Some of the ones depicted on our new banner were pretty good, I think, although some of the ones I've seen may be a little odd for someone of my demographic. For example, I've seen Power Puff Girls and enjoyed it! But remember, I have daughters.

Hey, what are Daffy Duck and Tom & Jerry doing on this banner? Were new cartoons featuring these characters still being made in the 90s?

I remember very much liking Street Sharks. For some reason, I'm a big fan of human/fish hybrids. The current Aquaman comic has featured such creatures and I'm all in.

My nephew loved Sponge Bob and despite being almost 17 he would still count himself a fan. (Hmm, I guess that means Sponge Bob continued into this century.)

Does our banner bring back fond memories for you?

Was Spongebob around in the '90s? I guess they've lasted a while!

Of course that's true of South Park, The Simpsons, and more. I liked those two.

Ren & Stimpy I liked to a point, sometimes it went a little far with the gross-out or stupidity. Did you see Krikfalusi's follow-up The Ripping Friends? That was a little out of control.

I really liked The Tick, probably my favorite. Beavis and Butt-Head. I liked Liquid Television and Aeon Flux, not really in the same territory as most of these.

When I worked at the TV station we ran a block of Disney shows with Buzz Lightyear, Tarzan and Recess, which were all solid. Some others that I didn't pay as much attention to (Pepper Ann, The Weekenders?)

For some reason I never got into Batman or Superman or even Spider-Man. I think I didn't have the channel which carried them. Back in the old days I was one of the people who only got the 3 channels and Fox wasn't one of them, I only saw Fox at my friends' houses. For that reason I didn't even see much Simpsons until like 7 or 8 seasons in. One of the local stations did carry Married With Children, though!

Going back to the '80s I loved The Real Ghostbusters, I watched a lot of Voltron and Tranzor Z out there on the UHF dial somewhere. G.I. Joe and Transformers. I did also catch onto Beast Wars, the Transformers successor in the '90s. Loved it. Didn't expect to.

Reruns of The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo were enjoyed. Never saw as much Jetsons.

Had a local morning show (The Ramblin' Rod Show) that ran the old Looney Tunes, Woody Woodpecker, Chilly Willy, Heckle and Jeckle, Chip 'N Dale, and Popeye!
