Paramount+ Purges 10 Children’s Shows, Including Rugrats Reboot — What Else Is on the Chopping Block?

Nickelodeon/Paramount+
Paramount+ has removed 10 kid-friendly series from its library, including a pair of streaming originals: The CG-animated Rugrats reboot and Big Nate — neither of which has been formally cancelled as of press time.

The great streaming purge has come for children’s TV.

The purge also includes Are You Afraid of the Dark? (2019-2022), Blue’s Clues & You! (2019-), It’s Pony (2020-2022), Middlemost Post (2021-2022), Ollie’s Pack (2020), Ryan’s Mystery Playdate (2019-2023), Santiago of the Seas (2020) and the recently cancelled That Girl Lay Lay (2021-2024).

The new Rugrats debuted in 2021, and followed the “even bigger adventures born from the colorful imaginations of Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica,” according to the official logline. Original series voice actors E.G. Daily (Tommy), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie), Cheryl Chase (Angelica), Cree Summer (Susie) and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil) all reprised their roles. New cast additions included Veep trio Tony Hale (Chas Finster), Anna Chlumsky (Charlotte Pickles) and Timothy Simons (Drew Pickles).

Additional franchise newbies included Ashley Rae Spillers (Vice Principals) as Tommy’s mother Didi; Tommy Dewey (Casual) as Tommy’s father Stu; Natalie Morales (Grey’s Anatomy) as Phil and Lil’s mother Betty; Nicole Byer (Nailed It!) as Susie’s mother Lucy; Omar Miller (The Unicorn) as Susie’s father Randy; and Michael McKean (Better Call Saul) as Grandpa Lou Pickles, an active senior who enjoys yoga.

Big Nate, meanwhile, followed a precocious 11-year-old boy named Nate and his best friends as they navigated sixth grade “with humor and style.”

Both Rugrats and Big Nate produced two seasons for Paramount+.

This isn’t the first time that children’s programming has been impacted by a content purge: Paramount+ previously scrubbed live-action Fairly OddParents reboot The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder from existence.
