I'm Still Not Over The "Rugrats" Episode About Angelica's Brother

I STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES.

You probably remember the show Rugrats. Y'know, that '90s cartoon about the babies who can secretly talk and have all these crazy adventures. It's generally a wholesome, silly show.

Viacom

BUT. There's one episode that pretty much traumatized everyone who watched it. And I'm here to ruin your day by reminding you of its existence:

Viacom

The episode starts with our 3-year-old queen Angelica Pickles just living her best life as an only child.

But then Angelica's parents, Charlotte and Drew, have a surprise announcement: they're having a baby! And Angelica is shook.

Viacom

Soon, Angelica's parents can't seem to talk about anything except for the new baby. Literally, it's all they talk about. And Angelica worries they've forgotten her.

Viacom

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR DAUGHTER, CHARLOTTE!

One night, Angelica drifts off to sleep and has a dream about the new baby. At first the dream seems totally normal and cute...

... except it's not. Because this "baby" is a literal fucking NIGHTMARE!!!

Viacom

His name is Big Boy Pickles and he's TERRIFYING. He's about 12-feet tall (and somehow just keeps getting bigger??) and ridiculously creepy-looking. He chases Angelica all over town...

Viacom

... and then literally tries to EAT HIS OWN SISTER!!!!!

Viacom

Um, what the hell, Nickelodeon?

I can still hear him screaming, "Now you're num-nums!"

Viacom

Luckily, Angelica wakes up from her nightmare and realizes the giant devil baby isn't actually real...

... but wait! It also turns out Charlotte isn't really pregnant after all.

Viacom

You're telling me we went through all that emotional turmoil for nothing?

You'd think Charlotte would have at least, like, confirmed the pregnancy before calling her assistant and demanding to have the office converted into a nursery.

So yeah, in conclusion... I'm still messed up over this.
