A Flash series created by David C. Lovelace, hosted on Website/{{Newgrounds}}. Started out as a single short with the titular babies trying to teach the alphabet (similar to a ''Series/SesameStreet'' spot, if the ''Sesame Street'' writers [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs all did crack]]), and veered off into a series with the characters as actual characters, with actual storylines and dialog and stuff... sort of. Definitely not safe for work, or anyone who has problems with {{Funny Animal}}s in sexual situations. Has also spawned a [[http://hamsterdunce.com/ webcomic]].

!!Provides examples of:
* TheAlcoholic: Cat's stepdad.
* AlcoholInducedIdiocy: Happens on numerous occasions.
* AnythingThatMoves: Puppy is, if allegedly straight, willing to screw just about anyone and anything, up to and including [[ScrewYourself himself]] and a computer's floppy drive.
* ArtifactTitle: The Retarded Animal Babies haven't actually been babies since the first episode.
* {{BFG}}: Puppy's solution to his marital difficulties.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: For the Show and Tell, Donkey brought three potaters, a bucket full of pelicans and Satan (who brought a snow globe).
* BrickJoke: Episode 18 has puppy (albeit unintentionally) pissing in Cat's face, something he said he would "try again later" in episode 3.
* CallBack: In Episdoe 20, Puppy calls Donkey "Cap'n Pants", which was the latter's Superhero persona from episode 4.
* CelebCrush: Hamster is obsessed with BruceWillis in all the ways. Including ''[[HoYay that]]'' way.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Hamster and Donkey.
* {{Cyberspace}}/DownTheRabbitHole: The characters get sucked into the Internet in episode 10. Everyone is dressed like the Programs in ''Film/{{Tron}}''.
* TheChewToy: Bunny usually gets killed or at least seriously injured.
* DeathByChildbirth: Puppy's mother, and [[FreakOut he did not take it well]] when this particular memory resurfaced.
* TheDitz: Donkey is the least intelligent of the bunch, and that's saying a lot.
* TheDevilIsALoser: Satan doesn't do anything particularly evil, he's terrified of doom, and in one episode Bunny kills him. He's not even very good at playing hackey-sack.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first two episodes don't have a plot, and Hamster is the main character instead of Cat. In the first one, Puppy wasn't in the part with the naked chick.
* EasterEgg: The episode titles are all clickable.
* EldritchAbomination: Bunny.
* FamousAncestor: It's revealed that Puppy is SeanConnery's son.
* GeniusDitz: Donkey may be the most retarded of the retarded animal babies, but he's an ace at playing skee-ball.
* HenpeckedHusband: Puppy for a short time after getting married.
* TheInternetIsForPorn:
-->'''Cat''': I don't know about any vaginas, but my stepdad just got a cable modem.\\
'''Puppy''': It'll have to do.
* KissingCousins: Puppy eventually marries his own cousin.
* {{Mondegreen}}: In one episode the gang sings/lip synchs "Rammstein" by Rammstein with the lyrics mondegreened.
-->Rammstein\\
I menched Brent\\
Rammstein\\
Flies stir rocks and I laughed\\
Rammstein\\
I'd flum in there
* LighterAndSofter: The "Magic Animal Babies" short.
** The spin-off strip "Friendly Animal Babies" also counts.
* LiteralMinded: Double subverted when Hamster brings a wild stag film to Puppy's bachelor's party. The film starts as if it's a nature documentary about a literal wild stag. Then Puppy freaks out, and Hamster stops the movie a split second after the topless woman appears.
* NegativeContinuity: Justified. [[spoiler:They grew up, and they realized how screwed up their world really is. Cat, who became a MadScientist of sorts, took them to [[EldritchLocation a place outside normal time and space]] where they could spend all eternity blissfully ignorant and optimistic.]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Averted like a motherfucker. MattGroening appears in several episodes, one episode features KurtCobain accidentally blowing his head off, and one episode features Lindsey Lohan having sex with Puppy and paying him for the privilege.
* NoMoreForMe: Donkey's reaction to seeing his future self.
* NumberOfTheBeast: In Episode 4, tapping 666 into the remote shows Satan eating children from a bowl. 999 gets you the same image upside-down.
* OverlyLongGag: The phone call at the end of episode 21.
* RuleOfFunny: A donkey can '''shit lightning'''!
* {{Satan}}: A recurring character.
* ScrewYourself: Puppy's totally unsurprising reaction to seeing ''his'' future self.
* ShoutOut: "Splunge" is a reference to a ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' sketch.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Hamster is saving himself for Bruce Willis.
* SixIsNine: Episode 4 features a fake TV screen as a bonus feature. Selecting Channel 666 leads to a video of Satan eating children from a bowl. Channel 999 is the same thing upside down.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Episode 4, which featured a TV remote control system to get to all sorts of extras.
* StraightMan: Cat
* SubvertedKidsShow: The original short, and the hidden mini-episode in 4.
* TakeThat: VideoGame/{{Pico}} (Newgrounds' mascot) watching the cartoon (captioned in AOL-speak): "I watched this on {{Newgrounds}}, and I hated it. It rips off HappyTreeFriends. Blam this piece of shit!" (viewer then gets an anvil dropped on his head)
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: As noted above, Bunny dies in (almost) every episode. The others sometimes die too (and the whole universe was even destroyed a couple times).
** Bunny even turned into a giant CosmicHorror and attempted to end it all himself. His exact words, upon the "opening" of episode "21"(see the end of episode 20)? "Son of a bitch." "Kenny" was trying to stay dead, that time.
* TronLines: The characters are depicted in Tron suits when they get sucked onto the Internet.
* YouAreWhatYouHate: Cat's openly homophobic, "queer"-bashing stepdad is gay. Cat's mom is actually a man in a wig.
