Forgotten Cartoons of the 90s: Do YOU Remember Them?

The iconic cartoons from the 1990s can stand with those from any decade, but for every Rugrats or Ducktales, there were ten more series that have been lost to the ravages of time. How many of these forgotten cartoons of the 90s do YOU remember?


The Disney animated series ran from 1994-1996. Gargoyles were creatures that turned to stone during the day and came alive at night, protecting New York City from criminals by wrecking havoc on those who would do evil in their city. In this forgotten cartoon of the 90s we meet Goliath (the leader), Brooklyn, Broadway, Lexington and Bronx.

The Real Ghostbusters

Another forgotten cartoon of the 90s from 1986-1991, The Real Ghost Busters was about a group of people (Professor Egon Spengler and Dr. Peter Venkman) who studied paranormal activities in New York City and were attacked by ghosts to help them cross over into the next world. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis starred in this forgotten cartoon of the 90s.

The Angry Beavers

The Angry Beavers rand from 1997-2001 (though it was recently rebooted with new episodes), followed two beaver brothers who are always getting into trouble and trying to find ways to make money.

The Tick

The Tick, another forgotten cartoon of the 90s from 1994-1996, followed an American superhero who is really well meaning but his intentions often have disastrous consequences and he ends up getting into lots of hilarious situations.

The Ren & Stimpy Show

More of a classic than a truly forgotten cartoon series, the Ren & Stimpy Show ran from 1991-1994 and featured two friends, a chihuahua and a cat, who get into all sorts of crazy things. The truth is, Ren & Stimpy maintains a rabid fanbase today, but it has been sort of lost in the shuffle — overall — of the hullaballoo around all the online noise in the last 20 years or so.

Rocko’s Modern Life

Rocko’s Modern Life was a 1994-1996 cartoon about the life of Rocko (a wallaby) living in Australia talking about his relationships with friends like Heffer or Filbert as well as exploring topics such as puberty.

Invader Zim

Invader Zim was a 2001-2002 cartoon following the titular character, an alien from another planet who is trying to conquer Earth. The show follows his adventures and misadventures before he finally gets caught up in something that forces him home.

What’s with Andy?

What’s With Andy ran for six episodes in 1999 and was a parody of traditional children’s television shows such as Sesame Street.

Hey Arnold!

Hey Arnold! Was an animated series from 1996 to 2004 following the life of 11-year old orphan, who lives in an inner city boarding house with his pesky kid sister Abby and their elderly Grandma Gertie. He has adventures with his friends Gerald, who lives in the boarding house and is a little slow but very sweet, Eugene “Sport” Washington, a boy about Andy’s age who enjoys playing sports.

Bobby’s World

This animated series ran from 1990 to 1997 following Bobby Edwards as he explores life with his family and environment. The show was created by Joe Murray and its animation style is a nod to Ward Kimball’s “moving cels” technique.

The Magic School Bus

This series features Ms. Frizzle, her constant companion Ralphie the bus, along with three humans who travel on field trips in a magical school bus that can change into different types of vehicles such as a train, plane, submarine and bicycle.

Dexter’s Laboratory

Dexter is a boy genius who has an older sister named Dee-Dee and two pet lab rats. In the laboratory, he develops crazy inventions that don’t work out as planned but such mishaps often lead to new discoveries: from shrinking himself so small he can walk on water to creating life in his computer’s memory banks.
