Louis Kalhern "Grandpa Lou" Pickles (born November 8, 1915) is the father of Drew and Stu Pickles, and the paternal grandfather of Tommy, Dil, and Angelica.

randpa Lou Pickles, Tommy, Dil, and Angelica's paternal grandfather, a charismatic, loving and caring grandfather but is also a kind of cantankerous old geezer at the same time. He lives with his new wife Lulu at a retirement home, but often acts as a convenient baby-sitter for the babies when Stu and Didi are busy. Grandpa is indulgent with the kids. As such, he is almost more of a "Rugrat" than an adult -- functioning as a bridge between the world of kids and the world of the grown-ups. As much as the Rugrats love the old guy, they are never above taking advantage of one of Grandpa's long naps or mesmerizing television marathons to sneak away on an adventure. - Rugrats Description from Klasky Csupo
Grandpa Lou Pickles is still alive and kicking! Not only that, but he drives the school bus that gets Tommy and his pals to school every day. His hearing may not be what it used to, and he may be a bit slower and more wrinkled, but Grandpa Lou still remains active and energetic for a senior as old as he is. Too bad we haven't seen his wife Lulu yet in the All Grown Up! series, but the last we heard (from Lou himself) was that she was traveling around the world! - All Grown Up!

In the 2021 reboot, Lou is a hippy—a complete contrast to his war veteran status from the original series. He is much more laidback as he performs yoga and believes in the art of healing. He also attended the Woodstock Festival (the original Lou also attended Woodstock as confirmed in "Angelica's Birthday", though he stated that "those kids made a racket"). He is a widower and has stated that he is not gay. In "Goodbye Reptar," he tells Stu and Drew that he has not dated any other woman since their mother passed away. He is often shown looking after Angelica and the Rugrats babies when the parents are off on other activities.
Being the elder patriarch of the Pickles family, and young at heart, he likes to be adventurous. Occasionally, he flirts with women. He is commonly thought of as having a wild imagination from the many exaggerated stories he tells of his earlier years. In these stories, the number 15 is prevalent in various ways. Whenever Lou appears, his usual routine is to fall asleep in the middle of babysitting the kids and telling them a story, etc. He loves his grandchildren deeply, and always enjoys spending time with Tommy and the others.
He shares a rivalry with his cousin, Miriam, but besides his rivalry with Miriam, he's had several other rivals. His bowling rival was Billy "Strike" Maxwell (seen in "King Ten Pin"), however, Lou later regains his honor by beating him after it's revealed that Maxwell was cheating the entire time. He also has a recurring rival with Conan McNulty, with Conan often lying to him and cheating.
When his wife Trixie has to go out of town, Lou takes care of his sons, and while he loves them, he has a great frustration with their constant bickering. Over the years, Lou has had many jobs, including a soldier in the war, a cook, a repairman for small appliances, and a detective. Lou is also a bit of a schemer such as when he pretended to be ill to shirk out of doing some gardening so he can catch up with the sleep he lost while being out all night in "Grandpa's Bad Bug". He has quite a talent for playing the trumpet, as he was given a solo for the war veterans concert in "Grandpa's Teeth". One of the things he loves to do is fishing and mostly watching TV, he's almost always seen watching a show involving fishing. While Lou enjoys doing new things, he can be very stubborn with trying some new things. He frequently compares the modern day world to the way it was in his day, often bragging on that the way something is done is nothing compared to how he did it when he was younger. He is, however, often thought to be making these stories up.
Lou Pickles has peach skin and a pair of white eyes with black pupils. He has gray hair and is often shown wearing a purple shirt and a green vest, green pants, and brown shoes. He looked just like his son, Drew Pickles, when he was younger, but as he got older, he now looks more like his other son, Stuart Pickles. In All Grown Up!, he wears a green jacket over a blue vest and white shirt, a blue bow tie, light yellow pants, and brown shoes. In Seasons 2-5, The color of his jacket is changed to red.
In the 2021 series, Lou wears brown glasses, a purple tie-dye shirt long-sleeved shirt, tan pants, purple socks, and brown sandals. He also has a green fanny pack around his waist and his remaining hair braided on the back of his Head.
