This is an ode to the best TV shows of the 1990s! There are so many to choose from and it's not until you put yourself into your 90's shoes that you remember all of these television classics. Nickelodeon was a goldmine for such TV shows, but there are also some hidden gems in our list that you may have forgotten about. What's your favourite show from the 90s?
10. Kenan & Kel.
Kenan & Kel is a fantastic comedy series which follows the teenage exploits and immature misdemeanors of the two best friends, growing up in Chicago in the 1990s. We still all remember Kel's infamous catch phrase, Kenan's post-show shenanigans and Mr. Rigby's sad sayings, such as "I have a radio in my car..." Remember when Kenan and Kel climbed the top of the Sears Tower so Kenan could proclaim his love for his crush? And don't try and tell me you didn't shed a tear when Kenan and his family moved and left Kel all alone! "Who LOVES Orange Soda?" We do, we do, we Do-ooooooo!
9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Every lad seemed to have a thing for Sarah Michelle Gellar in her vampire slaying days. Let's face it, girls loved it, and watched it all the time! Guys did too, but they tried to hide their love of the show, maybe even still do! Sure you can still catch the odd re-run nowadays!
8. That '70s Show.
Everybody got sucked into this super coming-of-age comedy in its lengthy 8 year stint on television. It followed the teenage antics surrounding Eric Forman and his friends, with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher being the two most notable stars to excel in their acting careers after the show. Part of the fun about the series was their constant debauchery and participation in "the circle", where they would sit around and smoke weed, although it was never expressly identified that THAT was indeed what they were all doing. But of course we all knew!
7. Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
Sabrina and Harvey was that dream teenage power couple that you all used to watch each morning on television after your Ready Brek. The show followed Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina Spellman, the half-witch, as she struggles to cope through her various dilemmas in high school. Her funny aunts Hilda and Zelda made the show, also Zelda was pretty hot. Oh, and the talking cat Salem was pretty funny!
6. Everybody Loves Raymond.
Lovable star Ray Romano and creator Philip Rosenthal based the entire television show loosely around events that occurred in their own wacky lives. The show ran for a whopping 9 seasons, and picked up several awards along the way. There's always a few easy laughs to be picked up in one of these episodes!
5. The King of Queens.
The TV marriage of the century. That question was on every man's mind - HOW could a guy like Doug get a woman like Carrie?! If the show did anything, it gave all men hope for the future, but the on-screen couple worked effortlessly together to develop numerous hilarious scenes. My personal favourite character in the show is Doug's lunatic father-in-law Arthur, who always pops in with a snappy line (fun fact... Arthur is actually Ben Stiller's real life Dad)
There's not a person in the world who doesn't know this show, whether you lived through the 90s or not! Such is the show's popularity and demand that it is still being re-run on a daily basis to keep fans happy. I think everybody turns on the odd episode to bring back a few funny memories of the Ross and Rachel romance. "We were on a BREAK!" If only that line really worked!
3. The Amanda Show.
Cheap, silly, teenage comedy at its finest. One of Dan Schneider's finer creations, this is where Amanda Bynes, Drake Bell and Josh Peck learned their trade. Anybody remember the hilasrious sketches featured on the show such as "Blockblister", "Judge Trudy", "Hillbilly Moment", "Totally Kyle" or "The Klutzes?" As I said, cheap laughs, but at the ages we were at it was pure comedy GOLD!
2. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
The fictionalised version of a young Will Smith gets himself into all sorts of mischief in as the show follows the trials and tribulations of the main character being sent to move in with his wealthy aunt and uncle in Bel Air. The show is certainly up there with the best introductions and possibly catchiest theme song ever - don't lie, we all liked to sing along!
1. Saved by the Bell.
Arguably the best TV show of the 1990s, Saved by the Bell was filled with an excellent cast. The characters were hilarious and the romances kept you glued to the screen. Zach and Kelly were like a teenage version of Friends' Ross and Rachel. Screech, played by Dustin Diamond, added to the plot keeping things interesting with his strange ways and stalker-like crush on Lisa. Great theme song also! "When you wake up in the morning..." Saved by the Bell tops our list!
