Which 90's Sitcom is the best?
Comedy of the 90s
1. Seinfeld (1990-1998): Jerry Seinfeld and his friends Elaine, George and Kramer ruled television in the 90s with a show about..... nothing. Kramer was a character on this show that was unique to say the least. Jerry plays as a comedian living in N.Y. and Kramer lives across the hall from him. The memorable moments are many but, my favorites are: The Soup Nazi, Elaine dancing, George playing Frogger, Man Hands, Serenity Now and of course, the famous, Yada, Yada episode. George is always trying to find ways to get out of working, while still getting paid and he kind of likes Elaine all at the same time.
2. Friends (1994-2004): This show portrays six friends living in Manhattan, New York. Rachel, Monica, Joey, Chandler, Phoebe and Ross go through everything together. This sitcom features laughter, cries and love. In that sense, it was a throwback to the old days of a sitcom where you laughed hard but, cried just as hard. My favorite episode is the final episode of Season One when Rachel realizes that she loves Ross and waits on him at the airport.
3. Saved By The Bell (1989-1993): This show only ran four seasons but, it was big in the 90s and also during the reruns. Zack, Lisa, Jesse, Kelly, Screech and A.C. were students at Bayside High School and Mr. Belding is watching everything closely for any rule breakers. This show is constant laughs with Zack leading the pack but Screech is what you would Imagine Kramer from Seinfeld would be during his high school life. The situations were usually silly and rarely serious but the comedy keeps flowing.
4. Growing Pains (1985-1992): Mike Seaver was a high school kid living in Long Island, New York with his parents and sister and brother. The family consists of: Mike, Ben, Carol and the parents, Jason and Maggie. Although this show was full of comedy it had a lot of learning situations as well. The show deals with drugs, Overweight issues and other problems. Mike was always into something with his buddies but everything had a point in the end.
5. Married With Children (1987-1997): Meet the most dysfunctional family ever.. The Bundy family. Al the ladies shoe salesman and his wife Peg who stays at home and does.. nothing. Also, Bud and Kelly are the kids and Kelly is a complete airhead. My favorite episode is the skit that involved the late Sam Kinison playing an angel. Some of the skits on this show were considered raunchy at the time but now it is nothing we haven't seen countless times.
6. The Cosby Show (1984-1992): We all know the Huxtable family led by father Cliff Huxtable played by Bill Cosby. His wife is Claire Huxtable. The show has many laughs with Theo the son and issues as well such as his dyslexia. And the Huxtable daughter Rudy always made you smile. Bill Cosby actually co- composed the shows theme song entitled Kiss Me. All the actors and actresses did an outstanding job but it was truly Bill Cosby who made this show a hit.
7. Fresh Prince of Bel Air (1990-1996): Will Smith goes from the poor life to the rich life in this hilarious sitcom. The butler Jeffrey seems to be into everything and Carlton is the show stopper and the uncredited star of this show. My top show had to be when Carlton was on speed and dancing super fast I just cracked up.
8. Wonder Years (1988-1993): This is the only show I know that has a constant narrator from the star. Kevin Arnold, played by Fred Savage. The show is set in the late 1960s and has parents, Jack and Norma over the household. Kevin has a sister named Karen and an agitating older brother named Wayne. The final episode was an hour long show that showed Winnie and Kevin in different states writing each other. It was a rather personal final skit.
9. Alf (1986-1990): This show is the only Science Fiction comedy besides Mork and Mindy. Alf which means Alien Life Form crashed a space ship into the Tanner family home. The show teaches us about Melmac, where Alf was born and about space in general from Alf's point of view. Also, each episode is a chance for Alf to learn earth, often in very funny situations along the journey. A super corny show to be sure by somewhat addicting and it was stuffed with one liners.
10. Perfect Strangers (1986-1993): Larry from Chicago and his Eastern European cousin live together in an apartment and drive each other crazy at times. The big line always was from Balki who would say, Don't be Ridiculous. They somehow ended up in sticky situations and although it was a corny show it was very entertaining.

Saved by the Bell Theme Song
Screech on Saved By The Bell was like a teenage version of Kramer from Seinfeld. Always acting odd and into all kinds of wild things. You always knew if Kramer or Screech made an appearance it was going to be funny.
