    back about characters having nephews and nieces

    well we can add Uncle Kermit and Robin to that list;-)oh as well as Scooby and Srappy.

    then many characters as sons too
    Sylvester and son
    Auggie Daddy and Auggie Dogie
    Goofy and Max as well as Pete and PJ

    Oh and Tiny Toons is kind of in the cattagory, of course they were young teens and unlike a pup named scooby doo these were new WB caracters as not the son of Bugs or Bugs or himself as he was younger, there was no relation, I'm not downing they show though as it one of my favortie cartoons, hey they even did Baby Plucky cartoons!;-)

    Popeye's son was Jr in the show, "Popeye and Son". Unlike his father, Jr hated spinach. Bluto was married to Ol Oil's sister and had a son.

    Oh yeah there is a good baby Popeye.

    Popeye wasn't always a squint-eyed old salt and Olive Oyl didn't start out as a skinny (albeit glamorous) beanpole. Once upon a time, they were both cuddly babies who clearly showed signs of the superstars they would become. With their little pals, Brutus, Wimpy, Swee'Pea and Eugene the Jeep, they've already started the newest baby boom. King Features proudly announces the birth of a legend: Baby Popeye and Friends! This extension of the popular Popeye brand is already generating excitement among manufacturers with new product lines for newborns, infants and toddlers.

    Swee' Pea wouldn't be alive.

    Those are good thoughts, Foz. I've noticed nobody cared much for "Looney Tunes Babies." I really did like "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo" and I vaguely remember "Flinstone Kids." That one was pretty good. As for "Sesame Street," well since that show is aimed at children already and besides we also have "Play With Me Sesame." I think making a "Sesame Street Babies" show might be going a little too far. Just my opinion.

    I agree! I don't think we should revert to "babies" programs when we already have the adults UNLESS it's something like in TMTM in Piggy's fantasy or if it is a prequel, which I'd like to stay away from those after KSY.

    Here's part of that whole prequel/marketing blitz gone crazy!! As was said, Swee'Pea wouldn't have been born yet. Someone at King Features needs a good batting on the rear! :mad:

    That was me. Also it should be baby Bluto. Brutus wasn't as important.
    He came later. And he looks wierd.

    No, it shouldn't.

    It shouldn't be ANY of these methinks.

    Sesame Babies ISNT a show... just a Merchandising ploy gone bad! Looney Tunes babies... well other than Daffy and Taz, the show SUCKS!!! It's uninterresting, bland and no where near as fresh, satirical, or clever as the Muppet Babies series was. They just stood there and talked... nothjing else...blehh

    Pup named Scooby doo... I WILL defend that! It was pretty good. Plus it did send up the original series. But I like the What's New Scooby Doo show much better.

    I have a Few Flintstone Kid's Comics... they're all right, but nothing to write home about...

    I'm not sure who would remember this, but around the time of "Flintstone Kids", there was another short-lived cartoon called "Little Rosie", and it was about Roseanne (Barr at the time) when she was a kid!

    What will they think of next? Hmmm...hey, how about "Saturday Night Live Kids" with the original cast of SNL as kids! Hey, just kidding! Just kidding!

    You know, I can almost see them animated in the school cafeteria...little John Belushi is slurping Jell-O squares off the plates and seems excited about today's menu. He keeps yelling "Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger!", Little Gilda is in her Roseanne Roseannadanna wig, showing her knee to a nauseated little Jane Curtin, commenting "Do you ever notice these scabs you get after you fall off your tricycle? They get all red and purple and then they dry up and then they start to flake off...", and Dan Ackroyd as a little Conehead, who looks-not only out-of-place, but is also annoyed with the kid behind him who's flapping Dan's arm up and down like a rag doll.

    This week's guest host, Ernie, keeps flapping Dan's arm as he talks to little versions of Lorraine Newman and Garrett Morris.

    Ernie: "So you see, that's why I always win at catch, because look at Bert's arms...see how floppy and soggy they are?" (Dan slowly turns around)

    Ernie: "Bert!...you look different...(looks at the top of Dan's head) Oh, now I know...you got a new haircut! Keeheeheeheehee!":p

    Bert, the assistant guest host, comes running up to Ernie. "Ernie! I thought I told you to save a place for me in line!" (Bert tries to move in front of Ernie when a voice from behind the counter says "Hey, enda da line, pal.") Bert looks up to see, in place of the cashier, The Mighty Favog wearing a hairnet. Bert sighs :( as he walks slowly to the back of the line. Along the way, he listens to the sound of a perpetual flushing noise as the kids pay for their lunches by dropping their lunch money into The Mighty Favog's vat.

    Oh, the things I think up on a Saturday afternoon...:)

    Yeah I mixed the both of them up, thanks for catching that! :)

    You know, I never got the point of Baby Pooh.

    All the other characters they made babies were babies at some point, but Pooh and his ilk(Eeyor, Tigger, etc.) are supposed to be stuffed Animals?

    Wouldn't that make them stray pieces of cloth then?

    Example #422,987.5:

    Fisher Price Spin and Surprise Castle, featuring Snow White, Cinderella, and Belle as children, and one of the accessories is that Child Belle has a push cart with Mrs. Potts and Chip on it.

    DO WE SEE THE NEGLIGENCE OF STORY TELLING HERE?! Disney does anything for a buck. Good grief!

    Belle wouldn't have met Mrs. Potts until she was grown, and while being a kid, Mrs. Potts would have been a real woman!!

    It's pretty dumb, but not as pointless as Baby Pooh. Belle was a child at some point, at least.

    Very true. There are so many different Spinoff Babies/Spinoff Kids type shows that were made in the wake of Muppet Babies.

    It makes you think doesn't it? Like maybe they'll be Late Night Babies/Late Night Kids.

    I can picture Lil Jay Leno playing with a collection of toy cars or riding his tricycle everywhere, Lil Conan pretending to be the Flaming C or walking around with Lil Andy Richter.

    Lil Davey Letterman and Lil Jay Leno have playful arguements with eachother, or Lil Jay Leno and Lil Conan having playful rivalries between each other.

    And Lil Stevie Colbert holding a plush toy eagle and trying to be like the Sam The Eagle of the group.
