Trivia

A running gag in the show is that the babies say "Bob" instead of "God". For example "A baby is a gift from a Bob." See more »

Goofs

Chuckie's Saturn shirt is usually a yellow planet with a red ring. In the first season, a common animation error is for the colors to be vice-versa - with the colors sometimes changing between scenes. See more »

Cute, Intelligent & Funny.
27 October 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Rugrats is one of my favourite cartoons. It has something for everyone. There are cute babies (Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Kimi & Dil), one terrible toddler (Angelica - She's the best!), one lovable & loyal hound (Spike), one kind hearted kid (Susie) and several entertaining adults. Stu & Drew's sibling rivalry is well depicted. The characters are diverse and have different backgrounds & life styles. I like spotting the film references and seeing the world as we know it turned on its head. The show contains plenty of wit and it has jokes for all age groups. (I'm 23.) It has a good theme tune and a quirky look that has developed over time. A classic. 8/10
