** In one early episode he was seen trying to say 'Reptar' to tell his parents he wanted a Reptar cereal, and although they don't understand him they do get the general sounds right, and Didi comments that she thinks he might start talking soon. Presumably he would be an early talker, Chuckie just happened to start before him.

* This is for 'Rugrats in Paris.' Chuckie drives a giant robot Reptar. [[FlatWhat What.]] I mean, come ''on!'' This is a show, that for the most part, is pretty grounded in the rules of reality (Except for the talking baby thing.). This isn't [[SpongebobSquarepants Spongebob]] where the characters can do anything the writers damn well want because it's silly and goofy and the laws of physics don't apply. When you establish up a fictional universe, you set up the rules, and ''then you stick to them.'' Having Chuckie pilot a giant robot clearly breaks this universe's rules. Think I'm over thinking it? Ok. What if for example, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WesternAnimation/Daria Daria]] suddenly flew a space shuttle without any training? What if [[AsToldByGinger Ginger]] could suddenly breath fire? It would baffle viewers, because, with few minor exceptions, these are worlds where these things do not happen. Having a baby drive a giant robot in a series where the characters act like real people, and not like cartoons, is just ludicrous.

* This is about AllGrownUp but it doesn't have a JustBugsMe page. Why are they all pre-teens? They act like high schoolers, they're treated like high schoolers, they have high school problems, etc.

** Alot of animated shows that have a movie adaptation tend to have a BigDamnMovie. It could be in BroadStrokes canonwise. RugratsInParis happened but not the exact way depicted in the film.

** Actually, the [[GrandFinale very last]] episode of the series before its cancellation was about Kimi's birthday, presumably turning three.

** When I was a kid conflict used to give me anxiety so I would hide in order to rid myself of the situation. I always thought Chuckie was the same.

* On the topic of ages, what do you think was the age difference between Tommy and Dil? Perhaps a little more than a year, maybe a year and a half?

to:

** Depending on how much the age difference between him and Tommy is, around five months at the most. Notably none of the other characters celebrate another birthday since he's introduced.

** A year and a half is probably about right, since Tommy celebrates his first birthday in the pilot episode.

*** Simple, babies grow out of newborn clothing very quickly, in the series he was somewhere between 3-6 months, thus had different clothes.

* How old is Dil throughout the series? Surely, he couldn't have been a year old by the end of the series, as I doubt that a full year passed.

Ok, here's my headscratcher. Now, remember the episode, 'What's your Line,' in season 6, when Chuckie is looking for a job? Amongst his occupations are such jobs as being an ice cream man, a flower shop owner (flower man), a librarian (library man), and in the end, a daddy. But here's the real headscratcher. During the episode, Phil and Lil seem to know what a library is, as do Tommy and Chuckie, making comments about the books, the chairs and tables to crawl under, and how they're nice and quiet. Now, fast forward to season 8, when they apparently visit a library for the first time in the episode, 'Quiet Please,' and Chuckie and Kimi get their first library cards. I can understand Kimi possibly not knowing what a library is at this point, as she didn't know the gang at the time of the season 6 episode, 'What's your Line,' but seems in this season 8 episode, 'Quiet Please,' the rest of them don't seem to have a clue as to what a library is. Tommy even makes a prediction that a library is a berry that tells lies. Like, hello, this makes no sense what so ever. It's definitely a continuity error, that leaves me baffled, and I'm surprised it wasn't already previously mentioned in this thread, which is why' I added it here.
Also, here's another thing that makes me scratch my head. Obviously, in the season 3 episode, 'Angelica's Birthday,' Angelica is turning 4-years-old. So if this is the case, why is she labeled as being age 3 for the rest of the series? It is mentioned that she's 3 in the episode, 'Pickles vs. Pickles,' which airs later that same season after 'Angelica's Birthday' has taken place, and then, in the episode, 'Early Retirement,' in season 8, Angelica even makes a comment while they're at Lou and Lulu's retirement home about how she'll have time to hang around old people when she's old, like next year when she's 4, implying that she's still 3-years-old. Also, another thing that baffles the mind is how there's 3 different times when preschool for Angelica is mentioned throughout the series. The first, is in the season 2 episode, 'Angelica the Magnificant,' when she's playing with her magic wand, and she makes a comment to herself, "I can't wait to take this thing to preschool." This makes it sound as if she's already attending preschool. Then, fast forward to season 4, to the episode, 'Educating Angelica.' Based on how she's acting at the start of the episode when Charlotte takes her to school, it's obvious that she has never been to school before, as she asks, "But mommy, why do I have to go to school?" Now, in 'Educating Angelica,' the school is called The Woodberry School, and her teacher's name is Miss Appleby. However, when we flash forward to 'Pre-school Daze,' in season 8, Angelica attends a preschool at the local community center, and her teacher's name is Miss Weamer. Also, Susie joins her at this preschool while in 'Educating Angelica,' Susie did not attend The Woodberry School. The only thing I can possibly think, since what occurred in 'Pre-school Daze,' stuck for the rest of the series, is that in the season 2 episode, Angelica was so excited about her new magic set, that once she became eligible to go to preschool, she was looking forward to sharing it with the class, and when it came to the events of 'Educating Angelica' in season 4, this preschool experience was one of those trial run things that lasts for a week, to see if she's ready for preschool, and judging by how she behaved there, she clearly wasn't ready to start preschool yet. Finally though, come season 8, they feel she's ready to start preschool, so Angelica starts attending one full-time. Still though, this all baffles my mind at times, but it's the only logical explanation I can come up with.
