Since his debut, Baby Yoda, the small Yoda-like character featured in The Mandaloriana TV series set in the Star Wars universe, has had the internet smitten. Baby Yoda is the fan-chosen name for this lil guy, who is not to be confused with Master Yoda. In the new Disney+ series The Mandalorian, he is referred to as The Child. Baby Yoda looking up memes range from wholesome to dark to absurd, all with the cuteness of a tiny Yoda.

Many Baby Yoda looking up memes portray situations in which a child is looking up to an authority figure. Baby Yoda’s expression of earnestness has led to captions about kids patiently waiting for their turn to speak.

Baby Yoda Meets Master Yoda

Name a more iconic duo. I’ll wait. While Baby Yoda and Master Yoda may not interact in The Mandalorian because they live during different time periods, at least they do get to meet in these memes.
