In response to all the cute and trendy interpretations of what the Rugrats would look like today, storyboard artist Eric Molinsky, who worked on the show from 1999 to 2002, set the record straight by rendering his idea of how the characters really would have grown up.

The rendering below is from Celeste Pille. Good - very good - but NO.

And this is from Isaiah Stephens. Also very good… but still very nope.

Molinsky: “We referred to them as lumpy babies for a reason.”

“If we ever drew the Rugrats as being too cute, our executive producer would scold us.”

All of the yes.
