Anyone else used to like this show? The earlier episodes were the best, it got crap when Tommy got a new brother. But the episodes before that made it a great and funny cartoon probably second behind The Simpsons at the time

They are my guilty pleasure though any episode that doesn't have Angelica in it isn't really worth watching.

I didn't like the series when they were teenagers though, wasn't the same.

I loved Rugrats, that was my favourite cartoon.

Every time I hear the theme tune I get all nostalgic. I agree, after Dil was born the show went downhill. It's been far too long since I've seen an episode of it. I don't think I've ever watched the show where they were grown up, I should check that out one of these days.

I recently watched the Rugrats in Paris movie - it was so sad, and yet so freaking good.

I was a big fan as a kid. I loved Tommy's rebellious ways and how he would be the saviour/hero of the story. Angelica was a great antagonist, with her borderline psychotic behaviour, which wasn't surprising considering how neglected she was.

Huge fan of the show when i was a kid. I like the way it developed through time with the addition of Dylan and then Kimmy.

The sad thing was the rugrats franchise seems to be over. They did All grown up for a couple of years but then it was cancelled and that seems to be it. Shame. But the original series on it's own is incredible.

Angelica's mum died from a heroine overdose. Too much wonderwoman is evidently bad for you.

Whilst it may be true, it just goes to show that people will find hidden meanings in anything. I was told once that james and the giant peach was actually about a boy dying from cancer

So completely not true. Just shows how people can make anything out of nothing. "Angelica was constantly taking hits of acid" erm okay. I'm sure the writers of All Grown Up really had that in mind when they wrote it.

I am watching this when I have the odd 20 minutes and I adore it, it was my cartoon along with Hey Arnold on Nickelodeon!

Such good times and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I must watch all grown up sometime to!

Her Dad spoilt her rotten but her mum was at work all the time and when she was at home she would ignore her to scream down the phone on work stuff screaming at Jonathon.

So yeah she was neglected because Dad had to work meaning her Uncle Stu and Aunt Dee Dee had to babysit all the time.

Tommy was to know it all.
Chucky was to scaredy.
Phil and Lil just followed despite having the majority vote lol
Angelica was fantastic and always got her comeuppance.
Dil, I never really got used to. But it was good they went with the times.
Chucky's new sister I can barely remember or how she even fitted in.

They never aged like the Simpson is that right?
