Best '90s Cartoons Millennials Miss

'90s cartoons were the best!
0

‘90s cartoons were the best. They were funny, the art was epic, they were child-friendly (most of them at least), and they taught us millennials fundamental lessons that made us who we are today. Now, I don’t want to say they are better than today’s cartoons, because I am sure there are some good cartoons out there teaching kids all the lessons they need to know while keeping them occupied until dinner is ready, but ‘90s cartoons were pretty revolutionary.

They were experimental, unique, hilarious, and though millennials certainly didn’t know it, a majority of cartoons, The Ren & Stimpy Show being one of them, were interesting and entertaining enough to entertain our parents who were probably tired of hearing The Barney Theme Song for the millionth time. From Angry Beavers to Powerpuff Girls Beavis and Butthead, ‘90s cartoons had a plethora of options for every type of kid with every type of interest. Even my dad had a special appreciation for a few of the kid’s shows and cartoons I watched over my morning cereal (he loved watching The Ren & Stimpy Show).

So, this list includes all the best '90s cartoons that millennials miss, and where to watch them today, if you are feeling the need to take a trip down nostalgia lane.

CatDog
Pinterest (Edited)

CatDog is pretty legendary as far as '90s cartoons go. In CatDog, these conjoined siblings are complete opposites, one a cat and one a dog, who do everything together, though I'm not sure Cat is always happy about that. Cat, who often finds himself annoyed by his brother, Dog, is always up to something when it comes to his somewhat clueless brother. Dog, who is a bit more happy-go-lucky and oblivious, doesn't usually catch on to Cat's not-so-nice plans, but at the end of the day, they usually come together when dealing with Winslow and the Greaser Dogs.

What made this show so great was the characters, the situations Cat and Dog seemed to get into, and the catchy theme song that I may or may not be humming as I write these words. It was definitely one of the best theme songs of all time, Nickelodeon really hit it out of the park with this wacky show, and, as a millennial, I miss it a ton.

Dates aired

CatDog first aired on April 4, 1998, and aired its final episode on June 15, 2005.

The Angry Beavers
Pinterest (Edited)

The Angry Beavers is another '90s cartoon with two brothers who are very different from one another. These total opposites, Norbert and Daggett Beaver, are constantly encountering wild situation after wild situation. The adjective "angry" being used front and center to describe the brothers is really all prospective watchers needed to know things were going to get interesting when it came to those shenanigans. Norbert, who is a bit angrier and easily agitated, can't handle all of Dagget's pranks and jokes, resulting in several arguments and prank wars.

The show was cute, funny, and had just enough action to keep my parents and me interested! Because Norbert and Dagget are two beavers who are newly entering adulthood, the cartoon is one millennials of all ages miss, myself included.

Dates aired

The Angry Beavers first aired on April 19, 1997, and aired its final episode on June 11, 2001.

Recess
Pinterest (Edited)

Third Street School really has a problem with bullying in the epic '90s cartoon, Recess. What's great, and pretty revolutionary about this '90s show is that the kids decide to band together and fight back against the school's biggest and meanest bullies. T.J, Gretchen, Ashley, Vince, Mikey, and Gus all experienced bullying at one point in time at Third Street School and decided enough is enough. Even though none of them really have much in common, they become close friends that stand up for other kids. Amid the bullying, other various fourth-grade politics come into play and the kids handle them as ethically and soundly as possible, but, most importantly, they handle them as a team.

I know that I learned a thing or two watching Recess, and, as far as '90s shows go, it was a pretty revolutionary show. Imagine being bullied and coming home to watch this cartoon! There are so many lessons within the show that millennials could put to practical use, which is just lovely and I miss it a bunch!

Dates aired

Recess first aired on September 13, 1997, and aired its final episode on January 16, 2006.

The Powerpuff Girls
Pinterest (Edited)

Professor Utonium had absolutely no idea what he was getting himself into when he created these cute, little superheroes. Even though Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles are mere kindergarteners, they pack a mean punch and they don't mess around when it comes to defeating evil and messing up bad guys. Townsville is definitely much safer with these girls around, saving the day.

What was so great about The Powerpuff Girls were the villains. There was such a vast variety of villains such as Mojo Jojo, HIM, and Sedusa. Millennials know this '90s cartoon helped to pave the way for cartoon villains.

Dates aired

The Powerpuff Girls first aired on November 18, 1998, and aired its final episode on March 25, 2005.

X-Men
Pinterest

X-Men: The Animated Series is the animated version of the X-Men universe. As the X-Men, mutated humans with special powers and skillsets, and Charles Xavier try to defeat the always-growing evil in various corporations and the government, they go through a variety of obstacles. Magneto, also a mutant, is another nemesis of the X-Men, since he has decided to fight for evil instead of for good. These superheroes have tight bonds and complicated relationships that come into play throughout the series.

X-Men: The Animated Series set a high bar in the '90s for future animated superhero-based series and still has a cult-following, which I am sure is mostly made up of millennials.

Dates aired

X-Men: The Animated Series aired its first episode on October 31, 1992, and its final episode aired on September 20, 1997.

Daria
Pinterest (Edited)

Daria was as '90s as they come in terms of animated series. A moody, '90s grunge, teenage girl named Daria Morgendorffer tries to survive high school while being the black sheep of her cheery family. Daria's low, monotone voice, self-esteem and confidence issues, and feeling like nobody understands her (excluding her best friend Jane Lane), is what makes Daria a unique and enjoyable '90s cartoon.

Though Daria is a bit more grown-up in terms of content, being more appropriate for teens than kids, it was the '90s animated series that every millennial remembers as one of the best cartoons in the '90s.

Dates aired

Daria first aired on March 3, 1997, and its final episode aired on January 21, 2002.

Courage the Cowardly Dog
Pinterest (Edited)

The name Courage is pretty ironic. Courage the Cowardly Dog is a bit of a scaredy-cat. Courage, however, is constantly put in situations in which he must overcome his extreme fear and help protect his parents who own the farm they all live on. Even though Courage tries to constantly alert his loved ones to the ongoing danger, the lack of human-to-dog communication usually results in Courage getting a bit of a scalding and never receiving the kudos he so rightly deserves for keeping his family and home safe.

What made Courage the Cowardly Dog so great was the humor, unique artistry, and cute, family-loving Courage. Millenials definitely miss this wholesome dog.

Dates aired

Courage the Cowardly Dog aired on February 18, 1996, and aired its final episode on November 22, 2002.

Rugrats
Pinterest

Rugrats is the '90s cartoon that took it back to the early years and showed life, friendships, family, and growth from the point of view of the main characters, all of who happen to be... babies. These babies are not to be underestimated. Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Angelica Pickles, along with other little ones are brave, smart, and caring babies who take on big adventures and are constantly learning and growing through daily life.

Rugrats was an ingenious show in the '90s making millennials everywhere wonder what the life of a baby looked and felt like. Though some creative, unrealistic liberties were taken, Rugrats is the wholesome '90s show this millennial certainly misses.

Dates aired

Rugrats aired its first episode on August 11, 1991, and its final episode aired on August 1, 2004.

Doug
Pinterest (Edited)

Doug is a cartoon about an imaginative boy named Doug Funnie who moved to a new town, Bluffington, with his parents. Doug is 11 years old and is working hard to make friends while going through the typical growing pains most 11-year-olds experience. He has a dog named Porkchop, a best friend named Skeeter Valentine, and a pretty obvious crush on Patti Mayonnaise. All of this would be pretty normal for an 11-year-old, except Doug likes to journal and pretend that he is actually a superhero called Quailman.

Doug made me try liver and onions, Doug's favorite food, which I still regret, but the point is: it was an iconic '90s cartoon that millennials loved enough to try liver and onions.

Dates aired

Doug first aired on August 11, 1991, and aired its final episode on June 26, 1999.

The Simpsons
Pinterest

The Simpsons is a cartoon about the Simpsons family, who experience their share of challenges in Springfield. Homer and Marge have three kids: Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. Bart is a skateboarding troublemaker with a secret soft side, Lisa is a do-gooder who thrives in academia, and Maggie is a baby with impressive skills and awareness. While this group of misfits really have very little in common, and Homer fails at the typical dad stuff, they stick together and do their best.

The Simpsons has been around for ages, but started in 1989, and because an American household must-watch. It was such a commonplace occurrence for the family to gether around the TV for the new episode of The Simpsons in the '90s that there is no doubt millennials miss it.

The Simpsons aired its first episode on December 17, 1989, and aired its final episode on May 23, 2021.

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
Pinterest (Edited)

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters is about three unique-looking monsters who, much like Monster's, Inc. (not released until after the creation of Aaahh!!! Real Monsters) are learning how to scare people as monsters would do. The monsters, named Oblina, Krumm, and Ickis, are just young monsters starting out the scare community and at the monster training school that they go to. So, they tend to get in a bit more trouble than the average monster would during their daily scares.

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters was perhaps the most unique cartoon of the '90s. The art, unique premise, and creative characters made Aaahh!!! Real Monsters an incredibly well-done '90s cartoon, which no doubt inspired many other cartoons following it.

Dates aired

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters aired on October 29, 1994, and aired its final episode on December 6, 1997.

Dexter’s Laboratory
Dexter’s Laboratory

In Dexter’s Laboratory, Dexter is a prodigy with some serious scientific skills, hence "laboratory." Even though Dexter is only eight years old, he is constantly sneaking off to his very hush-hush laboratory to create mind-blowing inventions and creations that eventually help save the world. He even has an arch-enemy, Mandark. However, with his intelligence and his sister Dee Dee's support and help, there's really nothing he cannot do and no tragedy he cannot prevent.

What's was so exciting about Dexter’s Laboratory in the '90s, was that the characters were interesting, the dialogue was often hilarious, the style of the cartoon was beautifully done, and there were side-cartoons like Justice Friends.

Dates aired

Dexter’s Laboratory first aired on April 27, 1996, and its final episode aired on November 20, 2003.

The Wild Thornberrys
Pinterest (Edited)

The Wild Thornberrys is a cartoon about a rather unusual family, with an anything-but-average lifestyle. Eliza Thornberry and her family, who make documentaries for a living, travel the world, and Eliza uses her special power to help animals. Eliza can speak to animals. She uses this power to honor and save animals in need, often having to sneak around in the process with her chimpanzee. While Nigel narrates the documentaries, Marianne (his wife) works behind the camera.

The family dynamics and wholesome content of this '90s cartoon made is a must-watch. Not only that, but it was pretty funny at times, particularly when Nigel did something a bit absent-mindedly like hurt himself for the millionth time. I definitely miss this show, and The Wild Thornberrys Movie.

Dates aired

The Wild Thornberrys first aired on September 1st, 1998, and its final episode aired on June 11th, 2004.

The Ren & Stimpy Show
Pinterest (Edited)

The Ren & Stimpy Show, if we boil it down to the basics, was just a cartoon about a dog and cat. Except, it was so much more than that. This Chihuahua, Ren has a bit of an anger issue. He also doesn't always appreciate his cat friend, who happens to be a bit clueless, Stimpy. While Stimpy considers them best friends, Ren cannot always handle Stimpy's cluelessness, and that results in some interesting encounters between the two, who really are opposites. The two get themselves into crazy scenarios, travel to space, and the whole nine yards.

Before you think this sounds like CatDog, trust me The Ren & Stimpy Show is its own unique show. I've used the word unique in this list a bit more than I would care to admit, but that was what '90s cartoons were. They were so unique. None was too much like the last. The Ren & Stimpy Show, however, has them all beat in the area of uniqueness. If even my parents laughed watching this show, you know it was good.

The Ren & Stimpy Show first aired on August 11, 1991, and its final episode aired on October 20, 1996.

Johnny Bravo
Pinterest (Edited)

In Johnny Bravo, Johnny Bravo is a pretty conceded guy with big har, iconic sunglasses, and greaser-style clothes. Though Johnny Bravo is a muscular, handsome guy, he pretty much scares women away with his overconfidence. As Johnny Bravo gets himself into some crazy situations, various celebrities make appearances as cartoons characters as well, making Johnny Bravo an exciting watch, since you never knew what celebrity would appear next.

Johnny Bravo was a silly, funny, ironic comedy-cartoon in the '90s and early '00s. If you are a millennial, you didn't even need to watch the cartoon to remember it, making it a crucial part of '90s popculture.

Dates aired

Johnny Bravo first aired on July 14, 1997, and its last episode aired on August 27, 2004.

The Magic School Bus
Pinterest (Edited)

In The Magic School Bus, the iconic science teacher Ms. Frizzle takes a hands-on approach to teaching and learning. She takes her students on trips in the magic school bus to show them real-life examples of science, letting them swim with the fishes, explore plant anatomy, and so much more. Ms. Frizzle is the ideal science teacher, who understands that science can be interesting and that hands-on learning is so much better!

The Magic School Bus is perhaps the most '90s of the bunch. Scholastic really hit it out of the park with The Magic School Bus. It was fun, taught me so much as a growing millennial, and there was a cute lizard (a chameleon named Liz). What else does a good '90s cartoon need?

Dates aired

The Magic School Bus first aired on September 10, 1994, and its final episode aired on December 6, 1997. However, there is a new, modern-day reboot.

Ed, Edd n Eddy
Pinterest (Edited)

Ed, Edd n Eddy is a classic late '90s cartoon about three best friends who happen to have the same name. this trio is iconic for the many tricks they attempt to play on others to make more money. As they try to fatten their wallets, fail at figuring out girls, and live their "normal" lives on the cul-de-sac they live on, these 12-year-olds make quite the mess of things.

Ed, Edd n Eddy might have come out in the final year of the decade, but it was, nonetheless, a '90s favorite among millennials, and one I am sure many millennials often reminisce about.

Dates aired

Ed, Edd n Eddy aired its first episode on January 4, 1999, and aired its final episode on June 29, 2008.

Hey Arnold!
Pinterest (Edited)

Hey Arnold! is a cartoon about a boy named Arnold who has a head shaped like a football. Even though Arnold has a football-shaped head, which is clearly unique, that isn't really the point of the show. Instead, Hey Arnold! focuses on the many moral, ethical, and relevant experiences that Arnold encounters as a fourth-grader who lives with his grandparents (Phil and Gertrude) and misses his parents. As Arnold navigates life without them, he makes friends, deals with bullies, and deals with a girl who has a major crush on him but isn't very nice about it, named Helga.

The beautiful ethical moments throughout this before-its-time cartoon, are what made it one of the best '90s cartoons ever and so memorable for millennials.

Hey Arnold! aired its first episode on July 10, 1996, and its final episode aired on June 8, 2004.

Rocko’s Modern Life
Pinterest

Rocko is a wallaby in Rocko’s Modern Life, who is living daily life in his new place after moving from Australia (as a wallaby would). Rocko makes finds some genuine friendships in Filburt (a turtle) and Heffer (a cow), plus he has a dog named Spunky. However, Rocko is overwhelmed by his new life in the states, adulthood, and his rude neighbor, Mr. Bighead (a toad). Rocko is really like most modern-day adults who are trying t survive adulthood in this cartoon that is entertaining for kids and adults alike.

Rocko’s Modern Life was this millennial's favorite '90s cartoon. Hands down, absolutely obsessed with this cartoon as a kid. What makes it so relevant is the topic, of course, but the art and humor were quintessential '90s gold. I miss this show so much.

Pinky, his right-hand mouse, who is not his first pick, tries his best to assist Brain in his evil plans to take over the world, but doesn't quite grasp the plans and ends up being a constant source of frustration for Brain. These lab mice have actually been genetically altered at Acme Labs, where they are tested on, making Brain's plans even more difficult. If only he had a better side-kick!

Pinky and the Brain is a super '90s cartoon with an inventive and unique premise: lab mice taking over the world, or trying to at least. Every millennial knows this show was fun and funny and packed with twists and turns we never saw coming.

Pepper Ann
Pinterest (Edited)

Pepper Ann Pearson is a young girl's hero in this cartoon, Pepper Ann. She is a radical girl who stands up for herself and what she believes in as she goes through the growing pains of middle school at Hazelnut Middle School. Pepper Ann was pretty before its time in the '90s, showcasing a girl who defied the norm, followed her heart, and was really a bit of a feminist in her time. She was constantly speaking out about wrongdoing she experiences as a 12-year-old in middle school, and she still knew how to have a good time and enjoy life in the process.

Pepper Ann was another one of my favorite shows, because I so related to her struggles and mindset. Pepper Ann is another big miss for me and many fellow millennials.

Pepper Ann aired its first episode on September 13, 1997, and aired its final episode on November 18, 2000.

So, he explores, catches Pokémon, and works toward being a Pokémon Master. Ash has a nemesis and a ton of obstacles during the process, but he never gives up hope and never stops working toward his goal.

Pokémon is one of the highest grossing anime franchises of all time, with its start in the '90s. Growing up in the '90s meant getting gold Pokémon cards with your happy meal, carrying Pokémon trading cards everywhere you went, and watching this genius animated series. While Pokémon is still going strong, there is nothing like the oldies, especially when it comes to cartoons.

Pokémon aired its first episode on April 1, 1997, and though many changes have occurred over the years, is still going strong... kind of. The original release was exponentially different than the show many watch today.

Animaniacs

Animaniacs is an extremely comedic cartoon with Dot, Yakko, Wakko, and other various characters that tend to have a knack for chaos. There is always something bonkers happening on the Warne Bros. Studio and the water tower the siblings live in. While they mean well, they are known for the messes they create and bring into the lives of friends and acquaintances. Where the animaniacs go, trust me, chaos follows.

Animaniacs is major '90s popculture. Millennials all know the show, even though the timeframe of the cartoon was short-lived in comparison to many other '90s cartoons. Perhaps, the revivals of the original show or the premise and humor kept it alive. Regardless, Millennials loved and miss this show dearly.

Dates aired

Beavis and Butt-Head is a comedic show about two brothers, known as Beavis and Butt-Head, who comment on '90s popculture from the comfort of their couch. Though their comments are all pretty unintelligent and immature, they do tend to be funny in a slapstick comedy kind of way.

Beavis and Butt-Head is known for the brother's iconic laughs, ridiculous comments, and popculture significance, since the '90s were extremly MTV-centric. Definitely an iconic, if not a bit unrefined, duo.

However, this is only a small part of a ginormous cast of lovable characters. Tiny Toon Adventures follows those characters as they train at Acme Looniversity to become official Looney Tunes! The cast was bright, funny, and a little chaotic, much like Animaniacs.

Though Animaniacs ended up acting as the cartoon's replacement, it was a lovely '90s show with iconic characters, bright and happy art, and nonstop action.

Balloo, in a way, unofficially adopts Kit, making this show unbelievably sweet and heartwarming. Together they encounter many dangerous adventures, where they work together as a team to pull through.

As far as the '90s go, I am not sure a cartoon got sweeter than this. Kit and Balloo are missed by this millennial big time.

Spider-Man: The Animated Series is the animated story of Peter Parker and his evolution into Spider-Man.

The Spider-Man franchise was huge in the '90s and early '00s, remember Tobey McGuire and Kirsten Dunst kissing upside down in the rain? This animated series was a huge part of that. It even maintains a pretty big following to this day!
