Edmund (Suzie's older brother) comes out of his house and waves as he watches them go down the street. After the scene ends, the Klasky Csupo logo and the Paramount logo are shown. The Klasky Csupo logo shown is different from the logo shown in the seasons leading up to the movie. See more »

Cute.
3 August 1999 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of the Nickelodeon television show, "The Rugrats", I was really itching to see this when I first heard they were making a movie, and I am a teenager, too. I was there opening weekend, and lemme tell ya, you don't have to be a toddler to love animated movies. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. There was very good animation, a good little story, upbeat and catchy songs as well as lyrics, and the action will keep the little ones entertained. ***** out of *****.
