Rugrats
« on: December 27, 2010, 08:58:42 PM »
I know this show has gotten a lot of flack with Klasky-Csupo traditionally lumpy character designs, but these days it's been really fucking lulzy. From Drew Pickles being a man raping faggot (you can thank a group your's truly was part of for that) to Stu making chocolate pudding to FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFIFTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN MIIIIIIIIIIILES, this show is a neverending meme generator.

Eh, I always liked the stuff up to the first movie, but that's about it. The later stuff has the babies being 'too stupid', as hard as that is to get across.

So glad that the series is back on Nick, but for how long?
That's the question. At least I'm watching it every morning this week at 9AM EST/6AM PST.

I agree actually. Dill was really annoying and gross, and the babies mispronouncing words that they were able to pronounce correctly in previous seasons was stupid. But even then, the adults on the show are what made me laugh the most.

The first two movies are still really good, but I don't care much for the show after Dil.

I can watch just about anything from the first 5 seasons at any given time, though. Maybe even some stuff from after that.

Does the Barney Bunch still exist?

I remember that shit from, like, five years ago on Newgrounds, goddamn.

Rugrats was a pretty good show back in the day, though for some reason, I thought the show went down hill when Kimmi/Kimi/Kimy/etc, came in. I didn't like her as a character and all she basically was just that hyper kid you see with everyone else. I didn't care for Dil, since basically he was just there and added nothing, he couldn't really interact with anyone else due to his age, and he couldn't move around.

I still maintain that Kimi was made to be a girl Tommy. I liked that Chuckie finally found himself a mommy, but they should have just ended the series with Rugrats in Paris.

The first three seasons of Rugrats were excellent. Really, rewatching them recently on Netflix, it was a very well done cartoon with some great writing.

Everything season four and beyond, however, is unwatchable. It honestly amazes me how quickly that show went from great to shit. And the shit lasted for seven seasons. And they somehow found ways to make it even worse with each new season.

And don't get me started on All Grown Up.

The theme song to All Grown Up makes me cringe every time I hear it. It sounds so forced.

All Grown Up was legitimately painful to watch. Good lord. :unimpressed:

And it's a good thing they only aged the babies in one special and never tried a series out of that. The movies were bad enough, but man, that would have sucked... :humhumhum:

Next thing you know, a few years after Ren & Stimpy ended, John K would get the rights back to the characters and make his own show with them by his own rules. That would have been kind of intriguing to watch, actually...

Seasons 2 and 3 are easily the best things Klasky-Csupo ever did. After the hiatus, it seemed like they were trying too hard.
