Top Childhood Cartoons of the 90’s
I thought I would share my top 10 favourite kids tv shows of my childhood.
1 – Count Duckula
Count Duckula is a British children’s drama, horror, comedy, animated television series created by British studio Cosgrove Hall and a spin-off from DangerMouse, a show in which the Count Duckula character was a recurring villain. The series aired on September 6, 1988 and was produced by Thames Television for three series and Central Television for the fourth and final series. In all, 65 episodes were made, each about 22 minutes long. All 65 episodes have been released to DVD in the UK, while only the first series has been released in North America. Both the series and its characters continue to have a large following on the internet.
The show is a loose parody of the story of Count Dracula. Set in Transylvania (a region in Romania), Duckula lives in a spooky castle known as Castle Duckula alongside his butler Igor and his large nanny (always referred to as “Nanny” and perpetually wearing an arm sling). Almost all of the characters in the show are anthropomorphised birds.
2 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles – TMNT
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (known as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles in Europe due to controversy at the time). The series featured the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters created in comic book form by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird.

5 – Captain Planet
Captain Planet is the titular character of the TV show Captain Planet and the Planeteers. In the beginning of the series, Gaia assembles a modern-day group of people from several nations. When the modern-day Planeteers combine their powers to summon the elemental warrior, this incarnation takes on the appearance of a superhero, who takes on the superhero-like name of “Captain Planet.” Captain Planet displays a wry sense of humour and often uses puns while taunting the show’s cast of villains.

The Care Bears appeared in their own TV specials called The Care Bears in the Land Without Feelings (1983) and The Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine (1984).
