The 90’s was an era filled with television shows that kept us hooked to our seats! From Dekh Bhai Dekh to Hip Hip Hurray, the spread promised something for everyone!! Here are 21 tv shows from the 90’s you should be ashamed you forgot about
1. DEKH BHAI DEKH
The shows revolved around the Divan family, as they tackle the everyday troubles of a regular household. The producers made sure that there was a comic twist to every problem they faced. And it was this satirical approach that won our hearts.
2. HUM PAANCH
A troubled father of five who is somehow always pushed into trouble because of his lovely lot. Now that’s a recipe for legendary TV! From a feminist to a beauty queen to a nerd and a tomboy…the show makes sure that you find yourself in these characters!
3. SHRIMAN SHRIMATI
And this one took the phrase “love thy neighbour” a little too seriously!! It was always fun watching Keshav Kulkarni and Dilruba get in trouble with their wives over their affection for their neighbour’s wife!
4. OFFICE OFFICE
this one is so epic, it doesn’t need any description. Pankaj Kapoor, do we need to say anymore!?
5. HIP HIP HURRAY
We all remember this one quite clearly, don’t we? It was the forbidden watch of the 90’s kids. do you watching it secretly even though you weren’t allowed! 😉

Alif Laila was a fairy tale story put to life. Beautiful character, great story lines , amazing morals to flying carpets, magic lamps , fairies and much more!!
10. FILMY CHAKKAR
This one became an ultimate hit owing to hatke character! A family completely obsessed with fims to the level that it resorts to filmy dialogues for everyday troubles, that has got to be amazingggg!!!!!!
Another one of our favourite fantasy series has got to be Chandrakanta! Kroor Singh , Roopwati, the snake queen, this tale promised a rollercoaster ride!
Superman and Spiderman are too generic. Us Indians have our own personal favorite and it’s none other than — Shaktimaan!!! He was every 90’s kid’s idol and still remains so!
13. CAPTAIN VYOM
Stars, galaxy, lots of fighting and MILIND SOMAN. Do we need to say more!
14. VIKRAM BETAL
This one rightly portrays the rich layers of Indian mythology! The tales of king Vikram and vampire Betal are spooky yet entertaining all at the same time!
15. TU TU MAI MAI
A boisterous mother in law and an equally loud Bahu, now that is WARRR!!! And Devaki and Radha gave us nothing short of it. The sweet and constant bickering of these two lovely ladies is sure to make you fall in love with them.
16. MALGUDI DAYS
Malgudi days is based on the works of famous writers R.K Narayan. Most of the stories were one episode long but all of them definitely left a lasting effect.
17. TAKESHI’S CASTLE
Javed Jafri’s hilarious commentary clubed with extremely funny visuals of people falling on their butts here and there is what Takeshi’s castle was all about! Even though not Indian , it was every 90’s kids favourite!
18. THE LEGEND OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE
How many of you remember this one? This was the ultimate game show that ever aired everrrr!! I’m sure I’m not the only one rooting for a re-run.
19. RAJA AUR RANCHO
Many ddetective shows come and go, but how many of them have a monkey for a sidekick!? Raja aur rancho is what they call revolutionary television!
This one might not have been a kid’s favourite, but it sure was good television! Mandira Bedi as Shanti taught us everything about female empowerment.
DHYAAN SE DEKHIYE ISS CHEHRE KO!!!!!!!!!
No list can be complete without the mention of this chehera! Sansani made it it’s life’s goal to unmask every darinde kaa chehera and gave us news goals forever!!!
