10 Best Cartoons of the 1990s

Published: April 1, 2014

The 1990s were a golden age of cartoons. There were many new series filled with laughs, excitement, and drama. I know people that grew up dring this decade have many fond memories of great shoes, characters, and theme songs.

  1. Gargoyles (1994 - 1997)

    This series was incredible. This is a rich fully fleshed world with interesting characters and plenty of action.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gargoyles_(TV_series)

  2. Darkwing Duck (1991 - 1992)

    When you are in trouble call DW. I think this series was a great balance between comedy and action. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darkwing_Duck

  3. Dexter's Laboratory (1996 - 2003)

    Dexter inspired many kids to enter science. Cool lab, gadgets, and a monkey was just cool. And it is so easy to identify with a simbling who annoys you. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dexter's_Laboratory

  4. Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995)

    This is the series that introduced Harley Quinn. It also established Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman/bruce Wayne for a generation of fans. There was seriousness that had not been seen since the Tim Burton Batman movies. And who didnt love Mark Hamil's Joker. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman:_The_Animated_Series

  5. Rugrats (1991 - 2004)

    Rugrats spawned 13 years of episodes and 3 movies. Not bad for characters that could not talk.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugrats

  6. Doug (1991 - 1994)

    Doug was the left handed hero of kids every where. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doug

  7. Tiny Toon Adventures (1990 - 1995)

    Everyone had their favorite but we know Plucky Ducky Duck was the star.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiny_Toon_Adventures

  8. Pinky and the Brain (1995 - 1998)

    Pinky and the Brain two lab mice. One is a genius and the other is insane. Now what will fry your noodle is deciding which one is which. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinky_and_the_Brain

  9. Animaniacs (1993-1998)

    Yakko, Wakko, and their sister Dot made great comedy hijinks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animaniacs

  10. Dragon Ball Z (1996 - 2003)

    I cheated a little on this one. Many Americans were only introduced to this show on the Cartoon Network though it aired in Japan earlier. This is what kids watched when action was needed. Yes, many episodes were grunting an powering up. There is a lot to like action, suspense, very colorful.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Ball_Z

This time period produced some very good characters and series and I spent many afternoons and saturday mornings enjoying them. I bet you did too.
