It’s already 2 long decades when we left the era of the 90s behind, but the memories still, transpire us and make us overwhelmed with a great feeling of nostalgia.
Back then as a kid, we always admired reading comics and watching our favorite cartoon shows. These two things may be less in quantity but used to put a generic smile on our faces every time. To relive what was once the best part of our lives, we have compiled a list of 10 best cartoons that will surely take you on a trip down memory lane. So, without any further ado, let us start.
10 Best 90s Cartoon Shows That Made Our Childhood Memorable
1. Dexter’s Laboratory (1996)
A pocket-sized boy genius scientist who is phenomenal with his experiments and owns a lab in his room his mom and dad are unaware of.
However, the most annoying thing in his perfect life is his elder sister Dee Dee who is always slamming his experiments, and the two go on wacky (yet Sci-Fi) capers. The premise of the show is very original, filled with some clever and humorous jokes. One can never get bored watching the whole presentation.
2. X-Men: The Animated (1992)
Professor X, Logan aka Wolverine, Raven, etc. X-Men and their subsequent spin-off series may have graced the silver screen in the late 90s or early 2000s, but the kids back in the 90s had a better idea of X-Men courtesy of the animated series that went on the floors in 1992.
The series was fascinating and stayed true to every inch of the original comic books. Kids thoroughly enjoyed every spearing character and were well aware of mutants before the decorated series hit the big screens.
3. The Powerpuff Girls (1998)
One of the most loved cartoons of its time, The Powerpuff Girls got released in 1998, and you can still watch it on Hulu.
Blossoms, Bubbles, and Buttercup have superpowers, and their creation was a mere mistake by their dad, scientist Professor Utonium, who wanted to create three perfect children but ended up creating three supremely powerful ones. The three girls used to live in the city of Townsville and used their superpowers to overcome the evil in the city led by the only antagonist Mojo Jojo.
4. Courage the Cowardly Dog (1999)
This is my personal favorite on the list. Courage the Cowardly Dog was a highly proclaimed animated series that got bestowed with many accolades during its 4-year run.
Courage is the name of a Pink anthropomorphic dog who lives with an elderly couple in a farmhouse in the middle of a “no man’s land.” Courage takes care of the elderly couple wisely and keeps them out of harm’s way of the bizarre and paranormal or supernatural-type misadventures.
5. Tiny Toon Adventures (1990)
Your favorite Looney Toons characters were at it again with Tiny Toon Adventures. The series features a group of young cartoons who are studying at Acme acres Looniversity whose name includes Buster Bunny; Plucky Duck; Babs Bunny; Calamity Coyote; Hamton J. Pig; Fifi La Fume; Dizzy Devil; and Sweetie Bird.
These characters are in the Looniversity to learn comedy and gags from the pros like Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny.
6. DuckTales (1990)
Remember them literally swimming in gold coin mines. How can someone don’t fall in love with DuckTales? Our very own beloved Uncle Scrooge McDuck babysitting his three nephews Hewey, Dewey, and Louie is a sight still beholds a sharp place in our overwhelming memories.
Uncle Scrooge is in all possession of his three nephews after Donald Duck decides to join the Navy in the premises. The quartet of ducks takes off on crazy adventures and hunt for more money for Scrooge McDuck.
7. Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
DC Comics’ very own Batman was first scripted as an animated series before adapting the big screens. Fans loved Batman: The Animated Series for its darker tone that was always true to the original transcript.
Robin, Batgirl, Commissioner Gordon, and all the favorite antagonists mentioned in the original comics made their way throughout the series.
8. The Simpsons (1990)
If Tom & Jerry and Scooby-Doo set the benchmark of animations after its inception, then ‘The Simpsons’ set its tone. The animation series had a magnificent run for 20 years, making it the longest-running cartoon series ever.
The family includes Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie, live in the town of Springfield and does an amazing job of depicting a working-class family and the crazy antics that invade their everyday life.
9. Disney’s Recess (1997)
When Disney channel India aired Recess, a little did people know that this show hails from the 90s. The cartoon series did an outstanding job of depicting a school’s recess period and how the students made new strategies to do their own thing. Kids still enjoy watching the episodes of Recess.
10. The Magic School Bus (1994)
An educational adaptation of a book series of the same name, The Magic School Bus always took us to a world of fantasies and implanted great and thrilling memories.
The animation show was an amalgamation of education and entertainment, and kids thoroughly enjoyed it in its magnificent TV run. The episodes were contagious and shared information about Biology and Earth Science, and the best part was, kids hardly realized that they were learning something new.
Time to wrap:
These names must have given you a nostalgic feel, and there’s no doubt about the fact that 90s cartoon shows are the very best the decade had to offer.
