It's official: TV producers have run out of ideas. Alongside revivals of such 1990s classics like Frasier and Ren & Stimpy, we also have the Rugrats reboot to add to an evergrowing list of televisual comebacks. Rather predictably though, some '90s kids are already complaining after getting a glimpse of the show's new look in a first-look teaser which was released online yesterday.

While the classic pint-sized heroes of Tommy, Angelica and Chuckie all bear the same classic designs of the original show (and you can always check out our 27 top character design tips to make your own cool creations), it seems not everyone's a fan of the CGI makeover on display here.
