1. Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron (1993–1995)
TV-PG | 22 min | Animation, Action, Family
Two demoted fighter pilots battle evil as high flying masked vigilantes.
Ah T-Bone,Razor and the Turbokat. The perfect awesomeness combination ever created. A pair of butt-kicking cats taking on bad guys ranging from dark kat to the Pastmaster. A brilliant intro song too! The various types of missiles in the Turbokat was just insanely cool! Man this show rocked to the core.
2. Johnny Bravo (1997–2004)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
The misadventures of a dumb blond egomanaic who is deluded about his own manliness.
Oohh, Mama! The guy with a whacky coif and ripping biceps always failed spectacularly in his attempts to woo women. Every episode involved him getting thrashed by women and it was hilarious. Of course his trademark catch phrases were the highlight of the show and his super fast hair combing techniques!
3. Centurions (1986)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Action, Family
The Centurions are the most powerful fighting force of the 21st century. Equipped with special Exoframe suits, they are the ultimate fighting machines, as well as Earth's only defence ... See full summary »
Oh yeah still feels good yelling “Power extreme”. The one thing I really loved about this show was their suits. The way the weapons just fitted into them was amazing. The wide variety of armory was a treat to watch. Land,sea,air centurions thrashing enemies with their hi-tech weapon system was just too devastatingly supreme.
4. Ninja Robots (1985–1986)
Animation, Action, Adventure
Originally Japanese (yes they do create some wickedly awesome anime) this show was aired as Ninja robots on C/N.
Remember those line
“Joe Maya” Age : 16 Status : Fugitive. He is the commander of the ninja robots. I still recall these lines. Some shows do have that extra “punch” factor which tends to leave a deep impression in your mind. This one was definitely one of the best shows ever.
5. Dexter's Laboratory (1996–2003)
TV-G | 23 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
The misadventures of a boy genius and his annoying sister.
Everybody remembers the little smarty pants Dexter and his annoying sister Dee Dee. His sophisticated inventions were the highlight of the show. Dee Dee destroying every thing he builds and the best part
“OOO what does this button do?”" Dee dee, do not press the button!”
and how can one forget the episode
“Omelette du fromage”
6. The Little Lulu Show (1995–1999)
TV-Y | 25 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
Little Lulu is the first-ever animated stand-up comic. Her best friend Annie is always there for her, and Lulu always has arguments with Tubby and the boys in his club. They are always ... See full summary »
One of the most sweet shows on television at that time. Lulu and her friends often treat us to lots of adventures. One striking aspect of this show is that it has a lot of intelligent jokes and of course a stand-up type of cartoon was a rarity in those days.
7. Speed Racer (1967–1968)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
Teenager Gô Mifune aspires to be the world's best race-car champion with the help of his friends, family and his father's high-tech race-car, the Mach 5.
This show was aired during the 90's and wow what a show it was. The Mach5 with its insane amount of gadgets was a treat to watch. The races were very enjoyable too. Too bad the movie failed to create the same enjoyable effect.
8. The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest (1996–1997)
TV-PG | 21 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
Computer wiz Jonny Quest and his friends battle international criminals using the resources of the Quest Foundation. Their chief weapon, and the target of many of their enemies, is the ... See full summary »
Easily the most coolest show on television, Jonny Quest was a treat to watch. Every sequence involving the Quest world was just way too good. Jonny and his friends often embarked on breathtaking adventures to save the world.
9. Courage the Cowardly Dog (1999–2002)
TV-Y7 | 11 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
The offbeat adventures of Courage, a cowardly dog who must overcome his own fears to heroically defend his unknowing farmer owners from all kinds of dangers, paranormal events and menaces that appear around their land.
This show was absolutely fantastic. Courage somehow managed to make you laugh and at the same time some of the villains managed to creep the hell out of you. This show is definitely a must watch.
10. The Mask (1995–1997)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
The further adventures of Stanley Ipkiss and his magic reality defying mask.
The movie was brilliant and the TV series was not bad either. Loads of witty gags were the highlight of this show. Mask's catch phrases 'Smokin' and 'Somebody stop me' were just hilarious.
