Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • When Chuckie swallows a watermelon seed the babies are forced to shrink themselves and go inside him.

    This episode packed so much action, adventure, imagination, and humor into 11 minutes that is became my favorite episode. And thats saying a lot since i grew up with this ow and hold it in very high regards. It is a classic that every child should get to enjoy. I love this show, I love this episode, and most of all I love everything about rugrats. This episode especially had some really funny moments. Like Angelica trying to make the seed grow, and Phil and Lil playing with Chuckies monstrius boogers. Hilarious, and exciting, truly a classic. This should not be missed.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: In a scene before the babies & Angelica go into Chuckie's body Tommy had something pink stuck in the back of his diaper. But once they go inside the body its gone.

    • Goof: The Rugrats are scared because Tommy's Aunt (ANT) is coming, and it is established that she is a relative of Grandpa. However, when the Aunt shows up, she looks exactly like Angelica. Angelica is an exact replica of HER mother, yet the Aunt is on Angelica's FATHER's side. How did that happen?

    • Goof: The aunt gets to sleep in grandpa's room. When the aunt is preparing to go to bed, she takes off her wig and places it on top of the bowling trophy. And then she walks out of the room to go to the bathroom. When Tommy and Chuckie walk in shortly after that, when they're about to walk in, they show the room from Tommy's view. But if you look at the desk where the bowling trophy is, the wig isn't there.

    • Goof: In "Aunt Miriam", Aunt Miriam's meat changes from the first shot. After a couple of shots, the meat disappears.
