Bringing Back the 90’s Cartoons

What goes through your mind when I mention SpongeBob, X-Men, Doug, The Rugrats, Spider Man, Duckwing Duck? Those memories from the past when you watched these cartoon series may flood into your mind and you may want to watch them again. I think the 90s kids know exactly what I’m talking about..

This article is about those top ten 90s cartoons. And unfortunately they are no longer show on TV. The greatest thing about these cartoons is that we all can enjoy the crazy/funny/thrilling moments from the beginning to the end.

I think 90s is the the era of some of the best cartoons that ever aired on television. I don’t think that anybody will be able to/have ever beaten the 90s cartoons. Ok there are some pretty good cartoons now but they aren’t good enough to beat the ‘greatness’ of the 90s-cartoons (correct me if I’m wrong).

And here is the list of the top ten 90s cartoons in random order. Let me know if I’m missing something that should be in this list.

  • SpongeBob SquarePants (1999)

Comic, Family

SpongeBob is an animated comic created by Stephen Hillenburg. And it’s based on the misadventures of fast-food restaurant working sponge who lives under the sea. When it comes to 90s-cartoons no one ignore this one so it should be definitely be on this list. And whoever doesn’t like this cartoon sucks!


  • X-Men (1992 – 1997)

Action, Sci-Fi

One of my personal favorite cartoons. Staring the original early 90’s comic cast drawn by Stan Lee, and it follows the same story line as the comics. It’s one of the longest shows on Fox Kids running 5 seasons and 76 episodes. My opinion: Cyclops and Dr. Jean Grey rock! Wolverine sucks!


  • Rugrats (1991 – 2004)

Comedy, Family

Rugrats is a show about four toddlers, Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Phil and Lil Deville. As we see their lives unravel, we get to hear them talk. On the sidelines are Tommy’s mean cousin Angelica, their friend Susie Carmichael (same age as Angelica), and everybody’s parents. This is the longest running series on Nickelodeon with 14 years.


  • The Wild Thornberrys (1998 – 2004)

Comedy, Family

Wild Thornberrys is an animation created by Gabor Csupo and Arlene Klaskey based around the Thornberrys family.


  • Hey Arnold! (1996 – 2004)

Adventure, Comedy

The story is about the everyday life of Arnold, a 4th grader who lives in a multi-racial boarding house with his grandparents and an assortment of neighbors and friends.


  • Batman (1992 – 1995)

Action, Crime

Everyone knows who Batman is even if they haven’t watched the cartoon. Eric Rodomski and Bruce W. Timm are the series creators. And it’s all about the Dark knight battle crime in Gotham City with occasional help from the two characters; Robin and Batgirl. I think these kinda cartoons are too predictable. Criminal to the jail is the ultimate result of everything. Superheroes always have enemies!


  • CatDog (1998 – 2002)

Comedy, Slapstick

CatDog is a TV series created for Nickelodeon by Peter Hannan. The series depicts the life of conjoined brothers, with one half being a cat and the other a dog.


  • Spider Man (1994 – 1998)

Action, Sci-Fic

Spider Man is a super famous cartoon (or is it the movie that is so famous?) created by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee (creator of X-Men). As we all know it’s based on a young man with spider like abilities fight crimes as a superhero in New York while trying to lead a normal life. He always comes across guys with weird abilities like himself. Superheroes always need villains with super powers to fight!


  • The Powerpuff Girls (1998 – 2005)

Adventure, Comedy-Drama

A series created by Craig McCracken based around three super-powered little girls constantly save the world/ the city of Townsville from monsters, conquerors and some other grossly things before their bedtime. It’s a really cute cartoon.


  • Super Man (1996 – 2000)

Action, Adventure

If Batman and spider Man are in this list, why not Super Man? It is created by Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel. And the story based on the last son of the planet Krypton protects his adoptive home of Earth as the greatest of the superheroes. To be honest I don’t like the Super Man series that much but it isn’t bad either.

    Cool article! SpongeBob, Rugrats and X-Men are my favorite 90s cartoons too!

    From the nineties, my two favorites are Batman: The Animated Series, and Animaniacs. Both are genius works of art in their own categories. Batman captures a serious, dark vibe, while also having lighter moments. Animaniacs captures the satirical spirit of the original Looney Toons and skewers the consumerist 90’s brilliantly. My family has both on DVD, and I often go back to enjoy them. There’s nothing currently on the air like them.
    Also, I’ve rarely thought of Spongebob as a 90’s show, but I suppose it is if it started in ’99. Still, that’s one of my favorites too.
