** A decade after the show ended, the Pickles family [[WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty wouldn't be the only dysfunctional family who's lives have almost been ruined by a spiky-haired fatherly figure's clumsiness and passion for invention]].

** Speaking of 9/11, there was another episode where a dream sequence depicted the babies as Kaiju playing in a New York-like city. Phil and Lil use two buildings that look a lot like the original Twin Towers as building blocks to help Tommy reach for the Moon.

** The 4-episode ''Pre-School Daze'' series, most notably thanks to its simplified art style.


Added DiffLines:

** The very overly-cutesy art style of the failed ''Pre-School Daze'' series. It just doesn't look ''right.''

** "Ruthless Tommy" has a pair of criminals kidnapping Tommy, mistaking him for [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump Ronald Thump]]'s son. Uncomfortable now that the parody's namesake is President of the United States which would make kidnapping one of his immediate family members a serious offense.

* SpiritualLicensee: It can be the closest thing to an animated spin-off of ''Film/LookWhosTalking'' as both the series and the film are told from the viewpoint of an infant. Interestingly, the voice of the baby character Mikey of the said film, Creator/BruceWillis, would later voice the character of Spike in the cartoon's ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'' crossover film ''WesternAnimation/RugratsGoWild''

** Angelica is the biggest case of this. 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 (But to be fair, this was at the point of where Rugrats had long faded into obscurity to the point of where admitting that you enjoyed the show, it was considered laughable. When the show started having a resurgence in popularity in 2011, so did Angelica's character to the point of where people not only started having a more favorable opinion of her like they did in the '90s and early 2000s, but she has a large part of the show's fanbase that loves her to where they consider her the real star of the show and has been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap) and 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, since by that point her [[CharacterDevelopment character had been softened up considerably.]]

** There are fans who like Angelica Pickles for [[LoveToHate being an amazingly cunning brat]] and contributing to some of the show's humor as well as fans who dislike her for her ItsAllAboutMe attitude and always picking on the babies.



** Angelica herself gets treated like a monster 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.
