Was My #2 Favorite Show On Nickelodeon
17 July 2001 | by dee.reidSee all my reviews

Rugrats is about a group of babies named Tommy Pickles who is the fearless leader of the group, Chucky Finster, the scaredy cat of the bunch, and a group of bickering twins named Phil and Lil. No show is complete without a nemesis, in this case it's Tommy's older cousin, Angelica who is also a spoiled brat.

I used to enjoy watching this show all the time. It's very entertaining and the stories for the cartoons were creative.

I would like to emphasize on "was my #2 show on Nickelodeon". I say that because the show, for a time was very good and entertaining and then Nick started putting out the newer episodes. Then there was the addition of Tommy's new baby brother, Dil who is now the most annoying character on the show. A lot of the humor is gone now, too. I mean most of the humor now is just stupid toilet humor or worn-out humor from the old shows. The show has since then, lost a lot of it's impact. Now the new shows are just retarded. The stories and plots now have the babies making a lot stupid decisions and getting into some pretty idiotic situations.

I give Rugrats a 10/10 for the old episodes and 1/10 for the new episodes.
