When you think of your favorite cartoons that you wouldn't want your 3-year-old niece watching, what comes to mind? South Park definitely made the cut for our 90s cartoons with adult humor list. South Park was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. This funny 1990s cartoon debuted in 1997 and is still on the air today. South Park even won five Primetime Emmy Awards.

Other good 90s adult cartoon shows like The Simpsons and Futurama also appear on this list of 1990s cartoon shows with adult humor because we just can't get enough of Homer and Bender (who doesn't love a drunk robot?). Beavis and Butt-head was a favorite 1990s adult cartoon show that aired on MTV from 1993-1997. It was later brought back for one season in 2011.
