Doctor Who Fans[edit]

This one feels that it should be noted that the show's creators and animators were fans of the British show Doctor Who. This is apparent through the character Tommy Pickles and his constant use of a toy screwdriver, as well as the appearance of Daleks in at least one episode. It was admitted by the shows creators at one point that they were fans, however I have yet to find a link that verifies this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.10.190.206 (talk) 20:42, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Location verification[edit]

The article states that Rugrats takes place in California. However in the first Rugrats film when Stu realizes the children are all missing, he shouts something about driving on I95 or something to the degree of "I'm searching for the children" and "I95". I don't remember quite what, but I95 is referenced. I95 is on the east coast of the USA (the main east coast highway). Should this be mentioned somewhere? I will try and verify it. --216.165.32.6 (talk) 09:46, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Update, it was I99 which is still in Pennsylvania and not California and here is proof http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qx441XVFej4&t=7m10s --216.165.32.6 (talk) 09:56, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

When am i gonna edit the "Airing history" section on Rugrats?[edit]

If you free the Rugrats page, i won't write some airing mistakes on the airing history. I won't put up PBS Kids, PBS Kids Sprout, Disney Channel, Toon Disney, SOAPnet, NBC and ABC. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.66.49.141 (talk) 16:16, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on 22 December 2011[edit]

Please add Denis M. Hannigan as Composer because he wrote the music on the first 120 episodes. His name is at the beginning of each episode with Mark Mothersbaugh after "Music by". Also, the music cue sheets are filed with ASCAP showing what Denis M. Hannigan wrote on Rugrats. Thank you. Denis M. Hannigan

Dhannigan (talk) 06:45, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Do you have web doccuments? Books? URLS? Please provide something like this so I can verify this. Puffin Let's talk! 23:06, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on January 6, 2012[edit]

Under the "Popularity, appeal, and controversy" section, it's listed that the Pickles grandparents were highlighted by the Anti-Defamation League for being potentially antisemetic portrayals. The nomenclature is wrong, it's actually Tommy Pickles' maternal grandparents, the Kropotkins, who were the subjects of this, not his paternal grandparents, who I'm unsure were even actually Jewish. See also: Judaism in Rugrats, the information is correctly relayed there. MindedDionysus (talk) 08:49, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 28 January 2012[edit]

Rugrats was first aired in 1991, not 1995. 75.66.211.133 (talk) 06:39, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Which is clearly stated in the second sentence, 'The series premiered on August 11, 1991, and aired its last episode on August 1, 2004.' If you are focusing on the fourth sentence, that is merely additional information for context. Dru of Id (talk) 07:43, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

The True story behind Rugrats[edit]

I've seen this all over the internet, but I don't know if it's true or not, (I think it's not true) but I think it's worth being mentioned somewhere..... it's an interesting story whether it's true or not... here's a little article on the topic. --SGP (talk) 22:25, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

DVD releases[edit]

The list is missing at least one DVD release: Rugrats Save The Day. 86.185.137.150 (talk) 15:07, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

2015[edit]

Is it true there are new episodes/film in 2015 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.101.38.140 (talk) 09:54, June 1, 2014 (UTC)

There doesn't appear to be significant media reports about new Rugrats content appearing in 2015. Previous attempts to submit this information to Wikipedia were reverted because the user(s) didn't have adequate sources. Assume it's a hoax until reliable sources report otherwise. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:34, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Characters section needs revision[edit]

In the last paragraph of the Characters section Tommy is referred to as Stewie. The author might have gotten confused and been thinking of a character from Family Guy. 96.57.233.226 (talk) 14:57, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Thanks for the heads-up! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:57, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
