** Some more grown up viewers have assumed this to be a version of dual TheBeard, the jury's still out.

** Some more grown up viewers have assumed this to be a version of dual TheBeard, the jury's still out. The only problem with this theory is that, in "Angelica In Love" Betty explicitly states that [[ChildhoodFriendRomance she's been in love with Howard since the third grade]], meaning it might not be as dual as assumed.

* [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Homage Homage]]: "Gold Rush" is one long homage to the Bogart classic, TheTreasureOfTheSierraMadre. Some notable standouts:
** [[WholePlotReference The entire plot of a treasure hunt]] where all participants turn on each other
** Chuckie's laughing fit and speech is a baby-fied version of Walter Huston at the end of the film
** The final shot, where said treasure is lost to the wind and sand

* CallBack: The console for Mega Corp's Christmas Land attraction is kept together using paper clips and rubber bands, just like [[Film/RugratsInParisTheMovie the Reptar mecha]] was.

Added DiffLines:

** The opening of "Reptar 2010" also exhibits one with its prehistoric setting being done in a more realistic, colored pencil-esque style. Made more noticeable when the T-Rex fades into Reptar, who is drawn in the show's usual style.
** To a lesser extent, the [[ArtEvolution switch]] from Wang to Anivision can also be considered such.

* NeverSayDie: Chuckie's biological mother (never seen outside of flashbacks), Melinda, is heavily implied to have passed away before the timeline of the show began. It's never outright stated, however.

* NeverSayDie: Chuckie's biological mother (never seen outside of flashbacks), Melinda, is heavily implied to have passed away before the timeline of deceased, and the show began. It's does everything short of saying the actual word to indicate that -- including showing her grave. Other episodes, such as "I Remember Melville", avert this. "Stu Gets a Job" even plays it for laughs, with Stu saying that Mozart's wife never outright stated, however.asked him when he was going to finish his requiem and Didi pointing out that Mozart died without finishing his requiem.

* MoralGuardians: Boris and Minka would later be written out of the show because the publishers thought he was too much like a Jewish stereotype. I guess no one told them that ''Rugrats'' was created by Jews.
** Or that Eastern European Jewish grandparents really are like that, as anyone with them will tell you.
** Actually, they apparently weren't offended as much by their characterization as they were by Grandpa Boris' design, which was seen as being too similar to [[http://archive.adl.org/presrele/mise_00/3256_00.asp anti-Semitic caricatures from WWII-era Nazi propaganda]].

* BabyLanguage: The babies speak to each other in a language that the adults don't understand. The reason we hear it as standard English is because the show "translates" it for us, but what we hear isn't what they're actually saying (it would likely sound like gibberish to us). Several characters in the series can speak in this baby language and in adult English, the most prominent of whom are Susie and Angelica.
