20 ’90s Cartoons You Forgot You Loved as a Kid
Remember waking up on Saturday morning and eating about five bowls of Trix while you watched cartoons and being soooo mad at your mom for vacuuming while you were trying to watch your show? What was she trying to do, make us play outside?
Here are 20 cartoons we loved as kids, but sort of forgot about because we sadly can’t sit around all day remembering every episode of ‘Taz-Mania’ we ever watched.
In case you don’t remember what ‘Hammerman’ was about, the incredibly lengthy opening song will detail the entire back story for you. (It has something to do with magic shoes and fighting crime, we think.) We’re not sure if the fact that our parents let us watch this is a sign that they really loved us or really hated us.
‘James Bond, Jr.’
We were definitely late to school on more than one occasion because of this show. Ironically enough, we have also never made it all the way through an entire actual James Bond movie.
‘New Kids on the Block’
Oh the cringing that just happened from watching this is painful. Cleraly mom was vacuuming through this show to spare her sanity. Also, whatever happened to Biscuit?
‘Attack of the Killer Tomatoes’
You’re a lucky person if the theme to this show doesn’t get stuck in your head every time you go grocery shopping.
‘Eek! The Cat’
‘Eek! The Cat’ was amazing. But of course it would be, since it was created by Savage Steve Holland, who made two of our favorite childhood movies — ‘Better Off Dead’ and ‘One Crazy Summer.’
‘Tom & Jerry Kids’
You may be surprised to find that it only takes one second to remember all the words to this song.
‘Taz-Mania’!!! We don’t know how our brains totally blocked out that weird Taz phase from the early ’90s (seriously, did they run out of Looney Tunes characters to give their own show to?), but it’s all rushing back now.
‘Bobby’s World’ made stand-up and ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge Howie Mandel a hit with kids. Which was probably torture since he’s a germaphobe. This show was catnip to any kid who desperately wanted to be an official member of the Fox Kids Club.
‘Cadillacs and Dinosaurs’
Remember ‘Cadillacs and Dinosaurs’? It only aired for 13 episodes, but it took place in the future…A FUTURE WITH DINOSAURS!!! And also a future with classic Cadillacs because, uh, they look cool?
‘Samurai Pizza Cats’
Here’s an interesting fact. The guy singing the theme song to this ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ cash-in was a little drunk when they recorded it. Classic quality children’s programming, right here.
