Gotta love teasers where...nothing happens. But hey, it's cool they got the original voice cast back (apart from Chuckie, of course, for tragic reasons).

In this teaser, nothing *really* happened: video unavailable, at least here.

Try this. Not exactly something to get hyped over. Pretty faithful designs, think they transitioned pretty well. Oddly smooth compared to the lumpiness of the Klasky-Csupo style. Neat about the voices!

No, I won't get hyped over that. How ugly!

Better look at the rest of the characters:

Looks rather empty and dark. Something about their eyes. They look like plastic toys...

They look pretty spot-on to me. The problem, of course, is that they were never really designed to be 3D. And I always found the Klasky-Csupo designs ugly to start with.

A look at the entire gang:

The only one missing is Howard, Phil and Lil's dad.

Full trailer:



Alternate link in case that's geo-blocked.

Bothers me how they changed "Baby's gotta do" to just "baby", dropping the S. Sounds off. Stu sounds horrible.

Yep, geolocked, so thanks for the alternate. Can’t say it’s something that I’m going to be jumping to see, though; the whole Rugrats thing came along the wrong time for me so I never got into it, so I can’t really say anything about the voices as I was never the biggest fan, but it looks much better in motion, almost stop-motion like.

Theme song:

Wonderfully pays tribute to the original while updating it. Not too shabby.
