Who are these cartoon characters?

Can you identify these dancing cartoon teenagers?

I've seen these two guys dancing in any number of memetically mutated videos and gifs, so much so that I'm starting to wonder, for no reason I can discern, what show they're from.

If someone could enlighten me, I'd appreciate it, and my brain could go on to wondering about something more important, which is to say practically anything else in the entire universe.

They look to me like the Donny and Joey from the old New Kids on the Block cartoon.

And if you don't believe me, here's Youtube.

Ah, thanks. I was spared that particular crime against Saturday.

It's Jon and Joey. I have no shame.

I think ladygypsy is right, that's Joey and Jon not Donny and Joey. I just watched the first part of Gator's Youtube clip.

I think you had to be a certain age to catch that cartoon, old enough to like NKOTB but young enough to still watch Saturday cartoons. I was in that category. Wearing hot pink spandex shorts and a T shirt with splatter paint that probably glowed in the dark.

Damn you, metafilter. That was 90 seconds of my life I will regret for eternity.
