There's more than just Daria and Helga.

2. Reggie Rocket from Rocket Power

She was always super level-headed compared to Otto and her friends and could surfboard, skimboard, deconstruct feminist theory, skateboard, and rollerblade just as good if not better than everyone else.

3. Susie Carmichael from Rugrats

Not only was Susie the only black Rugrat (don't we wish there was more diversity on the show?), but she was insanely confident, open-minded, and always asserted her opinion. She was also the voice of reason on the Rugrats.

4. Mr. Simmons from Hey Arnold!

Nickelodeon

Mr. Simmons is the most open-minded character on Hey Arnold! and the best teacher on the show. He's just the kindest man who enjoys a good Cabernet Sauvignon on Thanksgiving and making safe spaces for everyone around him.

6. Francine from Arthur

...and while we're talking about Arthur, we can't forget about Francine - the cocky tomboy athlete who always butt heads with Arthur. Here's a classic Francine episode.

7. Judy Funnie from Doug

Judy's dramatic tendencies only existed because she was devoted to theatre and literature. This is something that Doug just couldn't understand.

9. Mother Bear from Little Bear

Nickelodeon / Via vimeo.com

She worked alongside her husband to care for the house and family in a wonderful way. She also had to make due in a challenging environment like the countryside, getting creative with what she had. If Little Bear needed anything, the chances are Mother Bear had the answer (the right answer).

10. Sally Cat from The Busy World of Richard Scarry

Showtime / Via everythingbusytown.wikia.com

Here's her first day at school. She brings puppets to the classroom and enchants the other students with her leadership skills and teaches them about third-wave feminism!!
