It’s been over 30 years since Nickelodeon’s 90s classics, like Doug, Rugrats and The Ren and Stimpy Show, premiered. Feel old yet? Because I sure do! I grew up on these shows, and the fact that they’re entering middle age is insane. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was humming that catchy tune of the Doug theme song, or catching a marathon of the best Rugrats episodes. Those babies were always up to no good.


To celebrate, I compiled a list of my 20 favorite Rugrats episodes featuring Angelica, Cynthia (she’s a really cool dancer!), Chuckie, Tommy, Reptar (lol), Phil and Lil, Susie, and the rest of the crew. Rugrats was definitely my favorite show growing up, and I’ll never forget the movies either. These are the episodes we’ll never forget.

1. “Angelica’s Ballet”

Cynthia, she’s a really cool dancer!

2. “I Do”

We can’t talk about the best Rugrats episodes without referring to when Phil and Tommy got married to Lil and Chuckie.

3. “The Alien”

The belly button test was some real shit.

4. “Chuckie’s Bachelor Pad”

It got lit.

5. “Baby Maybe”

Those makeovers, though.

6. “He Saw, She Saw”

Chuckie and his first bae.

7. “Angelica’s Twin”

Remember Angelica’s nice twin, Ballina?

8. “The Odd Couple”

Chuckie was about to go off on Tommy during his rather extended sleepover.

9. “Chuckie is Rich”

Chas has 99 problems, getting rich ain’t one.

10. “Angelica’s Worst Nightmare”

This most traumatizing of all the Rugrats episodes.

11. “Spike’s Babies”

I’m Spike.

12. “Junior Prom”

Prom King and Queen

13. “Angelica’s Lemonade Stand”

Prices sure were low back then.

14. “All Growed Up”

This episode was iconic. I was living.

15. “The Last Babysitter”

The Conjuring 3: Rugrats Edition

16. “Finsterella”

Angelica stirring the pot and starting drama again.

17. “New Kid in Town”

Serena and Blair arguing about Nate and who gets to rule the Upper East Side.

18. “Cooking with Susie”

Susie’s gourmet cookies from her easy bake oven.

19. “Tommy and the Secret Club”

Same at that sign.

20. “Angelica’s in Love”

Angelica falls for her first fuckboy. Don’t worry, girl. We’ve all been there.
