You've probably heard this already, but there's a super-dark theory about the beloved '90s show Rugrats that will destroy your soul.
The theory states that none of the babies are actually real. They only exist in Angelica's imagination — she invented them on account of her parents' neglect:
Chuckie died with his mother, which explains how much of a nervous wreck his father was.
Tommy was a stillborn baby, which explains why his father, Stu, was always in the basement making toys for the son he never had.
The DeVilles had an abortion. To compensate for not knowing the sex of the baby, Angelica invented twins in her head, one boy, one girl — aka Phil and Lil.
Susie is Angelica’s only friend, and plays along with her hallucinations so she doesn’t take away her only coping mechanism.
Dil was the only baby who couldn't speak like an adult because he was the only baby that wasn’t a figment of Angelica’s imagination.
