The folks over at Watch Mojo compiled a list of what they think are the top 10 cartoons of the 1990s. Do agree with them? Disagree? What other cartoons would you put on this list? Let us know in the comments section below!
No Animaniacs and no Gargoyles, I call foul!
Agreed. The fact that Gargoyles didn’t make it, but Pokemon did smacks of a loaded ballot.
Gargoyles was my all time favorite cartoon as a kid
i agree Gargoyles should have been among the top 5 at least for the first two seasons. something about an animated series being on ABC primetime slot, yeah you know they meant business with it.
Gargoyles was a great show, one of the best, for the first two seasons. After watching the third season, I can understand why it was cancelled.
Uhm. South Park. Enough said.
Oh wow.. It DID come out in ’99 o_O
I was 10 when 1990 hit, so I think I was in the between the 80s & 90s. In fact, I remember more of the Top 10 Cartoons from the 1980s than the 90s.
Dude I am the same age. I see these list top of the 80’s,top fo the 90’s and I always feel somewhere between.
Freakazoid and The Tick would have to make my list.
Pokemon was not the first anime popular in the U.S. That would be Astro Boy.
Agreed. I was thinking I could name probably a dozen animes that were popular in the US before Pokemon. Astroboy, Macross/Robotech, Voltron, Speed Racer, Sailor Moon, Transformers, Dragonball, Dragonball Z, Ranma 1/2, etc. All were in the US and popular before Pokemon. And that’s not counting other series that held huge cult followings but weren’t as mainstream, such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Kenshin, all 800million different gundam animes(an obvious exaggeration). Pokemon was about 30 years to late for the title of first.
Someone must have had a mad thing for Beast Wars. AFAIK it was never syndicated in the UK, and the fact that no-one mentioned TMNT or Toxic Crusaders or even something like Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors tells me this is just a ‘personal favorites’ list.
ummm… transformers beast wars sucked, should have includded Gargoyles, or recess or even hey arnold or rugrats….
No love for Pinky & The Brain? *sigh*
Also echoing the call for Gargoyles. It was a total departure from most of Disney’s works and very good in terms of story, animation, and vocal talent.
I agree Gargoyles should have been on this list. The Tick was awesome, Tiny Toons was brilliant. Eek the cat was a good one also.
I think we need more than 10 places to be fair with cartoons
South Park, The Tick, and Exo-Squad…
Dragon Ball / Z was the first anime to get a WORLDWIDE following. Pokemon was solid but DB and DBZ were waaaay more established by then.
Gargoyles. Seriously people… and you call yourself geeks. Do you have any idea how many Star Trek Alumni voiced characters in that series? Not to mention the awesome animation, writing, characters, and message.
no tmnt, carman san diego, rocko, or garfield?
So.. they had BeastWars & barely mention the awesomeness that is ReBoot? How can you skip the show that made computer lingo cool? It’s the whole reason why I got into IT & introduced me to CGI.
you picked beast wars over animaniacs, freakazoid, dragon ball z, daria, the tick, pinky and the brain, gargoyles, liquid television, the maxx, the head, and aeon flux? boo.
I completely agree that Gargoyles and Anamaniacs are missing from the list and should have made it over a couple of these that I didn’t ever watch or really didn’t hear of…. Mostly a good list though.
Gargoyles is the best cartoon of all time. For it to not make this list is just ridiculous. Reboot definitely should have been on there instead of Beast Wars as well. Overall decent list though but Gargoyles is a huge omission.
i pretty much agree with all the others on what should be added here and then throw in rocko’s modern life, aaahh!! real monsters, 2 stupid dogs, cow and chicken, and not to forget bobby’s world
I haven’t seen the video, but can someone tell me if Pirates of Dark Water is on there?
The absence of Gargoyles, Pinky and the Brain, and Animaniacs, and the presence of Pokemon and Beast Wars is why I will not be linking this video to other people.
Bobby’s World, Rugrats, Animaniacs, The Tick, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Powerpuff Girls, Southpark, Futurama was 1999 as well.
