CBS All Access Adds 'Rugrats: Tales from the Crib' Specials

CBS All Access, the soon-to-be rebranded streaming service from ViacomCBS, has added two feature-length Rugrats: Tales from the Crib specials to its programming library!

A spin-off from RugratsRugrats: Tales from the Crib retold classic fairytales, with characters from Rugrats taking on the lead roles. There were two Rugrats: Tales from the Crib specials released as direct-to-DVD movies: Rugrats Tales from the Crib: Snow White (2005) and Rugrats Tales from the Crib: Three Jacks and a Beanstalk (2006), both of which are now available to stream on CBS All Access!

In Rugrats Tales from the Crib: Snow White, the Evil Queen (Angelica) lives for one thing alone - to be the fairest in the land! When her Magic Mirror reveals that it's the exuberant Snow White (Susie) that is the fairest and not her, the Queen, driven to rid herself of the competition, sends Snow White to the woods as the permanent babysitter for seven Mini babies (The Rugrats) who work in their diaper factory, thinking that it will drive her mad. Featuring special guest star Amanda Bynes as Taffy.

In Rugrats Tales from the Crib: Three Jacks and a Beanstalk, Aunt Moo, a kindly old cow, and her Children (The Rugrats) are given a bag of magical beans by a mysterious stranger. This stranger (Susie) turns out to be a magic fairy, and the beans they threw out the window grow into a gigantic beanstalk that leads up to the castle of a terrible Giant (Angelica.) Featuring special guest star Mo'Nique as Aunt Moo.

The addition of the Rugrats Tales from the Crib specials comes as Nickelodeon is preparing to premiere the network's brand new CG-animated Rugrats reboot later this year.

Full seasons of Rugrats and spin-off All Grown Up! are also available to stream on CBS All Access. Hopefully Angelica and Susie's School Daze (also known as Rugrats Pre-School Daze) will also join the line-up in the not-so-distant future.

CBS All Access will become Paramount+ on Thursday, March 4! Click here to find out how you can get a 50% discount!
