McKids and Tiny Toon Adventures on NES are freaking amazing.

Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure for the Genesis is also good. Alladin, Quackshot, and Castle of Illusion also great for the Genesis as mentioned.

I used to think that was tough, but after playing it pretty recently, it was relatively easy. I like the SNES version of Aladdin a lot more, honestly!

Donkey Kong Country feels like the most glaringly obvious answer.

Yeah, the difficulty spike in DKC2 and DKC3 is pretty big, the original is a cake walk in comparison.

Except for one mine cart level in particular, I'm inclined to agree.

Anyway, more to consider:

Adventures of Yogi Bear
Super Adventure Island
The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse
The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey and Minnie
Hook
Porky Pig's Haunted Holiday
