Rugrats fans horrified by ‘scary’ first trailer for iconic cartoon’s divisive reboot


RUGRATS fans have finally been given a first look at the show’s reboot - and the results have been divisive to say the least. 

The much-loved 90s cartoon has had a modern day makeover, bringing Tommy Pickles and his gang of mischievous pals into a 3D world. 

But many original fans have been left terrified by the ‘creepy’ new editions of their favourite characters, believing that the series - originally sketch-like animation - should have remained as it was. 

One fan wrote: “While I do appreciate the reprise roles of the [original voice actors] I cannot STAND that abomination of animation. It looks way too creepy and just does not fit right. 

“I was raised on OG Rugrats and loved it so much. The animation back then could easily be identified as Nickelodeon.”

“I'm happy for anyone that is excited for this, but personally I am not a fan of the CG animation,” said another. 

“You had me until ‘updated animation style’ you couldn’t just do a higher quality cartoon? You had to make it look like fricken jimmy neutron?!” questioned another. 

The original Rugrats series was one of the most defining kids’ TV shows of the 1990s, based around Tommy, his best friends Chuckie, Phil and Lil, Angelica and Susie, as they navigated life as a toddler away from their oblivious parents. 

Over time, the show expanded to include numerous films, and a spin-off series, All Grown Up, which showed the gang away from their nappies and bottles and becoming teenagers. 

All the original voice actors - including The Simpsons’ Nancy Cartwright, ED Daily, Cheryl Chase, Cree Summer and Kath Soucie, have agreed to return and lent their voices once more. 

The show ended in 2004 after 13 years on air. 

Rugrats is released on May 27th on Paramount+ in the US.
