*** There was an interview with Paul Germain (co-creator and head writer) where he says that [[ShrugofGod he and the writers of the original run deliberately left the issue vague]], but himself leaned towards divorce. Incidentally, the original writing team had left to work on ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' and ''HeyArnold'' by the time Chuckie's mom was explicitly referred to as dead in the show.

** 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.
