Cute Show with Family and Christian Values

I watched the entire show with my 7 year old daughter. We loved it. It teaches the importance of family relationships over business and shows BBs development throughout the show. It does have a blatant conservative and capitalist view but overall it is a nice show. I prefer Boss Baby over shows like Pinky Malinky. Some may have issues with Mega Fat CEO baby's name and him being mean but toward the end of the show he ends up redeeming himself, unfortunately they never reveal his actual baby name that his adoptive mother gave him. Overall, the show has great lessons about family values. Even though it differs a lot from the cute movie in animation plot, the character is still there. We loved it! I also loved the end where BB gives everyone gifts before his departure from Baby Corp. Our favorite character is the wild card, Stacy.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (26 ):
Kids say (46 ):

This series follow-up to the popular movie is alternately laugh-out-loud funny and heartwarming, thanks to spot-on writing that casts the two brothers as polar opposites. Boss Baby is adorable in his severity -- contrasted sharply with his bottle-toting, back-flap pants-wearing physical image -- while Tim is confident in his belief that family can solve anything. The loss of Alec Baldwin as Boss Baby's voice does little to dampen his appeal. He's still as single-minded as ever, yet begrudgingly fond of his doting parents and home life.

Back in Business does an about-face on the sibling rivalry theme that dominated the movie, now casting Boss Baby and Tim as brothers in arms of sorts. They may not always see eye to eye, but they stick up for each other and recognize when their shared experiences teach them things. Body humor, slapstick comedy, and generally silly experiences will entertain kids who watch, and parents will find humor in the nuances of the workplace dynamics of Baby Corps headquarters, where the big boss gets around in a baby walker and there are teething cookies in the break room.
