Based on the classic Nickelodeon 90s children’s series of the same name, the Rugrats revival was officially confirmed last February. It will see the return of the original main voice cast for the children, Daily as Tommy Pickles, Cartwright as Chuckie Finster, Cheryl Chase as Angelica Pickles, Cree Summer as Susie Carmichael, and Kath Soucie as Phil and Lil.
Joining them are new cast members for the parents, including Tony Hale as Chuckie’s father Chas, Natalie Morales as Phil & Lil’s mother Betty, Nicole Byer as Susie’s mother Lucy, Anna Chlumsky as Angelica’s mother Charlotte, Ashley Rae Spillers as Tommy’s mother Didi, Tom Dewey as Tommy’s father Stu, Timothy Simons as Angelica’s father Drew, Omar Miller as Susie’s father Randy, and Michael McKean as Grandpa Lou Pickles.
The CG-animated series is executive produced by Eryk Casemiro and Kate Boutilier, along with Dave Pressler and Casey Leonard. Rachel Lipman is also serving as a producer, with Kellie Smith set as a line producer.
The original Rugrats was created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo, and Paul Germain. It debuted 30 years ago in 1991 and was in production for nine seasons. Due to its popularity, it spawned off a film trilogy as well as a sequel series titled All Grown Up!, which featured the toddlers in their teens.
