    14 Animated Dudes Every 90s Kid Had A Crush On

    The cartoon men of your 90s fueled dreams.

    1. Gambit from X-Men

    Marvel / Via

    He’s already a rebel just by being on the X-Men—but then add that charm, that accent, that trenchcoat, and those bright blue boots…

    90s Rating: AC Slater smiling

    2. Adult Simba from The Lion King

    That hair! That smile! And, apparently, everything the sun touches is his—who wouldn’t have a crush on cartoon lion babe?

    3. Roger Klotz from Doug

    Nickelodeon / Via

    Everyone likes a bad boy, even if he’s literally bad and a total bully. And the leather jacket and white Tshirt? His fashion is still in style.

    90s Hotness Rating: Rufio from Hook but meaner

    4. Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    CBS / Via

    He loves pizza, skateboarding, and fighting crime. All he needed was a middle-part and he’d have been the ultimate 90s babe.

    5. Trent from Daria

    MTV / Via

    Don't even pretend like you didn't love him. His hotness transcends the 90s—Trent is the animated babe we all deserve in our lives. He’s the James Dean of cartoons. A timeless beauty.

    Edward Scissorhands

    6. Robin from Batman: The Animated Series

    DC Comics / Via

    Sure, everyone loves Batman and some people even have a crush on him—but Robin was the one we all wanted to kiss behind the bleachers. That cute costume and perfect hair really worked for him.

    90s Hotness Rating: Chris O'Donnell in Batman Forever but with better hair

    7. Bob from ReBoot

    BLT Productions / Via

    A CGI babe from a weird computer universe. He had the same haircut as JTT from Home Improvement. Who didn’t wanna kiss him?

    90s Hotness Rating: Jack from Titanic

    8. Wheeler from Captain Planet and the Planeteers

    Hanna-Barbera / Via

    The ginger heartthrob we all wanted to kiss and/or be. He’s a hothead who literally controls fire with his fancy Captain Planet-summoning magic ring.

    90s Hotness Rating: Nick from The Backstreet Boys

    9. Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z

    Toei Animation / Via

    The hothead bad boy from Dragon Ball Z, you see that bod?

    90s Hotness Rating: Jean-Claude Van Damme, but a better actor

    10. Peter Parker/Spider-man from Spider-Man

    Marvel / Via

    The hot nerd. He might’ve dressed like a dad (and not in a sexy way) but he had a bangin’ body, some awkward charm, and even got to hangout with the X-Men sometimes.

    90s Hotness Rating: Marty McFly (listen, the third movie came out in 1990)

    11. Aladdin from Aladdin

    Disney / Via

    It doesn’t matter if he’s dressed in his street clothes or prince robes—he’s hot. He also has an adorable, sassy pet monkey for a BFF.

    90s Hotness Rating: D.J. Tanner’s boyfriend from Full House (aka the guy who voiced Aladdin)

    12. Ren from The Pirates of Dark Water

    Hanna-Barbera / Via

    He’s like a tan version of He-Man. The blonde hair, the blue eyes, the perfectly manicured eyebrows, the one hoop earring—he’s what fan fiction dreams are made of.

    90s Hotness Rating: Rufio from Hook, but nicer

    13. Terry McGinnis/Batman from Batman Beyond

    DC Comics / Via

    Think Robin from Batman: The Animated Series but if he were Batman. The costume is less sexy but he’s still really, really hot.

    90s Hotness Rating: Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    14. Goliath from Gargoyles

    Disney / Via

    He’s the leader of a group of gargoyles that fight evil. He’s also a babe with wings who wears a tiny loincloth, so.

    90s Hotness Rating: Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, if Hercules had wings and wore less clothing
