Clan of the Duck is a season 4 episode of Rugrats.



The babies are outside making mud castles as they are complaining about the heat. Betty and Didi come outside, talking about the big food fair. Tommy, Phil, and Chuckie notices that Betty is wearing pants as they are curious about how girls can wear pants and dresses. Lil tells them that boys wear pants, and that girls wear dresses. Didi takes Tommy and Betty takes Lil to get them ready for the fair as Howard promises to drive Chuckie and Phil to the park.

Chuckie and Phil decide to wear dresses, to see what it's like and they find out it's kind of fun. Dresses make it cooler, they can make great parachutes, you can roll around in them. Chuckie figures that he can just go to the toilet easier with a dress as he goes to the bathroom while Phil gets tired and decides to take a nap. Chuckie sees him and thinks that dresses also make good pajamas as well. Just then Howard wakes up and realizes he is late for the fair, He gets in his car and drives off, before realizing he forgot Chuckie and Phil. He goes back and gets them and takes off for the park not realizing Phil and Chuckie were wearing dresses.

At the park, a boy named Joey greets Chuckie and Phil as he tells them that they are at the food fair. He then offers them some gummy worms when Chuckie says he is hungry. Joey then goes to his lunchbox as a boy named Frankie sees Chuckie and offers him some chocolate. Joey tells Frankie that he saw her (Chuckie) first. Chuckies is about to say he's not a girl, but then Phil asks how much chocolate. Frankie hears Chuckie call Phil by his name, but phil says his name is "Philian" and Chuckie is "Chuquita". Chuckie then asks if he can have a worm and Joey gives him one and he enjoys it.

Joey tells Frankie to go away, but Frankie says that he could have Phil. Joey doesn't want to share and the boys start a tug-of-war over Chuckie then they suddenly release Chuckie, as his blue underwear is exposed. Frankie laughs at the fact that Joey thought Chuckie was a girl, but Frankie also thought he and Phil were girls. They then decide to get them, stating that boys aren't suppose to wear dresses. Chuckie and Phil start running through the fair. Inside they stumble upon a sumo match. Chuckie then asks that if adults can wear diapers and girls can wear shorts, then why they can't wear dresses? Phil thinks it's because those 2 boys will will beat them up. 

Phil and Chuckie split up as Chuckie accidentally walks into a Jewish dance area. After escaping Chuckie and Phil run into each other, and the 2 boys find them soon after. Phil and Chuckie try to throw pies at them only failing to throw far as the start running again. They then ride down a big slide and into another foreign area. Phil asks where they are, but Chuckie justs thinks everyone is naked. A boy tells them they are not naked, and that they are Scotch-babies. The boy thinks that the dresses Chuckie and Phil are wearing are kilts. He also thinks they are the "Clan of the Duck" (their dresses have ducks on them).

The boys show, and Chuckie claims that they're going to be mean to them. The Scottish babies defend them by lifting their kilts, exposing their undergarments. Chuckie and Phil do the same after them, and the boys leave thinking they were all weird. Didi, Betty, and Howard arrive and see something weird as Howard says he thought something wasn't right. Tommy thrm walks by wearing a shirt like it's a dress as Didi was going to stop him but decides to let him join. Tommy thanks the Scotch-babies for helping Phil and Chuckie as Lil thanks them for the haggis and asks what it is. The Scotch-babies says it's sheep guts as Phil and Lil lick there lips. The four friends then leave and the Scotch-babies gave one more cheer for the clan of the ducks as they cheer them by lifting all their kilts up.


  • It's revealed that Betty and Lil are taking a mother/daughter-women's empowerment class.
  • In Scotland, while it isn't unheard for women to wear kilts, it's more common for men to wear kilts.
    • Also, kilts are traditionally only worn for special occasions (like weddings), and it's unusual to see them worn as everyday street clothes.
  • Haggis is actually made from sheep guts.
  • We see that Phil and Lil have beds now instead of cribs like they had in "The Unfair Pair".
  • A man strongly resembling physicist Albert Einstein appears dancing the hora.
