Those of us who grew up in the '90s were lucky to experience the golden age of cartoons. While a lot of the cartoons of the '80s were basically very long toy commercials, the '90s gave us some of the zaniest, coolest, and most fun cartoons we could have ever asked for.
There were so many amazing cartoons, that there's no way we could possibly include them all, but here are some of the opening credits we memorized while waiting for our favorite shows to start.
So just sit back and relax, you'll laugh 'til you collapse, we're Animaniacs! Soon a whole new generation will get to experience this show, since Steven Spielberg announced it would be coming back to TV.
Based on the massively popular book series by Brian Jacques, this show brought the characters we loved to life.
Don't even pretend like you don't remember every single word to this theme song.
SWAT Kats: Radical Squadron
Probably the darkest show Hanna-Barbera ever made, SWAT Kats was one of the coolest '90s shows that hardly anyone today remembers.
Biker Mice From Mars
A show about motorbike-riding alien mice sounds completely insane, but as kids we didn't even question it.
Aladdin The Series
The show that let us follow Aladdin's adventures after Return of Jafar might be one of the best TV shows Disney has ever made. No matter how old I am I will always get excited when I hear "Arabian Nights."
Freakazoid! is what you get when you combine the people who made Animaniacs with the people behind Batman: The Animated Series (hold that thought). Makes sense that a show with those two influences would have a almost equally iconic opening.
We all wished our imaginations could come to life like Bobby's did.
Spooooooooooon! Hard to believe a theme song where the only words are "Dot dweee dot dot dot dwee-dow" could be so catchy.
Tiny Toon Adventures
They're tiny, they're toony, they're all a little loony, but they were definitely one of the best cartoons ever made.
The Mighty Ducks
The show that tried to capitalize on the popularity of the movies (and new NHL team) of the same name, but was...not even remotely similar to the live-action movies. But we didn't care, because "Ducks rock!"
Mix sugar, spice, and everything nice with a mysterious "Chemical X" and you get one of the best and most popular cartoons of the '90s.
We're just getting started! There's still the show that made learning fun, the continuing adventures of Baloo, the terror that flaps in the night, and more.
