* Rewatching the Melville episode, the reason behind Melville's passing suddenly became very clear. Chuckle must have smothered it by accident when he put that little blanket over him.

\n* "The Last Babysitter". A subtler one happens early on: Buster goes into the basement, then runs out, saying that something was down there. We briefly get a POV from something coming after him, just before the door is closed. While it's later revealed that the so-called monster was actually Buster's friend, it's pointed out that a monster couldn't get out of the basement without being noticed. If that's so, then what was in the basement chasing Buster in the first place?

* FridgeLogic about the FridgeHorror. Plenty of episodes have a stinger that show that our hero's latest fear was real after all. Could it be that Rugrats and AaahhRealMonsters take place in the same continuity? And if so, then was Angelica able to describe the monster trio in her story because she's been scared by them before? Or since in [[RealMonsters Aaahh!!! RealMonsters]] it's shown that monsters exist specifically because people are scared of them, could it be that it was this very story that ''created'' them?

\n* In some episodes, like "Babies in Toyland", Angelica's {{Imagine Spot}}s involve a figure that she's pretending is there giving her a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech; essentially, she's telling ''herself'' that she's a selfish brat. This, coupled with her confession in ''Rugrats in Paris'' seems to suggest that on some level she ''knows'' how awful she can be and [[BeingEvilSucks absolutely hates it]]. [[TheWoobie Poor girl]].

* Rugrats was one of the most popular kids' shows in America back when it was still running, mostly in the late '90's. Angelica, a young bully, was not only a major character, but also one of the most popular characters in the series. Bullying became a ''huge'' problem amongst children in the late 90's going onward. You do the math.

* If the NostalgiaFilter hasn't fully fogged up your vision of past cable cartoons, try watching ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' now in a world where everyone is much more careful when it comes to the safety of children. [[SocialServicesDoesNotExist Shudder at the many instances of neglect. Gasp at the fact that the only thing saving the babies from being crushed, burned, exposed to the elements, abducted, starved, eaten, cut to ribbons, or permanently traumatized was dumb luck or their dim-bulb parents eventually realizing they were missing.]] It's like the Nickelodeon execs said, "You know, ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren and Stimpy]]'' was too gross and bizarre and ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'''s too boring. [[HumansAreBastards Maybe kids will get a kick out of child neglect and psychological trauma, but we'll hide it under a veneer of adventure and comedy so the]] MoralGuardians [[HumansAreBastards won't get on our asses about it. Then, we'll run it into the ground for ten years and make]] [[AllGrownUp a spin-off]]!" I mean, what would've happened if the parents were too late in realizing where the babies were whenever they went off somewhere? One must also consider the many instances in which Angelica plays on the babies' naiveté and paranoia in order to torment/scare them, for fun or for profit. And considering this happened to them while they're still quite young, what negative effects could this have possibly had on their mental health?

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

* 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 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.

* In TheMovie and RugratsInParis Aunt Miriam has brown hair while she has grey hair in the show. In "A Visit From Aunt Miriam" it's established her hair is a wig, so it's a different wig in the same hairstyle.

*** The other possibility is that she was trying to get potential customers by playing into the stereotype of the masterful, experienced Scandinavian stylist--notice that both cities given above, Helsinki (Finland) and Stockholm (Sweden), are in the broad Scandinavian region--and was deliberately putting on the facade of being from there for business purposes, which would explain why she flubs the city as well as the revelation of her accent being faked. No fraud required, for once.
