Everyone, at some point in their life, has loved cartoons. For many, their childhoods were shaped by bright colors, zany comedy, and thrilling heroics. There are some viewers that still love cartoons today. And with such a wide variety in terms of what animation can show and the stories it can tell, it's easy to see why.
Much like most aspects of pop culture in the 1990s, cartoons of that decade are often thought of as the very best by the kids who grew up then. The 90s saw the rise of superhero cartoons from the likes of Marvel, DC, and even independent comic companies. Even those based on entirely original ideas found success.
But with companies like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, the decade also saw a mass wave of fantastically hilarious animated shows as those two studios knew how important this style of entertainment could be to children everywhere. It's no wonder that there are many adults today who would defend even the most ridiculous cartoons of the 90s simply because of how much they meant to them at the time.
There have obviously still been great cartoons released since the 90s came to an end. But there's something so special (and in the cases of some, disturbing) about 90s cartoons. And if one didn't grow up watching these, they might find it difficult to name many of them.

With the rise of "The Simpsons" came other animated shows that weren't created for kids. The difference between this show and "The Simpsons," however, is pretty astounding. It follows four close friends in their small, closely-knit town in Utah as they go on hilarious misadventures. The characters of the show swear like sailors and the show is packed to the brim with crude, over-the-top humor. The show is still going and constantly receives backlash.

What show is this family from?
Another show that seemed to be born from the success of "The Simpsons," this show also focused on a dysfunctional family. But the humor here is a bit darker. The father, Peter Griffin, is certainly as dim-witted as Homer Simpson, but many jokes also come from his insensitivity. And unlike the baby in "The Simpsons," Stewie Griffin talks quite a lot, though most often to the dog, Brian, who can talk himself. The show has become famous for featuring cutaway jokes that don't have anything to do with the main plot of the episode. What is the name of this series?
What Disney show is this group of friends from?
Many Disney shows of the 1990s may have focused on their existing properties like Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck, but this show was something original.

What is the name of this show?

What was the name of this funny cartoon?
One thing that many cartoons of the 1990s had was the inclusion of a dumb character. They were often the funniest as their stupidity was something kids took tremendous joy in watching.

This hero has no memory of his life before he began fighting crime and is eccentric to say the least. He has super strength and is essentially invulnerable, but is a satire of most superheroes.
