2 Dill Pickles? Come on. No parents would play this cruel joke on their kid. Having the last name Pickles is bad enough as it is. Rugrats jumped the shark at the birth of Dill. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The music went from normal to violent sounding. And the adding of Chuckie's homosexuality coming into place sure wasn't good either. The soundtrack became this hardcore rock music recorded by AFI or some crappy band. Did the show jump the shark? Of course, from Chuckie's homosexuality, to Tommy's voice sounding as if he was talking inwards, Didi sounding like a lesbian, to the addition of a mentally retarded child (Dil Pickles), and the synthesized music and harcore rock music by AFI. Thanks a lot Rugrats. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 When I first saw this show when I was, like, 7, it was amazing. It was a really great show, and even now, though corny, it is. The older episodes that is. Then the movie. Oh, the movie. It wasn't so bad, except the introduction of the anchor of the entire Rugrats rowboat: Dil. First off, it's a lame pun (Dil Pickles, get it? Haw haw!). Second off, the babies have changed because of it. Before, Tommy could go off on adventures and do stuff like a normal baby. But now, he has "responsibileries" and has to care for his brother which makes the episodes really sucky and sappy. Then came Paris, which introduces Kimmy. Weee! Thank you, feminist activists, for putting a new female character into the show, who is basically Tommy in drag! Now Chuckie has responsibilty too and has to try and not be scared, which is supposed to be his friggin' trait. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Rugrats used to be one of my favorite shows! I mean--it had everything a kids show should have---and, it was even ALLLL about kids! But then when the plot started changing, with new characters, and the characters NEVER grew up at all....well....it got so boring that sharks wouldn't want it! So long Rugrats. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I think Rugrats has jumped the shark multiple times(if that's possible). It was a pretty good show to start, but once they added the new season which had a new art style, different voices, and crappier plots, the show jumped for the first time. The babiers kept on getting stupider and stupider, heck, they can talk and yet they can't tell the difference between a furnace and a monster's mouth? and they do speak in english because they NEVER speak in front of the adults, and when the adults come by, they suddenly shut up. And the most insulting thing is, the kids were probably a thousand times smarter than the adults. I mean, the adults basicly take a nap or run an arrand while there's nobody to watch the kids, and they break out of their kribs and nearly get killed. perhaps the only good episode of this show they could possibly make is when the parents get arrested for child abuse and the kids wind up in half assed foster homes. The show jumped the shark again when Dil was added, he couldn't talk, he would make more potty talk reference than all of the odler ones combined, and can be summed up as a useless disgusting blob. The show jumped AGAIN when they added Kimi and her freeloading "family." -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 This show definitely Jumped the shark as soon as Dill was born. Before that an accent was placed on the fact that tommy had different experiences from those of Phil and Lil. This was due to the fact that he was an only child, and that made the show all the more interesting. Now,the fact that not only Tommy, but Chuckie have siblings makes all the characters too cliche. There's not many problems that can happen between the gang because they all understand each other. It was much, much better when each character could still have different experiences. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This show jumped the shark for a number of reasons around the time the first movie came out. The earlier episodes were unique and had some jokes that young kids didn't get, so it was enjoyable for adults also. After the movie, that stopped. The new voice of Grandpa just doesn;t sound right. Dill Pickles did nothing but take away time from the other babies. The babies get more and more stupid every season. When the second movie was released, it was all over for the Rugrats. The addition of Kimmi and Grandpa moving out and getting married completely ruined the show. All six of the babies now have to be in every single scene. Many of the great old episodes had only one or two kids. Did anyone notice how Suzie and the rest of the Charmicles are hardly in it? and what about Howard DeVille and Charolette, those two are almost never there anymore. The new music is just bad. The music of the origanal episodes was so great. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Repetitive storylines! Every episode these days is exactly the same. How many shows can they do which involve some kind of verbal misunderstanding between the adults and the babies? ("Hey, Chuckie, I heard my mommy say they got a doggy bag from the restaurant last night! I bet if we open it up, there'll be a doggy inside!") -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 When Charlette said that Chuckie would never amount to anything just because he was left handed. Like wtf? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Ugh! Why why WHY did they have to bring Dill in? He ruined everything! The Pickles should put Dill up for adoption. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Jumped the shark when Dil was born. I used to love that show. And suddenly, it became too overdone! Tommy doesn't even have hair yet, and he's got a baby brother??? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:17 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Let's see. It jumped a lot. Can you say...DIL. I'm sorry. Dil's pathetic. He's not even CUTE. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 When the original voice of Grandpa died of a heart attack, it went downhill because after he was replaced, Grandpa suddenly sounded like Daffy Duck. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 2:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I didn't *like* Dil per se, but I was not overtly bothered with him. I was amongst the younger folk with the Nickelodeon lineup so naturally I lapped up the Rugrats very readily. There was definitely a difference when he came to town, but during those years Rugrats would be something I would watch if there was nothing else on (i.e. when the hotel rooms had a few cable channels consisting mostly of sports and Nickelodeon). Kimi though - that was around when I got over Rugrats. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 24, 2013, 8:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Taffy sounds like the parents, who never learn a keystone rule when it comes to child-rearing: NEVER leave your kids unattended. Then again, how would they have their adventures without semi-neglectful parents? The 90s Are All That allows me to see the episodes I missed after stopping early into season 4. Man, talk about going downhill. In the first seasons, the kids got into mischief, though they'd wreck some things in the process. In season 4, they caused chaos and destruction. Angelica is a monster in all the seasons, but things happen to her that actually make you feel bad for her: On a boating trip, she lets her doll water ski, and a fish swallows it. Angelica frantically tries to get it back, and in the process accidentally releases the anchor. Her dad takes her below deck as she tries to explain what happened, but he refuses to listen and tells her to stay down there, leaving her to cry as she's helpless to get her doll back. She's just as much a monster as in the previous seasons, though. Possible more so: when they were at the car wash, she accidentally opened the sun roof, and water came in. When Chuckie tried to close the sun roof, she fought to keep it open. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2012, 1:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 don't forget taffy the babysitter. she had to be the worst babysitter ever. not a single time did the babies not leave her sight. -- Submitted By: () on February 10, 2012, 1:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Judging from the comments and reasons listed, I can assume that, to most people, Dil was the beginning of the end, while Kimi was the nail in the coffin. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on April 22, 2011, 6:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 SamuraiPanda, speaking of funny, I remember a post from the old JTS site that said there was a parody of Sadaam Hussein in Rugrats! -- Submitted By: (MacFan95) on December 7, 2009, 7:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I agree wholeheartedly. Dil was the final straw. I could handle Susie, even though it never seemed to me that the babies were outmatched by Angelica, but Dil just ruined much of the dynamic of the show. Previous to this, Rugrats was wonderful. It was funny and fun. The babies went on the greatest adventures, so similar to the ones I went on as a kid, when everything seemed so big and "grow'd-ups" seemed to talk so strangely. In the end, I think it was simply the fact that the main audience for the Rugrats had gotten too old by then and when Dil arrived and stayed, it only marked how juvenile the show still was. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 21, 2009, 1:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
