The Rugrats animated series ran on Nickelodeon during the 1990s and featured a group of toddlers and preschoolers with vivid imaginations, often referencing other pop-culture properties.
Cut to Boom! Studios’ Rugrats comic, and the tradition continues.
In this week’s Rugrats #2, there’s an obvious Game of Thrones reference off the bat – little Tommy channels his inner Jon Snow, while Angelica honours Queen Cersei.
In another sequence, Chuckie and Tommy are clearly Akira’s Tetsuo and Kaneda.
