Winning a million retroactive cool points this week is toddler-a-thon the animated series, the Rugrats for a sneaky, blink and you’ll miss it Doctor Who reference.
The Saturday morning mainstay (along with Trev & Simon and hangovers) which ran from 1991 to 2004Â revolved around Tommy (E. G Daily), a toddler with an eye for adventure and a wrench in his diaper, who took his playpen pals, Chuckie (Christine Cavanaugh), and twins PhilÂ & Â Lil (Kath Soucie)Â on amazing flights of fancy through the surroundings of his parents home and the world around them.
The Â little Easter egg – featuring in Season Two’s “Toy Palace” -Â sees Chuckie walking by a toy shop shelf where sits a collection of pink Daleks (or as close to Daleks as the show could get without Terry Nation coming around and stampingÂ on all their toys.)
So, can everyone else think of any Doctor Who or any other sci-fi references hidden in their childhood favourites (though I was more of a Hey Arnold! man…)?
