25 90’s Cartoons You May Remember

Cartoons have been around for ages but there was something about 90’s cartoons that hit the spot. In many ways, it was the golden age of cartoons with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman, Animaniacs, and many more. However, with all the great cartoons at the time, many went unnoticed and forgotten. Here are the 25 90’s Cartoons You May Remember.

Rocko's Modern Life

Rocko’s Modern Life was perhaps one of Nickelodeon’s edgier cartoons at the time. Airing between 1993 to 1996, it featured various animals living in the same neighborhood, dealing with their mundane life. When the show canceled, a big portion of the same team went on to create a much more popular cartoon: SpongeBob SquarePants.

Kids with cable TV (and parents nice enough to let them watch MTV) may remember the cartoon, Daria, a cartoon about a cynical and antisocial teenager with a whole lot of angst. For the rest of us, Daria was too out of reach and easily forgotten.

Gargoyles

Because of its darker tone and complex stories, Gargoyles was loved by a very specific group of kids but didn’t really fly with many others. However, it had a lot of similarities to the much more popular Batman: The Animated Series.

Beetlejuice

Based on the movie of the same name, Beetlejuice was mostly a big hit, airing for four seasons, but it was also one of those cartoons parents felt uneasy about for its dark and gruesome themes.

Taz-mania

Remember in the 90’s, when Warner Bros. decided to make a bunch of spin-offs from Looney Tunes? For some reason, it seemed like a smart idea to give a non-verbal character like the Tasmanian Devil a spin-off, and behold, we got Taz-Mania. Thankfully, it only lasted one season but somehow kept showing up in re-runs.
