About This Quiz

Think you've got the smarts to play with the big kids? Take this Rugrats quiz to test your knowledge of this '90s favorite.

Ready for a Rugrats reboot? It just might be in the works.

Rugrats was the '90s animated series about Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, twins Phil and Lil DeVille, Susie Carmichael, Angelica Pickles, and, of course, the Pickles family canine, Spike. Episodes were often based on Angelica's incessant bullying of the babies, and the lessons and adventures of the gang. The show first aired on August 11, 1991, and wrapped up after nine seasons and 172 episodes.

The show was so popular on the small screen that the industry couldn't resist making a big screen version for moviegoers. The idea paid off with the 1998 "The Rugrats Movie" earning a whopping $140 million from a $24 million budget. The movie was so successful that Paramount and Nickelodeon teamed up again on the 2000 "Rugrats in Paris: The Movie," which earned a respectable $103 million. A third movie sequel, the 2003 "Rugrats Go Wild," did not fare as well, earning only $55 million and barely doubling its $25 million production budget.
