* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: It may surprise a few that the series actually did get a couple of video games, one PC game based on the pilot, and one GameBoyAdvance title which was a dress-up game starring the girls. Neither was remarkable, and both fell off the radar as quickly as they came.

* BadassDecay: In ''{{WesterAnimation/Rugrats}}'', Tommy and his plastic screwdriver can save the day (albeit mostly in an ImagineSpot). Here, Tommy no longer has the same courage he had when he was younger, nor often leads his friends all the time.

That said, he's still just as brave as he used to be (diving into a raging river after a drowning Phil despite [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes being terrified of being in the water]] comes to mind); it's just the setting doesn't allow him to show it off as much.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Z is quite popular for someone who appeared only in Season 1, made a brief appearance in Season 2 and then got dropped.

** A lot of think the show itself could have been an interesting concept where the babies have an older, but still immature, view of the world and still having adventures, {{Imagine Spot}}s, and their old personalities (mostly Tommy). Something along the lines of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' or ''WesternAnimation/KidsNextDoor'', when we really get a slice of life like ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger''.

* EpilepticTrees: People were trying to figure out if Savannah Shane and Samantha Shane were one and the same girl ''(they do [[OneSteveLimit share a last name,]] after all,) despite looking and acting completely different. It doesn't help that Klasky-Csupo confirmed this rumour, right before {{Retcon}}ning it by having both characters appear in the same episode.

Added DiffLines:

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap:
** Dil was viewed as the most annoying character on ''Rugrats'', due to being TheLoad who couldn't talk and essentially had no personality. Here in the spin-off he's given the personality of a CrazyAwesome CloudCuckooLander who usually gets the best lines. He's one of the favourite characters of ''All Grown Up''.
** Kimi isn't necessarily hated on ''Rugrats'', but her arrival on the show is associated with SeasonalRot. Here she's far more popular, and one of the biggest targets for shipping.
** Z is also quite popular for someone who appeared only in Season 1, made a brief appearance in Season 2 and then got dropped.

to:

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Due to some FridgeHorror at how someone like Angelica could have turned out as an adult (RonTheDeathEater paints her ''Rugrats'' self as a complete sociopath), ''All Grown Up'' shows that she mellowed out a lot as she got older.

* ContestedSequel: Some fans disliked the show for its massive differences.
** CultClassic: However, there are fans of the show who fondly remember it on its own merits, and to this day, there is still fanart/fanfiction of the show being created.
* CrazyAwesome: Dil, of course!

* CrazyAwesome: Dil, of course!course! Believes the world is shaped like a tetrahedron, can communicate with porpoises, walks backwards on his hands because he thinks it's a superior mode of locomotion - to name a few. He's also highly intelligent and creative - coming up with unique products to sell at school, and one episode implying he partied with aliens.



* HilariousInHindsight: In the episode, "You-Gotta-Go", there is a character named The Shark who makes a brief appearance. [[YuGiOhZexal Come a few years later though...]]
** To top it all off, said character has purple hair.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Tommy pretty much bounces between shipping himself off with either Lil or Kimi.
** In universe, it starts with a girl Chuckie has a crush on, then he has a couple more single-episode girlfriends, then Rachel for a season and then an episode teasing Kimi.
** Kimi is also often shipped with Phil in the fandom.
* NightmareFuel: The video at the end of "Interview With A Campfire", as well as the scene in the tunnels.
** Especially because said video is a ShoutOut to ''TheRing''.
* PuppyLove[=/=]ToyShip: All the pairings from the original series (Tommy/Kimi,Tommy/Lil, Chuckie/Lil, Chuckie/Angelica, Phil/Susie, etc.), except it's easier to ship them here due to it being less {{Squick}}y.
** ''Less {{Squick}}y?''. [[JailBait Speak for yourself...]]
** Also, the Westermark Effect should be making any such paring squicky to the characters themselves. They ''have'' known each other since infancy, after all.

to:

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: HoYay:
** When Phil dresses up as Lil, Tommy remarks "Phil looks good as a girl". [[EvenTheGuysWantHim The rest of the guys agree]].
** Chuckie and Tommy share several significant moments together. The scene where Chuckie helps Tommy absail in "Fear of Falling" is full of it.
** Susie and Angelica also have some AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moments, often playing out like they're a SlapSlapKiss couple.
** Angelica's desire to suck up to Savannah can make it seem like there's more than friendship on her mind.

* MoralEventHorizon: In-universe in "Lucky 13". Savannah deliberately plans another party on the day of Angelica's, knowing everyone will come to hers instead, just as a KickTheDog moment. Despite how bratty Angelica can be, the gang think even she doesn't deserve that.

* TearJerker: From the second episode where Lil moves out of her and Phil's room into one of her own. Just the moment where Phil walks into the room to find her stuff gone and sadly looks at pictures of them together as kids, ending with a shot of them in the mud from ''Rugrats''.
** Tommy's fate in "All Broke Up."

** Tommy's fate in "All Broke Up."" Rachel thinks he's been cheating and calls things off with him, the potential new girlfriend gets furious and thinks she's been set up, and of course Tommy's friends are furious that he lied to them.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Stu and Drew. In ''Rugrats'', they were [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorites]], and their bickering were a great source of comedy on the show. In ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', they fell OutOfFocus as characters, only to reappear together in one episode bickering like before (making it seem like a return to the good old days)...and then the show ended.

** The filmmaking contest episode shows home movies from earlier in the characters' lives - after events that happened in ''Rugrats'' and before this show. None of them are ever really touched on, aside from Tommy's fear of water stemming from a childhood accident.
* ToyShip: Due to the characters being older, there's a lot of potential pairings hinted at:
** Kimi is revealed to have had a crush on Tommy and even carved their initials when she was younger.
** The ValentinesDayEpisode has Tommy dancing with Lil at the HighSchoolDance.
** The same episode has Harold pretending to be Angelica's date to make Sean jealous.
** Lil jokes that she finds Chuckie rebelling "kind of attractive".

* MostWritersAreAdults: just like in it's predecessor, the main characters in this show act like and are treated as being several years older than they are. The fact that a show titled "All Grown Up" doesn't have any main characters older than 13 should say it all. It makes you wonder if this was done on purpose to parody the absurdity of the original.
