    24 Kids Shows That '90s And '00s Kids Forgot About, But Definitely Watched

    "I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons in a land apart."

    1. Rolie Polie Olie (1998–2004)

    Disney Channel

    Geometric robots in a colorful, robot-filled world? Absolutely genius.

    2. Maggie and The Ferocious Beast (2000–2002)

    Nickelodeon

    Maggie's imaginary world, wisely called "Nowhere Land," was a kindergarten afternoon classic.

    3. Higglytown Heroes (2004–2008)

    Playhouse Disney

    Warning: SO MANY songs ahead.

    4. Dragon Tales (1999–2005)

    5. Stanley (2001–2004)

    Disney Channel

    If you don't remember, Stanley had a book with animals in it. Whenever he faced a problem, he'd look up an animal who could help him. Also, the theme song was by the Baha Men, and it was incredible.

    6. Jojo's Circus (2003–2007)

    Playhouse Disney

    A lot of clowns are scary, but this one definitely wasn't.

    7. Shanna's Show (2003–2011)

    Disney / Via bit.ly

    This one was a short, but it was still so great that I bet you still remember the theme song.

    8. Bear In The Big Blue House (1997–2006)

    Disney Channel

    This gigantic bear took care of all his little animal friends, and taught you lots of life lessons.

    9. Oobi (2000–2005)

    Noggin

    First of all, who allowed this? It was terrifying. But also great. If you watched Noggin, you know.

    10. Courage The Cowardly Dog (1996–2002)

    Cartoon Network

    If this show didn't creep you out, that's something you may need to think deeply about.

    11. Oswald (2001–2003)

    Nickelodeon

    Who would've thought that a happy octopus and his pet hot dog could bring such joy?

    12. Franklin and Friends (2011–2013)

    Treehouse TV

    This show taught so many life lessons that school didn't!

    13. Zoboombafoo (1999–2001)

    PBS

    Again, this is probably where your animal addiction stemmed from. Also, this lemur was kind of scary at times.

    14. Brandy and Mr. Whiskers (2004–2006)

    Disney

    You know that show you would wake up to in the living room at 3 a.m.? Yeah, that's it.

    15. As Told By Ginger (2000–2006)

    Nickelodeon

    Dug this one up from so far back in my memory.

    16. Rocket Power (1999–2004)

    Nickelodeon

    Woogity, woogity, woogity.

    17. Caillou (1997–2010)

    PBS

    This show was around for a long time.

    18. The Doodlebops (2005–2007)

    Disney

    This one was a little strange.

    19. Clifford The Big Red Dog (2000–2003)

    PBS

    Did you know this was a book, too???

    20. Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! (2006–2010)

    Nickelodeon / Via bit.ly

    This hamster-like creature was quite an interesting character.

    21. The Wild Thornberrys (1998–2004)

    Nickelodeon

    Everything about this show was perfect, including the movie adaptation and soundtrack.

    22. Max and Ruby (May 2002–present)

    Nickelodeon

    Max is every girl's little brother, seriously.

    23. Charlie and Lola (2005–2008)

    BBC Worldwide

    I'm not even going to lie to you, this one took some serious concentration and some google investigation. If you watched this one, hit me up.

    24. And Lazy Town (2004–2014)

    Nickelodeon

    Home sick from school? This is definitely what you were forced to watch.
