Rugrats is brining back the ’90s nostalgia with relaunch of TV series and new film


90s kid favorite Rugrats is coming back to the screens in the form of an animated series and live-action film and fans are not too thrilled.

A very famous gang of babies are reuniting that could excite all you ’90s nostalgia buffs. Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures announced that the animated 90s kids series Rugrats is making a comeback.

Rugrats is hands-down one of the most celebrated cartoons in TV history, and we are thrilled for a whole new audience to meet these iconic characters in brand-new adventures,” Sarah Levy, COO of Viacom Media Networks and interim president of Nickelodeon, said in a statement.

The entertainment franchise, which debuted in 1991 and ran till 2008, was all about a world from a baby’s point of view. Main characters and friends Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, and Lil were living an adventurous life of this world they didn’t understand. They’d often be tormented by Tommy’s mean cousin Angelica or seen trying to figure out their parents who were quite clueless themselves. In the later episodes, the babies did grow up.

The question remains though, are they going to go back to being babies?

Fans of the show will remember that toward the end of the franchise run, the babies grew 10 years older for the show All Grown Up!. The gang were at their pre-teen and teen years then, navigating school and their developing their personalities. With this relaunch, they will in fact be babies again and some fans did not seem to be so thrilled.

They don’t even want a movie.

Unfortunately for the displeased fans, this is really happening. And some ’90s babies are all for it.

The revival has already received a 26-episode order from Nickelodeon, and a live-action film featuring the characters in CGI form has been given the green light. The show’s original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain are signed on as executive producers.
