Why Their Shows Rock
- They produced great shows like The Tracey Ullman Show (opening, Dr. N!Godatu), The Simpsons (the first 3 seasons), Rugrats, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Duckman, Santo Bugito, The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power, As Told by Ginger and All Grown Up!.
- The animation in their shows is good and it improves as time went on.
- The animation is at its best in the movies, as it looks stunning and beautiful, even for 1990s and 2000s standards.
- Their latest CGI-animation in the 2021 Rugrats reboot is also pretty good, and shows that the studio is evolving from 2D to 3D very smoothly.
- They also have good comedy in their shows, like with the Rugrats silly and fun adventures.
- The voice acting in the shows are great.
- Each show has great theme songs.
- There are good jokes and humor in their shows, especially The Simpsons.
- They cast talented voice actors like E.G. Daily, the late Christine Cavanaugh, Kath Soucie, Tara Strong, Lacey Chabert, Tom Kane, Tim Curry, Joseph Ashton, Shayna Fox, John Kassir, Melissa Disney, Liz Georges, Kenny Blank, and more.
- Each show has some memorable moments.
- The graffiti and rooster logos, while both loud and silly, are their most decent logos at best.
- They did give some spotlight by having their mascot, Splaat, star in his own YouTube series, RoboSplaat! and Dear Splaat, which are both decent and give Splaat more of a characterization about who he is.
- They made great movies based on both Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys, which are The Rugrats Movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, and The Wild Thornberrys Movie.
- The studio came back strong with a 2021 reboot of Rugrats, which is a good reboot of the original show, with the above mention CGI-animation being good, and having most of the same elements that made the original great.
- A few bad shows, such as The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald, the miniseries Rugrats Pre-School Daze and Stressed Eric.
- Rugrats Go Wild and Immigrants are considered their weakest films.
- The studio’s main logo, Splaat (formerly known as the Robot logo), is a pretty horrifying logo. Even after Splaat was given good characterization and decent looking arms and legs, his face is still pretty horrifying.
- The animation is sometimes poor, examples being the above mentioned Stressed Eric (mainly in season 2, given that they had no involvement in that season), as well as the first season of both The Simpsons and Rugrats.
- The animation in the Rugrats 2021 CG-animated reboot (while decent), can be uncanny and the backgrounds of it can be dark at the times.
- Some of the designs on the characters are a bit weird and ugly, with the As Told by Ginger characters being the worst offender.
- Some of their good shows still have some bad episodes, such as:
