Who were the best TV characters of the ’90s?

This list has the best television characters from all those classic 1990’s TV shows.

It was the decade we met Bart Simpson, Cosmo Kramer, and Frasier Crane. The top TV show characters of the 90’s included family-focused favorites like Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the obnoxious but lovable Steve Urkel, and Fresh Prince Will Smith. Nineties TV introduced many children’s characters as well: Tommy Pickles, Batman, Doug.

This decade had an air of innocence and lightheartedness. The top characters of the 90’s were, for the most part family-friendly, uplifting, and hilarious. Who will ever forget the girl-next-door Topanga Lawrence, and the importance of having an older, wiser soul rooting for you, like Mr. Feeney? The innocence of “Clarissa Explains it All,” “Family Ties,” and “Blossom,” reinforced family values, and other top ’90s shows like “Friends,” “Roseanne,” and “The Cosby Show,” left us feeling like we were never alone in the world.
