Top 10 Superhero Cartoons of the Early 90’s

Waking up on Saturday morning, finding the most sugary cereal in the cupboard and building a blanket-y nest in front of the TV.  As a child in the 90’s that was the life.  Flipping through channel by channel of fishing programs, cooking shows, Saved by the Bell reruns/knock-offs, and pre-k programming, to land on the…

Martin.  It wasn’t nice, or delicate.  And though my feelings on the overall series have not changed.  It is still long, drawn out, full of unnecessary elements, and will inevitably lead to a disappointing ending.  I feel…
