People Think Hey Arnold! Is Best After-School Show From The '90s

What a great way to unwind after a long day.

One of the best moments of the day when we were at school was rushing home at the end of the day to watch our favourite shows. Some of the best after school shows were from the 90s and now 90s kids have named Hey Arnold! as their favourite.

In case you have forgotten about the little, yellow haired fourth grader and his friends got up to, here's a reminder. Hey Arnold! is an American animated series that aired on Nickelodeon from October 1996 to June 2004 and centred on the life of Arnold who lived with his grandparents in the city.

Hey Arnold! aired between 1996 and 2004 (

In each episode we would see Arnold and his friends navigate through life, going to school and having fun around the city of Hillwood.

Hey Arnold! made its UK debut on 30 October 1996 on CITV.

The series was so popular Nickelodeon green-lit a movie 12 years after the show ended - and when the show's original fans were likely all grown up - to carry on the story of Arnold and his friends. Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie carried on where the show left off when it premiered in 2017.

There were always so many to choose from; Arthur, Rugrats, Recess were always top choices but not all of the shows on the list are Boy Meets World, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and many other sitcoms brightened up a long school day.

Rugrats followed the adventures of a group of babies (

Rugrats, the animated show about a group of babies and their day-to-day adventures, is in second place. Tommy, Chuckie, twins Phil and Lil and Angelica kept us entertained for over 170 episodes across nine seasons between 1991 and 2004. Some younger 90s kids may also be fond of the spin-off show All Grown Up! in which Tommy and his friends were teens.

Boy Meets World is also in the top 10. The live-action sitcom was a coming-of-age show centred on Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), his best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) and love interest (and future wife) Topanga (Danielle Fishel). Cory and Topanga would return as parents to Riley (Rowan Blanchard), and Auggie (August Maturo) in the Disney Channel spin-off Girl Meets World.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch (

Speaking of reboots and spin-offs, the original 1996 Sabrina The Teenage Witch sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart as the eponymous witch makes an appearance in the top 10. Gen-Z are probably more familiar with the popular albeit darker Netflix drama iteration, the aptly named Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The final bunch episodes will drop on the streamer on New Years Eve this year.

A show featured on the list that is about to get the reboot treatment is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Inspired by Will Smith's own life, the then new actor and rapper starred as a fictionalised version of himself - a street-smart teenager born in raised in West Philadelphia (just like the opening song tells us). Will's character is sent to move in with his wealthy uncle and aunt in their Bel Air mansion where he hilariously encounters several culture clashes with his cousins and new school friends.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was one of Will Smith's first acting roles (

A reunion with the original cast is set to air later this year on HBO Max while a reboot, which will be a gritty drama, has been given a two season order by the streaming network Peacock.
