The Best Cartoons of the 90s

The best cartoons of the 90s are those the top animated series that ran between the years of 1990 and 2000 and features Nicktoons, Saturday morning cartoons, Disney animated shows, and network cartoon series for both kid and adult audiences. With so many great series airing in the 90s, it's no surprise that these are also some of the best cartoons of all time.

For the most part, these best 90s cartoons are geared towards children. Those growing up in the 1990s undoubtably spent numerous hours watching the likes of "Rugrats," "Doug," "Rocko's Modern Life," and "Animaniacs." Few can deny that classic series like "Dexter's Labratory," "DuckTales," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and "TaleSpin" are some of the best ever for Saturday morning viewing.

Then there's another breed of top 90s cartoons, those suited better for more adult audiences. "South Park" broke the mold with it's raunchiness, as did the likes of "Beavis and Butt-head" and "Family Guy." Two of those three are still popular even today with new episodes airing weekly. All feature more mature jokes, topics children wouldn't really understand and a whole lot of inappropriateness all bundled tightly in animated form.
