A Great Opening to a Classic Show
19 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tommy's First Birthday is the first AIRED episode of Rugrats. The episode is about Didi (Tommy's mother)wanting to throw a traditional party, but all Tommy wants is to eat Spike's dog food. This episode is very well-written. The animation is, kinda obviously, is cruder than the usual crude look of the show. This shows a good exploration of what life is like for a baby.

Tommy and the Great White Thing- This is the first UNaired episode of Rugrats. It focuses on Tommy finding a giant white thing (a toilet) in the bathroom. He's determined to find out what it is and why it's there. I'm not going to bother with the animation here. Ironically, I think that this was an example of good writing. (there's a subtle 2001: A Space Odyssey reference near the beginning)
