Shires Babies is an American computer-animated television series featuring toddler versions of the Shiresland characters that began airing on Shires Junior and Shires Channel on March 23, 2018 and is aimed at a target audience of children from ages 4 to 7. It is a reboot of the original 1983–1990 animated series of the same name.
The show retains several of the younger incarnations of the classic Shires characters seen in the previous series, including Baby Matthew, Baby Michelle, Baby Boofy, Baby Douglas, and Baby Skipper. The series also sees the second appearance of Penny the Granny (now known as "Miss Granny", short for "Grancette"), and the first appearance of a new Shires Babies member named Summer Lion, a White and Purple Lioness Cub.
Recurring guest stars include Stinky and Clammy, Greedy Cat (Called Greedy Kitten in the Show), and Kylie the Koala from Matthew and the Monster Makers.
