Rugrats are absolutely brilliant!
I grew up on Rugrats, and I loved practically everything that they did. The whole series is based on the premise of "If babies could talk, what would they say?", and watching it later on has allowed me to notice many examples of a baby's view on the world, many of them flippin' brilliant! I loved the offbeat animation and often Squicky Close Up shots, some of which have warped my brain in such awesome ways. I always liked the episodes involving transformation and imagination, oftentimes moreso than the plot, which is why I never really noticed the slow decline of the series until later on. While I hate the two Direct To Video movies for being overly Anvilicious (mostly about how even the villain should be treated with kindness), I never lost faith in Rugrats, who even after so many decades have given me the greatest feelings in the world. (That being said, Keep Circulating The Tapes! Until they release the whole series on DVD, I only have my old videos and the brave people who have the guts to post episodes on You Tube!)
I wish YouTube were unlimited in how many videos they can have up. Google largely destroyed YouTube by taking it over and enforcing copyright-related shit. I really appreciate Rugrats, particularly the first three seasons and the Hanukkah and Mother's Day specials.

Now this was a show I greatly loved as a kid, one of my early childhood favourites. However, I can't really say I still like the Rugrats. It feels rather embarrassing to say I still "like" it because it was aimed at a much younger audience than Tom and Jerry, SpongeBob Square Pants and Dexter's Laboratory, three of my other favourites, so saying I still like it feels uncomfortable (especially since it's a show about babies). However, I still highly respect it. I wouldn't watch it today as an adult, but I'm very glad I watched when I was a little kid.
