"The Finster Who Stole Christmas" is the Christmas episode of the Nickelodeon animated series All Grown Up!, the sequel series to Rugrats. It was produced as the ninth episode of the show's third season.


This page about a Christmas special or an episode from a television series with a Christmas theme is in need of a longer synopsis. You can help the Christmas Special Wiki by expanding this synopsis.

The Rugrats have begun their winter holiday vacation! They are all talking about how they will spend it. Chuckie is worried about his father's choice of Christmas trees, Tommy and Dil are writing their very own Hanukkah song, and Susie is practicing for her solo in her church's Christmas concert. Soon they discover that one of their neighbor's Christmas trees has been stolen...and they can't believe their ears when they find out who did it!


To date, the episode's only home video release was on the Nick Picks: Holiday compilation DVD, released by Paramount Home Entertainment on September 26, 2006.


Chuckie visits a very familiar-looking mall Santa.

  • Melinda Finster, Chuckie's deceased biological mother, makes a very brief cameo in one of the Finster Christmas home movies that Tommy and Chuckie watch.
  • The Santa Claus actor whom Angelica drove to quit in "Babies in Toyland" reappears in this episode (albeit now voiced by Glenn Shadix instead of Jim Belushi), first shown exiting the Java Lava, and later working at the mall.
  • At one point, Lil tells Chuckie, "God will forgive you." This is a very rare instance of somebody mentioning God by name in a Nicktoon. In fact, earlier in the episode, Chuckie refers to God as "the burning bush guy".
  • The episode's title is a reference to How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
  • Susie's performance of "The First Noel" was included on the album Nick Holiday.
