3. I Am Weasel

Cartoon Network

Why we should talk about it: Because the character design was amazing and even Red Guy from Cow & Chicken became a main character on both shows. And it's a win whenever he appears on anything.

11. The Angry Beavers

Nickelodeon

Why we should talk about it: Because we all need cartoons with some serious sibling rivalry. The pranks, the fighting, and forgiving each other eventually — it’s amazing!

13. Freakazoid!

Warner Bros.

Why we should talk about it: Once again, Steven Speilberg getting involved in cartoons should be championed! Also anything making fun of the superhero archetype with a superhero is hilarious.

16. The Busy World of Richard Scarry

Nickelodeon

Why we should talk about it: Because conflict resolution being the main theme of a show is amazing! And Pépé le Gangstaire is the best name you could ever give to a villain.

19. Dilbert

UPN

Why we should talk about it: Because it proves that there's hope for comic book artists to get their work adapted for TV. And it's seriously like Family Guy without all the offensive shit. So hurt it got cancelled.

22. Earthworm Jim

Kids' WB

Why we should talk about it: Because they would hilariously break the fourth wall and usually start off the episode with Earthworm Jim and his sidekick in the middle of some sticky situation. This is what quality cartoons are people!!

23. Captain Simian & The Space Monkeys

Sonar Entertainment

Why we should talk about it: Because maybe talking about the '90s trend of anthropomorphic animals coming from outer space will spark up that trope again.

28. Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century

Fox Kids

Why we should talk about it: Because we really need to debate the fact that Sherlock Holmes would not be able to solve ANY crimes in the 22nd century! Or THIS century for that matter, too many technological advances. But the show was awesome.

30. Free Willy

ABC

Why we should talk about it: Because in the midst of all the animated series based off movies, a wholesome one is needed in there. Gotta have something to balance out all the craziness that is '90s cartoons.

34. Pepper Ann

Disney

Why we should talk about it: Pepper Ann is a fucking badass. Any cartoon with a female lead who isn't afraid to speak her mind is important. And that theme song is seriously one of the best theme songs of all time.
