Coco LaBouche is the main antagonist of the Rugrats film, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. She is the cold-hearted, child-hating head of EuroReptarland wishing to be head of the company. Her employer tells her that she must learn to love children first, to which she lies by saying she's engaged. She tries to get Chas Finster to love her and marry her just so she can get promoted to president. This sets the climax of the movie.
Coco LaBouche runs the amusement park EuroReptarland, a Japanese theme park located in Paris, France. Coco is first seen ordering her assistant, Kira Watanabe, to fly the designer of their massive robotic Reptar out to Paris so it can be repaired immediately, as its head flew off.
Not long after the arrival of Stu, the designer, with his family and friends, Coco has a video call with her boss, expressing her desire to be the head of the Reptar franchise. Mr. Yamaguchi, her boss, tells her that she's one of the many people being considered for the job. He also tells her that most importantly, that his successor has to love children to be able to do the job, as children are the main audience for the Reptar franchise. Coco lies to him by saying that she's engaged to a man with a child, but rather than name Coco as his successor immediately, Mr. Yamaguchi tells her that they'll talk about the promotion after the wedding occurs.
Coco and her assistant, Jean-Claude, try to quickly figure out how and where they're going to find a single man with a child. However, they discover Angelica hiding in her office instead. Angelica, wanting to avoid Coco's fury, tells her about Chas and his son, Chuckie, since Chas is looking to finally date someone seriously. Coco uses the opportunity to pretend to fall in love with Chas, while continuously impressing him as much as possible. To pull it off, she forces Kira, who has a crush on Chas, to help her (although she's unaware of Coco's real motives).
Coco learns from Angelica that, although Chas is very much smitten with her, Chuckie doesn't like her at all, and wishes for his new mommy to be the princess character who befriends Reptar. Coco resolves this by swiftly sneaking onto the stage to snatch the original actress playing the princess from the set and steal her place when Chas and Chuckie attend the show. While singing "Reptar I Love You" she hides her face behind a hand fan and sings directly to Chuckie as he approaches her thinking she's the princess and kindly shares his Teddy bear Wawa with her. However, when he reaches Coco, she throws the hand fan aside revealing her face and grabs Wawa in Chuckie's hands, though, Chuckie, Dil, and Kira are apparently the only ones who recognize her and everyone else cheers. Afterward, Chas officially agrees to marry Coco.
The following day later, on the morning of the wedding, Coco forcefully yanks Chuckie's Teddy bear out of his hands. The wicked Coco LaBouche then orders Jean-Claude to lock the babies, along with Angelica, in the warehouse storing the robotic Reptar, despite their being part of the wedding, as she doesn't want them there to ruin it. Coco then orders a horrified Kira to throw out Wawa before slamming out of the room, revealing her true colors. On their way to the Cathedral, Kira confronts Coco about deceiving Chas. Coco fires her on the spot and kicks Kira out of the limo, going to Notre Dame alone.
During the wedding, Chuckie has enough time to arrive because Chas spends an entire hour reciting what he believes to be their favorite poem. The wedding itself proves to be quite dreadful as Coco loses her patience and forces the ceremony forward, rushing the Archbishop until she completely loses her temper and tosses the Bible at him. However, Chuckie barges in through the door, halting the ceremony. Coco pretends to be happy to see Chuckie and tries to hug him, but he refuses and embraces his father. But moments later, Jean-Claude bursts in and accidentally reveals by announcing that she had locked the babies up to prevent them from coming as their plot had failed.
Coco tries to tell Chas to ignore him, calling him an "unemployed fool". Chas, finally seeing the evil liar Coco truly is, angrily calls the wedding off. Then, Angelica attempts to tell the grown-ups about Coco's plan, who promptly hushes Angelica. However, Mr. Yamaguchi suddenly appears in attendance, revealing he had been witnessing the entire ceremony and asked Angelica to tell them about what Coco was trying to do. Angelica then reveals Coco's wicked scheme to marry Chas and convinces him for promotion to take control of the entire Reptar franchise by doing so. Yamaguchi, enraged by Coco's deceit and treachery, fires Coco from her spot before leaving the church.
Coco attempts to storm out of Notre Dame, but is stopped by the babies standing on her dress. Furious, Coco knocks them down in front of everybody, to their shock. An outraged Angelica declares that only she is allowed to pick on the babies. Before Coco leaves Notre Dame in a huff, Angelica steps on Coco's wedding dress as she's walking out, causing it to rip, revealing her lingerie in front of everyone, including tourists with cameras who take lots of photos of her exposed lingerie, much to her anger and humiliation. Coco runs off, sobbing in defeat, followed by Jean-Claude who was getting attacked by Spike.
It is unknown what happens to Coco after her defeat. She and Jean-Claude apparently didn't get arrested for their crimes, as they should have. Either she working at Ooey Gooey World in EuroReptarland, working at the Perfume P.U (Parfum de P.U) where she tests deodorizers on people with smelly armpits and smelly, feet or she is doing both. Both are unlikely, as she was fired by Mr. Yamaguchi, which would mean she wouldn't be able to get a job through all of EuroReptarland, which is more likely than she working at the Parfum de P.U.
Coco has almond skin and a pair of white eyes with black pupils. She always wears a pair of triangle-shaped earrings (somewhat similar to the pair that Didi usually wears) that double as a communicator and wears a purplish lipstick with purple eyeshadow.
She is often seen wearing extremely extravagant and flamboyant outfits, regardless of the situation. When she speaks with Stu and Mr. Yamaguchi, her dress is red with a big green zipper on the front, and she wears a pair of big green platform heels with clocks on them. Another time, during her date with Mr. Finster, she wears a strange purple turban and a dress with pointed shoulders, flared sleeves, and a pair of purple platform shoes.
She has brown hair but sometimes wears a purple wig.
Coco LaBouche is a very wicked, ill-tempered, heartless, child-hating, loud, mean, cold-hearted, hateful, evil, and cruel woman. She will lie, seduce, and deceive anyone to get what she wants.
Coco has only appeared in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie and hasn't appeared in the Rugrats TV series ever since, mostly due to the fact that she lives in Paris, France and that Rugrats in Paris: The Movie was the only time the babies and their parents are seen traveling to Paris.
However, Coco was briefly mentioned in the episode "Finsterella" by Kira while she was rehearsing her lines as Cinderella's stepmother. She has been mentioned again in "Back to School," where Chuckie says her as the "smelly French woman."
- Coco LaBouche is voiced by Susan Sarandon, which is her first and only G-rated film she ever rolled in.
- The scene where Angelica steps on Coco's wedding dress, revealing her panties, stockings, and garter belt in front of everybody (including people with cameras) is similar to the scene in It Takes Two, where the real Alyssa Calloway (having been pretending to be Amanda Lemmon) steps on Clarice Kensington's wedding dress (as she is storming out of the church, embarrassed). Clarice Kensington, the main antagonist of It Takes Two, shares several similarities with Coco, including being a child-hater and a gold-digger.
- Her characterization is similar to Cruella de Vil from Disney's 1961 animated movie, One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
- Coco's last name comes from "la bouche", meaning "the mouth" in French.
