Episode Summary

EDIT
Grandpa & Aunt Miriam returned from a vacation and got gifts for everyone, except for Dil, whose souvenir was misplaced. So Dil wouldn't be left out, the Rugrats went on a vacation of their own in their own tour bus (Reptar Wagon), just so Dil can have a souvenir of his own. On this adventure, they visited locales such as the "Graham Canyon" (Grand Canyon), the "Pile of Rockies" (Rocky Mountains), St. Louis, the Everglades, and, of course, the "Statue of Library" (Statue of Liberty). Meanwhile, Angelica and Susie become "Easy Riders" on their own journey across America, on the run because of their criminal acts (that is, if you consider dumping cole slaw "criminal").moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: When Susie & Angelica are at the diner eating pie Susie says "Thanks Angelica for sharing that was the last piece of pie." If you look behind them on the counter you can see a complete piece of pie, un-eaten."

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (3)

      • This is also the first English-language Rugrats video to be released under 2 different names -- in the US, the video is known as Rugrats Discover America (left), but in Canada and elsewhere, it's Babies On Board (right). Reason? Apparently, Nick wanted to promote America patriotism in the US, while they kept the title a little "low-key" elsewhere. Note that the Canadian edition has no Statue of Liberty.

      • This is also the first English Rugrats episode to make its US TV debut not on Nickelodeon, nor in millions of homes across America, but in the electronics departments of over 2500 Wal-Mart stores nationwide, transmitted via the closed-circuit Pics Retail Network. Pics was also responsible for presenting live concerts of Garth Brooks and Faith Hill, both exclusively for Wal-Marts. While the tape's street date is May 5, Wal-Mart did not start selling the tapes themselves until after the telecast. The premiere is followed by an in-store scavenger hunt, where kids can search for the Rugrats and America's landmarks by roaming the aisles of Wal-Mart. This was all part of a month-long promotion in May 2000 at Wal-Mart, in celebration of the Rugrats.

      • An episode as American as apple pie, yet it appeared first in French in France and Canada -- go figure. Unlike the past couple of seasons, when new episodes appeared first on YTV in Canada, this episode, and Be My Valentine, premiered first on France 3 in France, then on Canal Famille in Canada, before appearing on English-language video in the US & Canada, or televised on Nick or YTV.
