For readers of a certain millennial persuasion, Rugrats it was all. The Nickelodeon animated series, which originally aired between 1991 and 2004 (along with some movies and They all grew up spin-off), was immediately iconic thanks to its unique imagery, surprisingly mature, idiosyncratic storylines Mark Mothersbaugh score, and of course, that beloved lizard monster known as Reptar. Now all these millennials Rugrats fans are about to have a disorder of opinions with this new Rugrats revival series coming to Paramount +. As revealed during the network’s TCA presentation on February 24, the series will have its original cast saved, yay! – but a new style of CG animation instead of the 2D look of the original – yum!

The original cast is back: Daily EG (Tommy), Nancy cartwright (Chuckie), Cheryl chase (Angelica), Summer Cree (Susie) and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil). Watching this opening clip gave me goosebumps sometimes, they all sound exactly Just like their characters, the dynamic between Angelica and Chuckie is fierce and fun, they’re watching a fucking special from Reptar, and Mothersbaugh’s bizarre vocal score “Bahh bahh” is kicking in all its glory. And yet … this style of animation seems like a demotion to me. I don’t necessarily mind a CG change if it looks good, and this doesn’t look good. Are these unfinished images rendered specifically for this preview? Will I get used to “weird, quick eyes”? Should I just relax and accept that this is a series primarily for children? Probably that last one, right?
