Funny or Die has poked fun at "Rugrats" by releasing a faux red band trailer of a live-action take on the Nickelodeon animation. Instead of showing the loveable toddlers in hilarious scenes, the video features the characters in a quite disturbing way.
In it, Angelica Pickles is seen murdering her grandpa by striking his head with a baby bottle. She then forces the rest of the toddlers to keep it secret by intimidating and manipulating them. At some points, she is also seen threatening orange-haired Chuckie Finster.
The video is directed by Ryan Perez. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" star Mae Whitman plays the mean Angelica, "Arrested Development" actress Alia Shawkat tackles the part of Chuckie, and "Red State" actor Michael Angarano portrays Tommy Pickles.
The original "Rugrats" show was first aired on Nickelodeon in 1991. The story revolves around 4 babies; Tommy, Chuckie as well as twins Phil and Lil Deville. In their daily life adventures, the babies are joined by Tommy's cruel cousin Angelica, their friend Susie Carmichael, and the parents. The show has been brought to the big screen for several times, including "Rugrats Go Wild" in 2003.
