10 Epic ‘90s Kids Shows You’ve Probably Forgotten Ever Existed


Remember how good kids TV used to be? Those were the days.

We’ve done a little research into the programming from that bygone era and there are some absolute gems that we’d completely forgotten about.

Prepare for a few blasts from the past…

1. Bananas In Pyjamas

Anthropomorphic, onesie-wearing fruit in near constant pursuit of stuffed toys? This was actually a pretty bizarre concept when you think about it.

2. The Animals Of Farthing Wood

A collection of woodland critters are forced from their native land by the worst, most dangerous animal of all: humans.

What a message to send to kids.

3. The Secret World Of Alex Mack

After being soaked in a mysterious sludge, average schoolgirl Alex Mack gets the power to… transform into a puddle of water? Wish fulfilment at its finest.

4. CatDog

An animal that was a cat at one end and a dog at another, this show was proof that ’90s animators were deliberately trying to traumatise kids.

5. Doug

Best. Theme tune. Ever.

6. The Journey Of Allen Strange

An alien comes to Earth who has a mannequin for a dad and reads books by placing his hand on them: a tale as old as time.

7. Biker Mice From Mars

Human-sized mice from the planet Mars ride motorcycles and fight a bad guy who is a giant fish in disguise.

How could that not be a winner?

8. Clarissa Explains It All

Before she was Sabrina the Teenage Witch, she was a teenager named Clarissa.

9. Tots TV

Which was a completely different thing to Rosie & Jim, honestly.

10. The Morbegs

These hairy, googly-eyed, sock-eared monsters from Morbegland hung out with Irish druids (at least we think they were druids) to learn about life.

It was essential post-nap viewing.
