SkyeAce wants to know...
Question: Hi!! This one is for Tara. Was it hard to cry for the part of Baby Dil?
Tara Charendoff: It wasn't hard at first, but sometimes if I do three episodes in a row of all screaming, sometimes that gets hard. Now that Dil is in the series we do a few episodes back to back.
NickEmcee: Here's another question for Tara....
Question: Do you find yourself talking babyish after a show?

Tara Charendoff: I'm always doing silly little voices that come out of nowhere.
NickEmcee: Okay, the next question is for Melissa...

KCSchad wants to know...
Question: What was your favorite part of the movie?
Tara Charendoff: I loved when Baby Dil gives Tommy his blanket. That was really cute. There's a great scene when Tommy is holding up his little book and the parents are paying attention to Dil. Tommy is so cute!!
NickOp2: RUGRATS SECRET FACT:
When the "Rugrats Movie" creators first started developing ideas for the feature over two years ago, they had some pretty far-out concepts for the film, like having a diamond thief or an evil doctor as a bad guy. But it was eventually decided that these ideas were "a little too forced."
NickEmcee: One more question for Melissa, then we'll have Kel Mitchell on hand!
DolphinEMW wants to know...
Question: Melissa, when did you start acting?
Melissa Joan Hart: When I was four! This Friday on the set of "Sabrina," I was running through the living room and it was covered in poppies, and I slipped and fell right on my butt in front of the whole crew. It was pretty embarrassing. And caught on film of course. My little sister and I have an animated series now called "Sabrina," and my sister Emily plays Sabrina and I play the aunts!
NickOp2: Is that Kel I see?
NickEmcee: It is indeedy! Well, I guess we'll have to let Tara and Melissa go to enjoy the party, but start sending your Kel Mitchell questions!
Melissa Joan Hart: Thanks for everything. Bye everyone!
NickEmcee: No, no. Thank you!
Tara does an incredible job as Dil Pickles in The Rugrats Movie!
The producers, writers, creators and stars of the film were also at The Rugrats Movie Premiere. Other celebrities attended, including Kim Delaney, Loni Anderson (WKRP), comedian Sinbad, French Stewart (3rd Rock), Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa & Sabrina), Lisa Loeb, Penny Marshall (Laverne & Shirley), Wesley Snipes, Howie Mandel, Rosanna Arquette, James Woods and Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), along with the winners of Nick's Rugrats Movie contest.
The birth of Tommy's baby brother will be a central focus of The Rugrats Movie. The first feature film spinoff will mark the debut of Dylan (Dil) Pickles and the challenge his arrival brings to the pint-sized circle of friends. Word is, too, that the tots will venture far beyond the living room into a forest filled with circus-escapees such as wolves and monkeys. And the babies will sing, thanks to a soundtrack featuring such artists as Lou Rawls and the B-52s.
Dil joined the Rugrats tv series on 1/18/99 at 8:00 PM
