Characters Present


Chuckie has a dream that he's a brave explorer riding a boat over a waterfall, and when he wakes up he realizes he has wet the bed. When the adults discuss the incident, Didi reassures Charles Sr. that Chuckie just had an accident and a "little backwards slide". When the Rugrats overhear this, Chuckie thinks he's growing backwards, especially after Chas makes him wear "training pants". Can the other Rugrats help Chuckie wake up dry? - Description from Klasky Csupo


Chuckie has a dream. In this dream he is flying in an aeroplane then when he lands a lion comes and Chuckie calls him Stinky Breath, then rows down a boat, but then down a waterfall and then when he wakes up he has accidentally wet the bed. Charles is worried he might be regressing but Didi is not, while Stu does the laundry. Chuckie, Tommy and the twins wonder if he is growing backwards into a baby baby and see if he wets the bed again but he is not tired. Then Charles gives him "big boy" training pants which the twins think are diapers and talk about how great they think diapers are. They discuss the dream and eventually think that if they don't do anything fun he won't dream and won't wet the bed, and Charles takes Chuckie to the fair. When he comes home the other babies try to keep Chuckie awake but first Chuckie, then the twins, then Dil, then Tommy go to sleep. The next morning everyone is happy because Chuckie is dry.
