  • The Most Powerful Episode of Rugrats in My Opinion

    I have always felt sad whenever I lost a pet that I loved dearly, but I manage to keep memories about it and maybe sometimes laugh.

    If I loved a certain food for a very long time like Angelica had loved cookies, I don't think I could ever resist it for a very long time. I like sub sandwiches, Italian food, and a lot of desserts. I could not imagine never eating them again unless they caused me pain with any system in my body and just couldn't eat them anymore because of that.moreless
  • Of all the Rugrats episodes i've seen, this is one of the memorable ones...

    One day, I was out with my friends, we got to talking about how one of our friends pets dying. And of all things to remember we remember how Chuckie's pet bug dies. Now being older, we could not believe that almost all of us instantly remembered the episode but were not sure about its name. Mel, Melon, Melvin, Melvale NO it was Melville! I think this characterizes the early years of the Rugrats series. It was very comical how they tried to replace it with a snail! In the second part of this episode, Angelica's greed is epitomized in how she tries to steal all cookies. The relationship between the babies and Angelica goes from bad to good to bad again as in many other episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • I Remember Melville displays the Five Stages of Grief (a.k.a. theKübler-Ross model) throughout the episode, with Chuckie...

      1. Denial: Chuckie first keeps denying Melville is dead and desperately tries to awaken him.

      2. Anger: Chuckie is angered when the others try to tell him Melville is dead, and that the "replacement bug" is really a snail.

      3. Bargaining: Chuckie attempts to show that Melville is fine by having him perform in a "circus."

      4. Depression: Chuckie finally realizes Melville is truly dead and cries over it, even when the babies eat chocolate pudding (as he remembered he and Melville liked eating pudding together.)

      5. Acceptance: The ending when Chuckie starts laughing at the funeral, remembering all the good times he had with Melville, shows he has now accepted his pet bug's death.

    • Goof: In the episode "I Remember Melville" Lil's bow is yellow in one scene.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Tommy, Phil and Lil notice Melville lying on his back, not moving...)
      Lil: Maybe he's tired.
      Phil: Maybe his batteries ran out.
      Lil: Or maybe he's dead.

    • Angelica: Excuse me a sec, I'm gonna go check on the babies. (Angelica leaves)
      Tommy: Hey Chuckie, where'd Angelica say she was going?
      Chuckie: To check on the babies.
      Tommy: Oh, okay.
      Everyone: We are the babies!

    • (Angelica starts to ravenously eat cookies that fell into a washing bucket)
      Tommy: But Angelica! They're all wet and soapy!
      Angelica: I don't care! (Eats more, then starts to groan) Tommy? Closer... closer... (Screaming) Never! Never! Ever! Let me have cookies again!

    • Lil: "Dead" means that you go to sleep for a long time.
      Phil: Like forever.

    • Chuckie: He was the bestest bug I ever had.
      Phil: He was the only bug you ever had.

    • Angelica: ...I learned all the different varieties: (Pausing between each one to reflect) Chocolate Chip! Oatmeal! Gingerbread! (Flashback ends) Each one delicious; special in its own way. So you see, Tommy, cookies made me who I am.

    • Tommy: I promised Angelica that no matter how much she asked, no matter how much she begged, no matter how much she cried, I wouldn't let her have any cookies! And, guys, I'm gonna keep my promise!
      Chuckie: I love it when he gives these big speeches.
