Cartoon Network made our childhood an awesome experience. They introduced us to great characters. When I used to get bored playing outside, I used to go back to my home and tune into cartoon network. This was the only place where any 90’s kid is never got bored. Only 90’s kids know how the old icon of Cartoon Network looked. The new icon is totally changed and this is written CN now in black and white color but before that, it was written in full spelling. Cartoon network is totally changed. In the 90’s, Cartoon Network shows were awesome, there were many cartoons shows that you watch anytime and never get bored. Cartoon Network is a very popular channel and many kids love its shows. It gave many hit Cartoons and today I’m listing down my personal favorite cartoon shows that were popular in 90’s and many kids and the older persons still love to watch these shows:
1: Tom And Jerry
Every 90’s child knows about Tom and Jerry. This is the evergreen cartoon. This cartoon is an American animated cartoon series, it is a short film cartoon. This cartoon was created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. This cartoon has two characters: Tom and Jerry and this cartoon based on slapstick comedy. This show was very famous in many countries. After that many cartoon shows were developed like Tom & Jerry Tails, Tom & Jerry Kids, Tom & Jerry Show. The first movie was released in 1992 Tom and Jerry: The Movie. After its huge success, this cartoon is a favorite of every kid. In India, this cartoon is still very famous and loved by every child and older. In 90’s, many of people did not know the name of this show and they only said that they want to watch ‘chuhe billi wala cartoon’. LOL.
2: Looney Tunes
This cartoon is short animated cartoon series. This cartoon was produced by Warner Bros from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation. This cartoon series introduced many characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the cat, Speedy Gonzales, Road Runner and much more. Porky Pig is the intro icon of the looney tunes short films. First cartoon episode was launched in black and white and after some episodes, they started to make it in color. This was by far the best work of Warner Bros.
3: Popeye The Sailor Man
Popeye The Sailor Man: this name is the best part of kid life and that make us motivated. Popeye the sailor man was the cartoon character created by Elzie Crisler Segar. The first look of this cartoon was launched in King Features Comic Strip in January 1929. Popeye became famous in a year. Popeye has also appeared in theatrical and TV animated cartoon. Popeye is a very famous cartoon character and many films are produced on him. Originally, Popeye got his strength from rubbing the head of the Whiffle Hen but after some time this changed into spinach in 1932. When he ate the spinach, he got the ultimate power to fight with his enemy (bluto) and save his girlfriend (olive oil). Many parents took advantage of this cartoon and told their kids to eat spinach so that they will have ultimate power like Popeye and then they can do anything like him and kids believed that. In fact, I also did that but sadly, my arms are still thin.
Scooby-Doo is a dog. Scooby-Doo is an American animated cartoon. The original series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! writers are Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and they created this cartoon for Hanna-Barbera production in 1969. This cartoon series was made for teenagers. In this cartoon 4 teenagers Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, and Norville “Shaggy” Rogers and their talking dog Scooby-Doo. They travel many different places by their “Mystery Machine”, their personal van which used to breakdown every time. They solved mysteries where people in the fake suit of supernatural creatures created problems and make fool of other people. Shaggy and Scooby were always scared from aliens and thieves. Whenever they used to see the ghost and other harmful creatures, they used to jump on each other. After the huge success, Joe Ruby, Ken Spears William Hanna and Joseph Barbera create many other cartoons like Scooby-Dum and his nephew Scrappy-Doo. The best part of the show is that when Scooby and his team used to solve any mystery Scooby said in loud voice ‘Scooby-Dooby-Dooooooo’. Wasn’t that cute?
Richie Rich is the richest cartoon character I’ve ever seen. He had every worker to get his jobs done faster. He had a dog “Dollar”. There were dollar marks on the waist of his dog too now you can guess about how rich he is. This show details the various adventures of Richie Rich, his family and his friends. Richie Rich is only 10 to a 13-year-old boy who wears a red sweater with a large “R”. His best friend name is Gloria she is the same age as Richie. She belongs to a middle class family and wears a white long- sleeved blouse and mini skirt. He has a robot maid Irona who helps him in everything and she is a personal Bodyguard of Richie. Irona can convert her body into various modes as necessary. Whenever she received the message from Richie she converted into the jet and immediately flew to the boy. Richie Rich was aired on 8th Sep 1980 and this cartoon was based on Harvey Comics character of the same name.
