We’ve rated the best and worst cartoons of the 90s

Oh, to be a kid again in the golden age of animation. Let’s take a trip down memory lane at some of our favorite (and least favorite) cartoons of the 90s.

The worst: Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain

Already a spin-off of the Animaniacs, the original Pinky and the Brain was a great cartoon about a mad genius and an idiot, locked together in a cage, escaping every night to – you guessed it – try to take over the world. Why mess with that dynamic by adding another idiot to the mix in Elmyra, arguably the worst character in the Tiny Toon universe?

Captain Planet and the Planeteers

Hey, here’s an idea: let’s gather a cast of the most politically correct teens that work together to summon the most useless superhero of all. Even the slightest hint of pollution or sludge would render Captain Planet useless. And the ring powers? What the hell was that one kid going to do with the “Heart” ring?

Disney’s Doug

Important to remember here that we’re not talking about Nickelodeon’s Doug, but the shell of what it became after Disney bought it in 1996. Let’s be honest, Doug wasn’t exactly pushing the limits before Disney bought it, but they took it to whole other levels of boring after the sale.

The best: X-Men

Considered by some to be the gateway drug to adult nerdhood, X-Men was as deep and dark as children’s cartoons got in the 90s. Sure, it was campy at times, but watching a dysfunctional group of mutants fight just about everyone and deal with the whole “normal vs. weird” thing society had against them was about all you could ask for.
