The 1990s Changed Animation

MTV relaunched Beavis and Butthead, one of the iconic cartoons of the 1990s.  Looking back at that decade, it revolutionized animation, especially on television.

Here's a list of the pivotal cartoon shows from 1990 through 1999.  The Simpsons technically started in 1989, but it's definitely a trendsetter of the 90s.  The greatest of them all was Batman: The Animated Series, a show for all ages.  Some of these were really little gems, like Eddie Murphy's The PJs and the hilarious The Critic.
