Looking for a time capsule to travel back to the 90s to watch some of your favorite childhood cartoons?
Well, unfortunately I have no knowledge on available, running time machines, but I do have one solution that can satisfy your nostalgic needs.
Hulu has a bunch of throwback cartoons available for streaming but here are my top five favorites of the bunch!
The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
Speaking of time traveling adventures, let’s go back to 2002, the time The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius premiered.
The story of an 11-year-old genius.
During its three season run, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius was nominated for “Favorite Cartoon” at the Kid’s Choice Awards in 2006 and 2007.
Several years later, a spin-off was produced called “Planet Sheen” which is also available on Hulu. Unfortunately, it wasn’t nearly as successful.
Stemming from Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs became its own show thats about the Warner siblings, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, who get into chaotic adventures at Warner Brothers Studios.
The beauty of Animaniacs was that it educated young viewers on math, geography, science and social studies all while providing comedic relief and cartoonish violence.
Animaniacs lasted five seasons with a grand total of 99 episodes. However, according to Engadget, after Hulu resurrected Animaniacs and other WB Animated series like Pinky and the Brain, it was reported that Hulu would be streaming brand new episodes of the show.
“And those are the facts!”
Doug is a show about an 11 year old whose family moves to the town of Bluffington. He befriends this dude Skeeter who tried teaching Doug how to dance, and the rest is history.
If you were ever wondering why the characters on Doug were colors of the rainbow, the reason behind this was the drunken realization of Jim Jinkins according to Uproxx.
He realized that having full control of his show and characters, he can do whatever he wants.
Hang out with Arnold, Gerald and Helga again as they encounter adventures and trouble taking place in Hillwood.
Hey Arnold! premiered on October 7, 1996 and ended June 8, 2004.
This urban cartoon was one of the most iconic cartoons of the 90s and taught some valuable lessons and shined light on important issues from Harold’s bullying tendencies to Helga’s fear of rejection.
Hey Arnold! was so great that Nickelodeon made Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie 13 years later.
Rugrats was my all time favorite show as a kid.
I was practically a baby when these babies were on the screen and I related to them so much. Especially during that time when Tommy Pickles was worried about being sucked down the drain in the bathtub.
I also loved chocolate chip cookies as much as Angelica, even though I hate to admit I had anything in common with her.
Also, both Rugrats movies— Rugrats in Paris and Rugrats The Movie—still make me cry to this day!
