Best Cartoons of the 90s

The Top Ten

The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2019, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

I gotta say that was easy. Its an original and came out before Family guy, Futurama, the Cleveland show, American dad and I'm not sure but maybe south park. Family guy, Futurama, the Cleveland show, American dad and south park are still funny though.
THE DARK KNIGHT BEST MOVIE EVER

Probably one of the most iconic cartoons of all times, we realize �The Simpsons� didn't technically get their start in the 90′s, but since it was just a couple weeks shy we felt we could bend the rules a bit. The original run date was December 17, 1989, which was a date that set the bar for all cartoons in the next decade. The Simpsons quality has certainly declined of late, but during the 90′s it was consistently cranking out top notch entertainment, and easily takes the top spot on our list of best 90′s cartoons.

The Simpsons 1987 - 1989 cartoons rocked more, & even the 90s versions of it!
Bart Simpson is cute.

My favourite Seasons Season 7.

Batman: The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero Batman.

Terrific characters & beautiful animation!

Nostalgia critics forth favorite

The perfect depiction of Batman

Animaniacs Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is an American animated comedy television series produced by Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros.

While I was not a child of the 90s, I still had a lot of fun watching the show. The songs are catchy, entertaining, and some are educational. The show is focused around the Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and their sister, Dot. However, there were many more characters with even more memorable pieces. Some lines were just hilarious. It appealed to not only children, but adults too. This cartoon is highly recommended.

One of my favorites! I’ve always been a fan. The Warners are the sweetest little things ever and most of the characters are the funniest things in the world! Love you, Animaniacs! 😘👍

Even though I wasnt born until 2000, my older brothers and I loved watching this show! Definitely my favorite cartoon!

It's hard to hate this show even as an adult.

South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

One of the more irritating and overrated cartoons. But if you like it then fine.

It is very epic and I like Kenny he is very funny

Simply amazing

Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

Best 1990s show ever.

The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. ...read more.

It was the best show ever from 1992 to 2009 it first ended in 2005 but came back in 2009 the best 1990s show ever

Weren't The Powerpuff Boys villains?

I'd prefer The Powerpuff Boys.

Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. ...read more.

When SpongeBob SquarePants premiered on May 1 after the 1999 Kids Choice Awards, Nickelodeon didn't know they had just launched one of the most popular kids cartoons of all times. SpongeBob reached popularity in the middle of its second season, and hasn't slowed down since. The low-budget show proved that you didn't have spend a lot of money to make a lot, and eventually made way for cartoons like �The Fairly Odd Parents� and �Avatar: The Last Airbender�. The show follows a sea sponge (SpongeBob) and his best friend star fish (Patrick) on several of their adventures around their hometown of Bikini Bottom. The show is made to be enjoyed by kids and their parents by including more adult innuendos and soundtracks that feature artists like Wilco, The Shins, Twisted Sister and David Bowie (who appeared in the shows most watched episode of all times). SpongeBob is still going strong and can be viewed on Nickelodeon!

It's creative, hilarious, and well liked among people of all ages. You can watch it over and over and it will still be funny.

This isn't really a 90s show, is it? It was only around for half of 1999 before being the 2000s.

There could also be Mickey a Duck & Donald Mouse.

The Contenders

Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-Head is an American animated sitcom created and designed by Mike Judge. The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge originally aired on Liquid Television.

Beavis and Butt-head first appeared on television on MTV back in 1993. Beavis and Butt-head are two teenage guys who get by obsessing over music videos, contemplating their sarcastic version of life and testing out really bad ideas. The show ended in 97, but it is still considered a pop icon of the nineties.

Archie Comics doesn't do well so far, so Beavis & Butthead could join in.

They should join in several Archie Comics.

I don't like the animation

X-Men: The Animated Series

This show was everything.

This Show Is Awesome

Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful ...read more.

In only could watch a few episodes of it, and since then, I never saw it again. But in these episodes, I learned that Rocko's Modern Life was indeed a hell of a good show! Good characters, crazy plots and a very special point of view towards being an adult. Absolutely love it!

Rocko's Modern Life is obsessive when you start watching it. Once you start, you can't stop.

This show was especially MADE for teenagers during Season 1. Dear God...

Beavis & Butt-Head
Daria

The show often referred to the unfortunate circumstances that usually affect teens as well as references to pop culture, especially music.

Johnny Bravo Johnny Bravo is an American animated television series created by Van Partible for Cartoon Network, and the second of the network's Cartoon Cartoons.

Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic ...read more.

Much like Futurama, Family Guy took everything positive from the cartoons of the early 90′s combined it with the lack of political correctness of the 2000′s and forged it's way through the depths of animated comedies. Family Guy, which first aired on January 31 of 1999, is one of the most iconic cartoons of all time, even producing a spin off show in �The Cleveland Show�. Focusing on the Griffin family, the show follows their day-to-day life in suburbia. The show often features other characters (Cleveland, Quagmire) but most story lines revolve around Peter, Lois, Chris, Meg, Stewie and their trusty talking dog, Brian. Nothing on Family Guys is what it seems, but it seems like everything you�d want to see in a cartoon.

Spider-Man: The Animated Series Spider-Man, also known as Spider-Man: The Animated Series, is an American animated television series based on the Marvel Comic.
Ren and Stimpy The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

Ren and Stimpy, a dog/cat pair, were one of the most neurotic duo's to hit television in the 90′s. When the show first started, it was described as frightening and often violent, which paired with the slow production schedule, caused the shows first director to be fired. When the show came back in 1993, it was re-formatted to suit the masses, and eventually led to four years of success for the show. The duo returned to television briefly in 2003, only to be removed once it began delving into plot-lines that were considered "too adult" for television.

All of the rest of these are crude. I grew up with ten and stimpy! The 90's cartoons were my childhood! There should be more cartoons on here like samurai jack and recess! Not these stupid meaningless badly influential shows! Bring Back these cartoons!

This cartoon is crude you can't even tell what these creatures are supposed to be.

This is by far my favorite 90s cartoon, should be in the top 5
