#97 More Reptar Would Have Been Awesome.

On Rugrats, the babies were fans of a big, green dinosaur named Reptar who was an obvious play on Godzilla. It wasn’t really clear if he was friend or foe because sometimes he looked to be a hero while other times it seemed the opposite. Apparently he was the most marketable character in the Rugrats’ little world because he’s seen on cereal boxes, movies, ice skating shows, TV shows, action figures, amusement parks and other merchandise. On multiple occasions, The Rugrats met Reptar, or someone dressed like him at public events, such as “Reptar On Ice!” It kind of made us envy the babies because most of us wouldn’t have minded an entire market of Reptar stuff in our reality. It seems as if we knew Reptar was made up and we only got him in small doses, so we wanted to see more of him. It was a typical case of wanting what we can’t have. There were plenty of forms of entertainment available to us, yet we couldn’t resist the animated Godzilla rip off. Being shown all those tiny snippets of Reptar was like watching an awesome movie trailer for a film that isn’t ever going to be made. Besides The Beets, Reptar was the greatest form of fiction, toon entertainment. If “The Beets Killer Tofu Tour and “Reptar On Ice” were in town on the same night at the same time, which one would you go to?
