16 Popular Holiday Episodes Only Recognizable To Real 90s Kids

We loved our cartoons in the 90s and when we weren't waking up early on Saturday mornings to catch our favorites, we were racing home for the after-school shows we all loved to talk about the next day.

Christmas episodes were extra special - sometimes they were longer, sometimes they were two parts that we'd have to wait a whole 24 hours to see how it ended!
