Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: In "Spike Runs Away", the scene where Tommy sobs over Spike being missing loses some of its [[TearJerker tearjerkiness]] when Tommy is drawn with a VolumetricMouth, but it's still pretty sad to see Tommy so depressed.

** The last episode David Doyle voiced Grandpa in before he died was "Grandpa's Bad Bug", in which Grandpa pretends that he's severely ill.



* VindicatedByHistory: The Dil and Kimi episodes when they were on, was the most hated cartoon on the internet alongside Klasky-Csupo's other cartoons at the time, [[{{Flanderization}} due to flanderizing the baby talk]], and many people thought that it was over-saturating the network. But in later years, those seasons are as held in high regard as the seasons before those. It's gotten to the point of where people have hardly noticed the changes (minus additional characters) that happened throughout the show's run and think that the show has been consistent in quality.

* VillainDecay: Angelica was much less creepy and villainous when the show was {{Uncancelled}} following the initial 65-episode order. Of course, given the episode that initial order left off on, which featured Angelica actually breaking down in tears and admitting that the babies were her best friends, this was probably unavoidable.

** In "What The Big People Do", Tommy says you can have babies and get married. It kinda sounds like he's talking about having kids out of wedlock.



** Baby Dil. As soon as he was added, potty humor was [[UpToEleven cranked up.]][[note]]Ironically, according to series' tenth anniversary special, "Still Babies After All These Years", the writers hated the idea of his character at first due to [[FlatCharacter how little he could do]] in comparison to the older babies, who could move around and talk.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** Drew Pickles is viewed by some people to be a rapist, most notably in ''WebVideo/BarneyBunch''.

* BrokenBase: As gathered from SeasonalRot below, fan opinion is sharply divided as to when the series started going downhill. Depending on who you ask, the show either went downhill once the series was revived in 1997, after the first movie, or after the second movie. A small group of fans even prefer the later episodes over the original 65 episodes, while others think the show stayed consistent throughout its whole run.

** 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.

** '''Tommy''': "We just gotta get the balls in the hole, and we'll get a whole mountain of ice cream!"
** Not helped by the questionable look of Ice Cream Mountain itself.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The voice of the monster under Chuckie's bed in the episode "Under Chuckie's Bed".
-->'''Monster''': "Hi, Chuckie!"
** The horrible creaking noise of Angelica's chair in the episode "What The Big People Do".
** The first Halloween episode had some pretty creepy background music.
** The ending credits music from the episode "Mega Diaper Babies".
** The voices of Not!Tommy and Not!Stu creep Chuckie out, and while they're talking, the background music that plays [[ScareChord lets you know something's wrong]].
-->'''Not!Tommy:''': I'm not Tommy! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

* 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.
