List RulesVote up your favorite Disney TV series that aired in the 1990s.

How many of you remember racing home from school in the '90s to see what was on The Disney Channel? 1990s Disney shows were the best, and now, you can take a stroll down memory lane by reminiscing about all of the great shows and Disney sitcoms you grew up with and molded you into the TV aficionado you are today. 

Perhaps you were a big fan of The Famous Jett Jackson and his exploits as an action hero on a fictional TV show. Do you remember when Britney Spears and Destiny's Child made guest appearances on the show? The '90s were truly a magical time. Maybe you preferred Disney game shows. Nickelodeon may have had Double Dare, but The Disney Channel had Off the Wall. There was certainly no shortage of programming, and that's not even taking into account all of the Disney Channel original movies. One thing is certain: you can impress anyone at a party by mentioning that Ryan Gosling got his start on Mickey Mouse Club.

Put on your Mickey Mouse ears and get ready to vote on the best 1990s Disney Channel TV series. All of these shows premiered on the channel at some point between 1990 and 1999 and now you have the power to vote on your favorites.
