The original Rugrats artist has drawn Tommy, Chuckie and the gang as adults

We can't decide whether this is magic or tragic, but the eternally young Rugrats that you knew and loved as a child have been brought into the present day by one of their original storyboard artists, Eric Molinsky.

The baby cartoon characters graced our screens for 15 years and since it's final season aired in 2004 many artists and illustrators have taken a stab at depicting what Tommy, Chuckie and the gang would look like all grown up. Most of which tend to envisage them as cool hipsters that could easily be part of an ASOS campaign like the below.

Speaking of the images Molinsky said:

"It really bugs me — not the quality of the artwork, but the interpretation."

"We referred to them as lumpy babies for a reason. If we ever drew the Rugrats as being too cute, our executive producer would scold us."

"They did not all grow up to be fashion models or self-confident hipsters. Especially not Chuckie. They grew up to be average if not slightly lumpy looking people — just like their parents."

Just like this.

So there you have it, everyone grows up. Everyone gets lumpy, even your favourite cartoon characters.
