Baby Geniuses

Synopsis: Dr. Elena Kinder and Dr. Heap work for BABYCO, the world's leading manufacturer in baby products. What the public doesn't know, however, is that Dr. Kinder and Dr. Heap are secretly working on cracking the code to "baby talk" which is actually a highly sophisticated language which allows babies to communicate the knowledge of the secrets of the universe with which they are born. Problems arise when Sly, the smartest of the babies, escapes from the lab and unites the babies of the outside world to help free the babies trapped in the lab. Kinder and Heap must find Sly before it is too late.

He's out.

What do you mean?

Sylvester. He's escaped.


Maximum alert.

Damn it!

He's been spotted on the mezzanine.

Secure perimeters.

Alert topside. Initiate probers. Move!

Move! Move!

He's exiting the building. Move out.

There he is. Nail him.

He's heading for the maze.

We've got him.

Cut him off!

Toward the fountain.

There he goes. He's headed back.

Coming back, toward the fountain.

He's approaching the fountain.

Seal him off.

We've got him.

Be careful. He's dangerous.

There's nowhere to go, Sly.

Give it up.



The rest of you, come with me.

Check the perimeters.

Nice try, pal.

Take him.

Stop him!

That'll be quite enough, Sylvester.

There you are, doc.

He nearly made it this time.

Tomorrow you will explain how

a mere toddler manages to escape...

...from a laboratory

25 stories below ground.

What kind of kids you breeding?

Nearly blew us away with karate.


Once again we demonstrate

the superiority of the Kinder method.

Take him to the secret lab.

Operation Twincomp, access requested.

Analysing voiceprint.

Review proiect in summary form.

Twincomp... designed to prove the superiority

of the Kinder method of child rearing.

To accomplish this, two years ago,

twin brothers S ylvester and Whit...

...were born to a specially selected

surrogate mother.

Director of operations,

Dr. E lena Kinder, arranged...

...for Whit to be adopted

into the home of her niece...

...and her niece's husband,

Dr. Dan Bobbins.

Sly was placed in the Babyco

Hyper-Developmental Habitat... be raised under the guidance

of the Kinder method.

Summarize operational protocol.

/t is imperative for the integrity

of this experiment...

...that no one ever discover

that Sly and Whit are twins...

...especially the boys themselves.

A comparative evaluation of the boys

will occur by age 6... establish conclusively the

superiority of the Kinder method.

Updating experiment log.

Last night, Baby Sylvester made his way

up 25 stories, undetected...

...escaping from his habitat

in a secret lab.

Even though it now appears

that Sly cannot be controlled...

...Dr. Kinder will be pleased by this

display of skill and intelligence.

I, however, remain apprehensive.

Under the guidance of its chairman,

Dr. E lena Kinder...

...Baby Geniuses /nc.

and its parent company Babyco...

...are the world's largest manufacturer

of products for the baby.

Babyco is also a vital

charitable organization...

...which sponsors orphanages

in 10 countries around the globe.

The latest one dedicated iust a week

ago, right here in Pasadena.

Today we are deeper

in Dr. Kinder's debt...

...for the extraordinary gift.

Joyworld, the world's largest

indoor amusement park.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you

the founder and CEO of Babyco... friend, Dr. Elena Kinder.

Thank you.

Thank you.

I'm gonna break out.

You can't get hives just because

your aunt comes into the room.

I can't help it. She starts lying.

I start breaking out.

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you all

for coming here today.

We at Babyco believe that babies

have a language of their own.

We're dedicated to proving it.

Our research in infant potentiality

is the model of the field.

But in the final analysis...

...the simple answer as to

why we do what we do is...

...we love babies.

Loves babies.

Loves money.

All right, ladies and gentlemen.

Let's have a party.

Welcome to Joyworld.

Look, it's a roller coaster!

So the park, of course,

will be free for all children.

But the money collected

from adults...

...will go to the Babyco

Worldwide Orphanage Foundation.

Is this a terrific lady, or what?

This is kind of great.

She does a lot of good.

She's good at stealing your ideas.


Has anyone lost a baby?

A very big baby?

Ladies and gentlemen...

...Baby Bunting!

That looks like your illustration.

That looks like Boo Boo Boy

from Baby's Good Day.

Bunting came into this world

just last week.

Now, everything is fully controlled... our computerized command centre.

Hiya, fellas.

And now go to crossover mode.

Okay, Richard.

Give me Baby Bunting vocal.

What's your name, little girl?

Erin. My name is Erin.

What a sweet name.

Give Baby Bunting a big hug.

And cue burp...

Well! Think about changing his diaper.

Come on, honey. This way.

Kids, good news!

Robotic Santa and the robotic elves...

...are waiting to greet you

at the robotic North Pole.

/n fact, we have robotic entertainers

located throughout the park...

...all controlled from our

central command centre.

Okay, let's cue up for Robo-Zoo.

And here we have the world's

most unique animal farm.

We call it Robo-Zoo.

Each child gets a remote control... control

their own robotic animal.

Why wouldn't you have

real animals in your zoo?

Good heavens! Anybody could do that.

Plastic zoo.

That's definitely Aunt Elena's idea.

At least she could have introduced you.

She steals from your books,

from your research.

/'m flattered.

She knows about your breakthrough

in infant language.

She'll probably try to steal that too.

You make her sound

like Attila the Hun.

Honey, we're barely able to afford your

research facility and the preschool.

She does this all the time.

/t's iust not right.

I think she's just goal-oriented.

Her goal is to take

over the world. I know.

I lived with her

for more than half my life.

And look how great you turned out.


Where are you going

with those children?

What children? These are not children.

These are plumbers.

They're gonna help me fix the sink.

Good-luck kiss.

With this house, you need more than luck.

Okay, let's get to work.

Just as you thought, our line

of expandable infant clothing...

...has elicited a tremendous

response in our first pass.

Huge numbers from the Kmart

and Wal-Mart shoppers.

That should increase our market share.

Put it in production.

Tell me of the new ones.

How many possibles?

- Eight show potential.

- Eight out of 500?

Elena, statistically, genius occurs

once in 10,000 individuals.

We expected only five geniuses

from the Pasadena Orphanage.

We've got eight.

Don't tell me how well we're doing.

Our orphanages and secret labs

are costing us 200 million a year.

The sole purpose of these orphanages is

to allow us to cull out the geniuses...

...the natural leaders.

- We'll do better.

I'll settle for a few more

like Sylvester.

Look at what that crackerjack did.

All our emphasis has been on

keeping the world out of a secret lab.

No one ever considered

the possibility of a baby escaping.

Just look at this wonderful world we've

created for our babies to grow up in.

Why would anyone

want to escape from here?

The one who did is in the work station,

no doubt planning his next escape.

Hello, Sylvester.

- What's he constructing?

- We don't know.

He builds all kinds

of extraordinary things.

For all kinds of extraordinary purposes.
