90 Kid Shows from the 90's

A (biased) list of shows from the 90's.

The list is arranged by year and then alphabetically (Starting from 1990 onwards. If the series started in the 80s, I have not included it. Ex. Saved by the Bell started in 1989).

If you don't recognize some of them (and you were a kid in the 90's), don't worry! There are shows from Canada, and other countries, that may or may not have been shown where you lived.

Also, if your favourite show isn't on the list, I apologize. I'll be adding other shows in this description (I'd like the official list to stay at 90), but if I can get 90 more shows, I'll make a second list. :D Oh, and shows like South Park and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are not listed because I don't honestly think they're for children.

If you see any errors, or think there are shows that would suite this list, please feel free to leave a comment ~
