Trivia

After the success of The Rugrats Movie (1998), Nick and Klasky Csupo had plans to make a movie out of this TV series. However, production of the movie was shut down due to the story being "too dark" for children. Info on what the movie was going to be about hasn't been revealed. See more »

Goofs

In one episode, a clone of Ickis graffitis a wall to read "The Gromble Eatz Fresh Produce" with the last "e" written backwards. However, when Ickis later has to clean the graffiti, the wall says "The Gromble Eatz Fresh Fruit." See more »

Quotes

Ickis: [refering to the blob] And when he looks at us that way, you know he's thinking... breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Krumm: I wanna be dinner.

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, the Gromble says something different from every episode, one of his lines was "you make me sick". After the credits and the Nickelodeon logo is shown, a character from that episode says a line. See more »

User Reviews

A good show.
4 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a good show. It was really clever, and off-beat, which is good. I think I've figured out why they dump good shows like this, and leave brain-dead shows on the air. Merchandising. Have you noticed that stuff like Rugrats and Rocket Power are cash-cows. That's why they keep these and dump shows like this. Because they can't be stretched into gigantic merchandising giants like Rugrats and Rocket Power. They are not about merchandising. They put out a few things to keep fans happy, and then keep making quality shows. I have nothing against Rugrats but really they lack that thin line between kiddie entertainment and adult satire. Rocket Power never had it. I'm not dissing Rugrats or anything, but still, it lacks that adultiness nowadays. Anyway, Rugrats and Rocket Power can be put on anything. Now really, if you think I'm bluffing, take a look at all this stuff out there. I mean the world could move on without "extreme" Rocket Power stampers. Be "extreme". Wear Rocket Power underwear. Have Reggie and Otto stand in the same poses as every other thing, and I mean EVERY, on your butt. Then buy it again, because it's a different color. Then buy Rocket Power keychains, even though you have no keys. This is just out of control nowadays. Anyway, Aaah! Real Monsters was a good show about quality, not about just writing the show to make kids go out and buy stuff. Just like Invader Zim, Rocko's Modern Life, and Ren and Stimpy. They have nothing in merchandising, but they are great, funny shows with adult humor, satire, and general humor. I rest my case. Spongebob's a good show too, but it's starting to slip, and more stuff is coming out. Watch The Fairly Oddparents get dumped and forgotten completely because of quality over franchise. That show's original. So it will probably slip into the same fate as this show.
