Fans of the original Nicktoon hit series Rugrats have been beside themselves with joy since Nickelodeon announced its return alongside a live-action movie.
Online, millennials who grew up on the cartoon and even much younger viewers who only got to enjoy it before it's 2004 demise are full of anticipation.
But, one major concern is the quality of the reboot, And especially, the possibility that the live-action movie could ruin their memory of the 90s / early 2000s show.
Rugrats, as many fans remember it, was one of the best cartoons of the last two decades. And it set the pace for so many other cartoons in the time that it aired.
Particularly, when it aired the 1997 Mother's Day episode on twins Phil and Lil being nursed by their mom, Betty, it was one of the most forward-thinking scenes on TV and without meaning to, normalized breastfeeding.
Greatest scene ever?
For most fans and cartoon-heads who remain nostalgic about the show, this was one of its finest moments.
any time a 90s show is recreated its crap...look at duck tales and ninja turtle— 🤡elliott👽 (@jeckelbox) July 16, 2018
this better not be no animi looking crap
orignal cast to do voices should return
They are almost certain that a reboot will make the show lose its magic. Do they have a point?
