Brief History

The series debuted in
1991 as part of Nickelodeon's latest move: commissioning its own animated series. It went out of production in 1994, but after surprisingly high ratings when shown in primetime it was revived in 1997, subsequently leading to 3 films: The Rugrats Movie (1998), which became the first non-Disney animated film to earn $100 million in the US, Rugrats in Paris (2000), and Rugrats Go Wild (2003), a crossover with The Wild Thornberrys. A daily comic strip based on the series also ran from March 1998 to May 2003. In 2001, the show celebrated its 10th anniversary by making a special one-hour episode about what the Rugrats would be like 10 years older. Nickelodeon liked its ratings so much, they eventually commissioned a full series, All Grown Up, which started its regular run in November 2003 (a sneak peek full episode named Coup DeVille had aired earlier in April).
