** Tropers/{{fairygirl567}}: It came straight out nowhere too. At first, I thought it'd be like Didi taking the kids home and wondering how they keep getting out with the other parents agreeing with her and then maybe concluding that they're just adventurous children. But then they have Didi, blame Stu for being the neglectful parent when she's just as neglectful! At least Stu has an excuse, he's an inventor and has to spend time making new toys to help keep their house! I'm not sure what Didi does, but most of the time she's busy taking parenting advice from a crackpot psychiatrist. Even if they had done this same sketch with Angelica's parents or even Lil and Phil's parents, it still would've been a jarring and disturbing sketch because none of the parents have shown any abusive towards their spouse, depicting Didi of all people, as this domestically abusive shrew made me realize that they did this stupid joke because they thought that since the premise of children going on wild adventures warranted an abusive parents sketch. Good job, writers. There's a way to do this too, but not this poorly written.

** Tropers/{{fairygirl567}}: The jab they took at Daria was really uncalled for especially when they started out by calling her gross and then depicted her as an overweight man because she decided to get a sex change, then having Micheal Moore puke after hearing her explain why she decided to do it. Daria wasn't the most attractive character, but she didn't need to be because she was known for her wit, sarcastic tone and dark outlook, but she continued to go about her life. They've made jabs at other 90s and 80s characters, which they've done well at, but this just felt way too mean-spiriuted and unfunny.

** Tropers/KrazyTVWatcher: After looking at that sketch, I agree with you. If anything, the writers of this sketch tried way too hard to be funny, yet I can already feel that this sketch evoked a lot of negative reactions out of Christians in the world today. This is one of the Christianity-related sketches I hate on ''Robot Chicken''.

*** Tropers/{{Ironballs16}} - this is also a ShoutOut to ''Literature/TheGreenMile'', [[https://youtu.be/7s9RYLabxCg where an inmate meets a similar end]] when Percy, the SadisticGuard, "[[BlatantLies forgets]]" to dampen the sponge, and they ''have'' to go through with the execution because stopping before the inmate is dead would have violated laws against cruel & unusual punishment.

** Tropers/{{Pgj1997}}: What really gets to me is the title of the skit, and its official description. The title is "A Rugrats Joke" and the description reads "Here you go, 90s kids". This bias against the 1990s needs to stop. Either hire writers that know more about the source material than you do, or just ignore it altogether. Blindly attacking franchises isn't funny in the slightest, and PanderingToTheAudience like this will most likely kill most if not all off your viewership. I know Robot Chicken is pretty much made for raping childhoods, but at least be tasteful about it.

** Toonguy: I second the one above me. Not only does this seem rather mean spirited, not only is it unfunny, it doesn't even make sense in the context of the show. I mean, perhaps it would have been funny if they had stopped it after the one time that the Rugrats actually talk, I'd actually find it funny. It's not even a case of pointing out certain problems with the original source material (e.g Star Wars Robot Chicken), it's just a domestic abuse joke and it's just.....there. Added to that, it doesn't work with the two characters. Maybe it would have been somewhat more understandable with some of the other parents, but Didi and Stu were always pretty much one of the happier couples. So yeah, not only does it seem really offensive just for the sake of it, but it doesn't even make sense.[[SarcasmMode Bravo writers. Just, just really bravo.]]
