The Rugrats Movie is a 1998 American animated adventure comedy film based on the Nickelodeon
animated television series Rugrats. It was directed by Igor Kovalyov and Norton Virgien and written by David N. Weiss & J. David Stem. The film introduced Tommy Pickles' baby brother Dil Pickles, who appeared on the original series the next year. The film features the voices of E. G. Daily, Tara Strong, Christine Cavanaugh, Kath Soucie, Cheryl Chase, Cree Summer, and Charlie Adler, along with guest stars David Spade, Whoopi Goldberg, Margaret Cho, Busta Rhymes, and Tim Curry. The events of the film take place before the sixth season of Rugrats.
Plans for a Rugrats film adaptation, along with Ren and Stimpy and Doug, began when Nickelodeon made a contract with 20th Century Fox to produce films between 1993 and 1995. However, the contract expired with no films into production. Around the same year when contract expired, development of the film restarted with Paramount Pictures since Nick's parent company, Viacom, purchased the studio in 1994.
The film was the first animated film from Nickelodeon Movies, as well as the first to be based on a Nicktoon. Paramount Pictures originally released it in the United States on November 20, 1998. The film received mixed to positive reviews from critics and grossed $141 million worldwide, making it the first non-Disney animated film to gross over $100 million in the United States, and also making it the highest-grossing animated film based on a television program until the premiere of The Simpsons Movie in 2007.
