The 90’s cartoon characters are certainly the most beloved and iconic characters of all time. So I have brought a list of top 14 characters we all love and grew up watching.

  1. Tom (Tom and Jerry)

We like Tom more than Jerry because we get the fact that it’s not a cat and mouse race, it’s a cartoon and here Tom is the one who always faces problems created by Jerry. Jerry is the smarter one here and knows how to deal with different situations. So, it’s obvious that Tom is chased by Jerry and we feel sorry for him. And that’s why he is much more memorable.

  1. Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes)

We like the smart grey rabbit from Looney Tunes who used to win all the battles over his enemies and was always seen chewing the carrot. He also appeared in other cartoons like Porky’s Hare Hunt and Merrie Melodies. We often saw him dressing up to portray different personalities!

  1. Popeye (Popeye The Sailor Man)

We like Popeye and also his biceps. Bluto, the bearded character, always used to create problems for Popeye to spend time with Olive Oyl. Popeye used to come back to power just after completing his Spinach and how can I forget to mention the theme song which followed:

“I’m Popeye the Sailor Man, I’m Popeye the Sailor Man. I’m Strong to the Finich, Cause I eats me Spinach. I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.”

A lot of characters from Popeye the Sailor Man were inspired by the people from real life. Popeye was inspired by Frank “Rocky” Fiegal, Olive Oyl by Mrs. Dora Paskel and Wimpy by J. William Schuchert.

  1. Genie (Aladdin)

Genie was undoubtedly the best character in Aladdin. He used to talk directly with the viewers and proved his friendship whenever Aladdin faced a problem. Remember the way he used to change his style of saying the dialogues in seconds and his funny sense of humor?

Robin Williams was the voice of the character Genie and Aladdin was modeled after Tom Cruise and Jasmine was modeled after Jennifer Connelly.

  1. SpongeBob (SpongeBob SquarePants)

SpongeBob is our favorite because of his enthusiastic and optimistic behavior and also because he looks too cute with that rectangular face and big eyes! In this cartoon, we used to get hilarious grammar lessons and weirdly amazing quotes for any and every situation.

  1. Blossom (The Powerpuff Girls)

We like Himawari, the youngest stubborn child of the Nohara family, who gets attracted towards glossy objects, branded things and every handsome young man. She is always found annoying Shin-Chan.

Crayon Shin-Chan (1992) is a Japanese series. It became very popular in many other countries. It shows the adventures of Shinnosuke (known as Shin Chan).

  1. Dexter (Dexter’s Laboratory)

We like Dexter, an intelligent young boy, whose main goal is probably to dominate the world with his numerous gadgets and computers. He is Super genius but often mean to others, perhaps, because he has no friends. But even if he tries to be mean to everyone, he has a caring heart which we have seen in numerous situations where he shows care for his annoying sister Dee Dee.

  1. Velma (Scooby-Doo)

We like Velma (“born with a mystery book in her hand”), the extremely intelligent young woman, who is always prone to losing her glasses. We remember her dialogue, “My glasses; I can’t see without my glasses!”

The dialogue “My glasses; I can’t see without my glasses”  was not part of original cartoon until Nicole Jaffe, who voiced Velma, uttered these words.

  1. Kit (TaleSpin)

We like the 12 year old Kit, Baloo’s best friend and an orphaned bear cub, because of his intelligent, daredevil and mischievous personality. He liked cloud-surfing and disliked spinach. He hated when someone treated him as a kid.

  1. Spinelli (Recess)

We like Spinelli because her tough look and the way she is, makes people believe that it is hard to become her friend. But she has proved them wrong because she was part of the gang which had heart of gold. She is the one who makes the gang perfect because she can keep all the annoying kids away with the help of her tough personality.

  1. Scrooge McDuck (DuckTales)

We like Scrooge McDuck (also known as Uncle Scrooge) because of his funny, adventurous, stubborn and greedy personality.

“No man is poor who can do what he likes to do once in a while! And I like to dive around in my money like a porpoise! And burrow through it like a gopher! And toss it up and let it hit me on the head!” -Scrooge McDuck

  1. Timon & Pumbaa (The Lion King)

We like both Timon and Pumbaa and can’t choose one. Pumbaa is a kind warthog and Timon is a very talkative Meerkat. They were always found indulging in arguments with each other. And we all love the song, “Hakuna Matata Timon n Pumbaa.”

  1. The New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh

We like Pooh because he is damn cute and adorable. He loves honey just a little too much which makes him and his friends face trouble.

“I don’t Feel very much like Pooh Today,” said Pooh.

“There there,” said Piglet. “I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.” -A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh.
