The faces—and voices—of old Nickelodeon cartoons will return to television this year. Along with releasing more details about the Paramount+ streaming service, the company has unveiled a trailer for a CGI reboot of the Rugrats series 30 years after the original debuted on screens.
The revival for Rugrats will see the return of the original voice actors, namely E.G. Daily (Tommy Pickles), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie Finster), Cheryl Chase (Angelica Pickles), Cree Summer (Susie Carmichael) and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil DeVille).
The tots are stuck in the same age, but new 3D appearances add more dimension to their looks. You’ll see more spiky strands of Chuckie’s hair, and Angelica doesn’t look as mean all the time now that animators have more freeway to move her facial expressions around.
See the first look at the revival series down below.

I saw some shots of the Rugrats reboot and wow they look weird. Especially Susie like either she's so short or her head is massive! pic.twitter.com/sXeHCUcCxY
