Ijust love this. Someone takes a trait they were teased about, say, a high-pitched voice, and makes a career out of it. That's exactly what actress Cheryl Chase is doing. That's her voice behind the bratty Angelica Pickles on Nickelodeon's animated TV show "Rugrats." Chase explained during a phone interview that when she isn't working on "Rugrats" or relaxing at home in Glendale with her bunnies--Sophie, Jasper and Emerson--she's taking classes.

As head writer for the Rugrats television series and one of many writers to work on "Rugrats in Paris-The Movie," I was distressed to read in "Birth of a Nickelodeon Nation" (by Irene Lacher, special Hollywood issue, March 26) that Susan Sarandon, John Lithgow and Debbie Reynolds will provide the voices of the "preternaturally eloquent babies" in the film. These fine actors play adults in the film. The voices of the babies will belong to--and have always belonged to--a group of actors who are often unseen but should not be unsung: Christine Cavanaugh (as Chuckie)

It was perhaps inevitable that the characters from the popular Nickelodeon TV series "The Rugrats" and "The Wild Thornberrys" and their respective feature films would meet on the big screen. The result, "Rugrats Go Wild," is ideal for family audiences familiar with the combined characters that densely populate this adventure. For the uninitiated, the Rugrats are the world's most precocious babies.

"The Rugrats Movie" arrives just in time for the holidays to delight fans of the wildly popular Nickelodeon TV series featuring the adventures of the world's most precocious babies. They're actually perfectly normal kids; it's just that they speak and move and reason at a breathtakingly early age. As a work of animation this Paramount release is fresh and witty, rich in its colors and jaunty in style. As ideal and welcome a family entertainment as it is, a word of caution is in order.

In the history of American cinema, sequels that match or surpass the quality of their predecessors are not unheard of. Many critics preferred "The Empire Strikes Back" to "Star Wars." "The Godfather, Part II" is always ranked right alongside the first installment. And despite a seven-year gap between them, "Aliens" showed no stylistic drop-off from "Alien." Alas, "Rugrats in Paris--The Movie" does not fall into this category. This will matter not one lick to 6-year-olds.

Macy Gray is making a big change on the home front while hoping for another Grammy. The singer-songwriter-actress has put her Encino estate on the market at about $4.6 million. Gray, in her mid-30s, won her first Grammy in 1999 when she was named best new artist, and she's anticipating that "Big," her new album, will be as successful as her debut album -- "On How Life Is" -- when it hits stores in the fall.

They're a bunch of cartoon babies who consistently delivered top ratings over 12 seasons, nabbed four Emmys, spawned three successful feature films and created a huge merchandizing presence. Trouble is, real-life children grow up. Now the kids' network Nickelodeon and animation studio Klasky-Csupo have done something unprecedented in animation: allowed the characters to grow up too.

Actor Nicolas Cage has purchased a beachfront home in Marina del Rey for about $2.7 million. The newly built home has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in about 4,400 square feet. It has ocean views from most of the rooms, and it has a rooftop deck. The winner of a best actor Oscar (for "Leaving Las Vegas," 1995) also has homes in Bel-Air, New Orleans and Malibu, where he owns nearly 400 acres of land. In December, he bought an acre of land in Bel-Air for about $6 million. Cage, 38, co-stars with Meryl Streep in "Adaptation," a movie due out later this year.

Litter pickup crews working the Foothill Freeway near Santa Anita Park have found so much cash that they have given the stretch a nickname: "The Money Strip." Bills of every denomination, it seems, blow from the car windows of horse-racing aficionados traveling to and from the Arcadia track. "Last week I found a dollar bill. Somebody else found a fifty and two twenties," said 20-year-old Tom Nguyen, dressed in the standard Caltrans orange hard hat and vest.

When Cheryl Chase was born in New Jersey in 1956, she says, the doctors "kind of freaked out." "They wouldn't let my mother see me, and they wouldn't tell her why," she says. "After three days they decided to tell her that I was a boy, but I was terribly deformed." Chase was what doctors call an "intersex" baby--meaning she had ambiguous sexual organs.
