All Grown Up!

All Grown Up! is an animated television series that ran on Nickelodeon from April 12, 2003 to August 17, 2008.

Premise

After the success of All Growed Up, the Rugrats 10th anniversary special, Nickelodeon commissioned a spin-off series based on the episode, All Grown Up! is that series. The show is about the characters of the Rugrats nine years older (as opposed to ten in the All Growed Up special). Tommy, Dil, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Kimi, Angelica and Susie now have to deal with teen and pre-teen issues and situations.

About the show

Production of the show began in September 2002. During summer 2003, teasers for All Grown Up aired. However, the scenes shown were not clips from actual episodes of the show.

The show premiered on April 12, 2003 as a preview before starting its regular run in late November 2003. When the series did start its regular run, more than 3.2 million viewers tuned in (over a third of all kids watching cable in the U.S.), enough to put it into the 2nd place slot for the week (behind an NFL game on ESPN) and making it the highest-rated premiere in Nickelodeon's history at the time. (The April sneak peek didn't make the top 15 cable programs for that week, due to the ongoing war in Iraq.) It aired on Nick on CBS on March 14, 2004 and ended on September 9, 2004. The original titles for this series were All Growed Up! and Rugrats: All Growed Up!.

In addition, in its first season, All Grown Up! had its first and only celebrity guest star. This was Lil Romeo playing Lil Q (Cupid) in episode 8, Its Cupid, Stupid.

In early 2007, All Grown Up! was removed from the Nickelodeon schedule in the United States. Although it later returned, no new episodes have been produced since 2006. The show premiered on Nicktoons Network on July 6, 2008.

Nickelodeon UK aired all 55 episodes before the end of 2006. However, Nickelodeon in the united states didn't air all the episodes until 2008.

Nickelodeon USA aired most of the final series of All Grown Up! in November 2007. This started on November 12 and ended on November 30. The final three episodes aired on August 3, 10, and 17, 2008.

Characters

The principle characters and their traits (as well as their voice performers) have been carried over from the original Rugrats series, with a handful of changes and additional character traits. In All Grown Up!, Angelica's best friend is Samantha Shayne. Samantha makes a small cameo appearance in the episode "Yu-Gotta-Go!". She is seen talking on her cell phone next to Angelica.
