    I really loved the special and the series, but one thing confuses me. The special takes place 10 years into the future while the series takes place 9 years.



    Special: 10 years later - Tommy, Kimi, Phil, & Lil are 11; Chuckie is 12, Dil is like 10, & Angelica & Susie should be 13.



    Series (when it started) - Tommy, Kimi, Phil, & Lil are 10; Chuckie is 11, Dil is like 9, & Angelica (until 'Lucky 13') & Susie should be 12



    My question is this: Does the special take place before, after, or somewhere in the middle of the series?



    Another thing. Kimi said in the special that the Emica concert was going to be their first concert, but in the first season episode 'Tweenage Tycoons' the 6 of them are going to a concert and this is 9 years later from the Rugrats series. Unless the Rugrats, having knowledge of the future has altered the way things happened, I think the writers made a couple booboos.

  • i watched it for the first time in years last night on netflix... holy cow that was good

    I remember, as a kid, watching this a lot. The night it aired, and I also had a VHS of it. Watched it a few times. I hadn't seen it for years, but I decided to watch it last night. The plot itself is great; the babies want to be older, so Angelica will not boss them around anymore. So, we get a glimpse of the babies as preteens.



    Chuckie likes Angelica's friend Samantha, but he is definitely too shy to make a move. Angelica realizes this, and let's just say that even as a preteen/teen, she is still a brat. Tommy and all his friends plan on going to an 'Emica' concert, as well as Angelica and Samantha. Angelica keeps lying about different things she has, clothes-wise, and says that she has a medallion just like Emica. Well, that's half-right… her Uncle Stu does. You see, while the kids are off at the concert, the grownups are going to be in a dance competition. Stu and Didi think they will win because of Stu's 'lucky medallion.' Angelica then tries to get Tommy to get it for her, so her friend will not know she was lying, and in exchange, she will tell Samantha how awesome Chuckie is.



    Tommy agrees, and makes a fake medallion with a dog treat, wrapping it up like the real one. He exchanges it, but right in the morning, Spike eats it. He also snatches the real one too, thinking it too was a dog treat. Didi and Stu are outraged and ground Tommy so that he can't go (he doesn't mention it was Angelica's plan).



    Everyone is bummed Tommy can't go to the concert, and the kids are in the sandbox. However, they feel the medallion; Spike must have just buried it. Tommy tries to give it to his dad, before they leave for the dance competition, but he is too late. Tommy tries to get Dil to give it to them, but his friends think he should; after all, now that it has been found, Tommy shouldn't be grounded.



    However, Tommy has a babysitter; Susie. He tries to sneak out, but Susie is too smart. However, instead of being mad, she wants in on whatever plan they are cooking up (she wanted to go to the big Emica concert, but it was sold out).



    Tommy and the gang get to the concert, and immediately when they do, Angelica comes running to them, begging for the medallion. But Tommy forces her to tell her friend the truth. Afterwards, Angelica gives her ticket to the concert to Susie, and Tommy, Dil and Angelica rush to give Stu his medallion, before they themselves go to the concert.



    But now, Susie has Angelica's ticket, and Angelica can't get in. Her and Tommy say some 'nice' stuff to each other about what it has been like being cousins, and Grandpa Lou hears (probably the funniest moment in the special; apparently Grandpa Lou likes to keep hip with teen singers), and gives Angelica an extra ticket he had.



    So now the concert has begun, and Emica says she needs someone to help sing. She picks Tommy, and Angelica (who begged her to do it). They go on stage, and sing a song, and during the song we see flashbacks of the Rugrats TV series with them as babies. This scene caused a little waterworks from me. Rugrats was a huge part of my childhood, I loved them, and to see them as preteens, and then, in the same special, to also see them as babies, in the middle of it all… god, I loved this show a lot. After the song, we see them as babies once more, and they have made Angelica very mad. They all keep hope that '10 years from now Angelica won't boss us around anymore".



    Great special, that is pretty much all that needs to be said. A+moreless
  • I LOVE THIS EPISODE!!!IT IS MY FAVOURITE ONE EVER!!

    I like this episode of rugrats. In this episode the babies steal Angelica\'s toy and of course Angelica chases them to get it back. The babies decide to go into the futureso they hide in the closet and go into the future. **In the future** There is going to be a concert and this will be their first concert in which they go to. Angelica gets Tommy to steal his dad\'s scorpion neclace madallion thing. Tommy then gets in trouble and can\'t go to the concert. He gets grounded. Chuckie, Phil, Lil and Kimi try to help Tommy escape so he can give the scorpio medallion back to his dad. Suzie, who was babysitting Tommy, decides to let Tommy go. Those guys run off and after such along time get the medallion to his dad. Meanwhile Angelica is waiting for Tommy to show up with the medallion cuz she promised a friend that she had the medallion. Her friend doesn\'t know that she was lying. Soon her friend does know. After countless times her friend forgives her. At the Emica concert, Emica picks 2 people to come up and sing with her and she picks Angelica and Tommy. Those guys sing that \"I\'ll be friends with you, you\'ll be friends with me\" song. At first they\'re are singing it well but then the two start grabbing the mike from each other.**Back to the past**Tommy and Angelica are trying to grab the karoake player from each other. Sooner or later this ends. I like this episode alot. It was really grat and I loved it! This is like my favourite episode of Rugrats/All Grown Up!!!moreless
  • This was a very nice and fun episode.

    7.8
    I liked this episode while I think it did a very great job I just do prefer the normal episodes of Rugrats/All Grown Up. I really liked the flashbacks and of course going 10 years ahead of time. I really liked the Emica concert. I liked all of the practicing and the actual Dinasours of Disco scenes. The scene where they sung together was pretty nice and I liked how they fought over the microphone. I also thought the "Dr. Spooky" movie was cool. I really liked the You were there for me song. I thought it was really funny when Tommy patted down Charlie's hair because he looked really awkward and it reminded me of Ron from Harry Potter. This was a great installment but I think it was a tad boring for some reason I can't put my finger on. I think that the RugRats/All Growed Up just wasn't made to be streched out into such a long period of time but I still think it was nice. In conclusion while it's not my favorite thing to do strech out plot into an episode it was fun but a little boring.moreless
  • This episode is the first episode to show them grown up. It is good

    9.0
    This is a really good episode and it was a rugrats special. It is the first time that they show them grown up. I liked it. The rugrats want to go to a concert. Tommy looses his dads dance necklace and can't go. He finds it and is able to go to the concert. It shows all kinds of times when they were babies. This is a really good one and is one hour long.moreless
