When Susie gets chosen to sing at a giant parade in New York City, the teens hit the road with their moms on a cross country trip! Will Betty's clunky old motor home be able to make it to NYC and see all the stops along the way (like the world's biggest ball of yarn)? Will Tommy and his pals go crazy from lack of video games and TV? Will Chuckie finally get kissed?
Drew and Stu appear in the episode but don't speak.
This is the first time the Rugrats (even in All Grown Up) ever ran away (But they eventually came back after realizing how much they need their mothers). Unless you count All Growed Up as running away, too.
