Rugrats was one of the most iconic, influential, and memorable cartoons of all time. In the heyday of Nickelodeon and Nicktoons, it reigned supreme (no easy feat) and it's certainly one of the best animated series of all time. But you were likely just a young rugrat yourself when you were enjoying this television show, so why not get educated on the behind the scenes facts and other fun Rugrats trivia you might not have picked up on back in the '90s?

Since its main protagonists were all so different, Rugrats gave kids a broad spectrum of characters to relate to. Even its antagonist, Angelica, had her good qualities and gave older sisters a show they could watch with their younger siblings. Meanwhile the show was teaching children important life lessons and morals left and right, hidden in the fun times of these crazy kid characters. It really was the perfect kids show and there hasn't been a kids cartoon series quite like Rugrats since!

Lets take a look back at this colorful animated world of '90s nostalgia and dig up some Rugrats facts you may not have known and be sure to upvote the most interesting Rugrats TV show trivia below!
