Fans of the 90s animated show, Rugrats, will be pleased to hear that Nickelodeon has plans to revive the series for an initial 26 episode order, as well as bring a live-action Rugrats movie to the screen, that is said to feature CGI characters.
President of Nickelodeon, Sarah Levy, had this to say in a statement:
“Rugrats is hands-down one of the most celebrated cartoons in TV history, and we are thrilled for a whole new audience to meet these iconic characters in brand-new adventures. What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can’t wait for today’s kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals.”
Creators of the original show Paul Germain, Arlene Klasky, and Gábor Csupó are all set to be involved as executive producers. The live-action film already has a release date set for November 2020. The mischievous babies known as the Rugrats were huge during their initial 16 year run on Nickelodeon, and is one of the networks more memorable shows. By reviving Rugrats, Nickelodeon will continue the current trend around Hollywood of nostalgia, in the form of bringing back shows and films that people once loved.
Personally, I was a bit too old to get into the show by the time it came around, though I have seen a few episodes here and there and can understand its appeal.
