Yeah I know. I am 15 and I still watch Rugrats, so sue me. Anyway, I've been looking into it and the third Rugrats Movie will have the title shared with The Wild Thornberrys (The movie is supposedly called "Rescue Me".). Now is it just me, or does The Wild Thornberrys suck? I've never really liked it but I've always been fond of Rugrats. Now with a combo movie I don't know what to think. Also, The Wild Thornberrys are having their big screen debut in The Wild Thornberrys Movie on December 20th 2002. Why can't Nickelodeom just give the Thornberrys their movie and the Rugrats their own? This sucks. Who agrees with me? Also, I think that "Rescue Me" is scheduled in theatres in mid-November (like the other two Rugrats Movies were) but with delays in production it may premiere in early 2003.

Why can't both these shows be eliminated and the creators hunted like wild pigs, so that Nick can air more episodes of Invader ZIM?

S'okay to like cartoons, but a lot of people think it's weird.  Like just today, I was watching "As Told By Ginger" before dinner and my dad was all, "Aren't you a little old for this?"  The answer is: no.  no no   You can never out-grow cartoons.  And heck, Invader Zim is a lot wittier and funnier than anything you'll see on NBC. 
Now, about the movie.  I personally think it's a bad idea to blend to two shows.  I mean, the animation is different for both shows so it would be a bit weird to see them together on the big screen.  I mean, I'm really not in the mood to find out that "amazingly" Eliza can talk to babies too.  Or that the Pickles hire Debbie to babysit.  It just doesn't work.  I like the Wild Thornberrys and Rugrats is okay, but I seriously think Nickelodeon should have thought this through before they gave it a greenlight.
Oh, yeah.  And make us "Invader Zim", "Fairly Oddparents" and "As Told by Ginger" movies!  wink

I hate nearly all Klasky-Csupo productions with the white-hot intensity of ten thousand suns dipped in habaņero juice. So combining two of them... not my cup of mocha.

Unless it's "Duckman Murders the Rocket Power Kids".  evil laugh

I second that sentiment, though they get props for doing The Simpsons at the beginning. I forget what the deal was, but KC's head didn't like The Simpsons and tried screwing things up.

If you want to be polite, Rugrats is a passable kiddie show. But sheesh...Wild Thornberries. As Told By Ginger. That other stupid show, with those kids. You know the one I mean. How can one animation studio contain so much suckiness? I hope this terrible movie puts them and Nickelodeon completely out of business.

Aaaaah!! Real Monsters rocked all over the place. I'd love to see a full-length movie with Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm, and--no offense to Pixar--no Billy Crystal to be found. I've never seen Santo Bugito, but that looks pretty sick, too. I've glanced at Thornberrys and Rocket Power--the one Fishy was trying to remember--but while they're okay for pre-teen Cuberts, they ain't no big thang.

Give Nick credit, Fishy. They've been a launchpad for some good stuff, and keep many talented people in animation working when the market's dry. It's not their fault Kricfalusi's an egotistical lunatic who destroys everything he touches...

I agree with FJ. 'As Told by Ginger' sucks.  I watched an episode when I heard it was nominated for some emmy or something.  If people like it, that's cool.  I definately don't think that there's anything wrong with cartoon watching.  I'd reccomend 'Pepper Ann' over 'As Told by Ginger' though

This combo is a bad idea, milking The Rugrats and combining it with a crap show isn't a good move at all.

Can someone give me a name of a animated show that made a good movie? - no this not a rhetorical question (because otherwise I would seriously be basching potential Futurama and Simpsons movies and that is unacceptable)

State the bleeding obvious if you will.   wink

I'll make my point later.

I've never heard about or seen "The Wild Thornberrys" (should I count myself lucky on that accoutn?), but Rugrats have to be some of the worst animation ever. Did they deliberately try to make it ugly? And now they're going to make a third movie?  roll eyes

Tune in to an episode of Wild Thornberrys and you'll see: they're doing it deliberately. Kind of like if Gahan Wilson were Walt Disney in kindergarten. A similar style (different company) actually kind of worked for Jumanji--The Series, because the twisted caricatures couldn't be nearly as ugly as Robin Williams...

Sesame Street rocks!  It entertains me, but that's probably because I have the intelligence of a house fly. 

The Jumanji cartoon was scary. It wasnt just bad style, it had some crappy writing.  A cartoon based on a movie based on a book...  so far down the ladder of classiness.

Cow and Chicken was deliberately bad drawing - I think - well it suited the style of the show I feel. (I don't mean shit animation for a shit show - the show wasn't too bad)

Most of the post-70's Hanna Barbera animation is weird and gaudy to me, but I guess it complements the loud attitudes of today's kid audience.

OH MY GOD!!!! A CROSSOVER MOVIE OF THE WORST TWO SHOWS ON NICK?!?!?!! WHAT THE F***?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Why can't they spend more time on the good shows like Spongebob and ZIM than spend (I.E.: waste) money on crappy crap crap shows like Rugrats and Thornberries and make a crossover? Haven't we learned anything from The Flintstones meet the Jetsons?

You're kidding me right?  How could someone think that Dexter and the Powerpuff Girls are shit?  Wow... I'm shocked and appalled, well not appalled, but shocked.

I agree with B. I don't get CartoonNetwork, but for the brief moment each was on TBS/TNT, I enjoyed the hell outta Dexter's Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls. Simple, yes; shi**y, no.

I find most of the pre-90's HB animation crude and wooden. And the writing has improved beyond measure.

I thought the first two Rugrats movies were cute. That said, I don't salivate at the prospect of a third. When the first nicktoons movie came out (Rugrats) I was excited because I thought it meant that some of my faves would hit the big screen. Then I learned they wanted to waste money on Good Burger and make a second Rugrats movie. This summer another nicktoon grabs the silver screen. (Hey Arnold!) Justice has been done. As for the cross-over movie that is the topic, my interest lies only in seeing how they do it. My guess is it will be some bad writing, but we might be suprised.

Finally, "Hey Arnold" gets a movie! It used to be one of my faves, but I only got back into it as of lately.  Lemme tell you, it's soooo much more deserving on the big screen than Rugrats or The Wild Thornberrys.  Now, where's my Invader Zim movie?  And for that matter, what about Chalk Zone?  smile
