Rugrats premiered in August 1991 on Nickelodeon. The animated comedy series, one of the first three Nicktoons, aired for nine seasons and 172 half-hour episodes.

The success of the series resulted in three theatrical movies, two post-series direct-to-video movies, and two spin-off series (All Grown Up and Rugrats: Pre-School Daze). In 2021, a reboot of the series debuted on Paramount+ and Nickelodeon.

About The Show

From investigating the big white flushy thing in the bathroom to making sure their uncle isn’t a robot, there’s always big mysterious to solve and endless adventures to be had when the Rugrats are around. These babies may be little, but they have a lot to say. The best part? The adults can’t understand them… but YOU can. Hang on to your diapies, babies, we’re goin’ in! [via Nickelodeon]

* An interesting note about episode #132 and #133: Starting with June 2002 repeats, Nick replaced #133C “Falling Stars” with #132C “Wash/Dry Story”, while keeping #132C in tact for airings of #132 (essentially removing “Falling Stars” from airing). At some point later, for sure when the show reran on Nick in early-2011, they started airing “Falling Stars” again, but paired it with #132A/B instead. Meaning both the original #132C and #133C aired later, yet they were paired with the wrong A and B segments. The production order and first premiere order listed above is correct, though.
