YMMV: The Rugrats Movie

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: "This World is Something New to Me", a musical number in which several babies in the nursery suddenly start to sing about having just been born, and then proceed to pee into the air.
    • The Lipshitz muscial number that's only in the TV Broadcasts could count as well.
    • When Dil is about to be born, we suddenly see a montage of the planets, and the history of the earth from dinosaurs to Stonehenge.
  • Critical Dissonance: The movie received mixed reviews from critics, but opened at #1 at the box office, and became the first animated movie not made by Disney to gross over $100 million in the United States. Of course it also helped that the series was still very popular at that point.
  • Design Student's Orgasm: Well it is a Klasky-Csupo production. Of particular note is the scene of the traditionally animated Stu flying his computer generated whirligig invention through a photographed sky!
  • Genius Bonus: Boris (Didi's father) giving the babies chocolate coins is part of a Jewish tradition, although this usually occurs on Hanukkah (hence the name "Hanukkah Gelt").
  • Ear Worm: The song "On Your Marks, Get Set, Ready Go" by Busta Rhymes. "I AM REPTAR, HEAR ME ROAR! I AM REPTAR, THEKINGOFDINOSAURS!!"
  • Moral Event Horizon: Tommy comes dangerously close to crossing this line when he gets so fed up with his brother, after having left his friends behind for Dil's sake, that he nearly pours banana baby food on him to let him be devoured by the monkeys
    • Could possibly also count as Despair Event Horizon because Tommy did have more than enough reason to be upset by that point.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The whole idea of toddlers being lost in the forest.
    • Tommy snaps and almost pours mashed bananas on Dil, knowing the monkeys will be attracted to it. It's thundering and raining the whole time, and Tommy just starts acting more and more crazy as he starts ranting about how much Dil has ruined his life. Horrifying.
    • The wolf stalking the Rugrats and becoming very close to killing them had it not been for Spike
  • The Scrappy: If Dil wasn't this to the fans here, he was certainly it to Chuckie and the twins (at first).
  • Squick: The "Pee Fountain" scene in the The World Is New To Me number. Ugh.
    • The sound effect when Dill poops his diaper.
