Rugrats Reboot

One of Nickelodeon’s crown jewels from their library of Nicktoons is undoubtedly the quirky animated series Rugrats. The series followed the imaginative antics of a group of toddlers who got into mischief and could talk to each other when their oddball parents weren’t around. Now there’s a Rugrats reboot in the works at Nickelodeon, both in the form of a new movie and a new animated series.

Nickelodeon has ordered 26 episodes of a Rugrats reboot that will bring back beloved babies Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica for a series of brand new adventures. On top of that, there’s also a new Rugrats movie in the works. Both projects will also introduce a new world of characters with the babies everyone already loves.  However, unlike the original series, the new movie will feature a blend of live-action and computer animation, and if the character designs carry over from the original series, this has the potential to have horrifying results.

Double Dare Reboot Host

Last month, we found out Nickelodeon was bringing back their beloved game show Double Dare. The game show and several varying iterations that followed it focused on two teams competing to win prizes by answering trivia questions and partaking in super messy physical challenges. The new show will very much have the same format, but it will have a new host that Nickelodeon is bringing in from YouTube stardom.

Liza Koshy, best known for her YouTube channel with over 14 million subscribers, has been named as the Double Dare reboot host. If you’re one of those fans who was hoping Marc Summers would return as host, don’t worry. The former Double Dare host will return as a color commentator during the game show’s physical challenges.

‘Double Dare’ is Coming Back to Nickelodeon

Double Dare Reboot

Nickelodeon continues to dig back into their library of programming from decades ago for shows they can bring back for a new (and old) audience. They previously brought back a bunch of their old programming from that decade for a block called The Splat. Then they decided to make TV movies for both Hey Arnold! and Rocko’s Modern Life (which is coming sometime this year). More recently, they decided to reboot Clarissa Explains It All. But now they’ve turned to their game show programming for some nostalgia.

Nickelodeon has announced their beloved game show Double Dare will return to the cable network for kids with all-new episodes this summer. So brush up on your trivia, and get ready for some slimy, sticky physical challenges. Read More »

Rugrats Reptar Bars

One of the most beloved cartoons to come out of Nickelodeon in the 1990s was Rugrats. Though the show lost its way after the movie turned the characters into more of a cash grab commodity, the first few seasons of the series are quirky, clever and full of fantastic pop culture references and parodes for cinephiles.

One of the most famous pieces of pop culture parody from Rugrats is the giant lizard monster known as Reptar. An obvious spoof of Godzilla, the green dinosaur had his own movie that Tommy Pickles and his friends tried to sneak around a multiplex to see, his own ice skating extravaganza, action figures and more. But easily the two most coveted pieces of Reptar memorabilia were the Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal, and now you can get your hands on both of them right now.

Find out where to get these Rugrats Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal below. Read More »
