In the story, the Rugrats and their parents are on a ramshackle boat Tommy's dad Stu has rented in the South China Seas. Naturally, the boat shipwrecks, leaving them deserted on a small island. On the same island, but on the other side, are the famous globe-trotting family, the Thornberrys (out to film a leopard). The babies set off to find them, for they suspect they are somewhere on the island (as it happens, Tommy treats Nigel like an idol). Somewhere along the way, Chuckie gets lost and runs into the Thornberrys' Tarzan-like child, Donnie, and the two switch clothes. Meanwhile, Eliza, the gifted Thornberry, is tramping around the jungle and runs into Spike, the Rugrats dog. Since Eliza can talk to animals, Spike tells her that the babies are lost somewhere in the forest. Also, her father, Nigel, sees them. After a bonk on the head (with a coconut) however, Nigel has amnesia. Angelica runs into Debbie, teenage Thornberry, and she takes off with Debbie in the Thornberry's all-purpose Comvee. While not paying attention, the bumbling twosome sink the Comvee and generally cause havoc. Meanwhile, pop cultures references to just about anything about castaways on an island (in particular, Gilligan's Island, Survivor, and Lord of the Flies) ensue.

Trivia

  • Unlike the previous Rugrats films, this does not make any drastic changes to the series continuity, such as introducing new characters (Dil & Kimi). This is most likely to be because All Grown Up!, set ten years in the future, had already started its run, so adding a new rugrat would not make much sense.
  • Rugrats Go Wild was originally made by Klasky Csupo's television unit, (directed by Mark Risley and written by Kate Boutilier) but after wildly successful screenings, Paramount decided it should be shelved and remade into a feature film. The television version, a 90 minute special, still exists somewhere in the Klasky Csupo/ Nickelodeon vaults.
