How do you make an animal instantly cute and endearing? Have it being followed by babies. Usually these babies are miniature versions of the parent.

One can make any kind of predator into a monster by targeting either the parent or one of the children, but a subversion is to give said predator babies of its own.

Don't you dare get in between the mother and her children.

Examples of Children in Tow include:

Film --Animated


Video Games

Western Animation

Web Comics

  • In Sluggy Freelance, the psychological effect of ducklings following their mother is so strong that they are used as an emergency barrier during a car chase. Even the bad guys treat them like they are a completely impenetrable wall and make no attempt to continue the chase once they are cut off.
