I got the chance to review Rugrats: Season 1, Volume 2 and here is what I thought
Rugrats: Season 1, Volume 2 continues the Rugrats adventures of season 1. The episodes included on the two-disc set are:
- The Werewoof Hunter
- Chuckie vs. the Vacuum / Gone Teddy Gone
- I, Baby / Fan-gelica
- Captain Susie / Bringing Up Daisy
- Wedding Smashers / House Broken
- Lucky Smudge / Our Friend Twinkle
- Rescuing Cynthia
- Queen Bee / Phone Alone
- Night Crawler / Goblets & Goblins
- House of Cardboard / Fluffy Moves In
- Susie the Artist / A Horse is a Horse
Each episode features our favorite voice actors who are reprising their iconic roles: EG Daily (Tommy Pickles), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie Finster), Cheryl Chase (Angelica Pickles), Cree Summer (Susie Carmichael), and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil DeVille). As stated before, in my review of Volume 1, I find this epic!
Along with the original cast, we also get a few other famous voice overs in this episode collection. For example, in the 30-min episode, Rescuing Cynthia, Tori Kelly and Jordin Sparks guest star as Cynthia (Kelly) and Tabitha (Sparks). Of course, with such talented musicians making their debut in the Rugrats, it is only natural that we get three original songs: Cynthia is Everywhere, New Star in the Sky, and Friendship Sold Separately.
I actually enjoyed this episode with all the fun characters, colors, and music. It was Angelica’s story but still had our lovable Rugrats. I found my toes tapping to the beats, laughing at a few of the scenes, and overall, enjoying the story.
Another episode where the story is fun to watch is Goblets & Goblins. Hinting to the game of DnD, this episode has the Rugrats looking for treasure in a world where Goblins live. Time to pull out those d20s and make those initiative rolls. I have to admit I had a blast watching this one. Honestly, it isn’t a surprise that the Rugrats go a little geeky. In the original series, there were often hints to Doctor Who because the creators loved that series: i.e. the screwdriver.
Many of the episodes in this volume are very fun to watch. While this is a remake of the original babies with crazy imaginations, it does do the Rugrats justice for a new generation. With life lessons of bravery, learning, and geeky fun, it is certainly a series worth watching. A few things rustle my feathers (explained in previous reviews) but the series has some bright moments.
