Dylan Prescott Pickles (Dil) is named after his Didi's cousin and is the
youngest member of the Pickles family, the second son of Stu and Didi and the
brother of Tommy.
Dil lives with his family and their dogs Spike and Spiffy in a house next
door to the Deville's. He shares a bedroom with his big brother Tommy and
sleeps in Tommy's old crib. Dil's Grandpa Lou lived with the family until
'Rugrats in Paris' when he remarried, giving Dil a new Grandma, Lulu.
His uncle Drew is married to Charlotte and he has a cousin, Angelica who calls
him 'drooly'. His grandparents on his mom's side are Boris and Minka and he
has another uncle, Didi's brother Ben.
Dil first appeared in Rugrats in 'The Rugrats Movie
' in 1998. He was
later introduced into the main series as a regular character. He was born at
the Lipshitz birthing center and delivered by Lucy Carmichael (Susie's mom).
Before he was born Dil was thought to be a girl!
During the movie, Dil is a newborn baby, of only a few weeks old. His age was
changed to 3 months old for the regular series. His regular clothes are trap
door pajamas (yellow with orange trim, although in the movie they were purple
with orange trim) or a diaper. Because Dil is so much younger than the other
babies, he is not able to move around or talk very much and as a result learns
several words over the course of the later seasons. In order to have Dil participate
in the Rugrats' adventures Dil was given a 'kangaroo' baby walker which allows
him to 'walk' around, he is also carried by Tommy and the other babies at various
Dil is a very loud and often selfish baby. He wants everything now and will
do anything to get his own way, often stealing Tommy's toys. He has even had
the nerve to take Cynthia from Angelica! But his cute baby face is his saving
grace, as well as his love of his big brother Tommy, who he will do anything
to please... despite bashing him over the head with his rattle or bottle whenever
he can. All Grown Up
Having grown up, Dil is now nine years old and has changed dramatically from
how he was as a baby. For a start he now speaks complete sentences! He has inherited
his mom's red hair. He is known as the 'weird' Rugrat because of his unique
personality, possibly consequence of Phil and Lil dropping him on his head as
a baby. In 'Izzy or Isn't He?
' we learnt that Dil has a imaginary best
friend named Izzy. At school he usually hangs around with the Rugrats and has
problems making friends his own age, something he attributes to seeing the world
differently to everyone else. Dil is fascinated by aliens, he wants to be abducted
and, like his dad, is a bit of an inventor. He is also somewhat of a multicultural
Rugrat. His hat is a Sherpa hat, he watches Spanish Soap Opera on TV "¡Hospital
" (in 'Dude where's my Horse?
') and wears a Scottish
kilt in many episodes.
