The 30 best 90s cartoons you wish your kids knew

These occasionally (who are we kidding…often) eccentric ’90s cartoons still hold a place in our hearts!

Ren & Stimpy were not model citizens, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters made you question your local trash dump and CatDog may have raised some confusion about animals in general…and we know you’re still trying to remember the names of all the other ’90s classics!

In some cases, these beauties may need to be accessed via DVD or YouTube, but several picks can be seen late night on Teen Nick/recorded starting at 12am (CatDog, Rugrats, Doug, Hey Arnold! and more). Classic Nickelodeon cartoons can also be seen anytime on Nick Reboot, and Cartoon Network favorites can be found on Boomerang.

Be sure to also check out our other favorite cartoons from the '90s and beyond! (Think Popeye and The Pink Panther.)
