    Angelica Charlotte Pickles is the main antagonist and secondary tritagonist of the Nickelodeon series Rugrats. While this is so, she acts more as an anti-hero in the films and often sides with the babies at the end against the films' respective main villains. She is voiced by Cheryl Chase, both in the original and reboot series, and she is among the series' original characters.

    Intentional Spoiled Qualities

    Note: This page will only focus on her original series counterpart.

    1. Despite her purpose of being unlikable, Angelica's unlikability in the series will most likely not be the type where you can still enjoy the character despite not being likable to the other characters. Her unlikability gets very frustrating and annoying too.
    2. She is a whiny, spoiled brat and toxic control freak who wants to forcefully make everyone get what she wants without thinking of others.
    3. She's just a stereotype of one of those mean girls, but not the good kind.
    4. She's tempestuous, tyrannical, and very mean towards everyone around her, with her mainly bullying everyone for no reason whatsoever, and there are episodes where she is arguably at her worst.
    5. In the infamous episode "Trading Phil", she forced Phil to play with Kayla and Marli so she can hang out with the cool kids. Not to mention, Kayla and Marli were very unlikable.
    6. She is very manipulative and spoiled too, as she often manipulates her parents into getting whatever she wants.
    7. Whenever she gets a chance for something that will satisfy her, she does all her wickedness to be sure that she gets it.
    8. She's cruel towards many kids, especially to her cousins Tommy and Dil, Susie, and the rest of the babies for seemingly no reason other than the fact that the writers wanted it to happen at all; it doesn't make that much sense considering the fact it is never given a reason other than that fact as to why she bullies them all the time.
    9. Her voice, while good, can be very grating at times, especially when she yells or sings.
    10. Her obsession with cookies and dislike of healthy foods can cause mischief at times.
    11. Everything that Angelica encourages kids, in reality, to learn from is bad. Like sweet talking, getting your way, trying to get other people in trouble, stealing food, bullying others, throwing a temper tantrum as an excuse to get out of punishment, causing destruction over food, and running away, making her an awful role model.
    12. She can also be a Butt-Monkey at times where she has to deal with the babies stupidity and crying although she usually deserves it for being mean to them.
    13. Although she was likable in The Rugrats Movie, there was one part where she boasted to Tommy that Dil would replace him after he was born by making up a dark story-type theory. Which nearly caused Tommy to get Dil killed by choking on baby food.

    Intentional Good Qualities

    1. She has a cute design, like many of the other Rugrats characters.
    2. Cheryl Chase does a pretty good job voicing her. It's just her singing and yelling will most likely get on your nerves.
    3. She does have a few funny moments, like when she ate cookies that were in the soap and bubbles come out of her mouth, and when she fell into a mud puddle while serving the Rugrats and Susie at their little party.
    4. Unlike Peppa Pig, she often gets her comeuppance for her bad actions where she ends up getting punished for what she did, so you can argue that she's not a Karma Houdini in the slightest.
      • In "The Trial", when Angelica openly and loudly gloats to Tommy that she was the one who broke his lamp, Didi and Betty overhear this and they punish Angelica by strapping her in Tommy's highchair in the kitchen until her father arrives to pick her up.
      • Towards the end of "Chuckie's Wonderful Life", her father Drew finds out that Angelica had stolen Chas' favorite Latvian folk dance CD after catching her throwing it around her room and angrily dragged her to Chas' house to return the CD and make her apologize before he punishes her with no dessert for a whole week.
      • Sometimes, the comeuppances Angelica receives can go too far. In “The Word Of The Day”, Angelica gets blames at full fault for using profanity even though she learned a swear word from her favorite TV show host and her mother put her in that position due to leaving her unsupervised for a phone call. In “Silent Angelica” she tries to be on her best behavior under a promise of a toy but the babies take advantage of this to torment her until she snaps and loses the privilege.
    5. Though rarely, she can feel some remorse for her actions at times and there are even moments where she apologizes for her irresponsible actions.
    6. She does care for her friends and family deep down, as she loves her parents dearly, shows she loves the babies, has respected Susie and Harold at times to be their friends, and will do the right thing at times to help them.
    7. She has gotten some character growth that can make her likable sometimes, such as in the movies, where she helps save the babies during their adventures. In Rugrats in Paris in particular, where she is at her absolute best, it is especially shown in the scene where she felt bad for Chuckie being motherless and when she exposed Coco's plan to the adults, she also became more tolerable in the Rugrats reboot.
    8. Regarding IDQ#1, she was pretty much meant to be hated for her unlikable status.
    9. Despite the flaws the Rugrats franchise would not be great as it is without her since since she is the main antagonist and secondary tritagonist of the show.
    10. She redeems herself in the movies and spin-off All Grown Up!, where she became nicer, mature, and more likable.
    11. She certainly isn't as spoiled as the babies are, even if she is no better than them.
    12. Her 4th wall breaking in the 2nd teaser for The Rugrats Movie, while out of nowhere, was pretty clever.

    Trivia

    • In 2002, Angelica Pickles was ranked #7 in TV Guide's Top 50 Greatest Cartoon Characters list, which also included SpongeBob SquarePants at #9 and Ren and Stimpy at #31. SpongeBob was notably the most recently created character to be featured on the list at the time of its publication.
