Do I believe it ? No. There are too many things in the rug rats series to go against this, but in an alternate reality this could have been the whole plot behind the rug rats. There are plenty of dark stories that people switched around to make enjoyable and family friendly for kids. And now they twist it around for a dark humor. Shits and giggles. I don't feel it ruins my childhood, we're adults the world isn't perfect and that's what this description is showing. It's just a what if tale. Who cares. It's quit interesting.
