Angelica Charlotte Pickles is the main antagonist and secondary tritagonist of the series. While this is so, she acts more as an antihero in the films and often sides with the babies at the end against the films' respective main villains. She is voiced by Cheryl Chase in both Rugrats (the original and revival) and All Grown Up! and is among the series' original characters.

She is a spoiled brat and the cousin of Tommy and Dil Pickles. In 2002, TV Guide declared Angelica Pickles 7th in their list of Top 50 Greatest Cartoon Characters of All Time. She is the archenemy of Tommy Pickles and the other Rugrats. Her middle name is 'Charlotte', meaning she is named after her mother. She claims to be 'the prettiest, most beautiful kid in the universe'. Angelica carries her favorite doll Cynthia (a parody of the popular Barbie franchise) around with her almost everywhere and fills her room with Cynthia merchandise.


She's tempestuous. She's tyrannical. She's mean. She's three. Tommy's cousin Angelica is a Rugrats alumna who can talk both to grown-ups and toddlers. She manipulates her parents, shows off for strangers -- and when she comes to play, the Rugrats run for cover. "You dumb babies!" she bellows as she bullies them into playing by her rules. "You don't know anything!" she screams as she terrorizes them with "true" stories from her imagination. Even worse, she forces them to sit still for her off-key, lyrically mangled musical numbers. Beneath her cold, hard exterior beats the heart of a true spoiled brat. But however cleverly devilish her schemes, somehow Angelica always seems to get the worst of it. - Rugrats Description from Klasky Csupo

Angelica Pickles may not be as big a brat as she was when she was 3, but she still has a way of getting her cousins Tommy and Dil to do her bidding. She also has a great deal of influence over her pre-school pal Harold, who is more than eager to do whatever she asks him. Of course, her best friend, Susie Carmichael is not so easy to sway and is often a thorn in Angelica's side when it comes to her plans to manipulate situations to her advantage. Angelica has mellowed a bit, however. She is not above asking even Susie for advice in the realms of social climbing and has even tried her hand at being a mentor for a young child (to further her own interests, of course!) Angelica still has delusions of grandeur when it comes to her talent as a singer and manages to find ways to torture her fellow students with her off-key ballads. - All Grown Up! Description from Klasky Csupo. 


Angelica is the bratty daughter of Drew and Charlotte Pickles and the mean, rude, and ridiculously spoiled older cousin of Tommy and Dil Pickles. Angelica is often seen bullying and making fun of her cousins and their friends. Since she's older than the babies, who can only communicate with each other and Angelica, Angelica herself can communicate with the adults as well as the other Rugrats, which she uses to her advantage most of the time. When the character Susie Carmichael was introduced, she was soon favored among the babies, causing Angelica to start a rivalry with her. She'll say and/or do anything to get what she wants--however, Angelica's bratty behavior often gets the best of her, which results in the adults (usually her parents and/or her Aunt Didi and Uncle Stu) punishing her. Despite this, Angelica is quite the manipulator, often playing sweet and innocent in front of adults, only to reveal her true colors the second their backs are turned and she is not being watched. When caught, she likes to excuse her behavior by saying that nobody expects her to act like an angel. Indeed, much of her behavior emulates that of her mother, who is often abrasive and demanding to her fellow adults. Angelica's standard refrain in situations where she actually faces consequences for her actions is that "it's not fair," ignoring any possibility of actually taking responsibility and reforming. Angelica also often likes to blame any problem or commotion she created on the babies, even when it's patently obvious they could not have been responsible.

Cookies are Angelica's favorite food (just like Cookie Monster), and she refuses to eat most "healthy" foods (especially broccoli). Even though Angelica is often very mean to the babies, deep down, she likes them and loves her cousins.

Angelica is always referring to the babies as "just babies" and to herself as an adult, despite being only a year older than Chuckie and Kimi, two years older than Tommy and the twins, Phil DeVille and Lil, and only three years older than Dil--in fact, Dil's the only Rugrat who's technically "just a baby," as all the others are technically toddlers like Angelica and Susie are.

All Grown Up!

Angelica CAMPFIRE scan.jpg

In the spin-off series All Grown Up!, 13 year old Angelica's personality has clearly made some minor edits to itself as a part of her maturity and beauty; she goes after boys more often (in Rugrats, though, she was shown to have crushes on a few toddler boys), and has outgrown the habit of carrying Cynthia around with her all the time (although in one episode of All Grown Up!, Angelica desperately tries to get Cynthia back because Charlotte gives her away). She mostly loves fashion and would spend her time shopping at the mall. Still, a few parts of her former personality remain she's still very mean, spoiled, and bossy, but to a much lesser extent than she previously was. She and Susie are still rivals, but they're more like frenemies than actual enemies, although Angelica is obviously still very envious of Susie, mainly because of her being more talented than Angelica at most things (especially singing).

Angelica in All Grown Up!.



Angelica wears a sleeveless knee-length purple dress, a long-sleeved orange-red blouse with flared cuffs, blue and green polka-dotted tights, orange socks, and purple and white sneakers. She wore a diaper over her tights during Season 1. In Season 2 onwards, she wears frilly panties (since she is now potty-trained). She also has blonde hair which is worn in two pigtails tied with purple ribbons.

All Grown Up!

In Season 1, Angelica wears a long-sleeved lavender shirt, magenta and purple skirt, and violet shoes. She also wears a bright red sleeveless turtleneck sweater, purple skirt tied with a light cyan belt, dark purple slides (no socks), and wears a red heart-shaped barrette clipped on the right of her hair. She wears a wristwatch on her left wrist and 3 bracelets on her right wrist. She wears lavender eye shadows and silver hoop earrings.

In "Interview With a Campfire", she appears with a bright blue shirt, red pants, and brown sneakers.

In Seasons 2-5, she often wears a bright orange shirt, green/blue shorts, and violet sandals. Sometimes, she wears her usual trademark colors. Her hair is wavy (like Lil and Kimi) and wears a right-side swept bang clipped on the right with a silver square barrette. She wears 5 bracelets in different purple shades (3 on the left wrist and 2 on the right wrist). Her eye shadows and earrings are blue and red, respectively.

She also wears her hair in a variety of natural styles throughout the series.


Angelica has appeared in a lot of episodes in both Rugrats and All Grown Up!. Her first appearance is in "Tommy's First Birthday".


Tommy Pickles - Although Tommy's cousin Angelica is mean, a bully (sometimes) and is bossy, Tommy is never afraid to confront her. You could say Tommy and Angelica are frenemies because of their fighting and her anger issues, but in the last scene of the future before it turns back into Rugrats in "All Growed Up", Angelica and Tommy drop the enemies' part and become friends until she's back to her bratty spoiled younger self. They don't always see eye to eye, but they will do anything to help each other.

Dil Pickles - Although Angelica is still mean and often makes fun of Dil and vice versa, they still care about each other and are still closer with each other than both of them are with most of the others in the group. The two don't interact as much in AGU!; their most well-known interaction in this series is when she yells at him "GET OUT OF THE WAY FREAK, OR I'LL MOVE YOU OUT OF THE WAY!" but they still talk and get along (mostly), because of the lack of frequent interaction. When Angelica is in a really bad place Dil is the person, she goes to for advice, and he delivers in the episode "It's Karma, Dude!".

Chuckie Finster - Chuckie and Angelica can be pretty good friends despite her always teasing him and the others. Chuckie is the closest to her age (besides Susie and Harold). Angelica tries to help him when he likes one of her friends (Samantha Shane), and when she helps him become popular and everyone starts liking the new fake Chuckie more than her, he feels bad and gives it all up for her. Angelica is who the gang goes to help teach Chuckie to lie so he doesn't spoil the surprise party for Tommy.

Susie Carmichael - Susie is Angelica's closest friend, but they always look for ways to compete with each other. Susie always one-ups Angelica and sometimes makes bets on her failures and once makes fun of her acting behind her back to the rest of the gang in truth and consequents. But it never phases Angelica because she believes it's because she's jealous. In "Susie Goes Bad Lite", Susie gives into peer pressure and has to prove how 'bad' she was. Kimi and Lil had to go get Angelica so she could save Susie because she almost fell off a telephone company building and Angelica had to climb up there to talk some sense into Susie so that she wouldn't get hurt and Susie wouldn't listen and they fell, and if Lil and Kimi hadn't run after a police patrol car then Angelica and Susie would've been seriously injured or possibly dead.

Harold Frumpkin - Harold and Angelica are good friends, and she only realized that when he was gone (because he was playing hard to get). Harold is in love with Angelica and has been since they met. He acts as her slave and follows her around and hangs out with her. He will do anything for her and vice versa.

Kimi Finster - Kimi and Angelica aren't super close but are still friends. The two go to the mall together along with Lil and Susie. They both are fans of The Sulky Boys and Emica.

Lil DeVille - Lil and Angelica were never super close in the original series as Angelica was always taunting and teasing her and the other babies but in AGU! Angelica and Lil are a lot closer and the two have been shown shopping together (along with Susie and Kimi). The two also both are fans of The Sulky Boys and Emica and boys and clothes etc. It was shown in one episode of the original series that Lil really looks up to Angelica because she's brave and tough etc.

Phil DeVille - Angelica and Phil have never been the closest of friends, The two are often seen to make jokes at each other's expense. Phil is basically the only one of the kids to almost always talk back to her. Despite this the two are close, whether they want to be or not.


  • Rugrats co-creator, Arlene Klasky, did not approve of Angelica's cruelty in early seasons and often had disputes with the writers about it. In 1996, when new episodes were released, Klasky had a more positive reception to the somewhat softened Angelica, despite the fact that she still played the role as the antagonist of the series.
  • Angelica is the only Rugrat to remain an only child throughout the franchise.
  • One of the few times where Angelica's expressed a desire to have a sibling is in "The Stork" and the only time where she's genuinely saddened by the fact that she's an only is in "Sister Act". Every other time, Angelica usually expresses her thankfulness on being an only child.
    • However, restricting to biological brothers and sisters, Chuckie also has remained an only child. Kimi, on the other hand, has a half-sister who appeared in "Trading Places" (All Grown Up!).

One of Angelica's many appearances in the series.

  • Angelica is one in three of the main Rugrats characters to have the camera viewed from inside her mouth in All Grown Up!. The other two are Dil and Spike.
  • She hates coconuts, baked apples, broccoli (at age three), flan, and spinach.
  • In the life-size doll versions of Angelica, she is shown to have brown eyes. However, in the newspaper comic strip, she was revealed to have blue eyes.
  • In All Grown Up!, Angelica has been seen as a 4-5, 6, and 9-year-old.
  • Angelica has grown less mean towards the kids in All Grown Up!. This could possibly be attributed to the fact that after the babies grew up, they were able to tell their parents that Angelica was being mean.
  • Although she is not seen in the episode (due to being written out Chuck Cunningham-style in "Petition This!"), Angelica is mentioned by Tommy near the very end of "Golden Boy" (All Grown Up!).
  • Angelica and Susie are the only main characters to have their last appearance in 2007.
  • Angelica, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, and Tommy call the babies younger than Angelica "babies/toddlers/big babies/dumb babies" and Dil a "baby baby" because he can't walk or talk yet.
  • Angelica tells stories to scare the babies, claiming each story she tells are not true but false.
  • She wanted to be a teacher when she grew up, but after Miss Weemer told her that it was hard work, she changed her mind and Angelica said she wanted to be a singer or a movie star instead.
  • Several times throughout the original series, her singing is off-key and/or loud, but there are a few exceptions. She sings professionally in "Toyland", "Bad Girls", and her version of "Vacation" when she was a Rugrat. In "All Growed Up" and All Grown Up!, it is shown that Angelica's singing fared better than it was before, but she's better at singing in a group than as a soloist.
    • Despite her singing being off-key and/or loud at times, she can sing very high notes when she is a Rugrat. The highest note she ever hits as a Rugrat is around an F#6, her final singing note when she sings her own version of the National Anthem, also known as the Star Spangled Banner, in "All Growed Up".
