|~ Stu Pickles in The Rugrats Movie|
He was voiced by the late Jack Riley, and by E.G. Daily in the Rugrats episode Sour Pickles.
Stu is happily married and is very sociable. He often Tommy's hero in the series. Like Didi and Drew, Stu tires of his father's over exaggerated stories. Also like the other parents in Rugrats, Stu is often irresponsible with his children losing track of them.
In the season 3 episode of Rugrats called Sour Pickles, it is shown what Stu's life was like as a baby. In 1959, Lou Pickles and his now deceased wife Trixie Pickles were raising Stu and his older brother Drew at Lou's repair shop. Stu and Drew often spent their time bickering much like they do as adults.
During the flashback in this episode, Stu and Drew get into an argument and eventually break one of Lou's vases. As a punishment, Lou won't allow them to finish their TV show Blocky and Oxwinkle (parody of Rocky and Bullwinkle). Like Tommy, Stu was the leader of this adventure and used a screwdriver to unlock their crib.
In his mid-30s, Stu became inspired to work as a freelance inventor. This was first mentioned in the final episode of season 1 Stu-Maker's Elves. The inspiration for this occupation is his infant son, whom he thought would enjoy playing with new toys created by his father. However many of his inventions fail, and is also mentioned in The Rugrats Movie when Drew mocks him over a past failed invention of his The Electric Sponge. He temporarily worked a sales job for a company called "Consolidated Lard" in the episode Stu Gets a Job.
- In The Rugrats Movie, Stu goes as far as to use his Dactar glider to find the babies. Upon take off Stu was unprepared, only being held by a rope around his leg. He manages to get his bearings and seeks out the babies despite the Dactar glider malfunctioning. He also crashes into a news helicopter, but continued searching regardless.
- In the original pilot, Stu's name is Stu Pickles, Jr.
