List of Rugrats characters

From Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rugrats_characters

Rugrats includes a large array of characters: family, friends, extended relatives, townspeople, and fictional characters. This is a list of characters from the Nickelodeon animated television series, its different movies, and the 2021 reboot.

Main characters

Tommy

Thomas Malcolm Pickles (voiced by E. G. Daily, Tami Holbrook in the unaired pilot) is the older son of Stu and Didi Pickles and serves as the series' protagonist. Many episodes take place in the Pickles family home and are centered around him and his family. In the series' premiere episode, " Tommy's First Birthday", he is a year old and presumably, he remains that age throughout the entirety of the show's run, despite hitting developmental milestones; he is the youngest of the babies until the birth of his brother, Dylan, in The Rugrats Movie (1998). Tommy is white, bald, and toothless (with the exception of " Weaning Tommy", in which he begins teething) and is most commonly seen wearing a light blue t-shirt and diaper with no shoes, unlike the other babies, who are typically fully dressed. As he is an infant, Tommy is often seen crawling but he is able to walk, albeit somewhat unsteadily and pigeon toed, and uses his diaper as a pocket, keeping his screwdriver in there among other things. Tommy is a brave child, with a strong sense of justice, always eager for an adventure and unafraid to stand up for what is right. His best friends are Chuckie and his dog Spike.

Chuckie

Charles Crandall Norbert Finster, Jr. (voiced by Christine Cavanaugh from 1991–2002, Nancy Cartwright from 2002–present), more commonly referred to as Chuckie, is the son of Charles "Chas" Finster, a bureaucrat, and his late spouse, Melinda Finster, and is Tommy's best friend. Unlike Tommy, Chuckie is clumsy and timid; he rarely expresses any desire to go on one of the babies' adventures, instead listing all the reasons they should not go on one, and, whenever Angelica tries to bully them, he unquestionably accepts her treatment and gives into her demands, if she has any. Chuckie is two years old, making him the eldest of the babies, and so, he is the first of them to be toilet trained. He is white with curly red hair, purple-framed glasses, buckteeth, and freckles and wears a red and blue shirt with a picture of Saturn on it, lime green and yellow shorts, yellow socks, and red sneakers with untied laces. In Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, Chuckie gains a step-mother, Kira Watanabe—who later adopts him—and a step-sister, Kimi.

His character design was loosely based on Mark Mothersbaugh, the lead composer for the series. [1]

Phil and Lil

Phillip Richard William DeVille and Lillian Marie Jill DeVille (both voiced by Kath Soucie) are the children of Howard and Betty DeVille. They live next door to Tommy and are fraternal twins, with Lil older than Phil by two minutes. Lil and Phil share many similarities, including a love of dirt, eating bugs, and playing with earthworms, and argue with one another frequently, calling each other by their full name whenever they do so. The two are white with brown hair and wear matching outfits of teal jumpers with yellow ducks on them and pink striped undershirts, though Phil's outfit has blue shorts, while Lil's is a dress and teal sneakers. Looking so much alike, they are often mistaken for one another by adults; the only notable facial difference between the two is that Phil's earlobes are attached while Lil's are not.

Angelica

Angelica Charlotte Pickles (voiced by Cheryl Chase) is the daughter of Drew and Charlotte Pickles, Stu and Didi's niece, and Tommy's cousin. Angelica serves as the series' antagonist, regularly threatening the babies physically or verbally and lying to them for her own amusement, with her actions sometimes crossing the line into cruelty. In her own home, Angelica reigns supreme as an only child, with her workaholic parents showering her with toys and admiration for simply existing, likely to make up for the fact that they are largely absent from her day-to-day life, and unsurprisingly, she is materialistic, devious, and self-centered. Without any parental guidance or boundaries, Angelica has largely been left to determine for herself what is right and wrong, with her idea of "right" normally being what she wants. Though she torments the babies, Angelica, on several occasions, stands up for them against others and expresses a genuine desire to be friends with them. Angelica is white with blonde hair, which is styled with purple bows into pigtails, and wears a purple dress with a red long-sleeved shirt, blue tights, red socks, and purple sneakers. Because of her age, Angelica is able to communicate with both babies and adults.

Susie

Susanna Yvonne Carmichael (voiced by Cree Summer, understudied by E. G. Daily in "The Last Babysitter" and "Angelica's Birthday") is the younger daughter of Randy and Dr. Lucy Carmichael, and Tommy's neighbor. Her family purchases a home on Tommy's street in "Meet the Carmichaels" and their mothers become close friends. Susie gets along well with the babies, despite the age difference, and considers them to be her friends; like them, she does not often get along with Angelica, though she makes a conscious effort to be nice to her. Like her mother, Susie excels in many aspects of her life and has a kind and warm demeanor, her only real character flaw being her competitiveness. She is black with black afro-textured hair, which is styled into three braids and decorated with red hair ties and clips, and wears a yellow and purple dress with white lace socks and red slippers.

Kimi

Kimiko Watanabe-Finster (voiced by Dionne Quan, Charlet Chung from 2021-present) is the child of Hiro Watanabe and Kira Watanabe-Finster and Chuckie's step-sister. Her mother marries Chuckie's father Chas in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie and he later adopts her, assuming the role of her father for all intents and purposes. Kimi is bold and fun-loving, meaning she gets along well with the other babies, especially Tommy, and protective of her older brother while, at the same time, encouraging him to stand up for himself. She is Japanese and has black hair, which is styled into three ponytails held together by red hair ties, with bangs and wears a yellow dress with a purple cat face on it, a pink t-shirt, and purple cowgirl boots.

Dil

Dylan Prescott Pickles (voiced by Tara Strong) is the younger son of Stu and Didi Pickles, a schoolteacher, and Tommy's younger brother. He is a newborn for much of the series, meaning he rarely partakes in adventures alongside the other babies, and is often seen drooling, crying, or babbling. Because of his young age, Dil cannot understand the babies and the babies cannot understand him.

Spike

Spike (voiced by Michael Bell in a dream sequence in the episode "In the Dreamtime", Bruce Willis in Rugrats Go Wild) is the Pickles' family dog. Though he appears in almost every episode of the series, he is not usually featured as a main part of episodes. Tommy claims him to be his best "animal" friend. The character is considered a main character in the series, appearing in almost three-quarters of all of the episodes, though he usually does not come along when the Rugrats venture to new locations. It is mentioned in "Spike Runs Away" that his breed is the fictional " Siberian Tiger Hound". As shown in The Rugrats Movie and Rugrats Go Wild, Spike is very protective of the babies, as he sees them as his own.

  • Melville: Chuckie's first pet, who was a Pillbug that died in the first episode he aired in. At the time of death, Chuckie was in the midst of training Melville to perform circus tricks.

Television characters

  • Cynthia: Angelica Pickles's favorite doll. Based on the American doll, Barbie.
  • Reptar (voiced by Busta Rhymes in The Rugrats Movie only): A big green dinosaur reminiscent of Godzilla. Tommy and the other Rugrats love him; Reptar products such as cars, clothes and candy are frequently seen on the show. Reptar was a main character in Rugrats in Paris and had his own theme park called Euro Reptarland. There was a giant Reptar robot there too, which the babies piloted and fought against Jean Claude. He has also had his own ice show, which Lou believes is "sheer brilliance". The babies interrupted it looking for a lizard which they believed was "Baby Reptar".
  • Robosnail: Reptar's arch enemy. Robosnail is a mechanical snail with snapping pincers. He made a special guest appearance in Rugrats in Paris, controlled by Jean Claude. Robosnail and Reptar fought throughout Paris and he wound up falling into the Seine.
  • Dactar: A big Pterodactyl who fights Reptar on TV. He resembles Rodan from Godzilla, ironic, since they are generally depicted as allies, despite them fighting in Ghidrah, the Three-Headed Monster and Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II.
  • Thorg (voiced by Phil Proctor): A giant gorilla who is an enemy of Reptar. In the episode "Toy Palace," Tommy and Chuckie activate a large robotic Thorg, who chases them through the store, repeating his catchphrase "Thorg hungry! Thorg want eat!" He is made to resemble King Kong. He'd been sent back in time.
  • Captain Blasto (voiced by Adam West): From the early seasons of the show. A spaceman who hosts his namesake show, a low budget locally made kids program that is reminiscent of the Captain Video series of the 1950s. In Super Hero Chuckie, Chuckie, Angelica, Stu and Drew go to see the show made at the television studio, where they learn the secret about how Captain Blasto flies (a cable that attaches to his costume).
  • The Dummi Bears: A cartoon watched by the babies, although it seldom interests them and Grandpa Lou, in particular, despises the program. It is a spoof of the Care Bears (though the name is more a play on Disney's Gummi Bears). Susie's father Randy Carmichael was a writer for the show, and in one episode, the babies are taken to a movie theater to see the Dummi Bears movie (they escape from their parents to go see the Reptar movie, and cause havoc in the movie theater).
  • Blocky and Oxwinkle (Blocky voiced by June Foray): Stu and Drew's favorite cartoon as babies. Blocky does most of the talking while Oxwinkle just made a sound. They are an obvious parody of Rocky and Bullwinkle.
    • Yuri and Svetana (Svetana voiced by June Foray): A pair of villains who try to trick and get rid of Blocky and Oxwinkle, and calling them "Elk and Weasle". They are a parody of Boris and Natasha, and their nicknames for Blocky and Oxwinkle is a parody of "Moose and Squirrel". In an example of stunt casting, Foray, the original voice of Rocky as well as of Natasha, provided the voice of their Rugrats universe counterparts while Yuri doesn't talk much.
  • Alan Quebec (voiced by Alex Trebek): He hosted "Super Stumpers," the fictitious game show on which Didi Pickles appears in the episode "Game Show Didi."
  • The Mega Hyper Heroes: The superheroes that the babies watch on TV. The babies imitated the characters by calling themselves the "Mega Diaper Babies". They only appeared in the episode "Mega Diaper Babies" and appear to be based on the Fantastic Four. When four teenagers join their rings together, they become the Mega Hyper Heroes where they work to save Earth and the universe from various villains who would do something like hog the world's oxygen supply, drain the oceans, or blow up the universe.
    • Changeling (voiced by Neil Ross): Johnny is the leader of the Mega Hyper Heroes. When he becomes Changeling, he can turn into any animal.
    • Miss Invisible (voiced by Kath Soucie): Diane is a member of the Mega Hyper Heroes. When she becomes Miss Invisible, she gains the power of invisibility. In addition, she also has her own plane that she flies.
    • Flaro (voiced by Gregg Berger): Marco is a member of the Mega Hyper Heroes. When he becomes Flamo, he can ignite himself on fire with a flick of his wrist.
    • Bolt (voiced by Jim Turner): Ricky is a member of the Mega Hyper Heroes. When he becomes the Bolt, he turns into an 8 ft. purple-skinned man who has the combined strength of two strong men.
  • Metallitron (voiced by Gregg Berger): A giant robotic enemy of the Mega Hyper Heroes. Even though Metallitron has a male voice, the character is identified as a female. Metallitron is liked by Angelica.
  • The Mole People: Reptar's archenemies.
  • Goober the Gopher: A friendly, hug-loving character created by Lipschitz Industries as a friendly children's icon resembling Barney The Dinosaur. In one episode, the grownups got rid of the Reptar decor in the babies' room figuring it scared Dil and replaced it with Goober the Gopher. This led the babies to get Reptar and Goober to fight for who should be the better mascot.

Real people

  • Chick Hearn (voiced by himself): Appeared in the episode "Touchdown Tommy" as the sports anchor of a football game;.
  • Pat Sajak (voiced by himself): Appeared in the episode "Chuckie is Rich" as the host of a Publishers Clearing House-like contest, where the grand prize was $10 million and was won by Chas Finster.

The Rugrats Movie characters

  • The Circus Monkeys: A band of various species of monkeys from a local Russian circus that escaped from a train accident. In the end, they are reunited with their owners.
  • The Banana Brothers (voiced by Abe Benrubi and Phil Proctor): The ringmasters of the Banana Brothers Monkey Circus and owners of the monkeys. They went to get some coffee, when the monkeys took control of the train and crashed it (though all of them survived, surprisingly uninjured).
  • Scar Snout the Wolf: A scary huge wolf who wants to kill and eat anyone who trespasses into his territory. He was inspiration of tyrannosaur and the worst predator in the woods. He scares both the babies and the monkeys; in the climax of the film, he tries to stalk the babies intent on killing them, but is defeated by Spike, the Pickles' dog. The two fall down the bridge whereon the babies are standing, but only the Wolf is killed by the fall, making him the only character in a Rugrats movie to be killed.
  • Ranger Frank and Ranger Margaret (voiced by David Spade and Whoopi Goldberg): the two forest rangers who help the parents find the babies. They are the first people other than the normal gang to see the Reptar Wagon. Ranger Frank is cowardly and excitable, whereas Ranger Margaret is more calm and rational.
  • Rex Pester (voiced by Tim Curry): a nosy and arrogant news reporter who hampers the adults' efforts to find the babies as well as Spike. He mispronounced the babies' names as well as mistaking the Reptar Wagon for a horse.

Rugrats in Paris characters

  • Coco LaBouche (voiced by Susan Sarandon): She runs the amusement park EuroReptar, a Japanese theme park in Paris. Her boss Mr. Yamaguchi is offering her the job for president of the company, but only if she learns to love children, to which she lies and says that she is engaged. This sets the climax for the film. The real reason she brought the Pickles and gang to France is so that Stu could fix Robo Reptar. She also plans to marry Chas by wooing him for the sake for the promotion and kidnap the babies because she hates kids; when her plans got discovered, her wedding gets called off and Mr. Yamaguchi fires her, much to her humiliation. Then Angelica steps on her wedding dress, causing it to rip to have her underwear shown in front of everyone, including some people with cameras.
    • Jean-Claude (voiced by John Lithgow): Coco's right-hand assistant. He is loyal to his boss and helps her with the kidnapping of the babies. He usually has the job of telling Kira what to do. He is more sensible than Coco, he also pilots Robosnail and seems to have fears with dogs as Spike chases him away from the Notre Dame Cathedral.
  • Mr. Yamaguchi (voiced by Mako): The president of Yamaguchi Industries (the main sponsor of the Reptar franchise) and Coco's boss. He made a cameo appearance in The Rugrats Movie, where his face is in a newspaper article holding a toy design contest, which inspired Stu to make the Reptar Wagon. In Rugrats in Paris, Mr. Yamaguchi appeared in person as he plans to step down as president and find a successor who cares for children (since they are the main audience for the Reptar franchise). At first, Mr. Yamaguchi is fooled by Coco into believing that she loves kids and that she's engaged to Chuckie's father Chas, which prompted him to pass over the promotion to Coco after the wedding. However, Yamaguchi is unaware of the fact that Coco actually despises kids (including Chuckie) in general and that she only plans to marry Chas for the sake of the promotion. Fortunately, in the end, Angelica and the babies interrupt the wedding and revealed Coco's plot, which drove an angry Yamaguchi to fire Coco on the spot for her cruel actions.
