What Was The Most Popular Cartoon The Year You Were Born?

Picture this: it's Saturday morning, you hop out of bed, pour yourself a bowl of cereal, and plop down in front of the TV. What was the most popular cartoon? No matter what that answer is, all is right with the world as your favorite characters scurry across the screen. But unfortunately, Saturday morning cartoons are a thing of the past.

Oftentimes, the shows we watched as kids help guide the way we view the world, and more often than not, those television shows are cartoons. Scooby-Doo helped viewers think critically; Schoolhouse Rock! taught grammar, politics, and math; and Rugrats reminded kids to keep using their imagination.

Considering the huge role cartoons have the potential to play in young minds, seeing the cartoon that was most popular the year you were born can be eye-opening. Perhaps that cartoon was one of your favorites years later; maybe not. But one thing is for sure - these cartoons put a stamp on pop culture.
