But, will the Rugrats obey the librarian's rules to keep quiet, not eat, and to put the books back? Meanwhile, Chaz's library privileges are revoked when the strict librarian noticed a microscopic tear on a book's cover, forcing him to make a deal.
The gang visits Grandpa & Lulu's retirement home, where they danced and played golf. Later, at Tommy's house, Angelica "retires" the Rugrats, just so she could watch "Cynthia P.I." in peace. It's especially important, as that episode included a sweepstakes draw for a truckload of Cynthia merchandise. But she soon learns that being in a retirement home isn't strictly quiet sleeping.
The Doctor Is In /
The Big Sneeze
9 Feb 2002
Didi and Betty were listening to a radio program hosted by a woman with strong attitudes on parenting. That radio show led to Didi and Betty reevaluating their parenting skills, but when they refused to see eye-to-eye on parenting, they start to reevaluate their friendship. This inspires Angelica to open her own "office" to dispense important advice to the Rugrats, in order for each other to stay friends -- she told Tommy not to be so bossy, Phil & Lil not to be gross, Chuckie to be brave, and Kimi to be like Angelica.
Everytime Kimi gets close to Chuckie, he sneezes. The cause of this? Dandelions that Kimi was holding. But Angelica, seeking another opportunity to fool the Rugrats, said that Chuckie is allergic to Kimi.

The Age Of Aquarium First
23 Feb 2002
Chaz quits his job as a bureaucrat when he finds a new career that's suitable for both himself and Kira -- peddling coffee. In this episode, Chaz & Kira opens a cafe called The Java Lava, which will feature a variety of coffees and other drinks, plus a playpen for the Rugrats and the other visiting babies. However, the first day of business isn't doing well -- no customers, other than Chaz's friends, came in; there were technical difficulties with the equipment (some of it invented by Stu); and the coffee is too strong, even for Betty, who normally swears by it. Kira's solution -- hire a Feng Shui (pronounced "thing schway") expert to find the faults with the business, and to rearrange things to make things better, spiratually. This not only involves rearranging furniture and appliances, but also placing various gems and trinkets arround. That makes the Rugrats believe that the "Fun Way" guy came by to play a game with the Rugrats.
The gang visits a marine theme park, which practically resembles Sea World on the cheap -- your run-of-the-mill stage show, an exhibit of the world's greatest maritime disasters, a souvenir stand with tired employees hawking bubble guns, and a trained shark show -- using mechanical sharks. The Rugrats, as usual, run away to the park's centerpiece -- a ship that houses the park's aquarium. This, of course, leads the Rugrats to believe that the ship is sinking, so they find ways to float the already dry-docked boat.

Helpers / Hello Dilly First
9 Mar 2002
The grownup women leave the men in charge of the Rugrats while they attend a "Moon Goddess" fair, where Charlotte was invited as a guess speaker. However, the new-ageish atmosphere and attitude has gotten the best of Didi -- especially when she's told "You're not a wife; you're not a mother; you are a goddess." Before leaving for the fair, she told the Rugrats to help their dads out, so they did everything they were supposed to -- with hilarious results. Meanwhile, Chazz devises a special activity schedule, while Stu builds a dollhouse / playpen that is escape-proof -- for grownups.
Angelica takes her "life-like" doll, which happens to look like Dil, to pre-school. But after one of her classmates brought a similar type of doll to show-and-tell, Angelica delayed her presentation a day, so she could switch her doll with the real thing -- Dil. But with Dil at school and her doll at Tommy's house, the Rugrats were led to believe that Dil turned into a doll because he was bad.
|#824 Cynthia Comes
Alive / Trading Phil First
6 Apr 2002
At the Java Lava, Angelica brings over her new "Hip Teen Cynthia" doll, which talks. However, when Angelica wasn't looking, the Rugrats have broken the doll. Shortly after Stu took it home to fix it, Cindy, a high school intern, came over to work at the Java Lava. When they noticed that Cindy looks and talks like Cynthia, Angelica and the Rugrats thought that Cynthia came to life. Meanwhile, Cindy causes trouble for the Java Lava by not working at all -- she considers nail polish, magazines, and phone conversations to be more inportant than actually working.
At the park, Angelica wants to play with a couple of 4-year-old girls. However, those girls dislike anyone who's 3 years old, like Angelica. So, she convinces the girls that she's 4 years old by trading Phil in exchange for their jelly-based toy. In return, Angelica promised that she'll be nice to the Rugrats. However, Phil wants much more than that. Meanwhile, Grandpa tries to teach Spiffy, one of Spike & Fifi's new puppies, new tricks, but Dil was proven to be more obedient.

Puppies / Okey-Dokey Jones and the Ring of the Sunbeams First aired:1 Jun 2002
Now that Spike and Fifi have a family of their own (in "Bow Wow Wedding Vows"), there's one problem -- what should the Finsters do with all those puppies? Solution -- give them away to good homes, of course. With the Finsters already having a dog of their own, they plan on giving ALL their puppies away. But one of them, Puppy, is too scared to leave, while the brave Spiffy is actually happy to have found a new home. Evidently, Puppy ended up being a permanent part of the Finster's household, while Spiffy will be living with his dad -- at Tommy & Dil's house. But watch how all this plays out, especially as Angelica wanted a dog of her own.
Grandpa and the Rugrats take a trip to a store that specialises in tropical pets, as Grandpa was interested in buying a talking bird for Lulu. After Grandpa buys those little toys out of the gum machine for the Rugrats, Lil gets a toy ring, which was called "the Ring Of The Sunbeams", a ring that's so special, that Angelica wants it all for herself. When the ring landed in a monkey cage, this otherwise-simple trip becomes a Rugrats adventure, when the Rugrats, a.k.a. "The Okey-Dokey Jones Adventurers", pretend that they are battling a villianess named "Miss Angelique", played by... you know who. Miss Angelique wanted that ring, as she believed that it would grant her her wish -- to be the queen of the world.

Special: In this episode, the Rugrats' parents take them trick-or-treating for the first time, at an amusement park. But of course, there has to be the hard way -- Angelica explains to the Rugrats what Halloween is, but, as usual, she always does it in a way to scare them even more. She tells them that if they dress up as a certain character, they actually become that character, and remain so for the rest of their life. Chuckie, who planned on being a werewolf, especially becomes traumatised by her story, to a point where he starts having nightmares about what Angelica said. However, Angelica is willing to turn the little "monsters" back into Rugrats, but only if they give all their candy to Angelica. This is especially important to her, as her parents banned her from trick-or-treating after she ate Halloween candy before Halloween. Will Chuckie and the Rugrats know the real truth about Halloween? Will Angelica get her just desserts? Of course, on both counts; but, as they say, getting there is half the fun.

Afterward, she looks at her trusty Lipschitz book, but, when she notices the book's title, "Dr. Lipschitz A to Z, Birth to 5", she worries about what will happen when Tommy turns 6, as, of course, that book only covers children up to 5 years of age. Thinking that using Lipschitz as a crutch would turn dangerous in the years ahead, Didi decides to enroll at a community college for classes in childhood development, with plans on eventually getting a masters degree in that field. However, when the Rugrats hears that Didi is going "back to school", they think that everything is going backwards, and they become more fearful of that fact when they observe Spike walking with a baby bottle in his mouth, and Stu taking Dil back to the hospital (in reality, for a checkup).

Because of that, Stu rigs up extensive video equipment to capture Dil's every move, so he wouldn't miss it again. Also, The Rugrats and their parents remember when the kids first started walking.
With Charlotte busy taking care of business with Jonathan, she puts Angelica in charge of the Rugrats, with one catch -- if she is caught being mean to the Rugrats, then her new Cynthia Dream Yacht sets sail back to the store. But that's not all -- Harold from pre-school is coming over, too. With that in mind, Angelica hires him as her assistant. But while Angelica ordered Harold to boss around the Rugrats, he ended up being a hit with them, to the ire of Angelica.
Special: In this episode, Angelica and Susie go to their first day at preschool at the local community center. However, their first day ended up being a competition on who can be the best preschooler, as Angelica always tries to outshine Susie.

Joining them on the mission to fix her broken cup is Harold, who becomes a pain in Angelica's side.

As she babysits, Taffy teaches the Rugrats a thing or two about music, while trying to come up with a song for her band to play at their next gig -- a grand opening of a gas station. The trouble is, Taffy isn't that great of a songwriter, while Angelica, as always, is tone deaf. As Taffy does her thing with the "minis", the Rugrats' parents, at Betty's insistance, spy to make sure Taffy does a good job. They later find out that Taffy was a good choice as babysitter.

In the Rugrats version, Angelica is secret agent Cynthia, whose mission is to stop Dr. Doomsbake (played by Tommy) from destroying the world's supply of cookies. The reason she likes to play this game is because she likes how the episode ended -- Cynthia gets a parade in her honor. However, the rest of the Rugrats, who were supposed to play Cynthia's assistants, didn't like the idea, so they decided to break tradition and, as they say, fraternise with the enemy. Meanwhile, speaking of cookies, Betty gives Didi her family recipes for healthy cookies, to be used as Didi's entry for a baking contest; but, it turns out those cookies aren't fit for man or beast... or even Angelica.

aired: 11 Feb 2003
Taffy takes the Rugrats to a high school basketball game, where the Hornets are playing the visiting Poodles. However, Taffy "volunteers" herself to replace one of the cheerleaders, after one of them, her best friend Britannica, sprained their ankle, after Taffy caused their pyramid to collapse. As she does so, she leaves the Rugrats alone in the bleachers while she fills in for Britannica, and eventually, everyone else on the cheerleading squad. Because of this, the Rugrats imagine that the Hornets' mascot was actually a real, giant hornet, trying to "sting" the Rugrats.
Didi wanted Stu to clean up the living room for Boris & Minka's visit, which includes putting the toys away. Sarcastically, Stu says that he would put the toys, and the babies, into the crawlspace. Angelica interprets this by banishing the Rugrats to the crawl space, where they could play there, while Angelica has the living room all to herself, to the displeasure of Susie. Meanwhile, Stu invents an automatic plant waterer, but while he accidentally bumps his head, the Rugrats took them into the crawl space. When Stu returned, he thought he was losing his memory.

However, tensions are mounted when the participants' owners feud over how their pets would look, and what tricks they will be doing.
At a fast food joint called "Boingo Burger", Taffy tells her friend Britannica (working the cash register as an employee) to hold the pickles on her burger, as, as she told Britannica, "I don't like dill pickles". The Rugrats, however, has taken this to mean "I don't like Dil Pickles", because he was the youngest of the Rugrats. As a result, they try to make Dil bigger by putting him in a booster seat and stuffing his pyjamas with napkins. Then, after Taffy calls the Rugrats "sweet" for their effort to make Dil cute, they raid the sundae bar and turn Dil into a sundae. When one thing leads to another in the minds of Rugrats, where will they go from here? The kitchen, of course; then the playground's ball pit.

This, of course, leads the Rugrats to believe that they are targeted for an "alien inflation". Meanwhile, Didi studies for an important exam for her college course. Taffy takes the Rugrats to the local park. While there, Dusty, a boy that Taffy meets at a park, shows Phil how to pick up trash.

It's all fun, until Angelica told the Rugrats that, once their parents become babies, she'll be the one in charge.
On Kimi's birthday (she's 2 now, isn't she?), Stu plans to take the kids to a family-friendly place called "The Happy Castle", where Kimi will have her party.

But, of course, they invite the entire gang along for the ride. However, along the way, Minka's necklace, Chuckie's teddy bear, Wawa, and of course, Angelica's Cynthia, had disappeared -- they may have been stolen by a train robber, which Chaz informs the other adults about after reading it in the paper.

At the suggestion of Aunt Miriam, everyone decided to spend some time at Club Fred, a pirate-themed family resort in the Caribbean. And with a two-for-one coupon, they save some money. But, when Grandpa realised that he made an error with the reservations (which he accidentally made only for the elders and the Rugrats; the form for the other grownups was used as a wrapper for his sandwich), everybody ended up staying in a single small hut -- with the entire extended family on the trip, it ended up being very cramped. Their only hope was to win Pirate Fred's treasure hunt, where the person that finds the treasure wins an upgrade to a "5 Room Deluxe Vacation Package". Of course, this leads to another pirate adventure with the Rugrats, where they look everywhere, including a place where no Rugrat should ever go -- a nude beach. Finding the treasure was sure to be an impossible task -- a frequent Club Fred patron visited the resort for the last 5 years, but never found the treasure. But first, they have to break out of "Kid Fred", the resort's day care center.

Special: Betty's relatives from England come to America to pay a visit. Coming along are their kids -- Smedley & Hedley -- who are also fraternal twins like Phil & Lil. Unlike Phil & Lil, Smedley & Hedley dress differently, behave properly, keep clean, and finish each other's sentences without delay or incorrectness; therefore, they consider such "twinny" behavior a sign that they are "perfect twins". This eventually led to Lil wanting to be as prim and proper as Smedley & Hedley, while Phil decides to remain as messy and disorderly as usual. Meanwhile, Winnifred, the British twins' mother, tries to sell Betty on her method of raising twins -- a method that Betty steadfastly refuses to subscribe to. Also, Betty gets the neighbors to pose as her relatives, as her real relatives didn't come, due to Howard's cheap invitation software that he bought at a dollar store. And, Angelica, dressed as a princess for a dance recital, tricks Smedley & Hedley into believing that she's queen of America.

aired: 24 Feb 2003
When Chaz finds out that Puppy is sad all the time, he decides to give her a name. But later, Puppy ended up getting sick, which Chaz though was due to an identity crisis (she actually ate part of Kira's jigsaw puzzle). Noting that, the Rugrats started looking (litterly, around the house) for Puppy's new name. When it came to a point when Chaz started banging his head on the wall, he calls veterinarian Dr. Mutterly to see what the problem was. When the vet came over, the Rugrats thought that he would give the puppy a new name. But of course, his unorthodox methods leave something to be desired.
Howard prepares for a storm called Hurricane Alice, who says that it would turn their house "upside down". While he does that, Betty's old classmate, Sheila (who's also as brute as Betty) pays a visit, along with her daughter -- named Alice. When Alice makes a mess of things looking for toys (or anything that can be one), the Rugrats thought that she was "Hurricane Alice".

Meanwhile, Angelica tries her hand at being an acrobat, a trapeze artist and a ribbon dancer, much to the ire of the real performers.

Baby / Gimme An "A" First
8 Jun 2003
At the local playground, monkey bars and a slide doubled as "Mount Neverrest", on the Rugrats' latest adventure. However, Tommy lost his grip and fell. While Angelica's Cynthiamobile broke his fall, he escaped uninjured, but there's one problem -- he became a fraidy cat. This led to Angelica's own test of bravery, which will determine who's the new bravest Rugrat -- or at least, see if Tommy can get his bravery back.
As part of her science experiment for her Child Psychology degree, Didt takes Tommy and the Rugrats to Kinyuka College, where she tries to find a way to make the Rugrats go to sleep faster, using a wind-up toy that plays lullabies.
