List Rules Vote up the shows from Fox Kids that you forgot all about until just now.

For a whole generation of youngsters, Fox Kids TV shows provided hours of entertainment every day after school and every Saturday morning. We all remember Batman: The Animated Series, X-Men, Power Rangers, and so many others. Yet among the classics there were a bunch of old Fox Kids shows that you probably don't remember, but probably entertained you as an elementary-schooler.

Wolverine and Jubilee fought against evil, but did you remember the Big Guy and Rusty? Batman solved mysteries, but what about Droopy Dog? Did you remember that before kids became fans of Animaniacs, most were Tazmaniacs?

Check out this list of some of the weirdest and entertaining Fox Kids shows you forgot about until now.

Taz-Mania

Starting back in 1991, kids were treated to seeing the incoherent whirling-dervish Taz engage in sitcom-like hijinks with his normal-by-comparison family. Someone looked at Taz's animalistic confrontations with Bugs Bunny in classic Looney Tunes cartoons and thought "let's make him a bell hop that has a Bing Crosby-impression for a father." Despite its weirdness, Taz-Mania successfully ran for 65 episodes!

Droopy, Master Detective is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list 13 Awesome Fox Kids Shows You Totally Forgot You Used to Watch

Along with the "take ____ and put it in the future" trope, there was the "take _____ and make it into a detective show." Droopy, Master Detective spun off from the successful Tom & Jerry Kids show and featured the titular Droopy solving crimes with his son, Dripple. While Droopy's slow, depressing cadence is funny, it didn't prove to be a lasting joke. The show was cancelled after a single season.

Eek! The Cat

The well-meaning-yet-anxious Eek got into trouble for five seasons, yet his show isn't given the same renowned praise as other Fox Kids shows. Even though Eek's motto was "It never hurts to help!" his selflessness often got him into downright painful situations getting smashed, smacked, or blown up (like in his show's intro.) The show also had a lot of celebrity voice cameos with folks like "Weird Al" Yankovic, Fabio, and William Shatner.

The Pirates of Dark Water is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list 13 Awesome Fox Kids Shows You Totally Forgot You Used to Watch

This episodic seafaring adventure may have aired full seasons on ABC, but the original mini-series got its start on Fox Kids. The Pirates of Dark Water followed Ren and his ragtag crew (it's always a ragtag crew, isn't it?) as they collect the 13 Treasures of Rule in order to stop his world from being consumed by the ominous Dark Water. The show had great character models and an imaginative story, but the show was canceled before our heroes were able to obtain all 13 treasures. Fun fact, the original miniseries had the monkey-bird, Niddler, voiced by Roddy McDowall.
