Storyline

A married couple living in a quiet neighborhood with not-so-quiet neighbors discover the joys and the pains (but mostly the pains) of raising a new-born girl in a not-so-perfect world. Darryl, the father, juggles family life with and a job that pays a modest salary while his wife, Wanda, stays at home and cares for their daughter Zoe, with help from their babysitter Bizzy who needs a turn-stile for the number of boys that she dates. Things aren't better when you're neighbors with the Bittermans, a family composed of a militant father named Carl who's always teaching his loud, obnoxious children, Rodney, Megan and Shelby, survival skills while his wife, Melinda, who seems to have an existential outlook on life. Case in point: it's "Rugrats" for the parents who were forced to watch it with their giddy kids. Written by Nicholai

A Sweeter Version of the Modern Animated Sitcom
20 August 2005 | by trueluvnanarchySee all my reviews

Unlike other modern animated shows aimed at adults, Baby Blues is sweet and comforting, and still moderately funny. It's like watching The Family Guy if it were rated G, with a mildly racy joke thrown in every once in a while. Instead of this formula being the norm on television, it is the major exception, and that makes it stand out. It doesn't try to cram in as many crude jokes and sexual innuendos 22 minutes can hold, thus making the comedy play second fiddle to the gross-out/shock factor. Baby Blues relies on plots with substance to entertain it's audience, with a realistic (at least for a cartoon) married couple and their everyday struggles with parenthood, financial problems, and unglamorous jobs. The humor does tend to fall a little flat in some areas, simply because much of the show's marital and work issues have been covered numerous times since the beginning of moving pictures. But the show manages to inject just enough sweetness into the formula to make the viewers care about the characters and what will happen next. It's too bad Baby Blues was canceled so abruptly. It could've easily evolved into a another classic animated sitcom.
