First of all, when they decided to make this show, the people turned the rugrats we know and love into stereotypical teenagers. Lil and Kimi , who in the original series were portrayed as tomboys and perfectly capable of handling themselves, have become the typical female teenager, obsessed with fashion and boys. The boys have lost their personalities and one of them is also obsessed with the opposite gender. The whole show does not have believable characters and, all in all, it seems like a younger ripoff of some teen comedy. I halfway wonder why the creators didn't follow the formula of "As Told By Ginger", which shows the teenagers at their best and worst and doesn't "give in" to stereotypes. If you want your daughter or son to begin acting like the teenagers you see on most commercials, then by all means, let them watch the show. Otherwise, let them watch cartoons like Codename: Kids Next Door, which doesn't have severe gender stereotyping.
