With Babies in theaters, we take look back on some of the most memorable babies of all time.
Slide 15: Child of Persistence - Baby Huey
While Baby Huey is best known as a star of Paramount Pictures’ Famous Studios cartoons, he first appeared in a Casper the Friendly Ghost comic book. But after his television debut in the 1950 toon “Quack a Doodle Doo,” the oversized duckling became a comic fixture, appearing in many cartoons and even getting his own comic book, and many years later a direct-to-video feature film. Yet despite so many appearances, his storyline stayed pretty much the same. After being humiliated by other kids because of his awkward size, he returns to save them by using that same awkward size. As an unexpected hero, Huey proved an inspiration for people like U.S. President Bill Clinton. In 1993, Clinton remarked, "I'm a lot like Baby Huey. I'm fat. I'm ugly. But if you push me down, I keep coming back."
