10 Best 90s Kids’ Shows (You Should Watch Again)

The nineties were a golden era of kids’ TV, as we’ve pointed out before. Here are a few of those shows worth revisiting.

Dinosaurs

Yes, the “Not the mama!” schtick can be a little grating. But this show has top-quality puppet work and is probably the only time you’ll see anthropomorphic dinosaurs tackle issues like the objectification of women, Indigenous rights, and corporate crime. All while Earl promises to eat wise-talking rodents who live in the freezer and threatens to throw his mother-in-law into a tar pit, of course.

Where to watch: Disney+

Animaniacs

For a show about a group of wacky kids who are crazy to the max, it sure taught us a lot about state capitals, the countries of the world, and formal etiquette. Well, maybe not the last one.

Where to watch: Google Play

Chip ’n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers

Ch-Ch-Chip and Dale! Back in the forties, they existed solely to annoy Donald. But by the nineties, they were rescuing kids.

Where to watch: Disney+

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

This show had way creepier stories than Goosebumps. And you’ll get to see the early roles of so many Canadian film stars.

Where to watch: Hoopla

Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Keep your creepy reboot, Netflix. We still love Melissa Joan Hart and all her wacky hijinks.

Where to watch: CBS All Access, Apple TV

Rocko’s Modern Life

The only show we know that centres on a wallaby. Also, this show is worth a watch as an adult just so you can catch all the rude jokes and innuendo that you missed as a kid.

Where to watch: Apple TV

Tale Spin

In the nineties, every Disney character had to be reinvented with cool new jobs. But it did make us wonder how Baloo went from enjoying the bare necessities to piloting a beat-up old plane and delivering packages.

Where to watch: Disney+

X-Men

Here’s our position: the animated show X-Men did a better job adapting the comics than the movies ever have. Stop trying to do the Phoenix Saga, Hollywood. It’s already been done to perfection. Also, who has the most epic theme song ever stuck in their head now?

Where to watch: Disney+

Courage the Cowardly Dog

Fan theory: all the monsters Courage encounters are really just a small, nervous dog’s wildly imaginative take on real life.

Where to watch: Hoopla, Apple TV

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Sometimes, the thing you were obsessed with turns out to be . . . well, let’s say not worth being obsessed with. Sure, the Ninja Turtles cartoon has some great moments, like the creation of Beebop and Rocksteady, or the introduction of Casey Jones. And the first movie was fun. But the second was sucky. And then they had a TV special where it was rock opera about . . . saving music? And then a second one with songs about . . . pizza? Look, sometimes the dumb things we loved as kids are fun to revisit.

Where to watch: DVD, VHS, YouTube
