These actors will be joining the original cast of the show’s toddlers who will be reprising their roles.

“The all-new Rugrats is packed with comedy, music and adventures that only babies can embark upon, and the role of the grown-ups is an essential piece of the series,” stated Ramsey Naito, President of Nickelodeon Animation.
Rugrats will be based on the 1991 series, and will follow a group of toddlers as they explore the world through their perspective. They are adventurous, courageous, and everything looks bigger and more mysterious through their eyes. These adventures will take place as we see them face things they do not understand.
