Baby Bob (CBS 2002-2003, Adam Arkin, Joely Fisher)

Baby Bob

Sitcom Baby Bob was about publicist Walter and housewife Lizzy who think their six-month old son Bob is an ordinary (but, of course, cute) child, they are shocked to learn he has the vocabulary of an adult.

Clearly inspired by the Look Who’s Talking movies but Bob actually first popped up a couple of years before in commercials for an internet company and here Bob really does talk (via CGI to make it look like he is talking anyway). After the poorly received show ended Bob went back into the commercial game.

Of the 14 episodes made the final three remain unaired.
