Timothy "Timmy" McNulty (born July 5, 1986) is a recurring character in the Rugrats TV series who has appeared in multiple episodes. He was 4 1/2 years old then turned 5 in the episode A Very McNulty Birthday. He is voiced by Tara Strong.


Timmy's the oldest of the five McNulty brothers. He makes his first debut in The 'Lympics. From how he acts towards his four younger brothers, and to people in general, Timmy's basically a male version of Angelica Pickles, although he's arguably somewhat nicer than Angelica is. But, like Angelica, Timmy can be loud, competitive, bossy, mean and rude, and isn't above cheating to get what he wants.


Timmy has peach skin and several freckles on his cheeks. He has white eyes with black pupils as well as red hair. The character normally wears a yellow T-shirt and a pair of black pants. He is of Irish heritage due to his mother's accent and also his grandfather Conan's.
