Rugrats originally premiered in 1990, following a group of babies - Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Phil and Lil DeVille, and Angelica Pickles - as they found adventure in the world around them.

The show quickly found a place in pop culture history through its iconic characters with their inventive imaginations, storytelling, and differnt visual style. Today, Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures announced a two-part relaunch of the classic cartoon from the 90s and 2000s: First up for Nickelodeon is a new, 26-episode animated-series revival; second is a live-action film with CGI characters, which will be handled through Paramount Players, the new film division launched to develop projects based on properties from Viacom cable channels.
