Stuart Louis Pickles (born October 23, 1958) is the father of Tommy and Dil, the younger brother of Drew, and the husband of Didi Pickles. He is described as an absent-minded toy inventor. His birthday is between October 19th and 25th (according to the "All Growed Up" special), and he was born in 1958, according to the episode "Sour Pickles".


Stu is a long-time inventor of various children's toys and other products. The inspiration for this occupation is his infant son, so that he could enjoy playing with new toys created by his father. However, his inventions either frequently malfunction or scare the kids. Stu is something of a kid in an adult body. Aside from inventing and playing with his sons, he is mostly seen arguing with his older brother, Drew. Drew and Didi tend to scold Stu for not getting a more stable job to help support his family, but he doesn't enjoy non-manual labor; when he had a job selling lard, he showed great disdain for it. Like the others, Stu often tires of his father's over-exaggerated stories. Stu loves his family dearly, and goes to great lengths to keep them happy, even at his own expense. Sometimes he does the unnecessary to get people to like him.

According to his birth date, Stu is about 33-39, as the series takes place in the early 1990s. In the episode "The Legend of Satchmo", Lou makes a comment about being "35 years old and discovering you've never really lived," which seems to trouble Stu; this suggests that he is 35 throughout the series. His age is confirmed in "The Blizzard" when Chas reminds Stu that he is 35 years old and doesn't have to go to school anymore. In All Grown Up!, he is in his mid-to-late forties, though his appearance has not changed much other than having darker hair, a slightly receded hairline, and bags under his eyes.

In the 2021 Rugrats series, he continues his role as an inventor, though he has branched out into high-tech electronics. It is implied that his inventions often do not work very well and that he may not be making much money off of them. He is still the same sort of "man-child" he was in the original series, only here he is a gamer, with his favorite video game being DoorStop, which Randy Carmichael also enjoys.


Stu has peach skin and light purple hair. He wears a green collared shirt under a darker green blazer, a red tie with gray polka-dots, brown shoes, and a pair of blue jeans. Ten years later, in All Grown Up!, his light purple hair is now a darker purple, and he has bags under his eyes to show that he has aged. His outfit remains unchanged, except for his tie, which is now striped.

In the 2021 series, his eyebrows match his hair color, and his bow tie does not have polka-dots. At times, he sports noticeable stubble on his face. He often wears a black shirt featuring the logo of Final Eclipse, his favorite film.


Stu Pickles has appeared in many episodes of Rugrats. His first appearance was in "Tommy Pickles and the Great White Thing".
