Paul Gatsby is a cartoonist and creator of the popular TV show Dummi Bears. It is clear he enjoys Lucy Carmichael's cooking and has a friendly relationship with the Carmichael family. He almost instinctively rushes over whenever he hears Susie crying, wanting to keep her happy.

He is a caricature of former Rugrats creator Paul Germain.


Paul Gatsby is the creator of the fictional Dummi Bears children's empire. He is based on real-life Rugrats co-creator Paul Germain. Paul is a generally calm, but stern person. He likes Randy as a writer and his family in general, but he tires of Randy's repetitive writing material with plots. He's rejected a lot of his plots, though in his opinion they were all the same. Susie believed he liked their family so much that he'd buy them a new house every time he enjoyed dinner. However, what Paul most likely did for Randy was try to find new inspiration and write new material. He's a bit disturbed at how all of his neighbors overly enjoy the stupid cartoon and how Chas takes it a bit too seriously (calling it, with good reason, "mindless"). While he might enjoy how the Dummi Bears have become a success, he becomes increasingly annoyed with how the DeVille's trying to show their over enthusiasm for the show and Drew's attempt to become a business associate with him.


Paul is mostly a peach color. His hair is black (though the top is a toupee) and his beard is a blue-grey color. He wears a light purple shirt and a pair of clear glasses.


Paul Gatsby only appears in one episode of Rugrats, but is mentioned several times. His first true appearance was in Dummi Bear Dinner Disaster.
