A Real 90s Kid Can Match These Characters To The Cartoon. Can You?

If you were a 90s kid, you grew up with the best cartoons. It is just a fact. Shows these days simply do not compare.

In fact, the era starting in the late 80s through the 90s is sometimes referred to as the "renaissance age of animation."  Most of the large media companies, like Disney, Warner Bros., and Nickelodeon, revamped their animation departments and gave us some amazing shows.

And just because a series is animated does not mean the content is dumbed down. The cartoons of this era were often complex and well-written. Many of them could get pretty dark at times and sometimes, they addressed serious subject matter.  Even adults could, and still do, enjoy watching them. The cartoons of the 90s practically shaped an entire generation. (Though looking back, it is surprising that our parents let us watch some of them).

We all had our favorite network that we liked to watch on Saturday mornings. Maybe you were a Cartoon Network kid, a Disney kid, or preferred the shows on Nickelodeon. But a real cartoon fan will be able to match all these characters to the correct 90s show. Can you? Take the quiz and find out!
