Rugrats Theory Song Is A Glimpse Into Angelica’s Twisted Mind

Rugrats Theory Angelica Crazy StoryIf you’re subscribed to the stories on this blog you probably remember the disturbing but interesting story of The Rugrats Theory.

Basically the theory said that the cartoon Rugrats was based on the true story of a girl named Angelica. She couldn’t cope with the tragedies that were happening in her life (like how Chuckie died, and her mother left the family and never came back), so she went crazy, creating an imaginary world to deal with everything.

I dug into the history of Rugrats and found out that there was actually a true story behind the show, which wasn’t quite what The Rugrats Theory said. However, The Rugrats Theory still sticks in the mind of people who read it due to the haunting image of an insane Angelica.

What most people who’ve read The Rugrats Theory don’t know though is that there’s a song based on it that goes even deeper into the story. The song is usually referred to as ‘Vocaloid Rugrats Rugrats Vocaloid Song AngelicaTheory’. It was originally uploaded in English, but now for some mysterious reason only a version where Angelica sings in Japanese remains.

Luckily there are English lyrics in the video that tell us what she’s singing, and throughout the song you can hear her as she tries and fails to cope with the tragedies of her life.

In the beginning of the song the story starts off with Angelica having a hard time dealing with the loss of those she loves. We can’t quite tell at this point if she’s talking to herself or someone else:

I think the world is so wonderful
(The world is wonderful)
And we only have one chance to be here
So tell me why you’re hurting yourself

I guess I just do not understand
(What’s the meaning of life?)
Everything I’ve been told I believe
And yet people that I love just leave

Then when she sings another part it’s revealed who she is really talking to: her doll Cynthia.

I know you said that you’re not lying
(And well maybe that’s true)
So I’ll push away any doubt I have
Angelica Pickles Cynthia Doll RugratsBecause I Know you will tell the truth

(Right, Cynthia?)

In The Rugrats Theory story Angelica has modified her doll Cynthia to look and “act” just like the mother that abandoned her, as a replacement. In the Vocaloid Rugrats Theory song the story is taken even further and it has Angelica and Cynthia ruling together like queens over her imaginary world:

Welcome to my perfect world, according to Angelica
It’s my turn to run the show
Next to Cynthia Cynthia

With Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil,
I’ll never feel alone
So we can play games all day long,
While the earth is spinning

Round and round and round and round and round and
While the earth is spinning

But things go wrong and cracks start to show in her perfect world:

They just have to listen to me and do what I tell them,
Why why why why why why?
Why won’t they listen?

Everyone’s whispering about me
(What are they talking about?)
Do you think I did something wrong again?
Well I promise you, it wasn’t me

Angelica’s imaginary world and the real world begin to collide as her disturbed actions get noticed by those around her. Then the worst happens, Cynthia abandons her:

Where did you go? When I needed you? (I needed you)
I’m left all alone
and I need to start it over now

Can’t you hear me scream?

I can’t hold it in. (Not anymore)

Who am I again?

The end of the song has her spiraling into madness, and ends with her saying “Now my world is perfect” over and over.

Okay this song is downright spooky, check out the video:

I like this Japanese version because to me as an English speaking person it makes it more mysterious to hear her singing, since I can’t directly understand the words. I can easier imagine looking at this insane little girl chattering strangely to herself while playing with dolls and living in a twisted world that I can’t see.

But what do you think? Is the Vocaloid Rugrats Theory an interesting dive into the story of The Rugrats Theory, or is it too realistic and haunting?

Angelica Was Real! Urban Legend And The True Story Behind The Rugrats

Picture of Angelica Pickles the bully from the Rugrats cartoon on Nick.I think it’s safe to say that as one of most popular kid’s shows of all time the Rugrats cartoon was a big part of many people’s childhood.

The adventures that the Rugrats babies got into, usually at the instigation of Angelica the bully, was played every day on Nickelodeon and people loved it.

But I gotta admit that I never thought about what the story behind the Rugrats could be until I got an email the other day from a reader named Jessica G. who asked:

Do you know whether the story about the Truth Behind The Rugrats is true or not?

I’ve read a few stories but they’re pretty much the same. I don’t want to believe that it’s true because I loved the Rugrats as I was growing up. Please enlighten me.

What story could this be? I hadn’t heard anything so I set out to do some research, what I found out was pretty shocking


It turns out that there’s a huge story that’s been going around about the real kids behind the Rugrats. Or actually, the story Angelica Pickles of the Rugrats having hallucinations of the babies that she made up due to stress.says only one child, Angelica, is real and the other kids are figments of her tormented imagination.

The story is called The Rugrats Theory:

The Rugrats were really a figment of Angelica’s imagination.

Chuckie died a long time ago along with his mother, that’s why Chaz is such a nervous wreck all the time.

Tommy was stillborn and his dad Stu is in constant denial about it. So that’s why Stu is always in the basement making toys for the son who never had a chance to live.

The DeVilles had an abortion. Angelica couldn’t figure out whether it would have been a boy or a girl so she just made them twins named Phil and Lil.

The Cynthia doll that Angelica Pickles on Rugrats always carried around with her.The Rugrats Theory goes on like that, explaining things like how Angelica made her doll Cynthia look and act like her real mother, who one day just up and left the family and eventually got replaced by a very busy stepmother.

And how as she grew up she couldn’t handle all the tragedies that were happening around her so she fell deeper and deeper into her imaginary world as a way of not losing her mind. But it was already too late and she developed full blown multiple-personality disorder.

The Rugrats Theory is a pretty intense story and has become huge on Tumblr and Facebook, usually causing people who read the story to say “You’ve just ruined my childhood!” and that kind of thing.

I looked into it though and I’m happy to report that the story is an urban legend. Well…except for one thing, Angelica actually was a real girl.


Picture of Angelica holding Tommy and Chuckie from the show Rugrats on Nick.Turns out that as a kid the real Angelica used to bully a guy named Paul Germain, the person who came up with the idea for the Rugrats.

She bullied him so much that he never forgot about her and when the Rugrats show needed a character to mix things up he put her in as the villain.

Some of the other people who worked on the show weren’t happy with Angelica being so real though, they thought that she should be nicer on the show and not say things like “You dumb babies!” all the time or do stuff like throw Tommy’s ball over the backyard fence.

But the guy who was bullied by the real Angelica fought hard to keep her character on the show more realistic. He thought that kids would understand what a real bully was like and benefit from seeing the reasons behind why she might be acting like that (like her parents being too busy to pay attention to her and spoiling Picture of all the Rugrats kids together featuring Tommy and Angelica.her with toys instead).

Personally I think it’s kind of ironic that the guy who was bullied by Angelica in real life ended up fighting for her to be in the show. But I’m glad he did.

Even though she was a bully her actions were often the fuel for the the show and kept the other kids working together in their adventures. The Rugrats wouldn’t have been the same without her, don’t you think?
