Charlotte Pickles (born October 14, 1957) is Angelica's mother and the wife of Drew Pickles. Charlotte is strong-willed and assertive (much like her own daughter). She is a stern and caring mother, who works hard to balance her career with the interests of her family. She is frequently seen talking on her cell phone to Jonathan, her assistant, or another business client. She loves her daughter and wants her to be a strong, independent and accomplished woman like her when she grows older. Angelica deeply loves and respects her mother, wanting to be just like her when she grows up.

Description

Aside from being Drew's wife and Angelica's mom, Charlotte is also the CEO of a major corporation called Mega Corp, and works very hard. In the 2021 series, she is a politician, specifically a member of the city council. Charlotte spends much of her time on the phone or working and sometimes struggles to make time for her family, whom she loves deeply. While she spoils her daughter just like her husband, Charlotte's not nearly as much of a pushover as Drew is and is typically the more stern parent of the two, being capable of disciplining their daughter without hesitating to do so.

All Grown Up!

Charlotte Pickles has aged a bit in the 10 years since their "darling little angel" Angelica was just a 3-year-old girl. Charlotte had cosmetic surgery, which is proved in "Interview With a Campfire", as she is seen with many different bandages on her face. She's been the C.E.O. (Chief Executive Officer) of Mega Corporation until Season 4, which she loses her seat by her ex-assistant Jonathan Kraskell (in All Grown Up!, he seemed to be a C.E.O. too like Charlotte). After losing her job, she had been going crazy until she found out Dil's game is "impatience". Inglorious, she tried to help Dil but didn't know that she had been aggressive.

Looks

Rugrats

Charlotte has peach skin and a pair of white eyes with black pupils. She usually has purple eyeshadow and red lipstick, blonde hair in a ponytail, and wears a dark blue scrunchy, red earrings, and a blue business suit with shoulder pads and matching high-heels. In several Season 3 episodes, she has hot pink lipstick and wears accessories of the same color. In digitally-animated episodes, she usually has dark pink lipstick on.

In the 2021 series, she has dirty blonde eyebrows with her mouth in the center. She wears the same eyeshadow and dark pink lipstick, as well as blue earrings that does not cover her ears. She also wears a blue striped outfit with magenta shirt and black high heels. Her darker scrunchy is replaced with a regular hair tie. Her nails are painted neon pink, and she wears two golden rings on her left hand and a diamond ring on her right hand.

All Grown Up!

In All Grown Up!, Charlotte has gotten some obvious plastic surgery or Botox, pulling her face into a permanent smile. The plastic surgery does little in making her look younger, and in fact, does the opposite. She has blonde hair in a ponytail like before, red diamond earrings, and wears lipstick. She wears a red business suit with a white shirt, and wears blue high-heels. In Season 2, Charlotte looks like the other characters, as she's a bit different and more beautiful than what she looks like in Season 1. In some episodes, she appears with a blue and light blue business suit and wears gold and diamond earrings.

Trivia

  • Charlotte and Howard are the only adults who're called primarily by their full first names instead of a nickname -- although Howard's wife, Betty, sometimes calls them Charlotte "Char" and Howard "Howie".
  • In All Grown Up!, we don't see Charlotte talking on the phone nearly as much.
  • In the Rugrats episode "Angelica's Birthday", it's revealed that Angelica's maternal grandmother (Charlotte's mother) is still alive, and that she sent Angelica a birthday card and present. Neither of Charlotte's parents make an appearance in the franchise, and it's unknown if Charlotte's father is still alive. It's also unknown if Charlotte has any siblings of her own (or if she's an only child like her daughter is).
  • Charlotte and Drew's lawyer is Mr. Hershowitz, as seen in "Pickles vs. Pickles".
  • Charlotte's seen as a baby in "Jonathan Babysits".
  • Charlotte is shown to have 3 different vehicles throughout the series; a blue 1991 Toyota Previa minivan, a red BMW 3-series E30 convertible, and a green BMW 5-series E34 sedan. The red convertible, which resembles Angelica's ride-on toy, can be seen in "Mommy's Little Assets". It is possible that she traded the red BMW for the green one at some point. Charlotte definitely has the money to buy a new BMW every few years. The license plate on Charlotte's minivan says "CEO-2," in reference to her position at Mega Corp.
    • Charlotte has a real BMW convertible that resembles Angelica's small but realistic ride-on toy.
  • In "Chuckie's a Lefty", Charlotte states that "the only one who can't drive a stick shift is Didi," indicating that she can drive a manual transmission vehicle.
  • Charlotte and Drew went to Hawaii for their honeymoon.
  • Charlotte was Cleopatra in "Be My Valentine".
  • Charlotte gives a speech at the Moon Goddess Festival in "Daddy's Little Helpers".
  • Charlotte thinks that Angelica's first steps were because she wanted to hug her mother, but the truth is that Angelica walked because she saw a cookie in "A Step At A Time".
  • Charlotte isn't from the countryside, as revealed in "The Perfect Twins".
  • Charlotte got a promotion and changed her hairstyle in "Babies In Toyland".
  • Charlotte makes her first public appearance after her cosmetic surgery in "Brother, Can You Spare the Time?".
  • Charlotte owns Yu-Gotta-Go cards, as seen in "Yu-Gotta-Go".
  • Charlotte makes another appearance with different clothes and a light blue business suit in "It's Karma, Dude!".
  • During her tenure as CEO of Mega Corp, Charlotte (in "Lost at Sea") mentions that she knows of all the unethical and shady business deals that lead to murders. Leading her to say, "I know where all the bodies are buried".
  • In almost all of her appearances, she has her cellphone with her and says "Jonathan" at least once.
  • In "Angelica's Worst Nightmare", she and Drew got really excited when they thought that Charlotte was pregnant again, so it's possible they may have wanted to have more kids besides Angelica.
    • However, by the end of the episode, their doctor told them that Charlotte wasn't actually pregnant. There are a few theories as to why Charlotte wasn't pregnant:
      • Assuming that she really was pregnant, Charlotte probably had a miscarriage, or, at the very least, a chemical pregnancy (which is a very early miscarriage that happens before anything can be seen on an ultrasound).
      • Assuming that she was never pregnant in the first place --
        • Charlotte could've gotten her period (since women don't have periods when their pregnant).
        • She could've had a hysterical pregnancy, which is where a woman exhibits pregnancy-like symptoms when she isn't actually pregnant. It's more common in animals than in humans, and in humans, it tends to be more psychological than physical.
        • She could've misread and/or done her pregnancy incorrectly, which resulted in a false-positive, or she could've simply realized that even when done correctly, at-home pregnancy tests aren't always accurate when it comes to predicting if a woman is pregnant (after all, Charlotte did say she was going to the doctor to have an "official" pregnancy test done).
  • In "Chuckie vs. The Potty," Angelica claims that Charlotte would turn the faucet on and off urge her daughter's need to use the toilet.
  • It is revealed that Charlotte can speak two different languages: Japanese (as revealed in "Let Them Eat Cake") and Chinese (as revealed in "Angelica's Birthday").
  • Drew and Charlotte have the smallest age difference among the intact married couples, their birthdays (May 25 for Drew and October 14 for Charlotte) being 142 days apart. Actually, Chas and Melinda had an even smaller age difference by two days, but Melinda's deceased.
  • In the original series, she is one of the only female characters with ears being unseen, as they are covered by her earrings. The other female character with ears being unseen is Didi.
