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

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

2 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.

This I'm obsessed with this show such great characters I love tweek

3 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!

Unlike any other Cartoon back then.

4 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 23 years, and is beginning its 13th season... read more

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.

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

This is such a nice cartoon funny and entertaining Phil has wit

I liked this growing up as a kid would always watch it when it was on a very long time ago

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

I love this show this is one of my favourites
it is the powerpuff girls not powerpuff boys I think you got confused with RowdyRuff Boys.

Vote this for the number 1 best 90s series! Also, good list FandomStuck!

7 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.

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

They should join in several Archie Comics.

8 Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! is an American animated television series created by Craig Bartlett that aired on Nickelodeon from October 7, 1996 to June 8, 2004. The show centers on a fourth grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents in an inner-city boarding house.

This is a great show I love watching this it's entertaining and the characters are well developed

This is too low on this list I used to really love this after school

Hey Arnold has a good sense of humour especially with Sid and sticky they're a comedy duo

9 Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory is an American comic science fiction animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network, and the first of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The show is about a kid scientist named Dexter that has a sister named Dee Dee that keeps breaking into his lab.
10 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.

This cartoon had many different tropes and character styles parodying those of the last century. It was a good thing thing it came out in the 90s as a last hoorah to the 20th century and 2nd millennium in general.

The Contenders
11 Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

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...

13 Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation.

18 X-Men: The Animated Series
19 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.

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.

The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban... read more

This show was my only favorate on cartoon network I love this I was twelve when it came to air and was captivated by it, it was so fun and hilarious thanks to big ed who was so random and daft double d is obviously my favorate character.. this show is still popular with me I still enjoy watching it.. I'm gutted that I never got to see the movie

No its not the best cartoon ever, you are stuck in nostalgia.

Childhood cartoon might have had it in the Cartoon Network annual I had years ago. But in the end of the day Ed, Edd n Eddy was really a stupid show. But if I was a kid again I'd watch.
