This animated series created by Howie Mandel, originally ran from September 8, 1990 to February 23, 1998 on FOX Kids for 80 episodes of 30 minutes each.

It was focused on daily life of four-year-old Bobby Generic and his overactive imagination on how he sees the world. The creator, Mandel also provided the voice of both Bobby and his father Howard Generic, who looked like a cartoon version of Mandel himself. Bobby faced the same trials as most young kids, but dealt with it through comedy and laughter.

Each episode often consisted of a short live-action segment either before or after the main story (and sometimes both before and after). The segment included Mandel describing some aspect of the story and often relating it back to his personal childhood.

Sometimes during these segments, the character of Bobby would appear in animated form and converse with Mandel. Other times, a live action child would appear and exchange words with Mandel. Endings of the episodes also features Mandel talking to the audience about the preceding episode. In some parts, Bobby used to talk to the audience telling his perspective on life.

Its popularity led Fox release a video game for Super NES in which Bobby must clean his room, and as he is cleaning it he starts daydreaming about a toy, after the players beats a level, Bobby has another daydream about another toy that he puts away.

Perhaps not the most popular animated show of the decade, but it has its share of history as one of the representative cartoons of the 90s.
