We only just met the child on November 12, 2019, but Baby Yoda already topped the Google trending searches for babies in all of 2019. As always, The Mandalorian‘s Baby Yoda was pretty much ruling the world in 2019, not just in the Star Wars universe but outside of it too. Baby Yoda even beat out some Game of Thrones characters (and D&D) in search trends in 2019. Read on for more details.
Baby Yoda Beat Baby Shark, Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Baby, & the Royal Baby
Baby Yoda took no prisoners and made no apologies. Despite just being revealed at the end of the year, The Child had already beaten out many other babies in Google search trends for 2019.
Here’s a look at Google’s 2019 Babies search lineup, listed as part of its 2019 trends webpage.
Yes, there’s Baby Yoda, trending above everyone else. The little tyke beat out the Royal Baby, who was born in May. The child beat Baby Shark (which was number 2), and beat Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby too. Baby Yoda beat “Cardi B baby” also. Baby Yoda pretty much beat everyone.
Let’s dig in more closely to Baby Yoda’s popularity as compared to the Royal baby and Kim Kardashian’s baby.
Baby Yoda is in blue, the Royal baby is in red, and Kim Kardashian’s baby is in yellow. It’s quite clear that Baby Yoda left everyone in the dust.
And why not? The Child had captured hearts all across the Disney Plus platform. Episode 7 might have been the best episode in The Mandalorian at that time, simply because of all those adorable Baby Yoda moments.
Since I’m still bitter about Game of Thrones‘ final season, I couldn’t help but share how many more searches Baby Yoda got in 2019 over David Benioff or D.B. Weiss. Baby Yoda is in red for this one.
Let’s go ahead and compare 2019 searches for Baby Yoda with Jon Snow, Daenerys, and Drogon. Look at the little cute baby that won:
Of course, no story about Baby Yoda would be complete without lots of Baby Yoda memes and tweets.
First, there’s this safety message in San Antonio, Texas that is perfect.
And the Texas Department of Transportation is joining in too.
He became the focus of pretty much all of Star Wars.
Minnesota tried to join in, whether or not it makes sense.
Everyone loves Baby Yoda.
The Child is so tiny and adorable…
It’s not a surprise that Baby Yoda took over the Internet and continued to hold onto that title with tiny, strong hands. The Child was the best thing that came to Star Wars in a long time. After the finale for The Mandalorian aired on December 27, it was tough for fans to wait for Season 2. But they had plenty of memes to help keep them company, and then many more Baby Yoda moments in 2020. Now we just have to wait a little longer for Season 3 to one day appear.
