'Dancing With the Stars' suggestions who would make our '90s dreams come true

DJ Tanner (aka Candace Cameron Bure) and Winnie Cooper (aka Danica McKellar) will face off in "Dancing With the Stars" in what could be the most epic season yet. What more could a '90s kid wish for?

Plenty, it turns out. Here are some other early '90s TV stars we'd love to see shimmying in primetime (and note: Steve Urkel (aka Jaleel White) already competed on the show!):

Doogie Hauser aka Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris called himself a "teen heartthrob" at the 2011 Tony Awards. Doogie Hauser would be a shoo-in to win, based on his dancing skills from “How I Met Your Mother’s” “ Suits” and the Tony awards . Doogie, please, it’s time to stop typing in that journal and take up some dancing.

Olivia Kendall aka Raven-Symonè

We all remember when Raven-Symoné danced so adorably on “The Cosby Show.” She later showed off her skills on Disney’s “That’s so Raven.” Her former Disney survivor Kyle Massey already competed, it’s time for Raven get on board too.

Joey Russo aka Joey Lawrence

Whoa! Joey Lawrence might now be starring on ABC Family’s “Melissa & Joey” (basically taking the biggest tween stars of the ‘90s), but he will forever be in most millennials’ hearts as Joey, Blossom’s dumb older brother. Bonus points if they bring Six on as well to dance with him.

Darlene Connor aka Sara Gilbert

The blue-collar Connor family could use some lucky breaks especially after the last season of “Roseanne” broke everyone’s hearts. Sara Gilbert starred as the sarcastic Darlene Connor on “Roseanne” from when she was 13 in 1988 until she was 22 in 1997. “Dancing With the Stars” could use Darlene’s monotone.

Ferguson Darling aka Jason Zimbler

Who could forget Clarissa’s annoying younger brother Ferguson? Jonathan Zimbler starred as Ferguson on “Clarissa Explains It All” from 1991 to 1993. If Zimbler is anything like his Dan Quayle-loving character, he would certainly be a shoo-in with the conservative fans of the show.

Bailey Salinger aka Scott Wolf

With several cast members from “Beverly Hills, 90210” having taken to the dance floor, it’s Wednesday-night partner show, “Party of Five,” could use some “DWTS” love as well. Scott Wolf starred as responsible teen-turned alcoholic Bailey Salinger in the 1994-2000 series. The father of three now, Wolf could be on a show that his whole family could watch together.

At 6’8”, it certainly would be hard to find someone to dance with Richard Moll, who starred on “Night Court” from 1984 until 1992. Moll told TMZ said he would “run the other way” if a “Night Court” reunion was in the works, so an appearance on “DWTS” is the only way we’d get to see him slap his head and say “ohhh-kay” again.

Balki Bartokomous aka Bronson Pinchot

Bronson Pinchot introduced us to the “Dance of Joy” on “Perfect Strangers,” and wouldn’t it be wonderful to see it again on “DWTS”? If Larry and Balki could find each other, there’s hope for anything, right?

Known to a whole generation as Mr. Belding, Dennis Haskins has lately been working as a karaoke singer, according to a 2013 episode of VH1’s “Miss You Much.” Karaoke goes hand-in-hand with dancing, no? Zack Morris could probably talk him into it.

Carlton Banks aka Alfonso Ribeiro

The Carlton has been charted in “The Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing.” It’s about time some of those ballroom dancers took it to the dance floor, and who better to bring it there than Alfonso Ribeiro, Carlton himself?

Remember when Leonardo DiCaprio’s moving arc on “Growing Pains” as Luke Bower, an abandoned kid taken in by Mike Seaver? DiCaprio may not have won the Oscar on Sunday (too soon?), and what better way is there to soothe the pain than dancing? We all saw a preview of his dancing skills in “Titanic ,” and it’s not like this could end up any worse for him than his character’s fate in that movie.

ALF

Sure, it’s a stretch but it could happen.

Sure, it’s a stretch but it could happen. All “DWTS” needs is some Bob Seger, and ALF would be there.
