’90s TV Shows & Movies to Watch with the Kids

They just don’t make Nickelodeon shows like they used to, do they? If you’re dreaming of the ’90s TV shows you used to watch back in the day, we have great news—many of them are available to stream right in your living room. Scroll through our favorites below, and be sure to enjoy them with your own kids!

1. Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Netflix

Everyone had a favorite—Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Billy, Trini, or Tommy. There have been many versions since, but nothing compares to the OG Rita Repulsa fighting rangers.

Recommended age: 7 & up. 

Available on Netflix.

2. Doug

Disney

This '90s classic had you wearing your underwear outside of your pants just like Doug Funny's superhero alter ego, Quailman. And let's not forget the love of his life, Patty Mayonnaise. 

Recommended age: 7 & up. 

Available on Hulu and Amazon.

3. Rugrats

Nickelodeon

These babies may not have been potty-trained, but they could easily pick the lock on a playpen. They're also the reason "Halt, I am Reptar" has been stuck in your head for decades.

Recommended age: 5 & up. 

Available on Hulu and Amazon.

4. Bill Nye the Science Guy

Disney

Bill was always cooking up the coolest experiments in his blue lab coat and was never without a bow tie. His show is fantastically fun way for kids to learn about science. 

Recommended age: 7 & up. 

Available on Netflix.

5. Hey Arnold!

Nickelodeon

This kid—accurately nicknamed "football head"—took on your average fourth-grade adventures with his pal Gerald while dodging school bully Helga (who was actually in love with him). 

Available on Hulu and Amazon.

6. The Magic School Bus

Netflix

Miss Frizzle was a zany teacher with a beehive hairdo, some seriously odd outfits, and probably should have had her license revoked (underwater driving?), but she commanded the smartest bunch of kids around. 

Recommended age: 5 & up. 

Available on Netflix.

7. Dinosaurs

ABC

"I'm the Baby, Gotta Love Me" was one of the '90s most iconic songs and it all came from this inside look at the prehistoric Sinclair family—including Earl, Fran, Charlene, Robbie, and Baby. 

Recommended age: 10 & up. 

Available on Hulu and ABC.com

8. Clarissa Explains It All

YouTube

The '90s style was alive and well in this coming-of-age show featuring sarcastic host Clarissa, her brother Ferguson, and her friend Sam who clearly didn't know how to use the front door (always the window).

Recommended age: 8 & up. 

Available on Amazon. 

9. The Baby-Sitters Club

Disney

There was a book series and a movie, but no one can forget about the TV show with iconic episodes like "Dawn and the Dream Boy," and "Stacey Takes a Stand." 

Recommended age: 7 & up.

Season 1 available on Hulu

10. Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Nickelodeon

This show was so eerie, we had to watch it during the day. The members of the Midnight Society somehow snuck out at night, told ghost stories, threw a bucket of water on the fire, and scampered back home.

Recommended age: 10 & up. 

Available on YouTube.

11. Boy Meets World

YouTube

Cory, Topanga, Shawn, Eric, and Morgan too—this '90s classic walked us through our everyday problems with a little bit of humor and a whole lot of Feeny. 

Recommended age: 10 & up. 

Available on Hulu

12. Kenan & Kel

Nickelodeon

If you watched this '90s show, you know who loved orange soda. Full of silly laughs, it's all about the humor with this one. 

Recommended age: 8 & up. 

Available at Amazon

13. Sister, Sister

ABC

These twin sisters were separated at birth and adopted by separate parents, but after running into each other in a mall, move in together as one big family with dad Ray and mom Lisa.  

Recommended age: 9 & up.

Available on xfinitystream.

14. Harriet the Spy

Harriet the Spy

15. Saved by the Bell

YouTube

You likely had a huge crush on Zack Morris and learned all the Bayside cheers from Kelly and Lisa. Slater was the man of your dreams, Screech made you laugh, and that episode where Jessie was "So Excited" has stuck with you even today. 

Recommended age: 9 & up. 

Available on Hulu

16. Mouse Hunt

tubi

This fun movie is about two unlucky brothers who inherit a crumbling mansion, and a determined mouse along with it.
