The first images of the Rugrats reboot have been released. Watch a clip below:
Since news that the much-loved cartoon was going to be given a CGI makeover, fans have been keen to see how it would actually look.
Well, Nickelodeon has finally shared the first few piece of footage of Tommy, Chuckie, Susie, Angelica, and, of course, Phil and Lil.
And it's worth pointing out that all of them will be voiced by the original actors, so it should feel a bit more authentic for fans of the original '90s cartoon.
Speaking about the new series and the design, Ramsey Naito, the president of Nickelodeon Animation, said she was excited to have the characters brought back to life.
She said: "Rugrats is one of the most iconic cartoons recognized by fans around the globe, and this original version is one we are taking great care and pride in creating for a brand new audience.
"Having the voice cast behind these special characters come together is one of the essential pieces to making the show recognisable and we can't wait to watch this talented group bring them to life again."
But it's safe to say that fans are divided on it, with some finding the more life-like characters a little off-putting.
Taking to Twitter, one user said: "The new Rugrats show looks creepy af."
Another chimed in: "The Rugrats new look doesn't look THAT bad but maybe if they made their pupils a LITTLE bit bigger they'd look less creepy tbh."
"Can Hollywood please stop doing remakes of things and just come up with new and innovative ideas.. no one wants to see Rugrats in a weird animation style," put a third.

However, not all fans were so critical of the new design.
One user said: "Rugrats was a pretty nostalgic cartoon for me growing up so its nice to see that this new one is pretty decent."
Another commented: "The new Rugrats series looks actually pretty decent animation wise, plus they have the 2003 ninja turtle series so they've got me on that alone."
A release date for the new series has yet to be announced, but it will air on Paramount+.
