10 Quotes From The 90s Cartoons That Got A Little Too Real In Life

One of my favorite things that came from the 90s are the cartoons. I was born in 1995 and since most of these cartoons were aired a bit later in the Philippines, I still remember watching all of them. However, I am just realizing now how these shows were more than just cartoons to occupy our young selves’ attention for a few hours. As a child, we had no idea these lines said by these characters would eventually be relevant to our lives in the future.

So here are 10 quotes from the 90s cartoons that got a little too real as life progressed.
