Forget Shinchan, Doremon, Spongebob, and so on, our Indian entertainment was enough to beat the Western shows. Even after having Hollywood dubbed series and shows available on the television, our Indian childhood tv programs have always been the icing on the cake. 90’s kids have got some good memories with the iconic shows which aired in the old times.
Here is a list of the most iconic shows right from our golden old days. This article will take you back to your memory lane. So what are we waiting for, let’s get started, eh?
- Malgudi Days
Every episode of Malgudi Days taught us some highly essential values. It was a pain to wait for them to air, but always a pleasure to watch its episodes. Honestly, the lessons we learned from this show did make a difference in our lives. If you have not given this show a watch, you must have read about it. But, if you’ve skipped this show, then you definitely missed a spark in your 90’s.
Who cares about Western entertainment when Indian shows like Shaktimaan were incredibly luring and appealing. Let’s accept the fact that avengers are nothing in front of Shaktiman, and he has been the real boss. Shaktimaan was the first-ever superhero we Indians admired and loved. Yes, he was the coolest dude ever. For a 90’s kid, a hero with a red costume would be shaktimaan and not spiderman for sure.
- Shaka Laka Boom Boom
Just like how we desired to have a best friend like Son Pari, we were a little selfish for wanting the magical pencil used in Shaka Laka Boom Boom as well. Certain characters in the show played a subtle role as jealous beings. Sanju was actually a lucky guy. Let’s accept this; we’ve all been jealous of Sanju and his magical pencil. We all constantly desired to have a pencil that brought us everything in a minute.
- Shhh… Koi Hai
Right from the haunted residences, and the awful looking characters to the evil spirits, this show was a blend of all. It was always a rollercoaster ride to watch every thrilling episode with the three kickass ghostbusters in this show. The end of every episode left us with suspense, and the wait for the next episode was always worth it. This show was a blessing to all of us.
Shararat has undoubtedly been one of the shows from the girls watchlist. The three butterflies from this show were blessed with some extraordinary superpowers. Sring Bling Sarvaling… yes, if you got this right, you had a fantastic childhood. Let’s not forget that Karanvir Bohra was the man we all had a crush on.
- Sarabhai VS. Sarabhai
This show was a perfect usual yet unique drama with endless comedy. The show revolved around the lives of Sarabhai’s. The family was a complete pack of explosives. One character being sophisticated, while the other was being all humorous, there’s so much we miss about this show.
- Great Indian Laughter Challenge
The Great Indian Laughter Challenge was a power pack of absolute laughter and comedy. Great Indian Laughter Challenge was the only stand-up comedy show back then. With their exceptional entertainment, this show managed to run five long seasons. While they initially started this show back in 2005, their final season was launched in 2017. Watching Akshay Kumar as a judge was again cherry on the top for this show. You May Also Like Batman And Bollywood!

If you remember this show, you indeed feel the concept of this serial repeating in today’s world. Ever thought this comedy-drama will depict the actual reality of the present scenario? Back then, Mussadilal had to go through problems and face a lot of tantrums to get his government job done as the corruption was at the peak all thanks to the inefficient employees. Isn’t it still the same?
This show was the best one out of all. When Mogli got released in the Hindi version, it received a mesmerizing craze.
