Baby memes and videos have been a staple of the Internet since the very beginning of viral videos. From the famous “Dancing Baby,” to “Charlie Bit My Finger,” to “Success Kid,” and some of the most famous images to have ever hit the web. These funny baby meme pictures of famous babies in history (OK, maybe “infamous” is more accurate here), will have you laughing like crazy.
Be it a video, a picture, or a meme, these babies will tickle you pink and brighten your day with their cute smiles and baby giggles. Babies are innocent, squishy, adorable, and joyous enough in and of themselves. They’re a constant source of fun, family-friendly entertainment that can be enjoyed by all. So buckle your seat belts and get ready for some adorable and hilarious babies coming your way in the form of these baby memes.
Two Babies Who Talk in Baby
Remixes and other videos were made immediately, most notably by comedian Patton Oswalt. With over 70 million views, the video has made the babies involved some of the most Internet famous babies in history. It’s like they’re making fun of us. In the right state of mind, this video could lead you to an existential crisis.

The Scared Baby
His name is Emerson, and the popular .gif came from a viral video off of YouTube featuring little Emerson playing happily with his throne of toys, that is, until his mother would blow her nose. This would scare the baby temporarily, reacting with such surprise that the Internet immediately fell in love with him.
He’s arguably the cutest baby on this list. I will fight you on this.

This Little Guy
He was also one of the first babies to go viral once YouTube began, garnering over 150 million views across multiple videos, getting on countless news stations and even being the choice clip shown to The Queen of England upon her visiting YouTube headquarters in 2008.
The Charlie Bit My Finger Kids
And all these kids had to do was be insanely adorable.
In 2007, YouTube user HDCYT’s video featured a 1-year-old biting his 3-year-old brother’s finger, as the older one complains about how much that hurts, kindly asking his brother not to bite his finger in the most politely British way imaginable.
Once this took off, Sammy became extremely common throughout the Internet as a picture anyone can use to express their excitement at something relatively mundane.
And once he was made into an Advice Animal (first seen in this form as uploaded to Reddit), much like most other Advice Animal memes, he became ubiquitous around the web.
Single Ladies Dancing Baby
Unless you’re Scumbag Steve, you only have a matter of weeks before that goes away.

The Stairs Baby
The Dark Side Baby
Various video manipulations were made once the thing went viral, and the video was soon given the Imperial Death March and various other songs that made the child’s victory over the car seem so… evil. Yet adorable.

And the Rest of the Baby Memes
Sometimes, it’s to celebrate, as with the unsavory yet hilarious Third World Success Kid. Due to his circumstances, he relishes in the small victories, like surviving malaria and not knowing who Snooki is:
Sometimes, the meme kid’s gesture and expression serves as a warning. The How Do I Put This? Babygives cautionary advice to family, friends, and strangers:
Baby Godfather is also scowling and upset – but adorable, all dressed up in a widdle tuxedo with those chubby widdle cheeks – and not about to take it lying down:
Bombs Away Baby
Once people saw a picture of this baby looking like it’s yelling orders out of a foxhole or in the middle of a tirade, they started making all kinds of photo manipulations putting the baby in different situations, the most popular of which is one of him in an army helmet. Some people, though, even put him in a series of film situations (a 7-minute long video montage of which can be seen on this video here).
According to KnowYourMeme.com and some random jerks on the Internet, the kid’s dad was a graphic designer (unlike anyone else on the Internet) and a photographer. He threw some Photoshops of the “Crazy Mean Baby” online along with the original to do that thing that street performers do by throwing a few dollars into the guitar case so it looks like someone’s already given – only for memes. The guy seeded his own meme, which is smart.
It’s one of the most recognizable and commonly known images on the Internet, and an adorable picture of a baby, who is now probably old enough to be embarrassed by its existence.
