Chuckie Finster to Kimi Finster in Finsterella
Charles Crandall Norbert "Chuckie" Finster, Jr. is the adorable best friend of Tommy Pickles and acts as the series' deuteragonist (in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, however, he serves as the protagonist). Chuckie's mother Melinda died from an illness when Chuckie was a few months old. In Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, his father, Chas was going to marry Coco, an evil woman who hates children, and tries to get Chas to fall in love with her, but in the end, Chas fell in love with and married Kira, Kimi's mother. His beautiful new mother is loving and caring, just as his father. Chuckie also has a puppy named Pepper, although it is never seen. Chuckie was 2-years old in Rugrats, 12-years old in the All Grown Up! pilot episode All Growed Up, and 11-years old in the All Grown Up! series itself.

11 year old Chuckie in seasons 2-5 of All Grown Up!.

Description 

Despite his cuteness, Chuckie is pessimistic and scares easily, and at the first suggestion that he and the other babies should do something or go somewhere, he will always say, "Maybe this isn't such a good idea." All the same, he's still best friends with Tommy, Dil, Susie, Harold Wayne Frumpkin, Phil and Lil). Among his fears are adventures, clowns (as revealed in Circus Angelicus), and the "guy on the oatmeal box with the scary hat" (a parody of Quaker Oats). He is loyal and often brave, facing his fears briefly to come through for his friends, whenever there's a problem, Chuckie's there to help his friends get through it emotionally. Chuckie doesn't really like misbehaving, but his friends often get him into trouble. He is very close to his father Chas, and is usually the main target of Angelica's bullying. Chuckie was the only character who did not come from a two-parent household before the remarriage. It is revealed in the episode The Alien that Chuckie has an outie belly button, and is revealed to be left-handed or south-pawed in Chuckie's a Hefty's love every step.

Things had changed for Chuckie in Rugrats in Paris, when he got a pretty new sister named Kimi Finster, and a lovely new mother named Kira Finster.

Looks

Chuckie has a scratchy voice peach skin with freckles, messy orange hair, a pair of purple square glasses with a white tint, a blue shirt with a Saturn on it, green shorts with light green wavy lines, yellow-orange socks, and partially untied red shoes. While being potty trained, he wore white bear patterned, light blue, or beige training pants, then dark blue or white briefs.

Behind the Scenes

The character is voiced by Christine Cavanaugh in a "croaky" voice. However, after Cavanaugh retired for personal reasons in 2002, Nancy Cartwright (of The Simpsons fame) took over the role. Chuckie was also briefly voiced by Candi Milo for at least two Rugrats video games released, around the time Cartwright became Chuckie's new actress.

Trivia

  • Kira legally adopts Chuckie as her son in Finsterella and Chas legally adopts Kimi as his daughter. In a legal sense, that technically makes Chuckie and Kimi siblings and not just stepsiblings.
  • 11-year old Chuckie kept his appearance in All Grown Up!.
  • In All Growed Up (where 12-year old Chuckie appeared), 13 year old Angelica introduces him to 13-year old Samantha Shane as "Charles Finster III," even though his grandfather's name is Marvin.
  • The Behind the Scenes featurette for Rugrats in Paris shows that Chuckie was originally going to sing "I Want a Mom" himself, but this idea was scrapped in favor of having the song performed by Cyndi Lauper.
  • He was played by Christine Cavanaugh, who also voiced Oblina, in another Nicktoon, Real Monsters. Coincidentally, Oblina appeared in the episode Ghost Story.
  • It seems that Chuckie and Susie may have a crush on each other as seen in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie they were dancing together in the beginning of the film. In Junior Prom when the gang pretend to have a prom in Susie's backyard, Chuckie asks Susie to go with him and blushes when she says yes as well as when she accepted his flower. In It's Cupid, Stupid Susie asks Chuckie to go to the Valentine's Day dance with her.
  • As seen in the Season 4 episode "Radio Daze", Chuckie is shown to be ticklish on his foot.
  • It is unknown if Chuckie has any cousins.
  • It is possible that Chuckie's birthday is either in late May, if Tommy's birth is actually August 11, or early April, if Tommy's actual birthday is in June, since in All Grown Up Chuckie mentions that he's a year, 1 month, 3 weeks and 5 days older than Tommy which would make his birthday fall in April. Since Phil and Lil are 3 months older than Tommy and their birthday is March 31st along with the fact that Tomy was born 2 months premature, making Tommy's actual birthday in June but his real birthday supposed to be in August, and according to what Chuckie said would make his birthday most likely fall in early April. Since two months prior to June is April.
  • In All Grown Up Chuckie has been seen as a 3-4 year old, and a 7-8 year old.
  • Chuckie, in All Grown Up, has freckles on his bottom
