The show begins with the view of Baby's diaper and the title, Go, Baby! printed on. The narrator then precedes to introduce Baby and the "mission" baby is attempting to complete. As seen in the Music episode, Baby attempts to play the drums with his head and the narrator then asks the viewer to "show" baby how to play the drums correctly. In doing so, the viewer is given two to three seconds before Baby continues and plays the drums correctly. Baby goes through various complications in one episode, like the drums to the guitar. In doing so, the viewer is encouraged to play along and help Baby [4]
