Rugrats comic strip

I found this while going through my huge Sunday comics collection. At the peak of its popularity Rugrats had a newspaper strip running from 1998 to 2003.

It wasn't unusual for a popular animated cartoon to gain a newspaper comic. Throughout history there were strips based on Felix the Cat, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Yogi Bear, Bullwinkle, Flintstones, He-Man, and even Dr. Katz (yes, that squiggly cartoon from Comedy Central).

But by the 1990s they became rarer and rarer. I believe "Rugrats" is the last of its kind.

No offense, Charles, but I'd always had not that much love for the show itself. Now, Ren and Stimpy, TAT would have been classic! Happy, Joy!
