Nostalgia. We all love a bit of it, but rather than waste your time talking about scratch and sniff stickers or nap time, we decided to hit you with the big guns: the best '90s cartoons you’ve forgotten ever existed. Forget X-Men, forget Biker Mice From Mars and Batman: The Animated Series, we’re going in deep.
Even if you're more of an '80s cartoon fan, it's safe to say the videos below will blast you right back into the past. Give it a few minutes and you'll be reminiscing about after school, juice boxes, chocolate chip cookies and not having a care in the world other than catching up on the best 'toons Nickelodeon (among other channels) had to offer.
Focusing on the Looney Tunes character Taz, this spin-off hilariously followed the antics of his extended family.
A high school full of sassy monsters, ghouls, and goblins taught by Max Schneider (voiced by Rick Moranis).
The series follows the adventures of an earthworm named Jim who is turned into a superhero by a robotic super suit.
James Bond Jr.
The story of a fictional character described as the nephew of Ian Fleming's masterspy, James Bond. He uses his skills to defeat threats and ensure the safety of the free world.
The Plucky Duck Show
A short-lived (but hilarious) a short-lived spin-off of Tiny Toon Adventures but concentrating attention mainly on Plucky Duck.
The story follows Ace Hart, a dapper German Shepherd (duh) who is a private eye that protects Dog City from a bulldog mob leader called Bugsy Vile.
Life With Louie
he show is based on the childhood of stand-up comedian Louie Anderson, growing up with his family in Wisconsin.
Super Dave: Daredevil for Hire
The series follows Dave, who along with his assistant Fuji, are forced to save the world from the evil villain Slash Hazard.
Bo Jackson, Michael Jordan, and Wayne Gretzky travel the world fighting crime, because, really, WTF could be better than that?
Tom & Jerry Kids
It seems networks couldn't just let Tom & Jerry live on as is, they had to go ahead and remake the same exact show, but with Tom and Jerry as kids — or a kitten and baby mouse, if you will.
Following around a group of rowdy grade schoolers, Recess was the perfect aspirational show for any '90s kid who hated following the rules.
Where On Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?
Beginning as an educational programme, this cartoon ran from 1994- ’99 and featured one of the best theme tunes of all time.
Forget Funny Bones, Skeleton Warriors were the baddest undead heroes to grace TV screens from 1993 – 1994. Extra points if you owned the PS1 game.
SWAT Kats: The Radical Squad
You know these grease-monkeys-come-feline-pilot-aces mean danger by the way they spell their name with a ‘K’. Not as popular than Thundercats, they’re arguably the coolest cat cartoon to grace the 1993-1995 cartoon scene.
Conan The Adventurer
Where Arnie’s big screen version was a barbarian, the animated Conan was strictly an adventurer who mainly spent his time (1992 – 1993) trying to stop huge snake monsters break through into our dimension, with the help of his phoenix sidekick Needle.
Ok, so this 1997 cartoon has a strong Skeleton Warriors’ vibe and the theme song is a bit, erm, crap, but it was a great alternative if the only thing on on the other channel was Noah’s Island.
The Legend Of Prince Valiant
This 1991 – 1993 show is hands down one of the best pieces of television ever created. Better than The Wire.
The New Adventures Of Speed Racer
The less said about the film, the better, it’s all about the 1993-1994 cartoon. Go Speed, go.
Bucky O’ Hare
In 1991, Bucky was the coolest green rabbit in space, which is an unusual title to hold, but true nevertheless.
Spooky, strange, but an essential viewing between 1994 and 1997.
Utter, utter dated tosh, but damn it was good at the time.
Mighty Ducks The Animated Series
The only programme about sports you need.
The Real Adventures Of Johnny Quest
An update on a 1960s classic, the 1990s Johnny Quest show was about old school, globe trotting adventure, sort of like Action Man, but with a teenage protagonist who wasn’t a doll.
Two things the Street Sharks are not is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Biker Mice From Mars. But when you couldn’t get either, a bunch of punchy punk sharks did the trick.
Making interdimensional travel cool by donning a red hat, Mighty Max definitely wasn’t a cynical marketing ploy to get boys to buy their equivalent of the Polly Pocket toys. Nope.
