Babies and Beasts Take a Walk on the Wild Side in Two New Discovery Family Channel Series Babies Behaving Badly and Beasts Behaving Badly

(Silver Spring, Md.) – Discovery Family Channel today announced BABIES BEHAVING BADLY and BEASTS BEHAVING BADLY, two hilarious original series from Barcroft Productions featuring unfiltered real-life moments of mischief from the littlest humans and adorable animals alike. Each 30-minute episode showcases silly and shocking user-generated content, woven with cutting commentary from comedians offering their own side-stitching insight about these little rascals. These cheeky and downright outrageous series will debut this Fall, only on Discovery Family Channel.

“Prepare to guffaw and grimace as babies and beasts show us who is really in charge,” said Tom Cosgrove, general manager of Discovery Family Channel. “Blending the adorable with the aggravating, BABIES BEHAVING BADLY and BEASTS BEHAVING BADLY is a hilarious glimpse into very funny family moments, guaranteed to make the whole household laugh out loud.”

They may look sweet and innocent, but these tiny tykes are up to no good! Set to premiere on Monday, September 7 at 8/7c, BABIES BEHAVING BADLY highlights the humorous highs and lows of parenthood. Filled with both precocious and precious moments—captured firsthand by parents—BABIES BEHAVING BADLY shows when kids transform from cuddly and cute to pure comedy. Notable stories featured include: a budding artist who uses his little sister as his paint canvas; a devoted hockey fan who has a major league meltdown when his parents root for the Detroit Red Wings; and a little boy who is ‘exasperated’ by the idea of having another sibling.

But babies aren’t the only ones misbehaving on Discovery Family Channel— BEASTS BEHAVING BADLY is a hysterical sister-series about animals acting up and wreaking havoc for humans around them. With brazen beasts moonlighting as naughty trespassers and causing noisy nuisances, BEASTS BEHAVING BADLY will premiere on Thursday, October 1 at 8/7c. From a bear who takes a dip in the neighborhood swimming pool to a raccoon who invites himself into the kitchen, there is no shortage of mirthful misconduct in this series debut.


BABIES BEHAVING BADLY and BEASTS BEHAVING BADLY are produced for Discovery Family Channel by Barcroft Productions, LLC. For Barcroft Productions, Sam Barcroft and Julian Thomas are executive producers. For Discovery Family Channel, Liam Monschein is supervising producer, Sarah Davies is vice president of production, Tom Cosgove is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
