- Page 1

We all grew up watching cartoons as kids, but who says we need to stop once we hit adulthood? Things that were once awesome often still are, and plenty of us even have our own kids to introduce to the shows we loved! In particular, these 10 cartoons are just as great now as they were when we were kids.

Batman: The Animated Series

Still considered one of the best adaptations of the Caped Crusader's adventures, the show has colorful villains and cool gadgets for the kids, and mature themes and surprisingly intelligent storylines for adults.

Animaniacs

The Warner siblings did their best to teach kids about things like state capitals and the difference between a good idea and a bad idea, but what we really remember are the adult jokes like this...

Avatar: The Last Airbender

A show that's colorful and silly but also serious and action-packed, Avatar: The Last Airbender isn't just a great show for kids and adults to enjoy together, but one of the best shows of all time.

Reboot

One of the earliest fully 3D-animated shows of the 90s, Reboot was a combination of then-awesome visuals, a different and interesting world (which takes place entirely in a computer), and storylines that took some pretty serious turns. Great then, and great now.

Seriously, there's even more great shows that you can show your kids...

Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

Harry Anderson was known for his iconic role on Night Court as well as his recurring role on Cheers.

13 Secrets From The Set Of 'Married With Children' That'll Make You Believe In Love And Marriage

Married...With Children is one of those shows that felt different from all the rest. Every other sitcom was trying to put forward this false homage to the happy family, but honestly, that's not the way the real world was. There is always a little bit of conflict in the real world. We don't all get along all the time and yes, sometimes we can be a little inappropriate. The only family that seemed to give us a more accurate representation of family life was the Bundys. Al Bundy was a little bit rough around the edges, and Peggy was
