Back in the good old days this thing was the tits. In Finland you'll be laughed at if you're born after 80's and you haven't seen this one at least once in your life, it's really that big of a thing.

It's basically a variation of Seven Samurais with dogs. Sometimes very crappy animation, but the story is very memorable and the soundtrack will blow your mind with awesomeness.

Every kid in Finland since the late 80's has seen this show at least once in their lifetime, I personally saw it two or three times when I was kid. Around the World has traditionally had multiple highly successful re-runs per decade and all the physical releases are always sold out in just days or weeks.

This also has especially well made Finnish dubs, including a lot of huge names of that era.

BTW. Avoid the sequels. They suck.

This is where my generation found Hayao Miyazaki, years before Mononoke and Spirited away. The animation quality is still crazy good, but the writing lacks big time. Since this was meant for kids they focused more on goofy humor and fast paced action rather than interesting mysteries and crime solving.

This one is a no-brainer. Everything about this show is legendary.

Horror for kids. I remember being very disappointed when I found out that the original was a comedy. A very overlooked 90's classic.

This thing was dubbed by the same guys who did Biker Mice from Mars, so you know it kicks ass.

Spin-off for the Batman TAS. I really enjoyed this one, at times even more than the original one.

Maybe little less known show outside Scandinavia, but in the 90's and still to this day this thing is hugely popular, and for a very good reason. It's much more intelligent and adult than most kids' shows, it takes it's audience seriously and even has some very dark and depressive turns every now and then.

The Finnish dubs with this one are legendary.

Disney goes Batman TAS and it's awesome yet incredibly underrated.

The best thing about this show was the manly deep voice of Golyath, provided by the black guy from John Carpenter's The Thing.

This thing was huge in Finland back in the day. Partly because of the exceptionally well made translation which added in lots of local sly humor and wordplay.

One of the best written shows ever. I actually enjoy this more today than what I did back in the day.

It's been over 20 years since I last saw this one and I still remember surprisingly lot. There was this one episode where Peter stole shadows from those pirates, then there was this thing with the Hook's severed hand, pirates turning into fairies, the Hook himself "dying", etc.

Lots of good memories. Sadly this one hasn't been shown on local television since and I don't think there exists any real dvd boxes around, so there really is no way to watch this stuff again anytime soon.

Amazingly well written and animated show. Underrated as hell.

I wasn't so sure about this one until I read an interesting analysis someone had written about the style of this show. The sheer creativity alone should make this one mandatory for everybody.

In the 90's everyone tried to copy Ren & Stimpy but only few ever got it right.

These guys really tried to make their of Batman TAS and they nearly nailed it. This show was amazing but sometimes very confusing with all the mutant and dimension stuff.

The final 10-20 episodes are especially good. If I remember correctly, this wasn't supposed to be the real ending but the following season was canceled and the thing with Mary Jane was never properly finished.

I remember this one being huge back in the day, but the production system wasn't perfected yet and sometimes the animation quality varies a lot from episode to episode.

One of the wackiest and most surreal animated comedies ever made. This one I really didn't understand as a kid, but once I got little older I fell in love with the thing.

A little known Polish puppet animation, also huge classic in Finland. Partly because it was dubbed by Heikki Määttänen, a dude with one of the sweetest voices I have ever heard in my life.

Whoever made this little psychedelic gem wasn't right in the head, man.

Funny trivia: in Finland "Doctor Snuggles" is synonym to "drug dealer".

Also, this was dubbed by Heikki Määttänen, the man with a golden voice. Even though there's multiple characters, the legend handled it just by himself. No complaints.

Out of the two Sonic animated series I saw as a kid, this was by far the superior one. It still pisses me off that this had a cliffhanger ending and they canceled the upcoming episodes.

A very surreal yet surprisingly bland and forgettable show. The other one is much, much better.

Better than Sonic for sure, but that isn't saying much since the bar is very low to begin with. Just forgettable and basic little animated show for kids.

Better than Pokemon. This actually had some plot and the animation was superb.

Sadly though, this one was raped by legendary bad memeworthy Finnish dubs that made the whole thing basically unwatchable.

If you want to torture yourself, go to youtube and search "Agapio digimon". Thank me later.

With better dubs this one's pretty good.

I used to like this one when it was new. Then after 20-30 episodes it started repeating itself fast. I mean, there really isn't any real plot or character development, it's just marketing the merchandise like those crappy 80's shows.

Favorite episodes: everything involving Sabrina. Lavender Town episode was the absolute best IMO.

My humble tribute to all my childhood favorites from the 90's.

Edit. Originally "Favorite Animated Series From My Childhood" but since I started adding some of the lesser ones I changed the title.

Oh man 'Peter Pan & The Pirates', what a great show that was, "underrated as hell" indeed
