The 90s! Sweet-beautiful 90s how do I miss you. With your crop tops, denim jackets, overalls, bucket hats, and acid wash jeans. Then the Nintendo 64, Tamagotchi, the first DVD player, Trix cereal (when it had fun shapes), 3D Doritos, and can’t forget about Tickle Me Elmo. Ahh, good times, folks but the MVP were the cartoons! Every Saturday morning little Buzzkill would rush straight to the TV, still rocking the Scooby-Doo onesie with his large overflowed bowl of cereal preparing to watch X-Men on Fox Kids. This article is for all the kids grown up and for the fans of the shows. There have been some cartoon show adaptations into movie flops but there’s still hope. I can feel it, and with that said here is a list of 90s Cartoons That Deserve Live-Action Movies.
Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?
A movie about a rogue agent that steals treasures for the fun of it; from across the globe while she’s on the hunt by her former organization. Carmen Sandiego, the greatest thief that has ever lived. Actress, Carmela Zumbado (YOU Season 2) would be perfect as the scarlet anti-hero.
Take Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles then replace the turtles part with badass skateboarding, mutated teenage-sharks and you roughly have Street Shark. Lowkey, Street Sharks is way cooler and they yell – “Jawsome” and “Shark Attack”!
Who is Freakazoid? Imagine the super speed of The Flash, the humor of Deadpool, Looney Tunes powers, having the knowledge of the entire internet.
SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron:
A world set in the future about anthropomorphic feline vigilantes called “Razor” and “T-Bone” that fly their custom high-tech jet to fight crime in – must I continue?
Make this a Netflix original starring Aubrey Plaza as the dry-witty teenager that is Daria.
Captain Planet and the Planeteers
Let’s level with one another here. Does the original cartoon have a beautiful message of saving and protecting the planet? Yes, but we all really want that dark-comedic version with Don Cheadle as Captain Planet as he turns thugs and the innocent into trees.
Space Ghost Coast to Coast
A washed-up superhero operating in outer space runs an inappropriate talk show with celebrity guests and other classic cartoon characters. Have Bruce Willis as Space Ghost, please!
There have been rumors for Gargoyles to receive a live adaption on the big screen and it’s about time. This is for all the monster fans. Keeping fingers crossed that this comes to life and keeping the original voice actors would be the cherry on top.
Give the people Chris Hemsworth as Bravo chasing after the chicas in a summer blockbuster.
Courage the Cowardly Dog
Seeing the pink skittish dog from the town of Nowhere face some recurring monsters from the cartoon and have guest appearances from slasher villains in a live-action Courage movie would be awesome!
The Powerpuff Girls
Not a clue why this hasn’t become a movie already. Superpowered triplets that have a rogues gallery that rivals Batman’s for crying out loud!
