**In all fairness, she's three and, through some means or another, she doesn't know any better. That aside, however, the one's she's picking on are babies, who, thankfully, won't remember.

**Maybe a raccoon or possum, if not a stray dog or cat that got into the basement through some entrance into the basement (as does occasionally happen). Alternatively, it was really nothing and he was either imagining things or was just playing along to a prank his friend was playing.

* In "Stu Gets a Job", Stu thinks Drew is pranking him (it's actually the babies because Tommy doesn’t want him going to work) so he makes two phone calls to get even: one for 50 pizzas to be delivered to Drew’s house and the other to have his car towed. He uses a fake voice which is completely unnecessary in both cases. For the first, a pizza place likely wouldn't keep track of who's ordering, unless that person's a regular. For the second, anyone can report an illegally parked car.

** The head of the company isn't just in it for the money and doesn't see her as a worthy successor. Remember, he is also the head of the company and choses his successor based on how he made it. Plus when he saw that she is willing to put kids in danger (basically KIDNAPPING THEM), I doubt he'd want her to get close to any kids again. Plus her theme park has apparently ninja guards and her assassintant is all too happy with jabbing his arm down a 4-year-old's throat. She's not a villain because she's good at her job, she's an authoritarian who enjoys scaring her employees and basically working them within an inch of their lives given how dangerous some of the animatronics are.

* In the movies we see that Angelica likes songs from the 1970s and early 80s like "Morning After" from ThePoseidonAdventure, "One Way or Another" by Blondie, and Donna Summers' "Bad Girls." We saw in the Valentines Day episode during the decade dance, Charlotte was dressed in 80s attire. We also know that Angelica is impressionable and copied a scene from TheGodfather in ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis''. Due to ComicBookTime by the time the movies and that episode aired, we can say that Charlotte grew up around that era and Angelica was copying her and introduced to this music by her.

* A Fridge Tearjerker occurs in "Let Them Eat Cake." Throughout the wedding, Chaz is shown crying his eyes out. At first glance, this just seems to show how sensitive he is. But in hindsight, it seems likely that he was remembering his own wedding and missing his late wife.

to:

* According to the Mother's Day special, Tommy was born a premature kid, and previously, in the show, Angelica mentioned that, when Tommy was born, the whole family went crazy for him and couldn't think about anything else. Tommy and Didi obviously required special attention for some time, and this probably kickstarted Angelica's animosity against him, seeing Tommy and other babies in general as kids that steal her spotlight and her family's attention without even trying.

** While on the subject of "Superhero Chuckie", the characters they had see the show made no sense in hindsight. Drew and Stu being there makes sense as they're big fans, and of course Drew brings his daughter Angelica... but why was Chuckie there? Where's his dad Chaz? Or heck, where's Tommy?!

* In "New Kid in Town," the babies meet Josh, who offers to let them play on "his" side of the park, seemingly liberating them from Angelica's tyrannical rule. However, Josh ends up being just as bad, if not worse. Throughout the episode, if you pay close attention, you can see that Josh differs from Angelica in his methods of intimidation. Angelica physically bullies the babies, while Josh tends to use more psychological manipulation (lying, making verbal threats, convincing the babies that he's being "fair," etc).\\
\\
At the end of the episode, Angelica confronts Josh by launching a water balloon at him. Instead of retaliating physically, he tries to convince Angelica to take two babies while Josh keeps the other two (again, psychological vs physical). Angelica responds by throwing ANOTHER water balloon, and Josh still refuses to resort to any type of physical response. Eventually, Angelica and Josh get into a shouting match, which culminates with Angelica pushing Josh to the ground. Instead of pushing back, he cries and runs off to tell his mother, since he clearly does not like physical conflict.

** There are also a few instances of Chuckie not being around, and Tommy gives in to Angelica's bullying, whereas when Chuckie is around, Tommy usually stands up to her. The logic behind this appears to be that, despite there being four of them, the main characters are essentially two groups of two babies-- best friends Tommy and Chuckie, and siblings Phil and Lil. Phil and Lil could possibly be considered Chaotic Neutral characters, in the fact that they're less susceptible to Angelica's negative influence than Tommy and Chuckie, but generally have good intentions otherwise.\\
\\
When only Tommy, Phil, and Lil are around, Tommy tends not to challenge Angelica's bullying, perhaps on the grounds that he feels like he doesn't owe it to Phil and Lil, since they have each other. When Chuckie ''is'' around, however, Tommy acts as his protector in a way. He keeps Angelica from bullying Chuckie because Angelica feeds on Chuckie's fear of her, and he's more or less helpless. This may be what the guardian angel meant when he said that Tommy ''needs'' Chuckie around to stand up to Angelica-- if Chuckie's not around, Tommy doesn't have any motivation to do so.
** There are several times like at the end of "Cuffed" where Chuckie puts his foot down to her. Perhaps the best example occurs in the episode "Rebel Without a Teddy Bear." After "turning bad" at Angelica's behest (since Didi took Tommy's stuffed lion because it was ''completely covered in mustard''), Tommy goes on a rampage and destroys the interior of the house to more of an extent than one might expect a toddler to be capable of. At the end of the episode, Angelica implores him to throw away Didi's favorite necklace (the one she's always seen wearing), but Chuckie steps in, stands up to Angelica, and appears to be the only reason Tommy didn't completely give in to Angelica's influence.

so.



** Even more Brilliance - although ''Didi'' is the Jewish parent, she clearly isn't that heavy into her faith. We only ever see the family engage in Jewish customs when Boris and Minka are around - which suggests Didi only does Jewish things to please her parents. Which explains why she's even cooking bacon in the first place.

*** Had Angelica not mellowed out of messing with the babies' heads by the time of ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', it's very possible she would've become a [[DistaffCounterpart female version]] of [[Lightnovel/{{Durarara}} Izaya]] [[{{Troll}} Orihara]]

* In "I Remember Melville", Chuckie, distraught over Melville dying, deludes himself into believing that the bug is still alive. Eventually, he even uses Melville's clearly dead body to do "circus tricks" and such.\\

* In "Angelica Breaks a Leg", one scene shows Angelica watching television while resting her "broken" leg. We never actually see what she's watching, but we do hear it: it's the sound of gunshots, and for reason, it makes Angelica burst out in laughter...
