90s shows that’ll bring you back to your childhood

We The Pvblic

Don’t tell us you haven’t watched any of these. You’d be lying if you deny knowing their existence, their significance to your childhood. These shows are the shows that kept you company during your precious 90s childhood and they teach you stories you keep with you until adulthood. And you freak out about it when your fellow now-adults know what show you’re talking about! So here’s some good ol’ nostalgia to hit the childhood g-spot.

The Rugrats


You already know what it is.

Hey Arnold


You will never forget those iconic four words: “Move it Football Head!”

The Wild Thornberrys


The girl who can talk to animals traveling across the world with her crazy parents and angsty sister. Don’t forget Darwin the chimpanzee!

Detective Conan


Your favorite detective Shinichi in both child and adult form and we all know you had a massive crush on the adult Shinichi *wink*

And your favorite part would be when Conan would hide away to use the big, adult voice of Shinichi whenever he would solve another mystery. Those were the good ol’ days.

Ranma 1/2


The half-boy half-girl. He turns into a boy when you douse him with hot water, and Ranma turns into a girl when he falls into cold water due to a cursed magical spring. You loved the love story unraveling between him and Akane, not to mention how badass their martial arts skills were.

Fushigi Yûgi


The Mysterious Play, also known as The Curious Play. This is the story of two teenage girls, Miaka and Yui, who stumble into The Universe of Four Gods when they stumble upon a mysterious book in the National Library. And yeah, the characters are smoking hot too.

Bubu Chacha


Bubu Chacha is a story about a boy and his car-slash-dog but the story behind it is tragic. Bubu is a dog that died due to a fatal accident, although he was resurrected as a toy car for the little boy. It’s about love and friendship and the continuing journey together.

Alice Academy


A story about children and their alices aka powers. Some develop their powers through the academy, some alices are detrimental to the health of the students. So for each and everytime they use it, it reduces their lifespan. But honestly, you’ll fall in love with the test of friendship and the funny lines.
