"At the Movies" is the first segment of the third episode of Rugrats, notable for marking for the first appearance of Reptar. It is also the first episode to include the Dummi Bears as well as the early recurring characters Larry and Steve.


Stu and Didi decide to take Tommy and his friends to go see The Dummi Bears and the Land Without Smiles at The West Side Octoplex 8. The babies really want to see the Reptar movie, so when they go to the theater and the Dummi Bears movie starts, the babies sneak off to try to find the room showing Reptar at the theater.

The first room they attempt to get into is showing a romance film, so they move on and end up accidentally creating a huge mess at the concession stand. They look in the popcorn popper, eating candy bars, and playing with the orange and grape soda dispensers, ketchup and mustard pumps, and straws. They also find hot dogs, hot dog buns, popcorn tubs, lids, napkins, and cups. They find their way up to the projection booth and finally find the room where Reptar is playing.

As the Rugrats are watching the film through the booth window, they fall down on some film, and they decide to ride on the projectors for fun. In the process, though, all of the projectors in the room become unraveled, and various films break so they exit the room. They soon run into Grandpa, who was getting popcorn at the concession stand and are led back into the theater. As they arrive, The Dummi Bears and the Land Without Smiles is about to reach its climax, but the film burns as a result of the kids' earlier tomfoolery, and everyone leaves the Octoplex disgruntled.
