If you grew up in the 1990′s, you likely have many nostalgic memories of the shows that were around at the time. Some of the favorites were Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Xena Warrior Princess. Everyone had their own personal favorite, but these shows were popular among kids and adults, which put them in a class of their own.
Fresh Prince of Bel Air featured the goofy Will Smith as “Will” who is an inner-city kid sent to live with his rich relatives in Bel Air. His interactions with Uncle Phil and his cousins Carlton, Hilary and Ashley are hilarious. Another favorite character was the butler, Geoffrey.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a series about four turtles that came into contact with a mysterious substance called Ooze. They then transform into creatures that can walk upright, talk, and love pizza. They are turned to ninja masters by a wise rat named Splinter. The bad guy in the series is Shredder, who is trying to take over the world.
This series was so popular it resulted in movies, clothing, toys, and other things can purchase on sites like teenagemutantninjaturtles.com.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a cult classic that centered on Buffy, a typical high school student who is chosen to fight vampires by her mentor, Giles. Together with her friends Xander and Willow she deals with her two identities: student and vampire hunter. Unlike Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this series started out as a movie first.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a show that is still popular today, but is known as just Power Rangers. They are a group of four teenagers that are recruited to fend off the evil doings of Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd with all their monsters. It was a very action packed and exciting series.
Finally, Xena Warrior Princess was a show that had many followers. Few could forget Xena’s warrior cry. Played by Lucy Lawless, Xena sets out on many quests to earn her title as warrior princess. She and her sidekick Gabrielle take down enemies, and even fight some Gods.
The 90’s were a wonderful time for TV, and these are just a few of the great shows of that time. In fact, quality shows from the 90′s seem to be replaced by countless reality shows in 2013. Thankfully many of the series still show on some cable channels, and are also sold as box sets so they can still be enjoyed.
