"NO!"— Chuckie’s first word to the adults in "Rugrats in Paris: The Movie"
Charles "Chuckie" Crandall Watanabe Finster is a fictional character from the Nickelodeon animated television series' Rugrats and All Grown Up! and the main protagionist in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. He is Tommy Pickles' best friend, the son of Chaz and the late Melinda Finster, stepson of Kira Watanabe Finster, stepbrother of Kimi Finster, and the major tritagonist (originally, deuteragonist before the introduction of Dil Pickles). He was first voiced by Christine Cavanaugh, then Nancy Cartwright in seasons 8 and 9.
Why He Deserves to Have a Family (in a good way)
- He is very loyal to his peers, as he cares about his family and friends very much.
- He’s loves his dad, Chaz, very much, as well as his step-mom, Kira, and his step-sister, Kimi, and always tries to make them proud, as well as trying his best of being a good big brother to Kimi.
- Chuckie cares about his friends very much, Phil, Lil, Susie, and especially his best friend, Tommy, and is always there for them, like when he came back to Tommy to defend him and Dil from the monkeys in The Rugrats Movie.
- While timid, he remains a cute and kind boy, like when he’s friendly to even Angelica at times.
- He can be brave sometimes, like when he was brave during Rugrats in Paris, and stopped the wedding of his dad and Coco by saying "NO!" as he was running in, saying his first ever word to the adults.
- He is very smart for his age, managing to use the Reptar Wagon to quickly get to Tommy and Dil and use the Banana food jar to lure the monkeys away from them in The Rugrats Movie.
- Though he is scared of many things, he tries really hard to be brave, like when he went through his dad’s greenhouse to help Tommy when he was struggling with a water hose in "Farewell, My Friend".
- Incredible voice acting by the late Christine Cavanaugh.
- Nancy Cartwright also did a good job voicing him.
- In All Grown Up, Chuckie is always not afraid to risk his bravery. In the episode "The Finster Who Stole Christmas" he confessed to his dad Chaz that he stolen a Christmas tree even though he was afraid of being chased out of town
- He is an early of Double D from Ed, Edd n Eddy, like Double D, Chuckie's not afraid to give out word of advice.
- He is very quick to panic, like the times Angelica easily scares him.
- He can be annoying sometimes, like when struggling with his step-sister Kimi.
- He is sadly unlikable sometimes, for example, during "Grandpa’s Bad Bug", he was at his worse, as he, along with Tommy, Phil, and Lil, were doing something badly to Grandpa Lou. And also, in "Hold the Pickles", when himself, along with Tommy, Phil, Lil and Kimi try to make Dil more likeable for Taffy when they think she doesn't like him.
- His screams can be annoying at times.
- In the 2nd teaser trailer of The Rugrats Movie, he was being tortured as he was hanging for dear life.
- In the episode "TP + KF" from All Grown Up, he accuses Tommy of being Kimi's boyfriend and was somewhat out-of-character because of it. Even before Kimi confessed that it was her who carved the heart saying TP + KF on the wall of the garage at his house while looking for a costume to go trick-or-treating.
- Out of all the main Rugrats, Chuckie has the most episodes centered around him.
