Elaine Kropotkin (born 1962) is a minor character of series Rugrats. She was first voiced by Tress MacNeille and then Meagen Fay in her second appearance.


Ben and Elaine are newlyweds, whose wedding the gang attended. They get their first debut in "Let Them Eat Cake", while Tommy and Chuckie are confused at all the commotion, Angelica explains the bride and "gloom" (meaning groom) are getting married. While neither understanding, Tommy sort of understands pointing out his Uncle Ben as a "gloom". Ben is mostly seen, very nervous about getting married. While he loves Elaine, he's still nervous and about the changes that will happen. Ben, like many other adults, is happy to see Angelica. He doesn't seem to know about her bad behavior and is overjoyed to have her as his flower girl for the wedding. Also, oddly enough, she behaves very well for him as his flower girl. He's shocked to find out that Elaine has suddenly disappeared and goes in a frantic search all over to find her. Tommy and Chuckie, on the other hand, both sneak away to find Ben and Elaine's wedding cake. While they go through a huge search for it, they stumble upon Elaine.

Although neither one knows who she is, only that she looks sad. There Elaine confesses to them that she loves Ben, but she finds marriage so final and wishes he wasn't sure of everything all the time. And wonders if he has any fears or doubts. Ben soon finds her, and after hearing she was scared, he quickly admits he's very scared but doesn't care because he loves Elaine. To which she happily says she loves him back, they kiss, much to Chuckie and Tommy's confusion. Ben happily notices them and asks "Did you guys find my bride for me?". Ben and Elaine are seen happily dancing as husband and wife.

He and Elaine are later seen in "Baby Maybe" when they try to see if they're ready for children by baby-sitting Tommy and the other babies. However because Angelica tricked them into behaving badly to make herself look good, Ben and Elaine are ultimately a bit skeptical about having children unless they're like Angelica.

Ben and Elaine were also seen attending Stu and Didi's wedding anniversary party in "The Family Tree".
