RUGRATS, Nickelodeon’s classic hit animated series about life from a baby’s point of view. The Rugrats are Tommy, our one-year-old hero, and his friends, Chuckie, Phil & Lil and his cousin Angelica. Whenever adults are around, the Rugrats act like real babies, but when they’re alone they drop the façade and talk to each other with the vocabulary of five-year olds. As Tommy and his pals wobble through life, supported by legs not yet used to walking, they show us the world as a baby views and understands it. The Rugrats’ world is one that exists below our knees; here mundane things and events turn into grand, comic adventures.
Welcome to the world of the RUGRATS, Nickelodeon's classic hit animated series about life from a baby's point of view. The RUGRATS are TOMMY, our one-year-old hero, and his friends, CHUCKIE, PHIL & LIL and his cousin ANGELICA. Whenever adults are around, the RUGRATS act like real babies, but when they're alone they drop their witless pose and talk to each other with the vocabulary of five-year-olds. As TOMMY and his pals wobble through life, supported by legs not yet used to walking, they show us the world as a baby views and understands it. The RUGRATS' world is one that exists below our knees; here mundane things and events turn into grand, comic adventures.
In Nickelodeon's live theatrical production, the RUGRATS, in their usual offbeat fashion, turn a typical rainy afternoon into an adventure of the imagination. When CHUCKIE laments that the world is becoming too scary, TOMMY decides to do something about it and creates the People-ator, a tool which makes inanimate objects come alive. TOMMY'S plan quickly backfires when ANGELICA takes his invention. As the RUGRATS travel over oceans and battle REPTAR to keep ANGELICA from using the People-ator for her own purposes, CHUCKIE realizes that the world no longer seems as scary – not because TOMMY changed the world, but because CHUCKIE has found that he can survive scary things through his own courage and the help of his 'bestest' friends.
