The 17 Films You Forgot You Loved As A 90s Kid

The 17 Films You Forgot You Loved As A 90s Kid

Everybody can admit that kids films from the 90s were the best! If you never saw Matilda, The Parent Trap, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast or Hocus Pocus then you need to go on a downloading spree now.

Although those films were some of the most memorable of our childhood, we don't always remember the other big greats from the era. Here are just 17 90s kids films you forgot existed:

1.Homeward Bound (1993)

If you've never seen this film about two dogs and a cat trying to find their way home then watch it immediately.

2. The Pagemaster (1994)

If you loved Home Alone and Richie Rich then you love this other Macaulay Culkin classic about a boy who enters the world of books.

3. Casper (1995)


The friendliest ghost of them all came in the form of an 8-year-old ghost called Casper. Can you remember the stickers you'd find in your cereal? The Casper glow in the dark ones outshined the rest!

4. The Witches (1990)

The scariest film of many a kid from the 90s childhood,  the witches turned children into mice. Angelica Houston was brilliant as the Head Witch.

5. Babe (1995)

Who can forget the classic line: "You did good, Pig".

6. A Simple Wish (1997)


After Mara Wilson was Matilda she played Annabel, the girl who wished for a fairy Godmother. Kathleen Turner plays one of the best kids movie villains of all time!

7. Flubber (1997)

The least mentioned of the Robin William greats, Flubber is about a little green blob who is made from "flying rubber". Never has a piece of inanimate object been more loved by kids.

8. The Borrowers (1997)


Everyone's favourite family came in the form of these tiny creatures called Borrowers. The borrowers 'borrow' household bits to help them build and create their homes - much to the annoyance of the people who own the house.

9. The Iron Giant (1999)

The classic animation was rereleased in 2015 and won a Children's Bafta for Best Feature upon its release.


10. Jack (1996)

Another live action great, Robin William's plays a young boy whose body ages at an alarming rate. Get the tissues ready, this one is a tearjerker.

11. Fly Away Home (1996)

Amy (Anna Pacquin) is a 13-year-old who tries to help train orphan geese to fly so they migrate for the winter. The story is still one of the best feel-good movies ever!


12. The Land Before Time (1988)

The cute names of the entire ensemble are what made this movie our go to dinosaur flick. Even though it was made in the late 80s it was always on our TVs.

13. Stuart Little (1999)

Arguably, the best mouse to ever feature in a movie was Stuart Little. Stuart is adopted by a human family after he's left at a New York orphanage.


14. The Little Rascals (1994)

The Little Rascals is one of the worst rated films of all time by critics. Memorable characters such as Alfalfa and Darla have given this film cult status.

15. Brave Little Toaster (1987)


No household appliance has tugged at our hearts more than the brave little toaster.

16. Drop Dead Fred (1991)

The most bizarre of imaginary friends came in the form of 'Drop Dead Fred'. It was both hilarious and terrifying.

17. Madeline (1998)

Madeline was basically Matildas British/ French twin and came out two years after the release of Matilda.

We think a 90s binge watch is in order.
