‘Rugrats’ grows up

Tween show first out of spinoff gate

Nickelodeon will spin off hit animated series “Rugrats,” but with a different take than previously announced.

Net, which had been developing three different spinoffs, had announced “Angelica and Susie’s School Daze” back in March at its upfront presentation. “Daze” was meant to focus on characters Angelica Pickles and Susie Carmichael in preschool. Instead, series “All Growed Up,” which portrays the tykes as tweens, will be the first out of the gate. Series is derived from a special — also called “All Growed Up”– that shattered ratings records for the net when it aired last July.

“All Growed Up” will air concurrently with new original episodes of “Rugrats,” giving viewers a chance to see all the kids at two different stages in their life. Ani house Klasky Csupo is now at work on 13 episodes to debut in 2003.

“The Rugrats property is 11 years old, so it feels just right to have the babies turn into tweens in their 12th year on the air,” said Cyma Zarghami, Nick’s exec VP and general manager.

“Daze” will be repurposed as a series of four standalone specials.

Launched in 1991, “Rugrats” has matured into an all-media franchise. Skein has thus far yielded two features and a wide range of ancillary consumer products.
