*** At the end of the episode that all changes. (Also, despite the Doctor's efforts to seem like he never appeared, Alfie's first actual spoken English word is Doctor.)

** Back once again in the episode "Closing Time", where the Doctor spends much of the episode translating a baby for his father, Craig. Incidentally, the baby calls Craig and the Doctor 'Not Mum', everyone else Peasants and himself "[[DeathbringerTheAdorable Stormageddon]], [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dark Lord Of All]]."

** Back once again in Proving that he can ''indeed'' speak baby is the episode "Closing Time", where the Doctor spends much of the episode translating a baby for his father, Craig. Incidentally, Craig.
-->'''Craig:''' He's called Alfie.\\
'''Alfie:''' ''*babbling which can be heard in between
the baby calls Craig and the Doctor 'Not Mum', everyone else Peasants and himself conversation*''\\
'''The Doctor:''' Yes, he likes that; "Alfie". Though, personally, he prefers to be called
"[[DeathbringerTheAdorable Stormageddon]], [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dark Lord Of All]]." All]]".\\
'''Craig:''' Sorry, ''what?!''\\
'''The Doctor:''' That's what he calls himself.\\
'''Craig:''' How'd you know that?\\
'''The Doctor:''' I speak Baby.\\
...\\
'''The Doctor:''' No! He's your dad! You can't just call him ''"Not Mum"''!\\
'''Craig:''' Not Mum?!\\
'''The Doctor:''' That's you. ''"Also Not Mum"''; that's me. And everybody else is...\\
'''Alfie:''' ''*babbles*''\\
'''The Doctor:''' ...''"Peasants"''. That's unfortunate.

* Throughout the ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' episode, "[[Recap/TheLoudHouseS1E26StudyMuffinHomespun Homespun]]", Lincoln and his sisters worry about their run-down house being destroyed by a tornado during a warning, so they all share their favorite memories of the house to learn to appreciate what they have. When it's one-year-old Lily's turn to share her favorite memory, Luan serves as her translator.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter'' episode, "The Legend of Ponce de L'Otter", when the Otter kids need an idea on how to retrieve Ponce de L'Otter's lost telescope from the bottom of Lake Hoohaw, Baby Butter has an idea. However, because she can't really talk yet, her idea, which involves her using her diaper to absorb the water of the lake, is shown in an ImagineSpot. Unfortunately, because Peanut and Jelly are a few years older than her, they are unable to understand her.

** Returns again in "The Girl Who Died", when the Twelfth Doctor translates a Viking baby's worries. Unlike the previous occasions, it's played for drama, not laughs.

* In ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', toddler Sunny spoke in subtitled gibberish. Her speech was translated in the books.
* Apparently, in ''DiaryOfAWimpyKid,'' Manny knows several toddler slang terms. The only one we hear is "Ploopy," which Manny apparently considers quite offensive.

* This is one of the hallmarks of ''Webcomic/{{Kurami}}''; the titular infant's "speech" consists solely of "gek gek" and variations thereof.

* Stewie on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' may be an example, [[NegativeContinuity depending on how the writers feel that day.]]

]] Stewie can speak perfectly, yet the family and most other adults are presumed to not being able to understand him (only Brian and most side characters can understand him). It gets lampshaded at one point where an angry Meg demands to know who was talking about her and everyone immediately blames Stewie, causing him to say "Oh, so now everyone understands me?" WordOfGod also says that everyone ''can'' understand Stewie, but choose to ignore him most of the time.

Creepily, this might have an element of TruthInTelevision. Studies show that babies actually understand far more words than they’re actually able to speak because they’re so uncoordinated. It's called passive vocabulary. So for the first few years of life, it's very similar to communicating with more intelligent pets.
