Voiced By: Amanda Bynes

First Appearance: Happy Taffy

Taffy is Lulu's grand-niece, who was hired as a regular babysitter for the Rugrats (called "The Minis" by Taffy). Using her unorthodox methods of babysitting, Taffy has proven herself to be the the best babysitter the Rugrats have ever had. Being the lead singer of her band, "The Saltwaters", she also loves to sing and play guitar; she is also a little clumsy.


1. Amanda Bynes is a Nickelodeon regular, appearing as a regular on All That and as a star on The Amanda Show. She has since moved to The WB, where she will star in a new sitcom, What I Like About You. She has also co-starred with Frankie Muniz ("Malcolm In The Middle") in the motion picture "Big Fat Liar" (2001).

2. How popular is Taffy with the Rugrats? She's so popular, that she'll become a regular character in the series, beginning with the 12th season in 2003. Except in the US, where, due to Nick mixing-and-matching episodes, she's already practically a regular in the 11th season. But how popular will she be with Rugrats viewers? Only time may tell in the long term; but, when the Taffy episodes first aired in the US, Klasky-Csupo received dozens of e-mails, telling them how much they love Taffy.
