What The Rugrats are Up To Today!
If the Rugrats aged in a non-cartoon like fashion they would be in their mid-twenties by now; slowly stumbling into their futures and wishing that they made television like Reptar nowadays. Behold the ravages of age!
We learned in All Grown Up that Tommy was beginning a love of filmmaking. After graduating from USC Film, Tommy is still chasing that dream into the mailroom at the Gersh Agency. But don’t worry, he still finds time to write his spec scripts and he got a great lead on representation that he should hear back about any day now. He almost got moved out of the mailroom to a desk but one of the Features reps’ nephews graduated High School and needed a job. But, boy oh boy, he’ll get it next time!
Angelica got knocked up in High School thinking that the easiest path to fame without possessing any talent was to get on MTVs’ 16 and Pregnant. Sadly, the show had hit its quota of horribly self-centered she howler monkeys and it was not to be. Angelica is now the mother of two of the worst behaved children known to man and the angels weep for sweet irony.
Susie was valedictorian in High School, matriculated to Vassar and then Yale Law where she has just graduated top of her class. She is starting as a clerk in the fall at a firm that specializes in civil litigation and is currently moving into a brownstone in Brooklyn with her partner Tanya and their cat Nefertiti. She enjoys sharing her successes directly on Angelica’s facebook wall.
After the tragic death of his twin sister from a freak botulism outbreak in a bad batch of spaghetti, Phil went into a tragic shame spiral fed by alcoholism and drug abuse. Rising like a beautiful sequined phoenix in a bitchin’ weave and smoky eye shadow, Phil took his grief and made it werrrrk. Giving homage to his late sister, Phil performs as Lil DeVille all across the country and will be on the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Little is known about the whereabouts of Chuckie Finster. He was last seen passing out pamphlets for the notorious cult, The Michelle Branch Davidians. Our hopes and prayers are with him.
