Another animated series of the 90s featuring toddlers or young children as its main characters; this one was originally aired from August 11, 1991 to June 8, 2004 on Nickelodeon for 173 episodes of 22-24 minutes each, and 9 seasons.

It was centered on the life of a group of toddlers including Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, and Angelica, and later Dill. It was focused on their day-to-day lives, and their common experiences that usually became adventures in the babies' imaginations. They were able to communicate with each other through baby speak, and it was supposed that viewers could understand them, because it was 'translated'; however they often mispronounced words or used poor grammar.

One of the toddlers, Angelica Pickles, had the gift of flexible communication, thus being able to communicate and understand the language from both the toddlers and the adults, a fact that she often used as an advantage when she wanted to manipulate both groups of adults and babies. Another one with the same gift was her neighbor across the street, Susie Carmichael, though unlike Angelica she was not manipulative and did not take advantage of her capabilities.

The show achieved high levels of popularity and even earned a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. It has spawned 2 different series, All Grown Up, and Angelica and Susie’s Pre-School Daze; as well as 3 movies, The Rugrats Movies, Rugrats in Paris, and Rugrats Go Wild.

This series of the 90s is the longest lasting Nicktoon show to date having been aired for 14 consecutive years.
