Sorry kids it’s all about your parents cartoons this week! Mom and Dad are busy reliving the days of their youth huddled around the television set on a Saturday morning eating ‘sugar cereal’ and watching our favorite cartoons as we try to pick our favorite to post online as our cartoon character facebook pic. For some reason it gives us all a warm fuzzy feeling to flashback to those simpler times of our youth and we’re taking you with us.
Here are our all-time favorite cartoon characters from the 1990’s the era age of The Rugrats, The Muppet Babies, Pinky and the Brain, The Simpsons, and so many more timeless cartoons.
1. The Simpsons
I know that today’s kids feel like they discovered The Simpsons, but the series has been entertaining families since 1989. Sorry to say that your lame mom or dad probably sported a Bart Simpson t-shirt to high school back in the 90s. Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, and Maggie have been wreaking havoc on Springfield for a full generation with no signs of stopping anytime soon.
2. The Rugrats
The Rugrats were busy trying to break out of the playpen from 1991 – 2004. Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica and the crew were busy showing kids just trying to make their way in a grownups world. No group of kids was stuck in diapers for such an entertaining period of time!
3. The Animaniacs
Animaniacs is one of those shows that has proven the test of time. What was fun and funny back in the 90’s is now being used to teach our kids in elementary schools. My 10-year-old came home with homework this week — he was assigned the task of watching the Animaniacs teach him about the world’s explorers. Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, are now entertaining a whole new generation of cartoon fanatics.
Which was your favorite cartoon character of the 1990’s?
