Rugrats Pre-School Daze (also known as Angelica and Susie's Pre-School Daze and Pre-School Daze) is the second spin-off series to the Nickelodeon TV series Rugrats. It is set when Angelica and Susie are at pre-school and is based on the Rugrats episode that piloted it. It first aired in the United Kingdom on July 25, 2005, and some episodes have been released on DVD in the United States. The show aired on Nickelodeon in the United States from November 16, 2008 to December 7, 2008 at 6:00 AM Eastern Time. With only four episodes produced and aired, it is the shortest-lived of all of the Nickelodeon series ever produced.
In 2001, the show was commissioned, along with All Grown Up!, for 13 episodes and was slated to premiere late 2002. It was also announced that the new spin-off was to feature new looks for the two characters. The next official word on this series was in a press release for All Grown Up! in September 2002, which it was announced that it was now a series of 4 episodes, and there were also known to be complications involving the planned animation designs for the characters. With the success of All Grown Up! (which was actually supposed to begin after this series), the spin-off was forgotten until May 2005, when K-C announced that it had completed the "first" 4 episodes, and was planning on releasing the episodes with the upcoming Rugrats: Tales From The Crib DVDs. The first two episodes have been released on the Tales from the Crib: Snow White DVD, and the next two were released on the Tales from the Crib: Three Jacks and a Beanstalk DVD.
There are only thirteen main characters seen in the television series. Savannah and Harold also appear in All Grown Up! and several others of these characters have appeared on Rugrats or All Grown Up!.
- Angelica, the series' main protagonist
- Susie, the series' deuteragonist
- Harold, a red-haired boy often seen with a green shirt
