It was followed by two sequels. ''Look Who's Talking Too'' (1990) added Creator/RoseanneBarr as the voice of Mikey's newborn sister Julie. In ''Look Who's Talking Now'' (1993), the children have grown to speaking age and so we see things instead from the new dogs of the Ubriacco family, Rocks (Creator/DannyDeVito) and Daphne (Creator/DianeKeaton). They didn't fare as well as the first one, with the first sequel even getting two Razzie nominations. Also spawned a short-lived SpiritualSuccessor sitcom, ''Baby Talk'', which ran for two seasons from 1991-1992. While the sitcom was a different continuity and none of the film's characters appear, the characters were created by Amy Heckerling, who wrote and directed the first film.
