Poll: Favorite 90's Disney Afternoon Show. (205 votes)

Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears 3%
DuckTales 17%
Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 10%
TaleSpin 7%
Darkwing Duck 20%
Goof Troop 6%
Bonkers 1%
The Shnookums and Meat Funny Cartoon Show 0%
Gargoyles 26%
Aladdin 5%
Timon & Pumbaa (TV series) 2%
Quack Pack 1%
The Mighty Ducks 2%

So if you were a kids of the 90's you probably remember the "Disney Afternoon" block on one of your local channels. Personally I was a big fan of Darkwing Duck but held a deep love for Mighty Ducks cartoon show. I use to draw continuity comics of the Mighty Ducks characters after the series was sadly cancelled. Sound off on what your favorite series was and what made it special to you.

Rescue Rangers, because I remember watching the most of that. Honestly, I spent more time with Nickelodeon during that era.

Darkwing Duck!

This just reminded me of the opener for the cartoons.

Ah, memories.

TaleSpin is probably the right answer if you think about it as a whole.

It's comparable to saying Tetris is the greatest game of all time.

That's tough. I picked Aladdin but I liked them all quite a bit.

Why are none of these on Netflix?

Good question considering they have a deal with disney in place. I wouldn't be surprised if we see most to all of them eventually.

Tough call, but I voted for Gargoyles. That show was the shit.

I'm not counting that Saturday morning third season, though. That was just shit.

I remember really liking Darkwing Duck, even though I don't remember much about the show itself anymore.

I watched about half those shows pretty regularly though.

The Mighty Ducks was awesome! Goof Troop was also great but the Ducks get my vote on the poll.

#10 Edited by handlas (2684 posts) -

All of them are good so can't really choose (well, I chose Rescue Rangers). I remember watching Aladdin before school all the time... what a great show. I don't even remember the movie at all.

Darkwing Duck intro is good. Chip N Dale's is better.

#11 Posted by Silver-Streak (1363 posts) -

I came here to see if Gargoyles was on this list. It was. I was hesitant to vote as I didn't want to be sad with the results. You exceeded my expectations, Giant Bomb, you all rock.

(Also, incase it wasn't clear, Gargoyles is the bestest, while all of these were pretty great.)

#12 Edited by Irvandus (2880 posts) -

Tough pick between Gargoyles and Rescue Rangers. Going to vote Rangers because I remember more of it.

#13 Edited by Royce_McCutcheon (207 posts) -

I hated Disney, I was a Nickelodeon kid. Rocko's Modern Life murders anything on this poll.

The WB stuff like Pinky and the Brain and Freakazoid were better also.

#14 Posted by MightyDuck (1522 posts) -

I was more of a Nickelodean kid growing up, Darkwing Duck was pretty good.

#15 Edited by Zeik (2485 posts) -

@royce_mccutcheon: Nickelodeon was only on cable, so for me growing up that was only something "rich kids" watched.

Pinky and the Brain and Freakazoid were great, but they came several years later.

In Australia, a lot of that Nickelodeon stuff was on ABC - a government owned, free-to-air station with no ads.

Pinky and the Brain and Freakazoid was still mid 90s; like '95/'96. I was 9-10 at that time, still in the appropriate age bracket.

#17 Edited by SycoMantis91 (30 posts) -

I love DuckTales, I love Gargoyles, I love Chip N' Dale, I love Goof Troop, etc. But my favorite, and one of my favorite shows ever, is "The Terror that Flaps in the Night" "The weirdo who sits next to you on the bus", Darkwing Duck!

Side note: It's still astounding how underappreciated that Mighty Ducks show is/was.

#18 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

Man, this shit is weak. Anyone remember

#19 Posted by Verendus (348 posts) -

Timon & Pumba followed by Darkwing Duck.

#20 Posted by SpoogeMcduck (191 posts) -

I went DW Duck since I didn't see Pinky and The Brain. Otherwise they'd be my number one, I have a couple of their seasons on my computer right now :)

#21 Posted by TruthTellah (9150 posts) -

Ch-chi-chi-Chip n' Dale, Rescue Rangers of course.

#22 Posted by Yummylee (21748 posts) -

Timon & Pumbaa, as it's the only one I can recall ever watching. Though despite winning by default, I do remember really enjoying it. I used to do impressions of the Quint character when I was a kid.

I'm more than likely going to buy all of the Duck Tales DVDs; I love that show so much.

#24 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

I just realised I never actively watched any of this. I mean, I'd watch it if it were on but I never really sought it out.

#25 Posted by PrimalHorse (75 posts) -

Gargoyles a million percent, the second season went crazy places. Goliaths chronicles was trash though and even the creator considers it non cannon (also he's going on to create the new star wars animated show so YES)

#26 Posted by audioBusting (1563 posts) -

Goof Troop was the only one I ever watched in my childhood. I didn't like DuckTales -- which was the only other Disney cartoon on local TV -- because I thought the comics were way better.

#27 Posted by Rebel_Scum (720 posts) -

I voted for Ducktales but I have to say that Gummi Bears & Ducktales are 80's cartoons. Just sayin'.

#28 Edited by Scampbell (498 posts) -

I've heard Gargoyles was pretty good, sadly it never actually got to my country.

Scratch that, I had completely forgotten about Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears. Mostly because the name is very different in my native language. I have always been a sucker for most everything Fantasy themed, 'Bubbi Bjørnene' is the still the one that I remember the most.

The theme song still lightens my mood every time I hear it.

#29 Posted by GunstarRed (5207 posts) -

I only watched bits and pieces of most of them, but I remember watching a bunch of Bonkers. I think I enjoyed it because it involved a lot of him being smashed into things and getting hurt in cartoony ways.

I preferred the WB stuff like Animaniacs.

#30 Posted by GeekDown (1170 posts) -

I love almost all of those shows, but TaleSpin was always my favorite.

Oh, shit! I never actually saw that show, just the trailer, but for some reason it looked fucking rad to my younger self.

#32 Posted by ryanwhom (290 posts) -

Im glad to know Im not the only one who never 'got' Bonkers. Like its sorta Roger Rabbit so I should love it, but its some cat raccoon thing instead of Roger and Jessica Rabbit is nowhere to be found so eff that show.

Came here for Gargoyles love, especially the first few seasons before they toned down the adult themes.

#34 Posted by Krataur (364 posts) -

Too hard to choose between DuckTales and Gargoyles. Though other than those two, I didn't watch much Disney anyway, mostly Nickelodeon.

#35 Edited by EXTomar (4760 posts) -

It is kind of a toss up between Gummi Bears and Gargoyles.

#36 Posted by punkxblaze (2987 posts) -

I loved all of these dearly. Don't make me choose.

#37 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4683 posts) -

They are all bad.

#38 Posted by Vanick (332 posts) -

I'm sitting here looking at this list and I can't pick one. I have fond memories of most of these shows. I will say the Gummi Bears theme song gets stuck in my head more than any other though.

#39 Posted by DarthOrange (3864 posts) -

Timon and Pumba was fucking fantastic! Why doesn't it have more votes!?!?!?!?!?

I would watch it in Spanish and it was always great.

#40 Edited by DrFlapjack (234 posts) -

So many memories! If I had to choose, maybe Gargoyles, but I think I watched Aladdin the most as it was on right after school.

#41 Posted by CornBREDX (5347 posts) -

I liked most all of them.

#42 Posted by wjb (1665 posts) -

Toss up between TailSpin and Darkwing Duck. Everything else after those early 90's shows were too young for me.

I'll say TailSpin because they took Jungle Book characters and made them into bush pilots, air pirates, and corrupt businessmen in suits.

Fucking Louie owned a nightclub.

#43 Posted by Lucien21 (108 posts) -

Darkwing Duck

#44 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2226 posts) -

Gargoyles was cool to watch when I was a kid.

#45 Posted by EchoEcho (828 posts) -

Fuck, I can't choose. I just can't.

#46 Posted by Ryuku_Ryosake (213 posts) -

I have to make the terrible admission that I didn't watch any of these shows as a kid. I was a cable kid show I pretty much only watched Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network except for our local early morning Fox which had Power Rangers, Beetleborgs, Digimon, and Batman: The Animated Series. Also watch are local WB pretty much exclusively for Pokemon and Jackie Chan Adventures.

But on the topic at hand I know I had watched some Goof Troop and Gargoyles. I really liked what I saw of Gargoyles but I never knew when or where it was airing. So I only watched a bit of it. It was pretty good so I voted for it.

My true childhood jam was definitely Dexter's Lab. Closely followed by Batman: TAS and Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Gargoyles, but Darkwing Duck is a close second.
