The film has an animated Robin Harris (voiced by Faizon Love) taking his new girlfriend Jamika (voiced by Vanessa Bell Calloway) and her son Leon (voiced by Wayne Collins, Jr.) to an AmusementPark called Fun World. This would be all well and good, but when Jamika is asked by her friend Bébé to watch her kids for the day, he's forced to take along Bébé's Kids, who are nothing shortof (and quite a bit ''beyond'') obnoxious brats who basically wreak havoc through the whole park. HilarityEnsues.

Despite bombing at the box office, it has become a CultClassic over time. However, it also spawned a SNES game so bad ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames rated it the worst game it's ever reviewed]], so, um, you can take that as a good or bad thing.

[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXvPZxavVXc Based on a comedy sketch]] made popular by the late stand-up comic Robin Harris, ''Bebe's Kids'' became the first animated movie to feature an all-black cast. It was released in 1992 and was directed by Bruce W. Smith, who would later create ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily'' for Disney in 2001 and animate the villain for the ''second'' animated feature to have an all-black cast, ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''.
