The Best Cartoons Of The '90s
The best cartoons of the '90s are those top animated series that ran between the years of 1990 and 1999 and feature Nicktoons, Saturday morning cartoons, Disney animated TV shows, and network cartoon series for both kid and adult audiences. With so many great series airing in the early and late '90s, it's no surprise that these are also some of the best cartoons of all time.
For the most part, these cartoons are geared towards children. Those growing up in the 1990s undoubtedly spent numerous hours as kids watching the likes of Rugrats, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, and Animaniacs. Few can deny that classic series like Dexter's Laboratory, DuckTales, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and TaleSpin are some of the best ever for Saturday morning viewing.
Then there's another breed of '90s cartoons that were not kids cartoons, and are better suited 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.
