* During ''Mother's Day'' Tommy reveals the first time he saw his mom... was when he was in an incubator. While it is heartwarming at the ending seeing poor Tommy trapped in a glass tube, connected to machines, is very sad. Even worse when he talks about being alone and scared. This might very well be his first memory: alone, frightened, hurt, and not knowing what is going on. He didn't even realize Didi was his mom... he was just glad he wasn't alone.
** For Didi too. She can't even hold her baby... all she can do is stare at him and hold his hand.

* Meta example: Christine Cavanaugh, Chuckie's original voice actor, died in 2014 of undisclosed causes. Shortly after news of her death broke, ''Series/The90sAreAllThat'' on [=TeenNick=] aired a marathon of Chuckie episodes in her memory.

* Chuckie's reaction to the dance at the beginning of ''Rugrats in Paris''. It doesn't help how nostalgia-inducing and saddening the song is.

* ''The Rugrats Movie'' has one. Long story short, Tommy and the gang think that Stu, trapped in his flying invention, is a [[BuffySpeak "lizard," by which they mean "wizard."]] The babies have been lost and intended to ask the "wizard" to get them home. But by then, Spike has [[DisneyDeath ostensibly been killed protecting the babies from a wolf.]] Tommy looks up and says, "We wish we had our doggy back." [[spoiler: Fortunately, Spike does survive and return.]]

* The ''Babies in Toyland'' special has several moments:
**Tommy and the gang find themselves in Christmas Land's replica of Bethlehem, where they encounter a Baby Jesus figurine. They feel sorry for him because he has no presents, so they each give him the gifts they found on their journey to find Santa's workshop (Kimi's bell, Lil's ribbon, Chuckie's Christmas walnut, and Phil's ballet shoe). When they're done, the figure smiles (its face was neutral before).
**Lil's reaction to seeing Baby Jesus sleeping in "itchy hay" and ostensibly cold.
**Angelica's eventual attachment to Prancie, the little stuffed reindeer a fake Santa gave her.
**After having an ImagineSpot in which she realizes she's been mean, Angelica gives each baby a special gift, but forgets Dil. She immediately gives up Prancie for him. Tommy then offers her ''his'' present, since Angelica is now the only one without one.
**YMMV, but Angelica says a couple of times she's tried to be good all year. Of course, considering her attitude toward the babies, this isn't reliable. But she's clearly eager to see Santa and expects to get presents (whereas in ''The Santa Experience'', she was afraid of getting coal). The fake Santa she encounters quits, and blames her for it, leaving Angelica genuinely upset and confused. It really makes you feel Santa is a JerkAss, taking out hatred for his job on a three-year-old girl.

* "I Remember Melville" is easily one of the most heartbreaking episodes in the series, featuring concepts of death being explained as Chuckie goes through the loss of his pet bug, Melville. On paper it sounds like a silly idea, but the execution of the episode is nothing less than impressive.

It's actually not that sad until Chuckie starts crying over how pudding reminds him of Melville. Poor freaking Chuckie.
