The Mandalorian Has Blessed the Internet With Baby Yoda Memes. These Are the Best.
Adorable, he is, so memes, you made. While The Mandalorian is an intriguing Disney+ show in its own right, no character has risen to internet superstardom quite like Baby Yoda—a technically unnamed 50-year-old baby who's just too damn cute to focus on anything else. Whether he’s simply hanging out in his egg-like crib or just making gigantic eyes at the camera, Baby Yoda has become an icon of purity—a rare moment where we cross the internet aisle to simply say, “This is good.”
Shrouded in mystery, there’s still a ton to be revealed about the character and the connection it might have to The Force. In the meantime, the internet has co-opted Baby Yoda as the Baby of the Moment. Move along, Baby Groot stans. No time for you, Jack Jack. Baby Yoda is somehow age appropriate for AARP and yet, still infinitely cuddly and ready for a big squeeze hug.
As his fame has risen, the internet has turned him into an absolute treasure of a meme. The premise? Just celebrating the hell out of a pure, green character. Enjoy it while it lasts because no new star rises without being something terrible being uncovered. Is Baby Yoda a racist? Did he once kick a dog? Tell, only time will.
May Baby Yoda remain good and only have wonderful things happen to him. It's a rarity to come across an image on the internet and it only be used for good. We needed you for so long, Baby Yoda. Never go away. Never change.
