Added DiffLines:

* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: It's true that, if you want to tally up all the physical mishaps, David comes out slightly ahead. But for the most part, Susan's just as prone to tripping, slipping, ripping her clothing, falling off ladders, and plunging forehead-deep into running water as he is.

* AllAnimalsAreDomesticated: Subverted. Baby the leopard is fairly docile most of the time, but most of the cast is well aware that he is still a large and potentially dangerous animal that could do some damage if unhappy. Played straight when everyone mistakes a temperamental and vicious circus leopard for the tame Baby.



* CallASmeerpARabbit: Susan has bought what she calls a leopard, but is actually a jaguar, from Brazil, where leopards don't live but jaguars do.



* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Susan is one of the earliest examples of this character type in film. (Nathan Rabin, creator of the term, calls her the [[TropeMakers Trope Maker]], although Creator/CaroleLombard in ''Film/MyManGodfrey'' is actually an earlier example).

* {{Meganekko}}: David. His look was inspired by Creator/HaroldLloyd.



* PantheraAwesome: The titular Baby.
* PlayAlongPrisoner: David is put in a jail cell that the guard forgets to lock. He casually opens the door at one point, and even gets the guard to join him ''inside'' the cell, but makes no attempt to escape.



* UptightLovesWild

to:

* UptightLovesWildUptightLovesWild: In something of a variation, it's Wild who falls for Uptight first, Uptight for many reasons wanting nothing to do with her for a large part of the movie. Wild doesn't so much teach Uptight to loosen up as she does drag him kicking and screaming into it.

Added DiffLines:

* UnbuiltTrope: Susan Vance is recognised as one of the earliest examples of a ManicPixieDreamGirl. Except David doesn't ''want'' her in his life and she doesn't so much improve it as yank him bodily into her own.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: This is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Susan after David says something unspeakably rude about her to her face. She stops, gives that beautiful smile that only Katherine Hepburn could give, and launches herself into his arms, shouting, "Oh David! You really do love me!" David tries to play it cool, but finally admits it.

The next morning, Susan calls David on the telephone. Her brother in South America has mailed her a tame leopard called Baby, and she enlists David to help her transport it to her aunt's farm. Then, having made up her mind that David is the man she's going to marry--though he doesn't know it yet--she does whatever comes to mind to keep him there. It turns out that Susan's aunt is the potential museum donor, so they have to conceal David's identity ''and'' the presence of Baby, while also hunting for the intercostal clavicle, snatched up and buried by the dog.

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: David delivers one to Susan while she's swinging from the ladder.



* ComedicUnderwearExposure: The back of Susan's dress rips off, exposing her panties. David tries to cover it up with his hat, but Susan doesn't quite understand what's going on. Once she does, she makes him walk behind her.



* NonIndicativeName: The misleading movie title. Who would have thought that Baby was a leopard. And the story has little to do with any ''bringing up'', unless you count the drive from New York City to Connecticut.
