List of the Day: Best Cartoon Characters of the 90's

Ah nostalgia! There is nothing quite as glorious as sitting back and remembering the good ol’ days. Something about thinking back on your childhood just gives you a warm fuzzy feeling like a nice cozy blanket over your heart. I love it. Which is why when I came across the Best Cartoon Characters of the 90’s list made by one of our new favorite user, Imaginary Zipper, I feel in love with it instantly.

I mean, for those of us that grew up on MTV, Nickelodeon and Saturday Morning Power Block, how could we forget the greatness of sitting in front of the TV after school and watching Ren & Stimpy, The Tick or Animaniacs. Remember when your parents used to say that cartoons did nothing but rot your brain, but then you busted out the States and Capitals Song and they had to second guess their parenting skills?

I am going to just put it out there right now. The cartoons of today have nothing on the brilliance that came from 90’s cartoons. Sure, Spongebob Squarepants can be appreciated every now and again, but that’s just one show. Most of the cartoons nowadays are just one long flashing fight scene or something incomprehensibly Japanese. (Not that there is anything wrong with foreign cartoons being passed off as American. I loved Thundercats and Transformers and know that they were made over seas.) I know I sound like an old fart, but you have to admit, there is nothing like the “Happy Happy Joy Joy” song out there today.

The Most Annoying Saturday Morning List of the Day

Few things on Earth say Saturday morning like cartoons and cereal. It’s always great, just sitting in front of Saturday morning cartoons, with your favorite novelty cereal bowl, eating sugary stuff that advertising companies somehow convinced your parents were a necessary part of your balanced breakfast. 

But among the cartoons, there were always those few characters that really got to us, rubbed us the wrong way, or ruined everything for every body. 

Remember this needy bastard?

Snarf Sucks

or maybe this Napoleon-complexed little nuisance?

or how about this troll’s laugh?

There was always that ONE cartoon character that really grinded your gears. For me, it was always Ranger Smith. Screw that guy. If it weren’t for him, Boo Boo wouldn’t have to be so uptight all the time “I don’t think the Ranger’s gonna like this, Yogi”. 

What if he wasn’t around to kill the buzz of being two awesome bears in the woods? You know how much more fun Yogi Bear would’ve been as a show? It’d basically be like The Hangover, only with cartoon bears. 

If only it weren’t for this fun-ruining Ranger. They should’ve mauled him. 

“Well they can’t have fun, I mean, c’mon…”

So, in honor of today being Saturday, here’s a wonderful list that allows you to list the cartoon characters that annoy you the most, and to vote for the worst, best and most memorably annoying ones.
