The ’90s were what some people call the last great decade. Peace and prosperity reigned. Our beloved 90s cartoons on Saturday mornings were always a highlight of our week.
It was the start of the internet (remember those dial-up, fax machine-sounding connection days?) and the Google search engine. Two things the world’s population has come to rely on heavily. We started building bigger homes, driving more prominent cars, and working longer hours.
We weren’t concerned with climate change. We were more concerned with remembering to feed our Tamagotchi’s, and did we have the latest Beanie Baby?
We lived for TV. This was the decade of Seinfeld and Friends. Family shows like Family Matters, Growing Pains, and Full House had us fall in love with unique and quirky characters. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air made us all wish our parents would say, “you’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air.”
1997-2009. Another Beavis and Butthead spin-off, King of the Hill, was the complete opposite. It centered on Hank Hill, a run-of-the-hill family man, and found humor in everyday life’s tedious and straightforward aspects. Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Youtube TV all carry episodes.
The show aired from 1987 to 1996 and was about four teenage mutant heroes protecting the city of New York from crime. They were all named after famous artists: Leonardo Davinci, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael.
