Power Ranking The Cartoons Of The '90s

The ’90s was one of the greatest cartoon eras ever. The ’80s were full of classics so the next decade had a lot to compete with. You might be surprised to see which cartoons you forgot about, so take a click down memory lane.

19. Tiny Toons

We're tiny, we're toony, we're all a little loony.

18. Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Pinterest:
First of all, this was the most ridiculously named cartoon ever, but it totally worked.

17. Batman: The Animated Series

The awesome thing about this movie was that it pulled from the live action movies and incorporated elements into the cartoon as well.

16. Ren And Stimpy

This cartoon was actually quite disgusting and while it was a cartoon, it wasn't suitable for all age levels. It was a groundbreaking cartoon on different levels and might actually gross you out if you went back and watched it.

15. Gargoyles

I don't think 'Gargoyles' got the attention it deserved. It only ran for three seasons but for those who watched it, it was definitely a favorite.

14. Animaniacs

The great thing about 'Animaniacs' was that kids were learning during the show without even realizing it. This was before the educational cartoon was a trend. I can name all the countries in the world because of this show and their amazing mnemonics.

13. Arthur

'Arthur' is one of the longest running cartoons ever. Born in 1996, it's still kicking today and that is something special.

12. Pokémon

I never watched 'Pokémon' but I have to pay respect where respect is due. This show was a huge deal for a lot of children and was one of the biggest fads of the '90s.

11. Bobby's World

This was by far, the best work by Howie Mandel ever.

10. The Magic School Bus

Education mixed with vibrance and just the right amount of wackiness made for an amazing cartoon. We all wanted a teacher like Miss Frizzle.

9. X-Men

I mean, it's 'X-Men.' Can't beat that.

8. Captain Planet

This show was the cheesiest ever, and I love it. We've all combined our earth powers together with our friends and it has spawned some hilarious spoofs.

7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

There are so many adaptations of the original and that's okay with me because this is one of the greatest and most loved cartoons of all time.

6. Duck Tales

We've all day dreamed about diving into gold coins, don't lie.

5. Rocko's Modern Life

Rocko was way ahead of his time in the cartoon world. Now that we're older we're seeing all the crazy vulgar things that were hidden in the show that we never would have picked up on as kids. I don't know if this is disgusting or awesome.

4. Hey Arnold!

'Hey Arnold!' was flat out amazing. The characters were perfect in their own way, and we learned that Grandpa was a little more gross than we ever would have realized as a child.

3. Rugrats

There wasn't one child who didn't watch 'Rugrats'. Period. You adored Chuckie, you hated Angelica, you wanted a twin like Phil and Lil, and Tommy was your hero.

'Recess' is one of the greatest cartoons of all time and had some very well written characters despite being a cartoon.

1. Doug

You can't say one thing negative about 'Doug'. The characters were tremendous, and the cartoon had a lasting affect on all those who watched it. If someone asked you to sing 'Banging On A Trash Can' right now, you could probably recite all the words. Not to mention Quailman is one of the best Halloween costumes of all time.
