Characters Present


Chuckie gets a new girlfriend named Megan who has a very unorthodox way of showing her affection... she teases him. How long will Chuckie put up with it? - Description from Klasky Csupo


An adorable and very beautiful new girl named Megan has moved into the neighborhood. She quickly befriends Tommy, Phil, and Lil. However, it appears that she has something against Chuckie when she goes out of her way to pick on him constantly. It is soon realized that both Megan and Chuckie are experiencing their first case of "puppy love".


  • Chuckie's eyes disappear various times during this episode. This could be an animation error or Chuckie blinking.
  • There is a restroom behind the bench Chuckie is on in the first scene. However, only a girls' bathroom is visible.
  • The trash can by the bench appears and disappears throughout the episode.


  • The episode's name is a reference to the 1987 movie Fatal Attraction starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close.
  • As a warning/reassurance to sensitive people, other episodes where they act out of character or feel strange is in "Bow Wow Wedding Vows", Spike and Fifi are less playful as Fifi is pregnant, Tommy pretends to be happy which is a bit weird and Stu and Didi are a bit lovestruck but all go back to normal, in "The Bravliest Baby", Tommy and Chuckie take turns pretending to be each other but decide to be themselves, a similar thing happens in "Twins Pique" when Phil wants to be like Chuckie and Lil wants to be like Angelica, in "Angelica for a Day", Chuckie and Angelica appear to have swapped personalities but it was all just a dream, in "He Saw, She Saw", Chuckie gets another friendship that appears like a crush as does Angelica in "Angelica's In Love", and in "Farewell, My Friend" and "Opposites Attract", Tommy and Chuckie temporarily stop being friends. Chuckie also complains of feeling a bit funny in the following episodes: "The Dreamtime", "Chuckie's First Haircut", "I Remember Melville", and "Chuckie vs The Potty".
