23 TV Shows 90's Kids Will Reminisce On

Throwbacks that will make you wish you were a kid again.

Kids born in, or have lived through, the '90s seem to have certain type of pride that no other decade seems to have. Us '90s kids brag about how only we remember certain aspects of our childhood and argue that if you weren't a part of it then you wouldn't understand. Being a '90s kid, I have to agree that not everyone will understand, especially today's children. However, this is a way for us to remember and share our childhood favorites with the world.

1. Full House

The Tanners were everyone's favorite family. This show was all about showing family values by incorporating real life situations. Full House taught us that family would always be there to help us out regardless of the decisions we make. If you didn't like this show then "how rude." Even after twenty years, this show lives on as Fuller House, check it out on Netflix. It will definitely have you saying, "Have mercy."

2. Doug

Doug was just your typical boy who journaled about his life. This simplistic, yet entertaining TV show showed us how to confront tough situations such as bullying or relationship problems. It was Doug who boosted our self-esteem, told us the harm of bullying and rumors and enlightened us on relationships.

3. Rugrats

Who knew talking babies would make such a great market? These babies knew their way around the block and always were able to get themselves out of sticky situations. I think we're all glad we don't have a cousin like Angelica. They were the example of how children’s imagination can make anything an adventure.

4. Boy Meets World

A show about friends going through life together. We watched them grow up from immature, Jr. High schoolers to high school graduates. Corey, Shawn and Topanga showed us the true meaning of friendship.

5. All That

The original live-action sketch comedy show mixed comedy with musical performances always kept us entertained.

6. Keenan and Kel

A spinoff from everyone’s favorite skit — GoodBurger, Kenan and Kel had a special way of making everyone laugh, even if it was just taking burger orders.

7. Rocket Power

Just four friends living their lives by the beach and taking sports to the next level. I think we were all jealous of Otto and Reggie’s sick tricks.

8. The Amanda Show

This show consisting of short comedy skits was a guaranteed laugh each episode. Although I don’t know if Moody even found her mom in that hot air balloon.

9. Spongebob

What seems like the most iconic television show of the '90s into the 2000s. Spongebob showed us that you can be happy with the things you have, even if it’s just a pineapple and a snail.

10. The Proud Family

Penny was just your typical teenage girl, facing typical teenage problems. But the Proud family was always there to pick her up when she was down, proving that family is everything and will always be there for you.

11. Recess

The playground can be a hard place to figure out, but Recess showed us how to protect other kids from bullies. In addition, they we able to teach us how to develop individually while also knowing when to conform.

12. CatDog

If you think having a sibling is frustrating, imagine being conjoined to yours. Even though Cat definitely had the brains, Dog always ran the show and dragged Cat behind, literally. If you don’t believe that opposites attract you haven’t seem these two because although they couldn’t be more different, the brothers are best friends.

13. Lilo and Stitch

This was the wonderful, loving relationship between a girl and her dog…. I mean extraterrestrial experiment. At any rate, Lilo and Stitch taught us to care, especially about Ohana.

14. Hey Arnold

This boy and his football-shaped head did his best to solve problems for the people around him. Arnold taught us how to be nice and polite to everyone, even those who seem to hate him (cough, Helga, cough)

15. That’s So Raven

With her mischievous and entertaining tactics to help prevent the things she saw in the future, we met a girl who was always trying to help. But who often also fell short of her goal. I think we can all relate to Raven in this regard.

16. Lizzie McGuire

A personal favorite, Lizzie McGuire was an inspiring example of how to handle the middle school roller-coaster. She taught us that you don’t have to be the most popular girl in school to have people who care about you. You could always count on Lizzie to say what she was thinking. And if she didn’t say it, you know that annoying, little cartoon would.

17. Even Stevens

Ah yes, the dysfunctional family that made our families look normal. Even Stevens was nothing short of mindless television starring a ridiculous goofball that everyone loved. Well, everyone except Ren. Oh, and we all can agree that Beans was way ahead of his time in obsessing over bacon.

18. Phil of The Future

The Diffy’s time machine threw them back from 2121 to 2004. But even in his awkward ways, we had a special place in our hearts for his future self. Hopes are high that we will see him in five years.

19. Wild Thornberrys

Eliza and her family were always taking us on wild adventures and explorations. This show helped our inner explorer come out. I think we all wanted to talk to animals like Eliza.

20. Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide

I think we can all thank Ned, Cookie and Moze for helping us prepare for middle school and expecting everything from let-downs to a wild weasel terrorizing our school.

21. Zoey 101

Zoey 101 was the show that made children ask their parents to go to boarding school. Not to mention the fact that Chase proved that you can get out of the friend-zone.

22. Drake and Josh

“Hug me brotha!” These two brothers were one of the funniest duos of our time. Whether it was Helen’s rude comments toward Josh or Megan’s devious pranks on the boys, each episode always held a laugh. Drake and Josh helped develop the humor of an entire generation.

23. Kim Possible

“Call me, beep me if you want to reach me...” Kim Possible was a fiery and fierce character who was always wondering what the sitch was. Kim, Ron and Rufus were the dream team. And let’s face it, who didn’t want a naked mole rat after watching this show?

To the guy that shot my brother...


To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.
