Crazy Credits

After the credits there is an additional scene of the goat bucking the Reptar wagon down the street with Grandpa Lou inside napping. 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 »

User Reviews

 
A fun-tastic enhancement of the TV cartoon series.
19 April 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This animated film feature of the RUGRATS is a thrill of an adventurous joyride for its fans, and has a cutest sense of humor more unique than some in this type (like the "poopie" jokes). The familiar artwork is breathtaking and fares far better than the recent DOUG in movie form. Angelica gets to steal the show like she always does, and sings a sample of Blondie's "One Way Or Another". Simply put, a great way for kids to escape the horrors of network television. As all that can be best explained, you know exactly what to predict here. The songs are nice, but they're nothing to brag about except for when the end credits scroll by.
