    I think the rugrats were better a long time ago becuase they had good original plots. It seems the babys actually had adventures now they make believe adventures.I think it got boring when they brought dil in and a whole lot worse when they brought in kimmy.

    Thank you topic starter for stating the obvious.

    The original idea of the show was for the world to be interpreted from the babies' point-of-view. It did give way to the babies being unusually intelligent for their age, and that's what made the original show so much fun.

    Rugrats didn't immediately tank when it returned, but it had already downgraded the characters' intelligence, and after a while, hearing them mispronounce MORE words and mishearing adult jargon was no fun anymore. The show officially jumped the shark when they kept adding new characters, which gradually sucked the juice out of the show's original set up.

    This is what always happens when the show creators can't learn to leave well enough alone.

    Rugrats jumped the shark when they brought in Dill...but it was horrible when they brought in Kimmy, WTF! were they thinking. Don't mess up the original plot and characters.

    The other thing I'm mad about is that when they rerun the episodes they don't show any from the original first few seasons.

    I totally 100% agree with you. The hole Dill thing really went pretty far. There is no need for Dill and I don't like him much. (no offence to anybody) And I don't know what in the hell they were thinking when they brought Kimmy on the show. That was a really stupid idea. And personally, I don't like any of the new episodes that much. It really sucks because the old episodes, like the original seasons that first aired back in the 90s where REALLY awesome. I love each and every episode of the OLD Rugrats. And what else I find sad is that we never ever get to see any of the older episodes...

    i do like the older episodes with out her, but i LOVE dil.

    I think that, introducing Dil to the gang was a horrible idea. Tommy shouldn't have responsibilities when he's so young. In some episodes, they can't go on "adventures" because Tommy needs to take care of Dil, or Dil slows them down someway...

    Kimmie should just be sent on a one-way cruise back to Paris, along with her mother and the numerous new dogs on the show (not Spike). The original idea of having the Finster family just a dad and his son was a great idea, now the Finsters are just another complete family on the block...

    I don't know if they are making any new episodes of the Rugrats, but if they do there will be probably 100 more characters added into the cast.

    Old episodes are usually better than new ones, but Kimi's awesome!! Maybe not some of her episodes, but I like Kimi.

    Yeah, the only good thing about the newer episodes is Dil Pickles. The older episodes were much better, but thats Nick for you. Take a good show and completely ruin it in the end. I think Kimi needs to go back to Japan. lol.
