18 Reasons Everyone Loved ‘Rugrats’ While Growing Up

If you grew up in the 90’s, you were most likely a Rugrats baby. If you didn’t, then you’re probably (definitely) tired of hearing about the 90’s and how awesome Rugrats was (still is). There’s a reason this show still has people talking about it 23 years after it first started, and 10 years after the last new episode. It taught us a lot of valid life lessons, skills, and more.
