Rugrats: Season 3 and 4 review Bobby Blakey
Over the years Nickelodeon has delivered some fun cartoons that have had a lasted impact over the years including Doug, Spongebob, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and Rocko’s Modern Life. One of their biggest series was Rugrats that ran from 1990 to 2004 and follows the perspective of a group of adventurous and imaginative toddlers, Rugrats transformed the most mundane activities into unforgettable adventures. Last year they brought the first two seasons on DVD and now they are expanding the collection with Season 3 and 4.
Rugrats: Season Three features classic episodes like "Naked Tommy" and "Angelica Breaks a Leg." Viewers will have a blast as they join Tommy, Chuckie and the gang as they grab a screwdriver, break out of the playpen and embark on over ten hours of grand adventures to the moon, North Pole and even to Chuckie's first haircut! Season Four picks up right where season three leaves off and contains over six hours and two discs of adorable adventures from season four. Fans won't want to miss the chance to relive the classic Rugrats family vacation, meet Spike's babies or laugh along as Phil and Chuckie discover the joys of dresses!
There are few cartoons that seemed to have the popularity of Rugrats during its run. You could not go anywhere without seeing some sort of merchandise featuring these characters. Revisiting the series it is no wonder why as it holds up pretty well. I was never a huge fan of the show, but did watch it with my kids when they were younger and it was fun nostalgia to revisit. The entire premise of the show works great and still holds up for this next generation all while keeping the fun for the existing fans. These two collections showcase some more great episodes from these seasons with the excellent animation and art style. No matter what I ever thought about the series as a whole, I always loved the artwork and character designs. They offer up a unique look at each of the characters that help them to not only stand out, but match their personalities to perfection.
Most of the charm here is how memorable and relatable all of these little characters are despite them being babies. I found myself watching through these sets enjoying the show more now than I ever did with some of that being relatable as a parent to seeing how these silly kids behave, but also seeing how creative they got with the storylines and overall direction. Grab your copies of Rugrats: Season 3 and 4 when they hit DVD on February 6th as well as seasons 1 & 2 available now on DVD from Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.
