The upcoming Rugrats series looks totally different from the original one. It is in 3D this time around which is a bit jarring but alright. But we can take comfort in the fact that the original voice cast is back for more action. And, to get everyone hype for their triumphant return, the crew got together for a Rugrats reunion. The video is all sorts of entertaining with funny anecdotes, a table read, and fun trivia as they slip in and out of their character voices.
Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil), E.G. Daily (Tommy), Cheryl Chase (Angelica), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie), and the incomparable Cree Summer (Susie) came together for some wonderfully childish fun. There’s no talent in the world quite like creating a completely different voice/character on demand. And, we get to learn a bit more about their bond with each other and the series. For example, Cree Summer reveals that her favorite original series moment is a Kwanzaa episode. Summer said the special shows Suzie’s healthy, loving Black family, which is an important level of representation.
The cast also reveals that the new series will reveal more about Reptar and dive into Chuckie’s dad’s ear. Daily says she loves voicing Tommy because of his broken voice and fans ask her to quote lines all the time. Of course, “a baby’s gotta do what a baby’s gotta do!” is the most popular one of all. Cartwright says Chuckie is extremely funny and afraid of literally everything, thereby proving that some things will never change. In fact, they are all still the same characters we know and love. And now a new generation will fall in love with them too.
The team gets put to the test about their knowledge about the characters, including what they wear, their age, and their looks. The video wraps up with a table read of a classic moment where Tommy loses his ball and gets super upset. Honestly, this video will make you want to check out the series, which is now streaming on Paramount +.
