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?

90s Hotness Rating:
cool teens with JTT’s haircut

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.

90s Hotness Rating: that kid from school who wore sunglasses while skateboarding

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.

90s Hotness Rating:
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

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

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
