With Babies in theaters, we take look back on some of the most memorable babies of all time.
Slide 11: Child of Capitalism - Baby Herman
Robert Zemeckis’ toon-noir Who Framed Roger Rabbit pulls the curtain back on the exploitation of animated characters by the cartoon capitalist conspiracy. But every toon was a patsy to the studio’s shenanigans. On screen, like in the Maroon Studios cartoon “Somethin’ Cooking,” Baby Herman plays the adorable tyke who continually crawls into trouble. While the baby consistently escapes unscathed the same cannot be said for his guardian, Roger Rabbit. The cute baby was played in real-toon-life by Baby Herman, a cigar-chompin’, bouncing ball-busting actor who ain’t going to be pushed around, either in a baby carriage or by a studio bigwig.
