Something commonly noticed about The Rugrats series was, though Reptar was the fictional dinosaur that Tommy and the gang loved, he was also a real-life favorite to many viewers of The Rugrats. This eventually led to the pop culture entertainment chain FYE releasing the fictional products that was often featured in the Rugrats series, Reptar Cereal and Reptar Bars. Everything that we’ve ever loved about the series came to life, and now we get to see our favorite fictional dinosaur back in action in this new and upcoming Rugrats comic: RUGRATS: R IS FOR REPTAR 2018 SPECIAL #1. Full press release and cover artwork below.
