Everyone remembers Pokemon, Power Rangers, and Captain Planet, and in the time of 90’s cartoons, everyone was clamoring to cash in on the success. This led to the creation of tons of cartoons, similar to their predecessor but with even wackier premises. Take a trip down memory lane with Fanpup’s 7 nerdy knockoff cartoons you (probably) loved. You might not recognize them at first glance, but there was no forgetting these theme songs.
