Phillip Richard William DeVille is a main character in both Rugrats and its spin off series, All Grown Up!, appearing in most episodes of both series. He is the first tritagonist of the series. Phil is one of Tommy's friends, and is very close with his twin sister, Lil, although the two of them often bicker with each other. He is a minor protagonist in the series.

Description

The next door neighbor to Tommy is a twin who, along with his sister Lil, loves to cook up mud-pies filled with worms, bugs and other slimy creatures he finds in the backyard. Phil DeVille is close to his sister, but that doesn't stop him from constantly getting into arguments with her. He loves to go on adventures with the other Rugrats, and the messier and the scarier, the better. He comes armed with a diaper filled with moldy things he finds under sofas and beds, as well as dry wit and funny quip for every situation the babies get themselves into. - Rugrats Description from Klasky Csupo

Phil DeVille has grown in many ways independent of his sister. When they were babies, each of the twins wore the same outfits, and it wasn't very easy to tell them apart. Now Phil and Lil dress differently, act differently and have different friends. Still, some things are the same. Phil is still into being gross and is still great friends with Tommy and Chuckie. Although he doesn't share a room with Lil anymore, she is still his twin, and both of them continue to have adventures together. - All Grown Up! Description from Klasky Csupo

Summary

Phil and Lil are adorable twins who are alike in almost every possible way, and are even dressed to match: both wear pink and black pin-stripe shirts and turquoise outfits (Phil's being a shirt and Lil's being overalls) with a handkerchief on the left side and a duck on the right, and both have a small amount of brown hair on top of their oddly-shaped heads. Phil wears blue shoes and shorts and is drawn (for the most part). Phil is younger than Lil by two minutes. Phil and Lil once played with soda and ketchup and mustard dispensers at the movie theater. They also share the same interests: playing in the mud, and consuming worms (which they have often called "Chocolate Spaghetti"), bugs and toilet water. They often use their full first names, Phillip and Lillian, against one another when arguing. Their parents, Betty and Howard, often confuse the two (especially if Lil is not wearing her bow, or if Phil wears the bow instead) despite permanent differences, like the ears, as well as (of course) their genders.

Looks

Phil's skin is mostly peach and he has a block/football shaped head, a few teeth. He wears a pink undershirt with black pinstripes, a turquoise overall dress (with a handkerchief on the left side and a duck on the right), white ankle length/high socks, a pair of blue hi-top sneakers, and baby blue long shorts.

In Rugrats Go Wild, Phil wears a green sailor shirt in a similar design as his overall dress, a white undershirt with a blue stripe, and a white sailor hat. Years later, his hair gets longer. His outfits vary throughout the All Grown Up! series, but he usually wears a red or white jacket, an undershirt of varying colors, blue jeans, and red sneakers. Sometimes, he wears a blue polo and yellow sweater combination. In "All Growed Up", he wore an unbuttoned, pink short-sleeved dress shirt, a green undershirt with a yellow duck on it, dark green cargo pants, and blue sneakers.

In the first season of All Grown Up!, his dress shirt is orange, and his undershirt is blue. He keeps his green cargo pants, but his shoes are black. In "Thief Encounter", his pajamas are matching green and white pajama shirt and shorts with the number 0 on it. In the All Grown Up! episode "Truth or Consequences", Phil was seen as a 3 year old; he wore a green shirt with a duck on it, pink undershirt with black pinstripes, baby blue long shorts with pockets, high ankle length socks, blue sneakers and his strands of hair had started growing out.

Appearances

Phil appears in most episodes of Rugrats and All Grown Up!, although he and his sister made fewer appearances in the last few seasons of Rugrats. He and Lil are absent from 59 episodes of Rugrats. His first appearance was in "Tommy Pickles and the Great White Thing".

Relationships

Lil DeVille - Throughout the course of Rugrats, despite getting into fights quite often, Phil and his twin sister, Lil, have been inseparable and care an awful lot for each other. They do everything together, they dress alike and can't stand being apart. In All Grown Up!, however, Lil sometimes wants her space from Phil as seen in "Coup DeVille", they no longer wear the same matching clothes and Lil seems to no longer like and do things that are considered "gross". As the twins still often fight, their biggest fights in the All Grown Up! series are in three episodes: "Coup DeVille", where Lil gets tired of being around Phil and wants to be treated like her own person, "A DeVille House Divided", where Phil gets angry at Lil for breaking him and his new girlfriend up, and "Separate But Equal", where they want separate birthday parties due to Phil accidentally walking in on Lil while she was only in her training bra. It is also revealed that Phil is very protective over Lil, as he is seen chasing a neighborhood boy off when he "complimented" Lil's shirt.

Tommy Pickles - Along with Lil, Phil has always been friends with Tommy every since they were babies and often goes on imaginary adventures. They seem to still be good friends in All Grown Up! where they and Chuckie sometimes discuss girls they find "hot".

Chuckie Finster - Like Tommy, Phil has always been friends with Chuckie ever since their baby days. Despite being friends, Phil sometimes finds Chuckie's constant fear of everything a bit annoying. As seen in All Grown Up!, they remain very good friends.

Kimi Finster - Like the others, Phil does not meet Kimi until Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. They seem good friends despite Kimi finding him immature and gross.

Dil Pickles - When Phil meets Dil, he is not very fond of him, to the point of wanting to take him back to the hospital as he and his friends refer it to as the "baby store" at the time. But he eventually accepts Dil and they become friends. In All Grown Up!, they seem to still be friends and revealed in "Truth or Consequences", he and his sister, Lil accidentally dropped him on his head when he was a baby and wonders what he would be like if that incident haven't happened.

Betty DeVille and Howard DeVille - Along with his sister, he has a good relationship with both of his parents.

Angelica Pickles - Phil seems to be "frenemies" with Tommy's older cousin, Angelica. Ever since he and his friends were babies, Angelica always picks on them and treats them poorly which has been also seen in All Grown Up!. But despite all that, Phil, along with the rest of the gang, has a soft spot for Angelica whenever she does something nice.

Susie Carmichael - Though they don't interact that much, Phil seems to be good friends with Susie and often respects her.

Wally Ramone - Wally is a girl on Phil's soccer team and one of Lil's best friends who he develops a romantic interest in. Despite originally finding Phil annoying, Wally begins falling for him as well and the two begin spending a lot of time with each other, which causes Lil to become jealous. Wally breaks up with Phil after Lil tells her Phil hated holding her hand, which causes a major fight between the three. But eventually they all make up at the end and Phil and Wally remain friends.
