* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Didi's parents Boris and Minka didn't bode well with some viewers, who felt that they resembled the anti-Semitic caricatures published in Nazi Germany and found their stereotypical Jewish behavior offensive. Ashkenazi Jews, on the other hands, absolutely loved them, feeling it was an accurate portrayal of their people (it helps that KlaskyCsupo was founded and run by Jews). Tellingly, Nickelodeon's Jewish then-president Albie Hecht was baffled by this controversy, while his goyem successor Herb Scannell completely agreed with it and asked that the characters be downplayed.

** Angelica herself gets treated like a CompleteMonster and called 'sociopathic' by a lot of fans. This is ignoring the fact that she's three years old and most of her problems are down to indulgent parenting by Drew. She is nasty to the babies, but numerous episodes show that she does have HiddenDepths and cares for them in her own special way. Not to mention ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' showing that she did mellow out as she grew older.

*** The GBC version[[note]] also from 2000[[/note]], made by a different developer, was the same thing, just on a miniscule screen & with awful music. You can imagine how ''that'' went down.

** ''Rugrats: Time Travellers'' was ''another'' clunky platformer for the GBC in 1999. The story involves the babies screwing around with a time machine in a toy store[[note]]similar to the episode ''Toy Store'', except nowhere near as good, of course[[/note]] & being whisked away to stereotypical time periods (Egyptian times, prehistoric times, etc). There were so few interesting historical elements used, one wonders why the developers even bothered with a TimeTravel plot. Controls were broken, and the ending was extremely unsatisfying. The only saving grace of this game was its colourful graphics.

** Angelica is this to many people. She's a highly unique example of this trope, as when the show was still airing on T.V, [[EnsembleDarkhorse Angelica was actually considered one of the]] ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse best]]'' [[EnsembleDarkhorse characters in the series by most fans & critics]]. Not only was she was one of the reasons the show was so popular, she was the show's only character to make it into TV Guide's ''50 Greatest Cartoon Characters'' countdown. However, by the late 2000s, public opinion turned against her for being too mean to the babies and a tad bit of a sociopath. Another interesting fact is that until the first movie came out, Arlene Klasky didn't like her either, as she found Angelica to be too cruel and [[KarmaHoudini not punished for her actions enough]]. Angelica was also not in her and Gabor Csupo's original plans for the series, but was Paul Germain's idea, as he'd based the character off of a girl who'd bullied him in his childhood. ''Magazine/TheNewYorker'' even wrote an article about this, focusing on how Angelica tore apart the K-C staff, until ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'' came out, where Klasky recanted her opinions on the character and said she "loved" Angelica.

*** The GBC version from 2000 is a scaled-down version, lacking Mark Mothersbaugh's soundtrack, O.K.-for-2001 3D graphics, and basically anything that made the console version tolerable. Oddly enough, it had a completely different story[[note]]involving Angelica rescuing Cynthia from ''Tommy & Chuckie'', [[OutOfCharacterMoment of all people]][[/note]], and was a tad more polished in a few ways, such as including an actual BossBattle. [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2000/05/27/rugrats-totally-angelica IGN has a rather entertaining review here]].** SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: ''Rugrats Adventure Game'' by Creator/{{Broderbund}}. It's actually a well-made [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin point-and-click adventure game]] (as should be expected from that late developer), although the transitions between scenes and movements are somewhat long. Also, good luck trying to run it on a modern computer; not even Windows XP can run this game, so a virtual machine running Windows 95 or 98/ME is a must.

** ''Rugrats: Totally Angelica'' on the [=PS1=] in 2001 was yet ''another'' MiniGameGame. It had crappy mini games, no replayability, and was too easy on the ''hardest difficulty level''.
