Most of the kids in the new millennium know exactly how great the cartoons were on television during the 90s. It is just not the same anymore even if everyone is gushing about Rick and Morty, most cartoons are now in films but the cartoon series is not that big anymore. Which is why we will go down memory lane by remembering some the best cartoon series in the 90s, that every person in their 20s and 30s would totally feel nostalgic about.
A well-known Nickelodeon series in the early 90s comes in first and it is entitled as Rugrats. This cartoon series actually had nine seasons and in 2001, they celebrated their 10th anniversary wherein it shows how all the toddlers in the series have grown up. It has been famous for its comedic theme that features toddlers as their protagonists and antagonists at the same time.
For more than five years, its ratings soared really high on the network, until in another show known as Spongebob Squarepants, took over and dominated the network making it the third longest running animated series in Nickelodeon.
Power Puff Girls
Sugar, spice, and everything nice, that is literally what they are made of. From one of the most famous television that provides animated series, Cartoon Network, a group of three super girls, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, were created and they are known as the Power Puff Girls. Originally released in 1998, it is known as one of the most popular cartoon series in the world during at that time.
Throughout their airing time that contained six seasons, they have managed to snag a couple of awards such as six Emmy Awards, and a Kids’ Choice Awards. It is criticized for what it seems to be a little too action packed for kids.
This next one was also extremely popular back in the day, it features a boy genius named Dexter who actually has a secret laboratory in their house and has been known to always keeping his lab off limits to his sister Dee Dee. His adventures have been widely known all over the world that it became Cartoon Network’s most successful animated original series, despite only ended up having four seasons as well as one TV movie.
It is actually Cartoon Network’s highest-rated original series not just in the United States, but all over the world. It is said to be great especially for children, who are now most likely to be in their late teenage years and young adulthood.
Last but definitely not the least is the most popular self-absorbed narcissistic guy named Johnny Bravo. He’s widely known for trying to date women who do not want anything to do with him or his muscles because of his personality. This then ends up always not working out for him. After four seasons, the show has faced tons of criticisms because of is adult humor and some references to pop culture, but it is also what made it incredibly popular over the years.
Surprising Effect of Cartoons on Mental Health?
Turns out that these animated series are not just for some form of entertainment, but it is also something that would help those who have anxiety and other mental issues. It is not just all the fun and bright colors that actually lightens up the mood of anyone that would watch it.
