Some Alex Trebek Fans Are Feeling Nostalgic Remembering Him As Alan Quebec On 'Rugrats'

The internet was hit with some extremely sad news today. Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek passed away on November 8, at the age of 80.

Thousands of his fans have been paying tribute to him by posting messages about the influence he had on them. Including Ryan Reynolds, who described Trebek as "gracious and funny. In addition to being curious, stalwart, generous, reassuring and of course, Canadian."

And in some internet users' tributes, they bring up the fact that they remember watching the Rugrats episode where Trebek does the voiceover for the character Alan Quebec, which you can watch below.

If you look through Twitter right now, you can find tweets of people remembering Trebek as Alan Quebec in a Rugrats episode from 1993.

"One of my favorite episodes of Rugrats had Alex Trebek voice a character that spoofed himself named AlanQuebec in a Jeopardy style game show called Super Stumpers. Gonna be real sad when I watch this episode now," one Twitter user wrote.

Someone on Reddit said "My dad and I used to play risk on saturday afternoons. Whenever we would get to fighting around Quebec, I used to call it out like Johnny did announcing alex. 'Now its Alex Quebec!'" while paying tribute to the Jeopardy! host.

It's safe to say memories of both Trebek and Rugrats are putting people in their feels today — with good reason.

Although it's unclear why his character was given the last name "Quebec" since Trebek was actually born in Ontario, it's nice to know la belle province has some form of ties with this iconic Canadian.
