The Rugrats Movie 2nd teaser trailer
[[image:|330px|center|]]
What an awful way to make the 2nd teaser trailer for the first lovable Rugrats movie.
Genre: Horror
Release Date: 1997 (VHS releases)
Runtime: 1 minute
Country: United States
Language: English
Franchise: Rugrats


The second trailer of the film premiered in 1997, Paramount Pictures released the 2nd teaser trailer for the first movie adaptation of the hit Nickelodeon show, Rugrats on Paramount (mainly kid-friendly ones, like from Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.) Videocassettes as one of the VHS trailers (before the VHS’ feature presentation). This trailer received negative reviews from critics, audiences, and Nickelodeon/Rugrats fans alike.

Why This Trailer Sucks

  1. For being a teaser trailer of a kids’ film, this feels more like a horror film trailer, which is out of place for a kids’ film.
  2. This trailer is considered too frightening for younger viewers due to the creepy music, atmosphere, area, and announcer (although Jim Cummings did do a good job).
  3. The TV in the living room area is just plain creepy, with the thunder outside, the objects on the floor (shoe, glasses, and Chinese food), and especially the broken TV.
  4. This gave several people nightmares due to the Reptar Wagon getting the TV (Still broken) blown into pieces from warp speed when the Rugrats logo appeared on the TV screen in static.
  5. This honestly feels very frustrating and scary that a trailer for a great movie turned out like this, and this trailer paints the movie in a bad light.
  6. The fact that this is also on the VHS’ of children’s shows and movies from Paramount, Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. is also bad, especially if your watching the VHS for the first time.
  7. The CGI TV didn't age well.
  8. Angelica and the babies served no purpose to the trailer but filler.
  9. Dil wasn't not even seen in the trailer or even introduced yet.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The animation (excluding the CGI TV) from the Rugrats is honestly pretty amazing, and it’s a step-up from the TV show, just like how the movie would be.
  2. The voice acting is still good as usual, and even Jim Cummings does a good job as the announcer (although, being creepy at the same time).
  3. The other half of the trailer is decent, as it shows Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil riding in the Reptar Wagon, with some funny moments like the bottom of Chuckie’s shoes saying "coming soon", and when the movie’s title was shown, Angelica shows up and puts on movie glasses, claiming "About time someone made me into a movie star!", which was a funny fourth-wall breaking moment.
  4. Thankfully, the theatrical trailer was a major improvement over this trailer.
  5. Also, The Rugrats Movie managed to still be an amazing movie in the end.
  6. When it was seen as a commercial on November 29, 1997 it was less scary and the word "IN ONE YEAR", comes up on-screen before the word "YEAR" leans to the left and the explosion from the TV wasn't as loud. Making it less scary and tame in comparison.
  7. Thankfully this trailer didn't appear on Paramount releases of the "Peanuts" holiday specials even though they were released in 1998.
