The X-men series history?

I recently began watching my favorite childhood cartoon series. But I wonder, do we get to know the x-men as I would have known if I have read the series?

Also I remember some of the episodes as teenagers? but I don't think this is the same years, if not which series is this? I would be very pleased to get help :)

    The X-Men comic books are not all that well-defined in terms of storyline and character development. Depending on which book you had picked up, you may have gotten a different iteration from what you're familiar with on television. Each writer/artist/editor liked to put their stamp on the series, often altering what had been done before, and Marvel initiated several reboots and alternate storylines to increase sales.

    There have been five X-Men animated attempts (six if you count the anime as two separate series) :

    "Pryde of the X-Men" (1989)

    This pilot was never picked up for a series. It had the best animation (also used in the X-Men arcade game), but some of the voice characterizations were laughable.

    "X-Men: The Animated Series" (1992-97)

    This, I assume, is the series you refer to as favorite, and is commonly regarded as best and most faithful to the original comic books. Being the longest, it also featured the most guest stars. Many of the episodes were actually condensed rewrites of the comic storylines, including 'Days of Future Past' and the epic 'Dark Phoenix Saga'.

    "X-Men: Evolution" (2000-03)

    This incarnation put the characters in their high school years. It was geared toward a younger audience, and adhered less to the original storylines (and less to the laws of physics).

    "Wolverine and the X-Men" (2008-09)

    This series was criticized for not abiding by established character personalities (Wolverine is a leader and Cyclops is a depressed loner), and vacillated between present and future settings, with Prof. X communicating between the two time periods.

    "Marvel Anime" (2011), is a reboot in Japanese animation form, focusing on "X-Men" and "Wolverine", currently with 12 episodes each. These are not yet on video.
