Susie Carmichael is a supporting character from the Nickelodeon animated series Rugrats, and one of the main characters in its spin-off, All Grown Up! She is an African-American girl who lives with her parents, Randy and Lucy, and her older siblings Alisa, Buster, and Edwin (though her siblings were inexplicably retconned as her cousins in the reboot), in the house across the street from the Pickles' residence. She is a polar opposite to Tommy's cousin Angelica, and as such, she is always willing to support Tommy and his friends in their adventures, often taking a stand against Angelica. Later in the series and in the spin-off All Grown Up! (which takes place approximately ten years after the events of the original series), Susie develops a talent for singing.

Appearances in Christmas specials[]

All Grown Up![]

Susie The Finster Who Stole Christmas

Susie sings "The First Noel" in "The Finster Who Stole Christmas".

Susie does not appear in either of the three Christmas episodes of the original Rugrats series (in fact, the first one, "The Santa Experience", was produced and aired before her introductory episode, "Meet the Carmichaels"). She does, however, have a prominent role in the All Grown Up! holiday-themed episode "The Finster Who Stole Christmas". Early on in the episode, Susie mentions that she's going to sing a solo in the annual Unity And Faith Concert at the church her family attends. Later, when she hears about the Hillicki family's Christmas tree being stolen, Susie expresses disgust at that. At the end of the episode, Susie sings "The First Noel" at the church concert, and then introduces Tommy and Dil as they start singing their new Hanukkah song.

Rugrats (2021)[]

After missing out on the Christmas episodes of the original Rugrats, Susie appeared prominently in the reboot's holiday-themed episode, "Traditions".

Other Christmas productions[]

A few years before "The Finster Who Stole Christmas" aired, Susie made a few cameo appearances in the Merry Nickmas interstitial shorts. Her most prominent appearance in these segments was in "A Chuckie Finster Christmas, Channukah, Kwaanza, Winter Solstice", in which she is seen dancing along with the other Rugrats. At the end of the segment, she and the rest of the Rugrats wish happy holidays to Chuckie. She also appears as one of the citizens of Toonville in "How the You-Know-Who Stole You-Know-What!"

Mentions in other Christmas specials[]

Although Susie didn't appear in any of the original show's Christmas episodes, she is mentioned in the last one, "Babies in Toyland". In that special, Angelica says that she wants a bicycle with flower training wheels just like the one that Santa gave to Susie last year.
