NickRewind to Premiere New 'Rugrats' Shorts on May 27 & 29, 2021

Hold on to your diapees! Tommy Pickles is back in two all-new Rugrats shorts, now streaming before the babies return in the CG-animated revival premiering May 27 on Paramount+.

Following Nickelodeon debuting two all new Rugrats shorts earlier this month, NickRewind will be treating fans to two more brand new Rugrats shorts!

In "The Lamp," premiering Thursday, May 27 at 12:00 a.m. (ET/PT), Tommy and his friends get Angelica to confess that she broke a lamp.

Then, in "The Slide," airing Saturday, May 29 at 12:00 a.m. (ET/PT), at the playground, Chuckie must face his fear of going down the slide.

Update (5/27) - The Lamp" will receive a same day encore at 6:00 p.m. ET/PT on Nick, whilst Nick will air "The Slide" a few hours earlier on May 29, at 5:00 p.m. ET/PT.

If you missed the first two Rugrats shorts, you can watch them in the video player below!

The first short, "Tommy's Ball," recreates a scene from the 1991 first season Rugrats episode "Barbecue Story." When Angelica (Cheryl Chase) kicks a new ball over the fence, Tommy Pickles (E.G. Daily), Chuckie Finster (Nancy Cartwright), Susie Carmichael (Cree Summer), and Phil and Lil DeVille (Kath Soucie) must do "what a baby's gotta do" to get it back.

In the second short, the original "Night Howl," Tommy's dog Spike wakes him up at "night-night time" for a secret outing to see the full moon.

If some of these storylines seem familiar, there's a good reason for that! There's four episodes in Paramount Plus' short-form Rugrats series: three have "modern reimaginings" that recreate scenes from the classic '90s Nicktoons series but with new endings, and a fourth, "Night Howl," featuring Tommy and his dog Spike in an original story created for the new Rugrats.

All four shorts will be available to watch on Paramount+ and the Paramount+ YouTube channel beginning on May 28, one day after Rugrats premieres on the streaming service.

Other animated Nickelodeon exclusives on Paramount+ include the CG-animated SpongeBob SquarePants prequel series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, and the upcoming Star Trek: Prodigy.

"Rugrats is one of the most iconic cartoons recognized by fans around the globe, and this original version is one we are taking great care and pride in creating for a brand-new audience," Ramsey Naito, president of Nickelodeon Animation, previously said in a statement. "Having the voice cast behind these special characters come together is one of the essential pieces to making the show recognizable and we can’t wait to watch this talented group bring them to life again."

"This brand-new CG take on the franchise is packed with all-new stories and adventures for the babies and pairs original voice cast members with an all-star roster of brand-new talent," added Eryk Casemiro, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Preschool and Executive Producer, "making it the perfect combination for the original Nick generation and today's kids."

Streaming May 27th, only on Paramount+, a reimagining of the classic '90s hit, the brand-new series features rich and colorful CG-animation and follows Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica as they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view.
