Nickelodeon's Rugrats Returning to DVD on July 8th!

Do you remember the Rugrats? The series aired from 1992 to 2004 and spawned three feature films, The Rugrats Movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie and Rugrats Go Wild. Nickelodeon will be releasing two Rugrats DVD titles this Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

Outdoor Shenanigans! (ASIN: B00J5G1NTW; Retail: $9.98) features six outrageous adventures:
  • Discover America
  • Barbeque Story
  • Moose Country
  • Sound Ho!
  • Gold Rush

Join Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Angelica and the other toddlers as they go on an imaginary tour of America. The toddlers help Tommy on a rescue mission to save his favorite ball that was tossed over the fence. After grandpa told them a tall tale about a moose, the toddlers go in search for their own moose. Grandpa tells them another story, but this time it is about pirates, resulting in the toddlers playing make-believe pirates. The toddlers have gold fever after finding a nickle in the playground.

Reptar Returns! (ASIN: B00J5G1PQS; Retail: $9.98) features the toddlers in three exciting episodes, including the very first made-for-TV movie.
  • Runaway Reptar
  • Reptar 2010
  • Big Showdown
After arriving at the drive-in theater, the toddlers get bored and they imagine that they are in the movie, Robot Reptar. The double-length episode, Runaway Reptar, was so popular that it inspired an amusement park ride at Kings Island. The toddlers later supply their own ending to the Reptar movie when the VHS tape breaks. Then its all our war after Did remodels Tommy and Dil's room without their permission.

I was an eleven-year-old when Rugrats first arrived on television screens, but I didn't have access to Nickelodeon at the time, so I wasn't aware of the series until years later. Rugrats reminds me of the 1980s cartoon series called the Muppet Babies, which they are both about toddlers with wild imaginations. Rugrats is a cute series in its own right, especially during the earlier seasons when the animation style was similar to the early years of The Simpsons. Each DVD title is approx. 72 minutes. Two of the episodes are misspelled on these releases. "Discover America" is written as "Discovering America" and "Big Showdown" is written as "The Big Showdown."  Overall, the episodes on Reptar Returns! and Outdoor Shenanigans! are hilarious and entertaining!
