In its day (90s) Rugrats was the bomb with the wee crowd. Nickelodeon had a big hit on its hands. It is a rather unique series in many respects. The most evident is the style of animation. It is different. Certainly not high tech, but cute. Though kids love the show it is written for adults as well. It is not one of those (many) kids’ shows that will drive you up the wall.
Four youngsters sit in their playpen and watch the world around them. Head of the small gang is Tommy Pickles. He is the head because he has the brains and ingenuity. When they want to get out and explore the world they turn to him because he has stashed a screwdriver in diaper to aide in their escape. Red-headed Chuckie does not have that kind of gumption. He is worried/scared about everything. Phil and Lil are the twins, who are pretty much open to doing anything.
Once out these toddlers spend them “free” time exploring the world around them and trying to figure out all that the adults are doing. Some of these adults are their parents and Tommy and Angelica’s babysitting grandfather, who falls asleep all the time.
Some of the stronger episodes this season include “Angelica Breaks a Leg”, “Stu Gets a Job” and “Naked Tommy”
