Rugrats

Kimi was the last addition to the cast of Rugrats, making her first appearance in the second Rugrats movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. In Rugrats, the one and a half-year-old Kimi was portrayed as very brave and often stumbled into dangerous situations she was too naïve to recognize, often bringing her new brother, Chuckie Finster, along, much to his dismay.


She was introduced as Chuckie's new sister, after her mother, Kira Watanabe-Finster, married Chuckie's father, Chaz Finster after she divorced Hiro Watanabe. This marriage and the changes it brought to the Finster family were used in Rugrats to teach the child viewers, by demonstration, about adapting to such drastic changes caused by divorce and remarriage. For the record label, see Divorce Records. ...


Kimi is depicted as being an avid fan of the fictional television show Dummy Bears; watching Dummy Bears had an almost hypnotic effect on her. She was still a fan of this show years later, in All Grown Up.

All Grown Up

In All Grown Up!, set approximately nine years later, Kimi grew up to some extent. Her age is never clearly defined, but it is largely assumed that she is 10 years old. She had a tendency to buck the trend on how she feels about and treats less popular kids, including Z. She was also portrayed as being supportive of her best friend Susie when she was in need. However, Kimi is also portrayed as having a tendency to hold grudges.


Angelica Pickles could be considered somewhat of an associate, but grudgingly so on Kimi's behalf.


Character synopsis

There are many defining episodes where Kimi could have some development as character but she didn't. The traits disappear after one episode; which will be detailed here.


Kimi also seems to be a born opportunist, ready to nip any golden opportunity in the bud as it comes. A classic example can be found in the episode, "Chuckie's In Love", where she sees a chance to attend a Sulky Boys record signing with Lil by letting Chuckie take over her shift (which, incidentally, falls at the same time as the signing) in exchange for a makeover. Chuckies In Love is the thrid episode of All Grown Ups 1st season. ...


It's been revealed in the episode "Dude, Where's My Horse?" that Kimi cannot cook. Dude, Wheres My Horse? is another two-part episode of the Nickelodeon show All Grown Up. ...


Kimi works part-time at the Java Lava, her family's coffee shop, with her brother, Chuckie, her father, Chaz (who is the owner of the Java Lava).


She revealed in "TP + KF" that she carved the said initials in the Finsters' cellar years ago when she had a crush on Tommy (for two minutes), although Tommy said that he wasn't and will never be attracted to Kimi . TP+KF is an unaired (in the US) episode of the Nickelodeon show All Grown Up!. Halloween is coming up, and Tommy and the gang are looking for costumes in Tommys basement. ...


In the pilot episode "All Growed Up" she has only four lines and then never said one word throughout part two of the pilot.


Kimi never speaks her Japanese native language in Rugrats and/or All Grown Up.
