90s kids have a lot to celebrate these days!  Not only are everyone's favorite babies back with a DVD of the complete Rugrats series from the 90s, but Paramount+ is releasing all new Rugrats content to enjoy with the next generation of fans.  That's right - the Pickles family is back in action with the same characters you know and love.  Viewers will be delighted to know that this isn't a sequel, just a continuation of the adventures of the diaper-clad friends - and while we all may have aged quite a bit, they are still the adorable babies we remember!

Paramount+ Rugrats Review

I had the chance to screen some of the new Rugrats content ahead of it's release and it was everything I wanted.  I felt like I was walking down memory lane with favorites Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Reptar, and more taking center stage once again.  I'm happy to share that Nickelodeon and Paramount didn't mess with the formula of success that worked with Rugrats before - the episodes feature the same babies, at the same ages - just in higher quality animation and slightly longer episodes.

My kids had no connection to the Rugrats cartoons that I grew up loving as a child, but they were laughing right along.  In fact, my six year old was begging for more at the end of each episode!  The mixture of imaginative storytelling feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.  Tommy is still the leader of the pack who has an answer and a plan for everything, Angelica is still trying to keep those babies from ruining everything, and Chuckie is still terrified of. . .well. . .EVERYTHING.  Fans of the original will enjoy sharing these new adventures with their own children and I can't wait for the opportunity to see more as they become available!

Rugrats releases to Paramount+ on May 27th! 


About Rugrats (From Nickelodeon and Paramount+)



A reimagining of the classic ‘90s hit, the brand-new RUGRATS series features rich and colorful CG-animation and follows the babies—Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, and Phil and Lil—as they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view.

Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio, the all-new RUGRATS is based on the series created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo and Paul Germain.

The original “Rugrats” series launched in August of 1991 and instantly became a groundbreaking phenomenon, spawning consumer products and three hit theatrical releases, and cementing its place in pop culture history through its iconic characters, storytelling and unique visual style. “Rugrats” was in production for nine seasons over the course of 13 years. The series earned four Daytime Emmy Awards, six Kids' Choice Awards and its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
