'''''Baby Songs''''' is a DirectToVideo series of MusicVideos aimed at young children, especially toddlers and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin babies]]. Created in 1985 by Amy Weintraub and Brooks [=McEwan=], together with music by famed children's musician Hap Palmer, and inspired by the music videos on {{MTV}}, ''Baby Songs'' features songs and videos that focus on subjects relatable to its target audience, including walking for the first time, taking a bath, and potty training. Each video begins with a short animated segment of a baby boy (often with his CanineCompanion) doing something related to the song.

There are 12 videos in total, not including Hap Palmer's other works.

* Baby Songs
* More Baby Songs
* Even More Baby Songs
* Baby Songs: Baby's Busy Day
* Baby Songs: ABC, 123 Colors and Shapes
* Baby Songs: Good Night
* Baby Songs: Animals
* Baby Songs: Sing Together
* Baby Songs: Silly Songs
* Baby Songs: Rock & Roll
* Baby Songs: Christmas
* Baby Songs: John Lithgow's Kid Size Concert

!!The ''Baby Songs'' series contains examples of:

* BigFriendlyDog: "Baby's Little Doggie" from ''Baby Songs'' (a fur-suited actor much like Barkley from ''Series/SesameStreet'', to be exact). The animated boy's dog also counts.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: "Sitting in a High Chair" from ''Baby Songs'', which uses both a real chimpanzee and a monkey-suited actor.
* GuiltyPleasure
* InnocentAliens: "Rub-a-Dub" from ''Baby Songs'' has an alien crash-landing and taking a bath with a boy (in a separate tub, [[FreudWasRight mind you]]).
* LivingToys: "Raggedy Rag Doll Friend" from ''Even More Baby Songs'' has a girl dream about shrinking down to the size of her CaptainErsatz RaggedyAnn, which then comes to life and begins playing with her.
* LongRunner: Since 1985.
* NobodyPoops: Averted, since most of the target audience still needs to learn about toilet training.
* SecurityBlanket: The aptly-named "Security".
