THE MOST POPULAR CARTOONS OF THE 90’s

90_s_cartoons

The 90’s was known for their brilliant cartoons that shaped many young kids into their adult selves. These cartoons were fun, obviously, but they are so much more than that. As someone who grew up watching a lot of cartoons on TV, I can safely say they defined my childhood and moulded me into the person I am today. This is true for almost all of the kids born in 90’s. This list contains few of the most popular shows of the time and is not an objective list.

  • Tom and Jerry

Tom and Jerry was the pinnacle of slapstick humour that extended boundaries. The show centres around a cat named Tom, a mouse named Jerry and their antics trying to one-up each other. It was hilarious and extremely enjoyable to watch. There was barely any dialogue in the show which meant anyone could watch and enjoy this masterpiece made by Hanna Barbera. Though technically, the original show was made in the 40’s there were plenty of new iterations and reruns to keep everyone entertained.

 

  • Powerpuff Girls

Powerpuff girls was a staple of 90’s cartoons and were partly responsible for bringing Cartoon network into the spotlight. The show focuses on three very compelling and powerful female leads and was designed in a way that every girl could relate to one of the main characters. This show, while empowering women and breaking the definition of what it meant to be a girl, appealed to everyone- both the sexes of all age groups. The Powerpuff Girls is a  cornerstone of many kids’ childhoods and one of the most beloved and enduring shows that cartoon network has put out.

  • Batman: The Animated Series

Before Christopher Nolan got to Batman, Paul Dini and Bruce Timm were making their own Batman show- Batman: The Animated Series. This show is arguably the best adaptation of Batman inching out all other competitors with its perfect portrayal of the character without going too far. The voice acting, the animation and the story; everything was perfect and without comprises. The best part of the show was that even though it was a kid’s cartoon there was still a mature tone which made it all the more enjoyable, even today.

 

  • Captain Planet and the Planeteers

Captain Planet was one of those ‘out there concepts that worked’ that the 90’s were known for. The creators managed to make a show that was inclusive, fun and compelling all the while making it educational. The ambition and heart that went into the show would put most cartoons today to shame. Though the show may feel bit cheesy now, it was perfect for the time.

 

  • The Simpsons

The Simpsons are arguably the most popular cartoon out there with its unique animation style, its often crass story and the controversies it creates. At its peak, no other cartoon could touch the Simpsons. The cast was diverse and fun, the stories were original and meanings conveyed were profound. The Simpsons poked into society and its problems and served as social commentary before the time of the internet.

About Cartoon

cartoon-heroes

Cartoons are basically illustrations and or animations set in a non-realistic world. The meaning of cartoon has been evolving since its origin, but the modern day cartoon involves any images or a series of images drawn for satire, caricature, comic, humor, or motion picture.

Some of the earliest cartoons can be traced back to eighteenth century Britain where cartoons were made as a form of satire. These early political cartoons soon came to colonial America, and turned into a critical piece of the development for freedom. The early political cartoons in the states jabbed fun at British govern and the laws of the day. The political cartoons in the newspapers of the day gave a focal topic to the developing progressive spirit. Cartoons have likewise been utilized as pictures to promote certain goals and ideals. A standout amongst the most these is Uncle Sam. In 1852, the picture of Uncle Sam started to show up in a cartoon in a New York newspaper. Soon, the picture of Uncle Sam moved toward being associated to the United States and Uncle Sam started to show up in advertisements to help the nation amid times of war and struggle. At the point when the motion picture was invented in the mid 1900’s, one of the earliest uses of this new medium was the cartoon. Now popular cartoons would be screened on the big screen. Audiences of motion pictures were excited to see a portion of the cartoon shorts that would start to show up. The cartoons of the motion pictures were an apparatus for a long time and through work crafted by the Disney Studios in the late 1900’s and then continued work of animation studios, like, Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks Studios have advanced the genre cartoon motion pictures higher than ever. While cartoons in the movies and in print have been a piece of our lives, the area that has seen the best headway of the genre is the work crafted by television cartoons. Cartoons have been a piece of television since the beginning of TV in the mid 1900’s. Through the span of time cartoons, like , Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse and other early TV cartoon pioneers have been a part of our life. In time, cartoons, for example, The Flintstones, Jetsons and Scooby Doo started to show up after which animated cartoons for energized superheroes, such as, Batman, Superman and Spiderman started. Today, television cartoons keep airing including those that are not only for kids, like, The Simpsons, South Park and The Family Guy.

Cartoons also play a huge role in fine arts. Cartoons in the fine art involve a full-sized preliminary drawing after which fresco, oil, mosaic, tapestry or stained glass are made.

 

Best cartoons of all time

Cartoons are all time favourite for children. We all had watched cartoons when we were little children, and as we grew up, we had other interests and goals, so we slowly stopped watching cartoons we used to when we were young. But there are certain cartoons which can never be forgotten. We still watch such cartoons and enjoy the story. There have been several cartoons, and the following are some of the best cartoons of all time:

The Simpsons:

The Simpsons started in the year 1989, and it is one cartoon which is loved by many people all over the world even today. The cartoon is hilarious, and you can enjoy it with your family. The cartoon has some of the best lines, and they are popular for predicting the things which might happen in the future. It is as if the writers can time travel and see the future. It is one of the longest-running TV show, and no one would even be bored of watching The Simpsons.

Looney Tunes:

I am pretty sure that none of us will ever be able to forget bugs bunny or Daffy the duck. They were one of the most loved cartoon characters of all time, and the cartoon was started way back in the year 1960. Some of the other popular characters include Sylvester the cat and Tweety the annoying yellow bird. Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote were a classic pair, and I would always feel bad for Coyote as he makes brilliant ideas, but none of them works. The term “That’s all, folks!” would be one of the hardest things to hear and we would always want to watch more of the Looney Tunes show.

SpongeBob SquarePants:

The cartoon was first started in the year 1999, and it is a brilliant cartoon. Sponge Bob and all his friends take the cartoon to the next level. With the joyous starfish, the narcissistic octopus and the squirrel the writers do a brilliant job.

 Tom and Jerry:

There is not a single kid who does not love Tom and Jerry. It was one of the best cartoons ever made. As kids, we understood the true meaning of friendship by watching this cartoon, and even today we will never be able to forget all the scenes. The show was started in the year 1940 in the United States of America by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. The show has won about seven academy awards and several other awards.

Tom-And-Jerry

Pokemon:

Pokemon is a Japanese anime which became an international hit. The cartoon was showed in more than 98 countries worldwide. The chief director of the anime is Kunihiko Yuyama, and it was started in the year 1997.

Ash and his friends set out on an adventure where they face many challenges and struggles.

 

The Highest Grossing Animated Movies of All Time

cartoons

Taking a look at animated movies, there has been a massive trend over the last decade or two, that completely changed and heightened our expectations of ‘a good animated film’. If you think about films that even started it all way back in 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, everything just seemed to get better and better.
With that being said, another thing that has added even more excitement to the mix is the many new characters that came after some of the most popular movies of all time. These include The Lion King, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White and so many more.

When you look at animated films now, these characters are not only interesting to kids but have attracted a whole new audience of adults to and since this is the case, it has also allowed for the creation and production of some pretty high-grossing films. Due to interest though, which films are considered the highest grossing in the world and what’s next for Disney? How can they continue topping their previous film and set the bar even higher than ever before?  We guess we’ll never know, but we’re pretty sure they’ll do it.

The Highest Grossing Animated Movies of All Time

Frozen

Kicking it off with the very famous Frozen, you guessed it… It’s the highest grossing film that’s ever been made and concluded a massive $1,274,219,009 in 2013. How’s that for success at the box office? The movie itself, however, wasn’t the only means of income, but it was also extremely successful when it came to the sales of its merchandise, as well as its music. I mean, who will ever forget ‘Let it go’?

Minions

It’s without a doubt that this animation is one of our favourites. Gracing the screens all around the globe, the animated film, Minions made up to $1,159,398,397 in 2015. This film made more money than the yellow men’s origin movie, Despicable Me, as well as Despicable Me 2.

When Pixar created three different Toy Story’s, who knew that the third would bring in a total of $1,063,171,911. Made in 2010, along with its sales of merchandise, Toy Story 3 ranked as the third highest grossing film globally.

Finding Dory

Ah, Dory… Who could forget, except for Dory, the blue fish that stole our hearts? Making a total of $1,026,337,708 in 2016 at the box office, we’re pretty convinced that the film was successful.

Zootopia

Recognized as one insanely cute movie, Disney created a charming film that stuck to our hearts like glue. Its characters were definitely its main attraction and allowed for the film to make $1,023,191,334 in 2016. Most definitely a worthy pick!

Other films that grossing a total of just below a billion dollars was Despicable 2 and 3, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Shrek 2, Ice Age’s Dawn of the Dinosaurs, as well as Continental Drift to name but a few.

Derived from Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip. This cartoon became a sensation ever since it was released back in the 1960’s. It included unforgettable holiday specials which, let’s face it, were pretty epic. These included ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin’, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’, as well as ‘Charlie Brown’.

Considered one of the best of the best for sure.

 

 

 

90s animated shows

The 90s is still considered as the golden age for animated shows, with many young adults still feeling that today’s cartoons and animated shows don’t match up to the 90s. The reasons being that the animated shows then were about the storylines and the script mixed in with great voice actors doing a remarkable job but today’s animated shows are more focused on the money that can be minted by introducing a very commercial angle to the shows. Today we explore some of the greatest 90s animated shows.

And let’s not even get into how many things Simpsons have accurately predicted through the years.

  1. Dexter’s Laboratory

The show is about a mad genius who has a state of the art laboratory in his room and has plans to take over the world, sounds too serious for the young audience, doesn’t it? So to make it more viewer friendly, let’s add in a sister who likes to have fun at the expense of her younger sibling. That ladies and gentleman is the story of one of the greatest animated shows in history. If you look back on it now, you end up sympathising with almost every character, and that is the mark of a great show, which has captured our hearts and continued to do so.

  1. Tiny Toon Adventures

What is better than seeing your favourite bunch of loony toons, well tiny toon adventures brings you all the fun is a baby-sized package. With ample amounts of cuteness that appeals to a wide range of audience, this show truly captured the essence of the 90s.

It truly stands out as a show because of the concepts that are explored in the series. The ever controversial show is one that is loved by adults to this day.

The 90s were a remarkable time in television history; this list will never do justice to anyone who reads it since they will always have their preferred list. Regardless of the shows that this article explored, let’s take a moment to appreciate how much fun the 90s really was.

Though all of them are great in their own way, few cartoons still rule the hearts of the millions of youngsters which are listed below:

DC Vs. Marvel: After All These Years, We Have A Clear Winner!

DC Vs. Marvel

During the yester years, comic-book movies were not something that you get to see very often.  Even the films that were released brought down the glory of our very own super heroes that people hated the idea of watching comic-book movies. Then out of the blue something magical happened. Movies like Super Man, Spider Man among many others found their way to the big screen and won the hearts of multitude. Since then the love for super –hero movies hasn’t gone down a bit. The two big production houses that are a hub of these all these comic characters are DC and Marvels. There has always been competition as to who is better. Now with the growth of technology the reach has gotten better and with the increased use of social media, the rivalry is found both on and off the screen between makers and their respective fans and followers.

DC Vs. Marvel

Role of Walt Disney in Marvel:

Before Walt Disney could purchase Marvel, Marvel had its right distributed among various other entities such as Sony, Universal, etc. The biggest demerit was that people were able to enjoy the partnership of their favorite super-heroes only in the written format and not on the big screen. This was the biggest issue that was solved when Walt Disney wholly bought the rights of Marvel in the year 2009. Iron Man was the first Marvel character that struck a chord with the movie-goers. His collaboration with the other Marvel Heroes made people fall in love with the idea of super hero tie-ups on screen.

Marvel vs. DC:

  • DC has always had the upper hand because of the DC heroes Super Man and Bat Man. However, people today are out of the shell. People love Iron Man as much as they love Super Man. They are trying to personalize with characters like Black Widow and Hawkeye.
  • People have learned to appreciate the X-Men series, Avengers series and the Guardians of the Galaxy as well. So as far the primary heroes and second-tier heroes are concerned, Marvel takes the trophy home.
  • As far as these comic villains are concerned, DC has ‘Joker’ to its name. Hands down, with Joker in the track, no one else even wants to compete. Joker is that one Villain no one wants to hate. So undoubtedly DC wins here.
  • In case if you might be interested to know, there was a comic book that was released in the year 1996. It was a limited series and did rounds for a couple of months before vanishing into thin air. Though the book isn’t alive anymore the idea behind was great. DC and Marvel collaborated and released the series. The books speak nothing of their competition or rivalry. The book just personifies these legends as two Godly brothers who become aware of each other’s presence and try to find out who is the best by letting their respective heroes meet each other for a face off. The series came to an end when these fictional brothers realized that both are important for each other’s survival and withdrew along with their pack.

Present Scenario:

Asking to pick one between the two is like asking to pick your favorite eye. Both DC and Marvel Comics have been great contributors to art and literature. Both of them are highly imperative to keep the fiction world active. So there is no way choosing one over the other.

All that you have to Know about the Knifey Spoony Game!

Knifey Spoony

Knifey Spoony is a verbal game that has been gaining a lot of popularity in the recent times. To know more about Knifey Spoony one has to know the cartoon ‘Simpsons.’ For those of you who do not know the history of the game, Knifey Spoony is a game that came into existence after a particular episode of the cartoon that was aired on the television. In the episode, the characters play the game. It has no logic, but it was still fun. This made all the viewers try the game at least once. The game is very simple, so there are no hard and fast rules as far as playing the game is concerned, but there are certain things that you ought to remember before playing the game. Let us see what those points are.

Knifey Spoony

Knifey Spoony:

  • There are two competitors involved in the game. The players are given with spoon and knives.
  • The winner of the game is the one with the largest knife at the end of the session or the game.
  • So the knife with the largest blade is the winner. However, this might not be the ends of it at times.
  • Sometimes a spoon can be given instead of a knife. The player cannot ignore the arrival of the spoon in the event of playing the game. So when the player gets a spoon, all that he has to do is to convince the other person that the given object is a knife and not a spoon.
  • The more the person says that it is a spoon you are losing points. The only rule is that you shouldn’t let the other player say the word ‘spoon.’
  • Finally, if you get the person to admit that this isn’t a spoon but a knife, you win the game.
  • This is one of the widely played pub games. Yes, you heard it right. This game is a commonly played pub game in Australia. Since this is a debate game, there are both solved and unsolved debates.

The beginning of this game is sometimes completely unbelievable. You can’t play some random game, just because few characters played those games in a cartoon series that you watch. But to our great astonishment, that is the truth. Simpsons is one of the widely loved and watched cartoon series. So the arrival of the game is justified by many. It is an even more laughable fact that this game is gaining popularity every single day and the people playing it are increasing.
