15 alien babies that could join Baby Yoda at our imaginary daycare
"The Child" — The Mandalorian (2019)
Baby Yoda (or technically "The Child") is unofficially 2019's patron saint. He saved the Mandalorian from being crushed by a space rhino by using his itty-bitty force powers, so he's already a hero not only in our hearts but in practice. For that reason and so many more, we must stan.
Groot — Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
The battle sequence where Baby Groot is rocking to his tunes will go down in history as the cutest Marvel brawl in history, only rivaling whatever fight Chris Evans is in.
Morty Jr. — Rick and Morty (2014)
In this season 1 episode, Morty wanted a little keepsake from his adventures with his drunk uncle Rick. He ends up an alien spawn that looks like him except he has arms for ears. Morty Jr. matures quickly and soon craves destruction. Your souvenir at Disney would never.
Ethan — Extant (2014)
In this short-lived show, Halle Berry was an astronaut who comes back to earth to find that her husband created an alien baby called a humanich. His name is Ethan. Him and Baby Yoda would be buds.
Trilobite — Prometheus (2012)
Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace) thought she was sterile. Good news: She's not. Bad news: She's not.
Megamind — Megamind (2010)
Look at those EYES. The most maniacal villain the world has ever seen (voiced by Will Ferrell as an adult) also rocked the most precious little cheeks.
Squid — Men in Black (1997)
This octo-baby barfed all over Will Smith. And it never made another movie. Coincidence?
Connie — Coneheads (1993)
Nothing to see here, folks. Just a normal family with foot-tall craniums. They're from France.
Vessna — Alien Nation (1989)
On the short-lived TV show, a male alien gave birth, giving new meaning to ''daddy's girl.''
"Stage 2" Xenomorph — Alien (1979)
The critter in Ridley Scott's sci-fi hit was nicknamed ''chestburster.'' No prizes for guessing why.
"Stage 2" Xenomorph — Spaceballs (1987)
Mel Brooks' sci-fi spoof included an Alien homage that was also a gifted ragtime musician.
Nippet — Star Wars: Episode VI—Return of the Jedi (1983)
Darth Vader is gone! The Imperial fleet is finished! This baby Ewok is psyched.
The baby born "The Littlest Dragon" — V (1983)
''It's a girl!'' said the nurse. ''IT'S A LIZARD BABY!'' screamed every traumatized TV viewer.
Podlings — The Dark Crystal (1982)
The podlings from this '80s fantasy adventure are definitely babies, just like how a dog can always be a pup if you want them to be. This podling looks like it got the world's most expensive haircut and honestly, priorities!
Mearth — Mork & Mindy (1978-82)
When Mork (Robin Williams) lays an egg, it hatches a bouncing baby Jonathan Winters.
Lumpawarrump — The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)
Baby Yoda has completely taken the spotlight from Chewbacca's son -- Lumpawarrump, Lumpy to his friends -- in this '70s special that definitely exists. We can't have that sort of injustice in this household.
