The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

When a newborn infant sings that they "cut my cord," another infant looks down into his diaper and says, "Consider yourself lucky" (probably referring to circumcision). Later, another infant looks down into his diaper and says, "So that's what that thing looks like." Then all the newborns pee and make a fountain and a rainbow.

There is also a scene where the babies try to see what was wrong with Dil, they take off his diaper (lucky enough we don't see his private parts as the next shot is taken through Dil's point of view) and they find out that he needs his diaper changed. When he is getting his diaper changed he pees on Chuckie.

There is a scene where Dill pulls down Tommy's diaper revealing his butt(Only the other babies see his front end)


Stu and Drew get into a brief tussle where Drew ends up pinning Stu to the ground and holding his arm behind him. When Stu exclaims that he's breaking his arm, Drew says, "That's because I can't reach your neck."

There is also a fight between Spike the dog and a wolf on a bridge until they step on a loose wooden part and fall down to the river. Spike and the wolf believe to be dead but Spike later returns to the babies.


Mild name calling (especially at the beginning with Stu and Drew arguing) but nothing major.


Monkeys take over a circus train which they cause to wreck it into the woods which is quite intense. Lucky none of the monkeys got hurt.

Younger kids may be nervous or frightened by the Rugrats being lost in the forest, especially since it's dark and we then hear the sounds of a wolf.

There is a part where lightning strikes at a tree. Phil is believed to be dead after Lil and Chuckie find one of his shoes but Phil shows up alive. It still might be sad for younger viewers.

During the climax, Spike the dog believes to be dead after fighting a wolf but He later returns to the babies. Even so, it might be sad for some younger viewers.

Overall Rating: 12/50

Final Note: Decent enough for kids as well as Rugrats fans who might tolerate some of the toilet humor unlike the rest even if it is a little darker and frightening compared to the rest of the Rugrats film trilogy.

Suggested Rating: PG for some crude humor and frightening moments.
