As I was on the couch the other night, reading, my daughter sat next to me and asked if she could watching something. Knowing very well what she would want to watch, I nevertheless answered in the affirmative. So, she fires up Netflix on the Roku box, and so begins the familiar sounds of an annoying cartoon called Rug Rats: All Grown Up. While I'm not a fan of the series, it didn't take long for it to catch my attention.
The episode was called "Yu-Gotta-Go"- and it was parodying the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game. In this episode, the young protagonist named Chuckie feels left out at school because he seems to be the only kid who doesn't have any Yu-Gotta-Go cards or any of its merchandise. So, the kid hits up the old man for an advancement on his allowance. Though denied, Chuckie discovers that his friend Angela's mother is somehow involved in the distribution of the cards. To make a long story short, the kid becomes an addict. So, instead of trying to describe the funnier parts of the show-which very closely resembles some adults I've seen in the hobby- I recorded and edited a few of the clips, which I am going to present here.
Any resemblance to actual events or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
I give to you...
