Here's something to make the millennials in the crowd feel positively ancient: Today marks the 20th anniversary of the day 'Rugrats' first premiered on Nickelodeon.



Don't pretend you don't remember the misadventures of Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil, and Angelica -- 'Rugrats' ran for 14 years (the longest-lived Nicktoon to date, premiering alongside 'Doug' and 'Ren and Stimpy'), spawned three movies, countless video games, an 'All Grown Up' spin-off, and remains the only Nickelodeon show to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In a 1995 TV Guide interview, Steven Spielberg described the show as "sort of a TV 'Peanuts' of our time," and IGN ranked it #92 in their list of Top 100 Animated Series. Not bad for a bunch of babies who can't even talk, right?
