Angelica Charlotte Pickles is the main antagonist/singer of the series. While this is so, she acts more as an antihero in the films and often sides with the babies at the end, against the films' respective main villains. She is voiced by Cheryl Chase in both Rugrats and All Grown Up!, and is among the series' original characters. She is a spoiled brat and the cousin of Tommy and Dil Pickles. In 2002, TV Guide declared Angelica Pickles 7th in their list of Top 50 Greatest Cartoon Characters of All Time. She is the arch-enemy of Tommy Pickles and the other Rugrats. Her middle name is 'Charlotte', meaning she is named after her mother, Charlotte. She claims to be 'the prettiest, most beautiful kid in the universe' (which she is). Angelica carries her favorite doll Cynthia (a parody of the popular Barbie franchise) around with her almost everywhere, and fills her room with Cynthia merchandise.

Description

Angelica's the adorable and very beautiful daughter Drew and Charlotte Pickles and the mean, rude and ridiculously spoiled older cousin of Tommy and Dil Pickles despite her cuteness and beauty. Angelica's the main antagonist of the series, as she's often seen bullying and making fun of her cousins and their friends. Since she's older than the babies, who can only communicate with each other and Angelica, Angelica herself can communicate with the adults as well as the other Rugrats, which she uses to her advantage most of the time. When the character Susie Carmichael was introduced, she was soon favored among the babies, causing Angelica to start a rivalry with her. She'll say and/or do anything to get what she wants, even though it normally just gets her into, most of the time, serious trouble.

Cookies are Angelica's favorite food, and she refuses to eat most healthy foods. Even though Angelica's often very mean to the younger Rugrats (including Dil), deep down, she really does care about them and is secretly jealous of them and is actually kind of lonely. For example:

  • Given her mean and bossy personality, Angelica has very few actual friends. Susie, Tommy, Chuckie, Kimi, Phil and Lil are the closest she has to real friends. Especially in later seasons of the show and in the spin-off series.
  • Even though Drew and Charlotte really do love Angelica and spoil her a lot, they don't pay very much attention to her and are generally too busy with work to spend actual "quality time" with their daughter (more so in Charlotte's case than Drew's).

Angelica also seems to be very insecure about being so close in age to the younger Rugrats. She's always referring to them as "just babies" and to herself as an adult, despite being only a year older than Chuckie, two years older than Tommy, Kimi, Phil and Lil, and three years older than Dil.

All Grown Up!

One of Angelica's many appearances in the series.

In the spin-off series All Grown Up!, 13-year-old Angelica's personality has clearly made some minor edits to itself as a part of Angelica's maturity and beauty; she now wears her hair down, goes after boys more often (in Rugrats, though, she was shown to have crushes on a few toddler boys), and has outgrown the habit of carrying Cynthia around with her all the time (although in one episode of All Grown Up!, Angelica desperately tried to get Cynthia back because Charlotte gave her away). Still, a few parts of her former personality remain: she's still very mean, spoiled, and bossy, but to a much lesser extent than she previously was. She and Susie are still rivals, but they're more like frenemies than actual enemies, but Angelica is obviously still very envious of Susie, mainly because of her beauty and her being more talented than Angelica at most things (especially singing).
  • While Angelica was portrayed as having a terrible singing voice in the original, in the spin-off, it's shown that Angelica does have a decent, but she's better at singing in a group than as a soloist.

Looks

Angelica is mostly a peach color. The character wears a purple jumper, a long-sleeved orange-red blouse with flared cuffs, blue and green polka-dotted tights, orange socks, and purple sneakers. She wore a diaper over her tights during season one. She also has blond hair, always worn in two pigtails tied with purple ribbons.

Appearances

Angelica has appeared in most episodes of Rugrats and All Grown Up!. Her first appearance was in Tommy's First Birthday. Her last appearance in the Rugrats series was in the episode Fountain of Youth, with her final appearance in All Grown Up! being Bad Blood.

Trivia

  • Angelica's the only Rugrat to remain an only child throughout the franchise.
    • Tommy and Dil are brothers.
    • Chuckie and Kimi are step siblings.
    • Phil and Lil are fraternal twins.
    • Susie has two older brothers and an older sister.
      • One of the few times where Angelica's expressed a desire to have a sibling was in The Stork and the only time where she's genuinely saddened by the fact that she's an only was in Sister Act. Every other time, Angelica usually expresses her thankfulness on being an only child.
  • It's been implied that Angelica may secretly have a crush on Chuckie, but it's never been confirmed.
  • Angelica is such a spoiled brat in The Original Era that her actions become menacing and villainous, whilst in The Revival Era, that edge seem to have slipped away to cater more for the younger audiences. Her brattiness was still there, though never in the same light to match the Original's.
  • Angelica is one in three of the main Rugrats characters to have the camera viewed from inside her mouth in All Grown Up!. The other two are Dil and Spike.
  • She hates coconut and baked apples.
  • In the life-size doll versions of Angelica, she is shown to have brown eyes, which must have come from her father's side of the family, as Tommy (and most likely Dil), her blood-related cousins, have blue eyes.
