How many of you are 80s babies? How many of you are 90s kids? I’m both! I was recently thinking back about cartoons of the 90s. When I was a kid my television was basically stuck on Nickelodeon. OMG, so many entertaining shows to watch; so many good memories. My favorite show happened to be “Space Cases”, which is where my love for Science Fiction originated. If you don’t remember “Space Cases” is because it only lasted about two seasons. It was a show about a couple of teenagers from different planets; including Earth and Saturn, two Earth instructors, and a robot named Rosie living on a ship in space. One recognizable character of the show was Walter Jones aka Black Ranger from the original “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers”; another favorite show of mine. He played Harlan Band from Earth.
I really miss 90s cartoons honestly. Another cartoon I watched was Doug. Yes, Doug was annoying as hell and a straight nutter but nevertheless, it was a very entertaining show. I liked the fact that they used different colors to represent the children. Which is so needed now, but that’s another post. How about the “Magic School Bus”, you cannot tell me that show wasn’t the stuff, lol. Just thinking about it now makes me smile. You actually learned something from that show. Where is that now? Well, I don’t know because the only cartoon I watch now is “Courage the Cowardly Dog” and all I can watch are season 1 reruns because the show was canned and they haven’t put seasons 2 and 3 on DVD. I encourage anyone to give it a glance, even if it’s one episode, you might like it.
I feel very fortunate to have grown up in the 90s because 90s television was great. I’ve tried watching someone of the stuff they have on now but it just doesn’t compare; maybe because I am an old fart, lol. Not really! Here’s my list:
Power Rangers (non cartoon)
Rocko’s Modern Life (AWWWWW)
Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
Pinky and the Brain
The Angry Beavers
Courage the Cowardly Dog
SpongeBob Squarepants (my mom hates him)
Magic School Bus
Gullah Gullah Island (non cartoon)
Duck Tales (I still remember the song)
Chip N Dale
The Wild Thornberrys
