Dancing BabyDancing Baby, The  - Tiny pink-skinned baby in a diaper seen on episodes of the legal comedy drama ALLY MCBEAL/FOX/1997-2002. The ghostly Dancing Baby frolicked in front of female attorney Ally McBeal during times of stress or introspection.

Called "Mr. Huggy" (a.k.a. "Baby Cha-Cha") by Ally), the baby was the living embodiment of Ally's biological clock come to haunt her. It once threw a spear at Ally (Freudian symbolism?). Ally's psychiatrist Dr. Tracey Clark advised her to give the baby a kick in the patootie the next time it manifested itself. Mr. Huggy's visits were accompanied by the Ooga-Chaka sounds of the song "Hooked on a Feeling."

The baby first appeared on episode No. 12 "Cro-Magnon" and resurfaced on episode No. 18 "The Playing Field." The Dancing Baby was originally discovered on the Internet and used on a number of TV spots including Blockbuster Videos commercials.

The 3D Studio Max and Character from Kinetix (Ron K. Lussier 3D Artist/Animator) originally created the Dancing Baby for demo files that shipped with the product. The Ally McBeal "Net Dance" files were done by Encore Video and Liquid Light.
