Dylan Prescott "Dil" Pickles is the younger brother (by one year) of Tommy Pickles, younger son of Stu and Didi Pickles, and younger cousin of Angelica Pickles on the Nickelodeon shows Rugrats and All Grown Up!. Named after Didi's cousin, Dylan "Dil" Prescott, he was born in The Rugrats Movie (released November 20, 1998). His name is a pun on dill pickles. He is voiced by Tara Strong. He's 4 or 5 months old, and likes to call Angelica "yucky."

Dil is the younger brother of Tommy Pickles, who Dil never got along with very well at first. By the end of The Rugrats Movie, both Tommy and Dil had come closer together, with Tommy realizing the importance of his little brother.

Dil joined the Rugrats cast in the year of 1998. From the very beginning, Dil has had curly yet limited hair on his head, and has almost always worn yellow trap-door pajamas (though in his first appearance, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie & Rugrats Go Wild, his pajamas were purple). Because of his age, Dil can't say as many words as the other Rugrats. For the final 5 years of Rugrats' run, Dil had to learn how to be a Rugrat. He always wants everything at his age, and will always do whatever he can to get an object. He is as selfish as his cousin Angelica, and when he cries, he will not stop until something or someone will get his attention, but the difference being that he is a baby and will share things with Tommy and the rest of the babies.

Most of the episodes that Dil is prominent in usually involves the rest of the Rugrats trying to make Dil more like a "big baby", teach him something, or save him from something. When Didi was pregnant with Dil, she and Stu assumed that he was going to be a girl, and had planned on naming the baby "Trixie," after Drew and Stu's late mother (although her real name was actually "Beatrix," but most people called her "Trixie"), but when the baby turned out to be a boy, they named him after Didi's cousin, Dylan Prescott.

Dil always called Chuckie "Chubbie", and in the episode The Jungle, he refers to Phil and Lil "Philip" and "Lilip" respectively. He is a hair puller. Dil remains the same height until a 2003 episode titled Back To School when he, according to his father, Stu Pickles, "grew an inch".

In the episode A Dose of Dil, Tommy feels left out as the adults are giving Dil all the attention because he hurt his finger. Tommy and the gang decide to find ways to get the attention of the adults because they believe that if they do, they will get lollipops, as Angelica shows off that she has loads of lollipops. However, by the end of the episode, Tommy realizes that he doesn't need to cry for attention anymore because his little brother Dil will always be there to listen to him.


Dil has peach colored skin and a pair of white eyes with black pupils. He has a small amount of large curly hair atop his head. The character wears yellow and blue trap-door pajamas.


Dil has appeared in every episode (except 18) of Rugrats since The Rugrats Movie. He made his debut in the movie, though he was mentioned previously in The Family Tree (in which Didi, his and Tommy's mother, realizes that she is pregnant), and made his final appearance in Golden Boy, an episode of All Grown Up!. It can be also noticed that a main character has been added in the first two Rugrats movies.

  • Dil was the first of two Rugrats to debut in a Rugrats movie, the second being Kimi in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie.
  • As seen in All Grown Up!, Dil has red hair, taken from Didi's side, and is known for his unusual interests, including inventing, taken from Stu's side.
  • Dil is one in three of the main Rugrats characters to have the camera viewed from inside his mouth in All Grown Up!. The other two are his cousin, Angelica, and his pet dog, Spike .
  • In the All Grown Up! episode entitled Brothers Grimm, Dil is seen writing with his left hand, which would imply he is left handed, this would also imply Chuckie is not the only one who is left handed.
  • Dil believes in aliens, and doesn't think they're scary.
  • As said in All Growed Up, Dil was accidentally dropped on his head by Phil and Lil when he was a baby. It is also shown he does know about this.
  • In one All Grown Up! episode, it is said that Dil is 4 years younger than Tommy, this may be a continuity error, or the writers and directors forgot the Rugrats stayed the same age for over 3 years.
  • Though there was no episode, Dil was seen as a 1 year old in the All Grown Up! episode Truth or Consequences.
