'Rugrats' being rebooted for new TV series & movie

According to WTAE, "Rugrats" is about to teach a whole new generation to hold on to their diapers.

The classic Nickelodeon cartoon from the 1990s is making a comeback, following the success of recent revivals of other '90s Nick staples like "Double Dare" and "Hey Arnold."

Nickelodeon has ordered 26 new animated episodes of "Rugrats," and will also partner with Paramount Pictures for a live-action movie that will integrate CGI characters.

Both projects will feature lots of familiar faces, like Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Phil and Lil, in addition to introducing brand new characters.

Nickelodeon President Sarah Levy announced, "'Rugrats' is hands-down one of the most celebrated cartoons in TV history, and we are thrilled for a whole new audience to meet these iconic characters in brand-new adventures.

"What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: Kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can't wait for today's kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals."

"Kids who grew up with Tommy Pickles and the 'Rugrats' crew will now be able to share that experience with their own children," Paramount Pictures President Brian Robbins added.

"Rugrats" originally premiered on Nickelodeon back in 1991, had three feature film spin-offs and a tween-centric animated series called "All Grown Up!," which ran from 2003 to 2008.
