HOW WAS IT IN THE '90s: "The Inside Story" has always been a highly praised episode of Rugrats, and I remember watching it countless times and finding it brilliant and entertaining. However, at the time, I'd only seen like nine TV shows, so I'm a tad tougher to impress all these years later.
HOW IS IT NOW?: IT'S STILL VERY GOOD. This is like The Magic School Bus as an episode of Rugrats. I hated that I found myself questioning how some moments in the episode could possibly be happening and it turned out Chuckie was dreaming most of it. So, I wasted a solid 10 minutes thinking logically instead of enjoying a freakin' cartoon. It was actually a great reminder to occasionally suspend disbelief and do something I haven't done since I was a kid — relax.
Also, Angelica truly was a vicious monster, even in Chuckie's dream, and it's still hilarious when the little ones mispronounce words (like calling a laser beam a "lazy beam").
RATING ON A SCALE OF 1-90: 81/90
