3,000 hours ago, you, me, Chuckie, and Kimi became a family. Happy anniversary Kira.

Charles Norbert "Chas" Finster, Sr. (born April 26, 1956) is Chuckie's father, from whom he inherited his adenoidal whine. He met, fell in love, and married Kira in the second Rugrats movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. Formerly a Bureaucrat, now the co-owner of a coffee shop known as the Java Lava Coffee House with Kira. Chas is also Kimi's adoptive father. His first wife was Melinda Finster, but she is deceased.


Chas is Chuckie's father, Kira's new husband, and Kimi's adoptive father. Like his son, Chas also has his adenoidal whine and also seems to suffer from many types of allergies and appears to have asthma.

While he tends to be timid and quiet and a bit wimpy like Howard, Chas does have a much more of a speaking role. He does try to be more brave, like his son. He seems to also have a fear of clowns. Like Didi, Chas follows up on the advice of Lipschitz with caring for Chuckie, who he loves very much. However unlike Didi, he tries doing things his own way at times. One example could be in "Down the Drain" when he uses a record and his two sock puppets to try and convince Chuckie and Tommy that they don't have to be scared about taking a bath. Despite his allergies, Chas does have a garden and a greenhouse he's working on.

It's revealed in Mother's Day, how he's worried for Chuckie missing Melinda. Chas does miss her deeply, but was more worried about Chuckie and his lack of a mother.

In Rugrats In Paris, he's slowly tricked into believing that Coco LaBouche is in love with him and loves Chuckie. Believing he loves her too, he comes very close into marrying her. Until he hears Chuckie's first word "No" as he rushes into the church to him, realizing that Chuckie is terrified of Coco, he calls off the wedding. Soon after though, he falls in love with Kira, after realizing they both have more in common, and they get married.

As revealed in The Fun Way Day, He is co-owner of The Java Lava Coffee House, with Kira co-owning as well. They buy the coffee shop in a previous episode, Sweet Dreams.

In Finsterella, Chas adopt's Kimi. Chas and Kira celebrate their first Easter together in Bow Wow Wedding Vows. Chas and Kira celebrate their first Christmas together in Babies In Toyland. Chas and Kira celebrate their 10th Wedding Anniversary in the All Grown Up! episode Petition This! which Kimi and Chuckie throw a party for them.


Chas is mostly peach. He has uncontrollable red hair and a pair of purple square-lense glasses. The character wears a brown and black striped shirt, a purple bow tie, brown shoes, and green pants with green suspenders. His appearance and attitude depicts him as much younger than most of the other grown ups. In All Grown Up!, his appearance changes the least of all the adults, and the only signs of his age is shown through constantly having back pains.

Chas appears in most episodes of Rugrats. His first appearance was in Barbecue Story. His last appearance was in the All Grown Up! episode Brothers Grimm.


  • In Finsterella, Chas legally adopts Kimi as his daughter. That technically makes him Kimi's father and not just her stepfather.
  • Some of the terms of endearment used toward Chas from Kira are "Koibito" and "Koibito Doll". Koibito is a Japanese saying used only if you truly mean the other is your love. Only said to a life long partner. Kira also calls him "Anata",  which means Darling in Japanese. It is often used by loving wives to their husbands when they want something.
  • Kira is called "Dear" by Chas.
  • In All Grown Up! Kira calls Chas "Honey" and "Sweetheart".
  • In the Rugrats book Babies in Reptarland, it says Chas and Kira got married six months after the trip to Paris.
  • "Children Are My Life" is the poem in Rugrats in Paris that Chas and Kira love.
  • In Rugrats Go Wild, Chas tells Stu that the Lipschitz Cruise was going to be his and Kira's honeymoon before Stu messed it up.
  • A running joke in the show is that Chas is allergic to quite a lot of things. He mentions being allergic to cats, dandelions, mini-blinds and gold lockets.
  • He used to have a cat named Yowler, but his parents had to give him away when he started showing signs of being allergic to it.
