Hello and welcome to In Too Deep, where I over-analyse a certain section of pop culture.
Muppet Babies. Flintstone Kids. Baby Looney Tunes. Loads of shows have capitalized on making baby versions of their characters to make more money. However there are some franchises yet to do it and, well, they're missing out on so much loot. So here's my top seven franchises that need their own baby spin-off.
7)Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Inspired by Discworld, imagine the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but as babies. You have War, always having temper tantrums. You have Famine, always trying to steal food without asking for permission. You have Pestilence, that loves getting dirty. And you have Death, who can get a bit loud and whiny at times. It'll brighten up any doomsday that would.
6)Dragonball Babies: Well Goku's already proven to have been kinda cute in Dragonball, but what if we did it to the rest of the cast. Can you just imagine how cute Baby Vegeta would be (and no, I did not reference GT, because that doesn't exist). And they can have super sayian temper tantrums and all sorts of other cute baby stuff that's sure to make girls like such a masculine show.
5)Disney: No I don't mean Mickey Mouse and co. That's been done. I mean take any Disney film, any at all, and make the characters into babies. And make the baby characters found in those films into babier babies. Have them all go to one big preschool together like House of Mouse. Play-House of Mouse, it's brilliant. Disney made all those terrible sequels, I'm sure they'll buy up this idea without a second thought.
4)Twilight: Yes baby Edward and baby Jacob getting into fight about who gets to hold baby Bella's hand. She doesn't of course, since boys are icky. Sparkly boys and hairy boys are even more icky. I'm sure if you threw in a mummy or two, maybe a ghost, you could start addicting those young girls before they're old enough to read Twilight.
3)Doctor Who: Okay imagine you get all the Doctor's regenerations, put them in one show and, for maximum effect, make them all babies. Grumpy First Doctor, sensible Third Doctor, a Tenth Doctor that got too much sugar and won't calm down. I for one think that TARDIS Babies will be a smash hit that will surely win over both old and new fans alike. I mean, how can this not make money?
2)Justice League Babies: Yes the Justice Leagues as cute little babies. Superbaby is always showing off with his superpowers, Batbaby is always having a sulk, the Flash and the Green Lantern play with each other. You can just imagine the little scamps getting into all sorts of cute adventures using their superpowers for mischief. I don't know who's in charge of DC, but I'm smelling a potential multi-movie deal based on this idea. That or something a bull left in the paddock. Either or.
1)My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Okay take something that is already cute and adorable and (bear with me on this, since it is gonna blow your minds): make it even cuter. Now I know what you're thinking. Won't that create some sort of singularity of cuteness that threatens to implode, taking everything in creation with it? And the answer is yes, yes it will. But damn it if those last few precious seconds of existence won't be adorable. Plus we've already seen the mane six as younger versions of themselves, you could totally make a show about them and roll in the cash. What's not to love?
So there you have it. Seven baby spin-offs I can come up with on the top of my head. If you disagree with anything, or have anything to add, feel free to leave a comment. Till next time.
