What do you think the most iconic cartoon of your generation was.

Growing up I was really into claymation
So I guess I would say Wallace and Gromit I liked wallace and gromit so much I named my dog after gromit

Rugrats, yo.

Yeah that's usually the first thing that comes to mind. Anything from Nickelodeon basically. I didn't get Cartoon Network with our cable provider.

Rugrats was definitely one for me. I'm pretty sure I watched every single episode up to the stupid "All Grown Up" spin off. Now that I think about it, that's nothing to be proud of.(considering I was 13 when they made the last rugrats episode!)

The Simpsons.  Easily the most popular cartoon of all time, and it's glory years were the 90s.  I just don't know if there could be any argument for any other cartoon.  It influenced every animated tv show geared toward adults.  Without the Simpsons you wouldn't have The Family Guy, or South Park, and especially not Futurama.  Before the Simpsons, cartoons were considered strictly for kids.  Now 25 years later, we see a tons of cartoons with adult senses of humor, and they're no longer seen as a kids show thing.

 

And without any further adieu...

Spongebob Squarepants. Something about this show, just had such a comedic charm to it that I still watch it today.

Shame I can't say the same about the new episodes.

I liked SpongeBob, but the first season was in '99 while most of it was 2000+. Not sure I'd really classify that as a "90s" cartoon.

As a wee little lad I watched

- Gummi Bears :) (Before most of you were born)
- Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers
- Tale Spin
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Biker Mice From Mars
- X-Men
- Pinky and the Brain
- etc

(I had so many Turtles and Biker Mice toys lol)

Then later I discovered Simpsons and Beavis and Butthead (and Futurama in '99)

It was my favourite show on tv at the time. I had a lot of the toys, as well as a few VHS tapes (this was before dvds)

He did say "of your generation" aswell. So that would count, considering i spent most of my childhood in the 00's

This. :^:

Still remains one of the most iconic Cartoon Network classics. Too bad the current Cartoon Network is lagging far behind one of it's past incarnations.

Theres so many.. Well as the word is iconic than maybe indeed Simpsons, rugrats or every other 90s CN show. But to me, the best cartoon series ever made, not only 90s, EVER, has to be BTAS or Batman: the animated series. The gritty and dark atmosphere of the series is like nothing i have ever seen anywhere else. That is the true 90s feel, watching this maybe late at night....it was like watching something unforbidden. It was just so adult like. And then there was the Danny Elfman music from the Burton Batman films, a little redone but it was just epic.

I loved Dexter and johny bravo very much,

But in 1999 batman and beyond was a huge surprise that it made me like it. I always hated when my loved characters are killed or made as a mere mortal and becomes less heroic. But this was amazing how they brought new batman to the scene.

A little Spider-Man like feeling will be there as it's just a kid in the batman suite, but still Bruce Wayne was well shown as an old man. It's a great show. Must watch!

Well, uh, Dragonball Z kind of defined the late 90s for me. The very late 90s. Before that ... we didn't have much TV, but stuff I remember watching:

Rugrats
Arthur
Magic School Bus
Recess
Arrgh! Real Monsters
Hey Arnold

Then we got Sky, and it was pretty much anything showing on Cartoon Network.

That song wasn't supposed to be in the show. Of course, as we know, the song was written by Danny Elfman for the movie. Neither Elfman or Bruce Timm(the main creative force behind the show) wanted it to be in the Animated Series, but at the last minute Fox got the rights and made them use it for the opening. Which is why you don't hear the song during episodes. This is the song that they were going to use, and lives on as Batman's theme during episodes...

The memories. So many memories.

 

I'd also put up Doug and the Rugrats, not that All Grown Up sh*t but when they were actually babies. But I think overall it would ultimately go to the Simpsons.

I'm a 00's kid :pp, so probably Spongebob Squarepants, and Family Guy for my generation. Pokemon too if that counts.

 

Personally it's Futurama. It's the first cartoon I remember watching full episodes of, and the episodes still hold up. (Spongebob too, I guess, but someone already gave that answer.)

2000s kid, here. Spongebob, Fairly Odd Parents, and Jimmy Neutron were my favorites. Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, and Pinky and the Brain are some honorable mentions, they were only reruns, though.
