For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Rugrats

Created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain, Rugrats arrived on August 11th 1991 and lasted for nine seasons (172 episodes). The final episode of the original series aired on August 1st 2004 giving the show a thirteen year run.

The show follows the adventures of a group of babies led by Tommy Pickles (voiced by E.G. Daily), his best friend Chuckie Finster (voiced by Christine Cavanaugh), twins Phil and Lil DeVille (both voiced by Kath Soucie) and Tommy’s elder cousin Angelica (Cheryl Chase). As the series developed other friends and relatives would be introduced.

What made Rugrats unique was that you often saw the same story through the eyes of the grown up characters as well as how it was perceived by the babies, who were often naïve in their understanding of what was happening. This helped cover a number of very deep subjects in ways that a young audience could access. None were more tearful than Chucky trying to understand why he didn’t have a mother…

Following the original series and some movies, the characters appeared in a new show All Grown Up which ran for five seasons (55 episodes) between 2003-2008.

On July 16th 2018, Nickelodeon announced a revival of the series to be executive produced by the original creative team of Klasky, Csupó, and Germain. It was further announced that Paramount Pictures had greenlit a live-action/CGI hybrid feature film, currently set to premiere in 2021.
