    Baby Shark's Big Show


    Brooklyn "Baby" Shark also known as Ollie is a supporting character in the YouTube channel called Pinkfong and the titular main protagonist of the Nick Jr. series Baby Shark's Big Show and in Nickelodeon's 48th feature film Baby Shark's Big Movie.

    He is voiced by Kimiko Glenn in the original English version, who voices the titular character from Kiff, and Kim Seo-yeong in the Korean version.

    Why He Can't Doo-Doo-Doo-Doo Anything

    1. He pretty much only exists because of Pinkfong's infamous children's song "Baby Shark", which was not well-received by viewers, despite being the most viewed video on YouTube.
    2. He is extremely annoying as he constantly uses "doo" in his sentences.
    3. While his voice is decent, Kimiko Glenn was severely miscast as Baby Shark as she makes him sound WAY too feminine and teenage, like a 14-year-old girl rather than the 9-year-old shark he's supposed to be. Granted, this is the first male character she has ever voiced.
    4. He is shown to be uncharacteristically sadistic for a children's song in the Baby Shark music video. At one point, he tries to eat sapient fish, one of which is William, who would later become his best friend in the TV series.
    5. He is an absolute creator's pet as he is often overused in the Pinkfong videos alongside Pinkfong himself and Hogi.
    6. His design is a tad mediocre in the videos, and while his design in his own show doesn't look totally bad, it looks pretty bland and more like a Breadwinners reject. It might've been only just to cash in on Unikitty! or The Amazing World of Gumball.
    7. His appearance in the TV show is even worse than in the videos, as he starts to become even more annoying and obnoxious than he was in the videos. Additionally, he has the tendency to wander off from his home without his parents' permission and/or wind himself, William, and even his friends into really bad situations. What's worse about this is that he does not get any real punishment for doing this since his parents are oblivious about it, thus making him a Karma Houdini.
      • The TV show tries to make him the "sane" one when it comes to his and William's "odd couple" dynamic. Thanks to really bad writing though, they usually come off as equally stupid and idiotic, with the series premiere "All I Want for Fishmas" being the worst example. In that episode, without permission from their parents and right after hearing Santa Jaws is missing, they go on a trip to the Water Warp to the North Pole. With minimal convincing, they actually have the nerve to kidnap Santa, land him on a sled, and attack his penguin elves with Christmas snacks.
    8. Plot hole: In some Pinkfong media (e.g. Pinkfong and Baby Shark's Space Adventure), Baby Shark is shown to be able to breathe and outright swim above water by floating. How can he do that? There is no official explanations or implications on how he's able to do it.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. His design in the TV series and the videos is cute and sometimes passable, despite looking somewhat bland.
    2. Kimiko Glenn and Kim Seo-yeong do decent jobs voicing him in the English and Korean dubs of the TV series respectively, despite the former being miscast.
      • Seo-yeong and Glenn also do great at singing.
      • It also helps that Baby Shark is the first boy character Glenn has voiced.
    3. He is slightly more tolerable in the videos.
      • He also is a much better character in Baby Shark's Big Movie.
