Nickelodeon is in the midst of reviving many of their classic NickToon properties, and Rugrats is considered by many to be the gold standard. One of the greatest animated series ever made. Now, the show is returning with a new 26-episode series, and live-action/animated CG hybrid movie.
“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,” Interim Nickelodeon President Sarah Levy said in a statement. “What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can’t wait for today’s kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals.”
