"Momma Trauma" "Special Delivery"
"Real or Robots" is the first segment of the eighth episode of Rugrats.


After seeing a Frankenstein-type horror flick, Tommy and Chuckie go see if Stu is a human or a robot. Stu, however, has a recurring sleepwalking dream, in which he is the host of a cooking show.


  • Stu says to Chuckie that "your mom and dad will come pick you up in the morning", but later in the series, Chuckie's mom is revealed to have died. At this point, the writers had not yet decided whether Chuckie's mom would be alive, or if his parents were divorced.
