Gabor Csupo, Paul Germain & Arlene Klasky

The inspiration for Rugrats came when Arlene was working from home and taking care of her infant children. One day while working on concepts, she wondered, if babies could talk, what would they say? She shared the notion with Gabor and soon the visual world came to life. Gabor's original drawing of Tommy was based on his own son; pigeon-toed, skinny legs, big head and no hair.

Where did the name Rugrats come from?

It's a Navy term

Rugrats was unique because it was an intelligent show for intelligent kids
