20 ABC Kids Shows That Can't Possibly Be Topped

Koalas, bananas, and a baby in a guitar case. The ABC had it all in the 90s.

6. Albert the Fifth Musketeer

He's sharp, he's cool, he's nobody's fool! Albert saves the other dim-witted Musketeers with his inventions and wacky schemes. Making short French men cool, way better than Napoleon ever could.


4. Rocko's Modern Life


The daily struggles of a wallaby that emigrated from Australia to the U.S. Like many others on this list, it was full of morals and lessons about being a good friend and an all round great bloke. Or in Rocko's case, wallaby.

2. Captain Planet

The power is YOURS. Forget subliminal messaging or hidden morals, this show was flat out blatant advertising for treating the planet well. Good work Captain Planet, because of you, most of us feel guilty when we use plastic bags or don't recycle.

1. Arthur

And I said hey, HEY! What a wonderful kind of day! No '90s kid can say that they don't know all the words to this song. And most of us are still trying to figure out exactly what animal Arthur is. Mouse? Monkey? Bear?

This show is hands down the No. 1 best kids show of the nineties, dare I even say of all time? Arthur and his other animal friends made us want to share, be well behaved, and treat our friends and family properly. And it had a kick ass intro theme.
