Every State's Favorite '90s Kids Cartoon
June 1, 2018
Take a break from doing The Macarena and tear the tags off your Beanie Babies because it's time to head back to the 1990s. The decade was great for many things but one in particular was the animated shows that aired then. From Animaniacs to Dragon Ball Z, the 90s had something for everyone when it came to cartoons. Now, we know exactly which 90s cartoon is each state's favorite.
Using IMDb to create a list of the most popular and highest rated animated kids series released in the 90s, and comparing that with Google Trends, FrontierBundles.com was able to figure out each state's favorite toon.
Topping the list was Batman: The Animated Series, which was a fave in five states: Arizona, Iowa, Kansas, Montana and Wyoming. After that though, the states were all over the board with what they liked the most.

If you're wondering why The Simpsons didn't rank - the series actually premiered in 1989 so it wasn't included. As for South Park and Family Guy, they were excluded since they're rated TV-14 and the researchers only wanted to examine kids shows.
