The Rugrats was one of my favorites growing up and even now I Love to watch for old times sake. But here are some scenes that totally went over our head as kids.
Some of these I understood as I got older like the Video that grandpa Lou was going to watch later on, but it took me a while to know a gross is 144 and that there was quite a bit of Adult jokes in these shows not to be dirty but so they can also gain a parental audience which a lot of cartoons at the time did not have.Even today Cartoons like:Gravity Falls,Adventure Time, Star Vs The Forces Of Evil,SpongeBob,The Loud House all use some form of adult humor to gain millennial audiences. Which grew up watching Rugrats,animaniacs,Dexter's Lab, Powepuff Girls,etc.. Even the predecessors beforehand like Looney Tunes, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones,Popeye, Scooby Doo etc..had humor that went over children's heads. Cartoons are not just a children's market but for everyone.
