Top 90’s Cartoons We Wish Would Come Back!

Back when I was a kid, there used to be so many good cartoons on TV, cartoons that kids and only kids enjoyed. Maybe I’m getting old but part of me feels that most of today’s cartoons, if not for the really young, are targeted for the teenagers. Or maybe, it’s just a change of preference? Any 90’s kid here wanna back me up? Whatever the reasons, we at decided to compile a list of some of our favorite and most missed cartoons from the 90’s!

Little Lulu

Aww, who could forget this little girl with her red dress and those pantyhose sticking out! It was such a simple show of Lulu’s everyday antics. ….”Little Lulu, Little Lulu With freckles on your skin. Always in and out of trouble. But mostly always in”…Did I get you singing yet?

Captain Planet

Some of my friends thought this show was kinda corny, personally I thought it was because of this show that I learned to appreciate Mother Nature. I feel like we need more shows like this to educate today’s youth of what’s happening to the world and how they can help preserve it. “Captain Planet…he’s the hero… gonna take pollution down to zero..” Yeah, I know you’re singing with me!

Jem and the Holograms

I used to really love this show! …and I think I started the habit of wearing earrings because of this too. It was like a Barbie-type show that every girl during that time just had to watch! The music was catchy, the characters were fashionable, and there was always a bit of drama and “crime-fighting” so to speak with the Misfits!

Tales from the Cryptkeeper

I personally dreaded this show, but my brothers absolutely loved it. I was a scaredy cat as a kid, in fact I still am, and cartoons like this just didn’t go well with me. Still, it was pretty interesting. It was one of those late Saturday night cartoons we got to watch every now and then.

Gummi Bears

Oh how could you not love these gummi bears? For some reason, they reminded me of the 7 dwarfs.

Dexter’s Laboratory

This was one of the cartoon’s that everyone watched! Dexter was a child genius and somewhat boring, but his annoying sister Didi just made everything so much more exciting!

 Denver the Last Dinosaur

Back then, this was one of the reasons we fell in love with the idea of dinosaurs. My siblings and I wanted one for a pet!…if only it were possible.


I’m not sure if they ever showed an English version of this in the Philippines, but I do remember the Tagalog version. “sa ngalan ng buwan…” (in the name of the moon)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

They’ve remade this a couple of times, but nothing beats the classics. “Leonardo is a party dude!”

Jetsons and Flintstones

Both cartoons had the same concept and storyline, only difference was one was from the past and another set in the future. According to the Jetsons, we’d be flying in space by the 21st century! How I wish they were right.

Akazukin Chacha
They used to show the English version of this on Cartoon Network, it was one of those cartoons that I and my brothers agreed on watching together. It was cute, funny and with just enough action for the boys to enjoy as well. Unfortunately I couldn’t find an English version online, if you find one, do share! I’d love to watch this again.
Tiny Toons
 “They’re tiny, they’re toony, they’re all a little looney…” A lot of us grew up watching Bugs Bunny and his friends, but for a short while, Warner Bros. aired Tiny Toons which featured the nephews and nieces of our favorite characters! It was a more kid-friendly version because the characters were all kids! I LOVED the characters more than I loved Bugs and his crew.
There are still SO MANY GREAT cartoons from the 90’s that we just couldn’t fit them all in one list. Let this just serve as a little remembrance of our childhood days. What other cartoons did you enjoy watching back in the 90’s? Do share them in the comments below, let’s reminisce together yet again!
