Baby Talk came out when I was just finishing junior high and entering high school. Everybody I knew in school just hated Baby Talk. Including me. I hated it when I watched the pilot episode when it debuted on ABC. Baby Talk was basically a pathetic attempt to try to keep the 'Look Who's Talking' movies in the public eye. And what a waste this was. It's about a single mother who's raising a baby that could talk in his mind, and it's the usual smart-allecky, so-called precocious jibber-jabber. Where's the fun in that? If anything, it's totally dull. Even Ren and Stimpy were more entertaining!
I've heard Julia Duffy left the show after one season, and Connie Sellecca auditioned for the role of the mom and dropped out at the last minute. What was Mary Page Keller doing wasting her acting abilities in a lame show like this? Even Scott Biao could've been in something more amusing. Also, I've heard nothing seemed to deter ABC to make this inane sit-com a success. Baby Talk was also the "Worst Show in Television" in a viewer poll in the year this show came out. So, in perspective, Baby Talk killed itself. Literally.
George Clooney made some appearences in this show, but watch ER or some of his movies instead. Let's all hope no network picks up any Baby Talk reruns. It's no wonder this show was such a flop, just one viewing of an episode, and you could see why.
