Characters Present


Ben & Elaine, our newlyweds from "Let Them Eat Cake", babysit the Rugrats to get a feel for what parenting will be like. - Description from Klasky Csupo


Tommy's Uncle Ben and Aunt Elaine agree to watch the babies and Angelica while their parents spend an evening out, explaining they want to have practice taking care of kids before having one of their own. The babies are very difficult by running around and throwing food at Ben and Elaine, because Angelica tricked them that they intend to take one of the babies and keep him or her to themselves. Angelica agrees to help them in exchange for a trip to the Cynthia store, but the trip is cancelled when Charlotte decides to bring her home for a bath after the babies throw food at her to prevent Ben and Elaine from taking her away.
