This place gives me the juice bumps.

- Maybe we should go back.

- Very back.

We can't go back now.

Okey-dokey Jones never goes back!

Hang on to your diapies,

we're going in!

Thats Tommy Pickles.

Hes the bravest baby l ever knowed.

And thats Phil and Lil.

They like worms.

And Im Chuckie.

Im not so brave.

Thats Okay, 'cause Ive got Tommy,

and hes my bestest friend.

Watch out!

- Keep going!

- It's right behind us!


Tommy ...

Come on, Chuckie!

Tommy, you kids

shouldn't be playing in here.

We thought the fun times

would last forever.

But we was wrong.

- oh, my ...

- Upsy-daisy, Didi.

Thank you for inviting me

to your baby shower, Mrs. Pickles.

- Glad you could be here, Suzy.

- What a pretty dress, Angelica.

My mummy's assistant bought it

especially for Aunt Didi's party.

Don't say a word.

$20 on 8 pounds, 6 ounces.

Who's got 8-7?

- 12 pounds, are you crazy?

- You can't see she's gained weight.

I mean, from behind.

Look what we got for you.

Boris, move your tuchis!

A goat?

Mum, you shouldn't have.

Nothing better for her

than goat's milk.

Except maybe yak. But you try

finding good yak these days.

Here you go, Kinderlach,

some chocolate coins.

- Aren't you gonna eat it, Tommy?

- Im saving it for my baby sister.

- She finally came?

- Not yet.

But they're giving her this party,

so Im pretty sure today's the day.

Do you think she got losted

on the way to the party?

Maybe we should look for her.

- Come on.

- But she could be anywhere.

- Watch it, pups.

- Careful.

- How's our little man?

- Dr. Lipschitz says it's a girl.

That windbag thought

Phil and Lil were intestinal gas.

- ''Riding high, it's a guy.''

- You know what they say:

''Born under Venus, look for a ...''

Dr. Lipschitz is the expert.

None of you have a Ph.D. in Latin.

Pig Latin, maybe. Let's just hope

for Tommy's sake it's a girl.

How my pups would squabble

if they were both boys!

Let's not do any

gender stereotyping. After all, -

- Stu and drew are brothers,

and they get along fine.

- Pushy! Bossy!

- Lazy! Inconsiderate!

- Why can't you listen to me?

- We're talking about a real job.

Im not gonna waste my life as a

clock-punching, paper-pushing ...

No offence.

You got no insurance, no savings

and another kid on the way.

For your information, bro,

I am working on something now -

- that will put this branch of the

Pickles family on easy street.

- What now, an electric sponge?

- of course not. That was last year.

This is the Reptar wagon!

The ultimate in toddler

transportation. The perfect toy!

In my day, we had plenty of fun

just throwing rocks at each other.

The Reptar Corp is holding

a toy-design contest.

The winner gets $500.

There'll be plenty more if this toy

is a hit. And Ill be famous!

That's what you said

when you built that stupid thing.

Maybe Ducktar was a little complex.

But this ... watch!

I am Reptar. Hear me roar.

I am Reptar. Hear me roar.

Can't a man work in his own basement

without getting barbecued?

Okay, so maybe real fire isn't

the best idea for a children's toy.


somebody's been colouring your room.

Yup, it's for my new sister.

- How are we gonna find her?

- We don't know what she looks like.

Well, she's a girl like me,

so we know she'll be prettyful.

You babies got a lot to learn

about the facts of life.

I must get back to the dessert table

before the grown-ups eat it all.

Angelica, can you help us

find my baby sister?

I wouldn't be in such a hurry.

When she gets here, she'll get all

the toys and love and attention.

Your mummy and daddy
