam West.
I've always loved watching it when I was a kid. Now I pray that I never have to deal with that kind of an admirer. Highly recommended cartoon!
The main character in this one is Baloo from Disney's Jungle Book. He's now a proud pilot of his own plane. His friends are the orphan bear named Kit, who stole a treasure from the evil pirate Don Karnage (I hated that guy) and the newly graduated Rebecca Cunningham who just purchased Baloo's company.
Talespin is a masterpiece!
Pinky and the Brain
It's a story about a genius mouse and his stupid friend and their attempt to conquer the world each day.
It's a spin off from another brilliant cartoon "Animaniacs".
Steven Spielberg was a producer of that cartoon, so that should tell you something.
Animaniacs is must-have for all the cartoon fans out there.
Ed, Edd 'N Eddy
It's also the longest running Cartoon Network show, which is a pretty big deal to me.
Tiny Toon Adventures
Tiny Toon Adventures is about toons who are kid-like versions of Looney Tunes. It's a super cute cartoon. Often contains political and entertainment satire, so you won't be bored even if you watch it as an adult.
It's my little sister's favorite show.
The Little Mermaid
It's another one of Disney's masterpieces! Thank you, Disney, for making my childhood so much more awesome!
It's about an ignorant, rude duck, who's also a single dad. For me that's the 90s Family Guy.
Don't watch it if you are easily offended.
Like most of the Looney Tunes related cartoons in the 90s, that one is also great.
If you have a little siblings or children they gonna love it.
I re-watched the cartoon 5 years ago because of a pure nostalgia, finally able to understand what's the show about. It's HILARIOUS! It's a story about that ridiculously looking superhero, fighting all kind of goofy villains in Washington D.C.
The cartoons these days have a lot to learn from Freakazoid! and its unique humor.
Beavis and Butt-head
I don't recommend it for kids though.
Aaahh!!! Real Monster
Maybe it was an inspiration for Monsters Inc. It's a show that will stay with me forever. I still remember the intro song, the great and unique plot and the amazing voicing.
I loved that cartoon. It's one of the last good Nickelodeon ones, before they went full retard. The 90s cartoons were so much better.
Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
The two chipmunks fighting evil villains and solving crimes is one of my favorite 90s cartoons. I own all the DVDs and I love watching them with my sister.
Highly recommended cartoon!
I actually watched most of the episodes 2 years ago, when I bought the DVD collection. I remember watching Bobby's World as a kid but didn't remember much of it, so I decided to re-watch it.
It's a great and beautiful children show.
Another one of the great Nickelodeon classic 90s cartoons. They should make a retro-channel and show all the old Nick cartoons on it. I am sure they will have a better rating than their current shows.
Doug is a magical adventure that you will never forget.
It's a story about night creatures protecting New York City. That show keeps winning new fans even if it was canceled more than 10 years ago.
The Angry Beavers
That cartoon is hilarious. It's full of surreal, odd and funny situations. Definitely one of the top Nicktoon cartoons.
Even if most of the series wasn't in the 90s (The cartoon started in 1998 and finished in 2005), I put it on my list because the best seasons of the show were the first 2.
Timon & Pumbaa
I am yet to find from where I can buy a DVD with the complete series, so If you have any idea, please let me know. I really want to watch it with my little sister.
I Am Weasel
An innovative and funny show. It gets a little bit boring after the third season but the first three were genius!
I don't recommend it for little kids, though.
Pirates Of Dark Water
I found out about it 3 years ago when a friend of mine found out that I have a huge collection of 90s cartoons and gave me the DVD.
It's a very well made cartoon with stunning graphic. It's a story about a young boy that just learns he's a prince and should go to a quest to save the world by finding 13 treasures.
A beautiful and entertaining show.
But if you need something to watch with your kids or little siblings and enjoy it with them The Tick will do it for you.
Tom & Jerry Kids
Some people don't rate that show too high but I really enjoyed it as a kid. I don't think it's for adults, though. The humor is for little children.
Sabrina, the Animated Series
She loved it.
To be honest you can hardly find any bad Disney animation. Sadly there's no DVD of the completed series. I own the VHS version of it which is pretty bad since I can't watch it anymore.
Captain Planet And The Planeteers
I really loved it. It's a wonderful cartoon for all ages.
I recommend it for children under 10.
Conan The Adventurer
If you have a little boy, he's gonna love that show.
The Magic School Bus
I recommend it to all parents who wants to educate their children at a young age.
Dr. Katz Professional Therapist
This show is not for everyone. You either gonna love it or hate it.
Men in Black: The Animated Series
The cartoon came out immediately after the release of the first movie, which was a huge hit, and I was obsessed. The plot was similar like the one in the movie so it was like a continue of the agent Kay and agent Jay adventures.
Lovely cartoon, I wish I could find all the seasons on DVD.
Rocko's Modern Life
It's a charming, funny and unique show. There are some rude gags, but nothing too extreme.
One of the best things in this show is that the characters are very well written, unique and realistic.
It's for adults and kids. There excellent messages in every episode.
Space Ghost Coast to Coast
It's a story about Space Ghost, a retired super hero on his 40s, who in order to stay under the lights, starts his own talk show, filmed in space. Space Ghost Coast to Coast is highly underrated. It was genius!
If you are searching for something unusual, different and unique, look no further.
But I just couldn't miss it on my list of the best 90s cartoons. It was one of the best. With a huge fan base, mostly boys, it was one of the most popular cartoons back then.
Batman: The Animated Series
It's a must see!
A lot of the jokes on it aren't for children. I liked the series better than the movie. The cartoon was funnier. Lovable characters, great graphics, voicing and unique plot.
The Ren & Stimpy Show
If you haven't seen it in the 90s, do it now. You gonna love it.
Earthworm Jim is a worm super hero, fighting all kind of hilarious villains in a fantastic surreal world. I own the DVD and the video game.
Cow and Chicken
Still, I think the writers smoked something, while making that cartoon.
I haven't seen any other cartoon like Aeon Flux. It was really unique.
The Incredible Hulk: Animated Series
The series had a great potential but they cancelled it after the second season.
King Arthur and the Knights of Justice
King Arthur and his knights are captured by Morgana, and Merlin casts a spell to bring the American football team The Knights to help him.
A great cartoon with a unique plot.
It's one of the best comics adaptations ever since Aeon Flux. The artwork is brilliant.
I can't believe they didn't make more of this cartoon.
One of MTV's best, back then when MTV was actually a good channel.
The cartoon started in 1991 and ended in 2004. One of the most successful animations ever.
Superman: The Animated Series
The DVD is a must-have if you are a Superman fan.
It's more suitable for boys, though.
X-Men has one of the best graphics of all cartoons from the nineties. They released five seasons of it, all of them successful.
I am not a big fan of the movies, though. To me the cartoons were much better.
Highly recommend it to all Marvel fans.
That was my list of the best 90s cartoons. I am so happy that I grew up in years when they made so many astonishing cartoons. The 90s were the best!
So, what was your most favorite cartoon? Tell me if I missed some great show.[left-sidebar]
