Hulaing Babies is fun and nothing else.
It's a psychedelic trip, crazy, wacky and ultimately meaningless.
Narratively there isn't much going on than what's said in the synopsis, but that's hardly why it's enjoyable.
Hyper condensed fun and aesthetically dreamlike.
There isn't much animation in terms of frames, but the colour palette and editing make up for this. Its high energy editing keeps things moving and entertaining. The characters have personalities that bounce off each other - sometimes literally thanks to the editing. Everything looks fantastic. Character designs work in perfect synergy with one another whilst complementing the dreamy background art.
The comedy is character-driven and visually spastic.
are mostly multiple things happening at a given time. 2 characters having a conversation about something random and in the background, other characters will be doing their own thing. Either playing cat and mouse or bouncing off the walls. At least 1 thing is funny.
The ED is banter.
Just some dad playing a ukulele sharing some humorously dark stories about his failed marriage and daughter issues, maintaining a light-hearted tone while laughing about it, that feels totally out of place and it's fucking hilarious. Simultaneously acts as a break to calm you down and prepare you for the next episode, do not skip it.
Watch it, you'll like it.
