Sigh. You knew it had to happen. Someone took one of the greatest things about this decade and ruined it.
To be fair, Kyle Mooney is usually pretty damn good with his characters on Saturday Night Live. But the show’s attempt to make Baby Yoda into a swaggering, trash-talking, “sliding-into-my-DMs” bragging Hollywood star winds up feeling a bit obvious as the punchline.
Not helping is the make-up which makes Mooney into a good Yoda but not the BABY Yoda we’ve come to love, the cute little creature with the giant eyes, taste for blue frogs, and squeaky exclamations of glee.
Besides, what has Baby Groot done to anyone other than dance its way into our hearts?
