- “Who are you?"
"Let's just say I'am the boss.”
- ―Tim asking Boss Baby about who he is
Boss Baby is the titular protagonist of the film The Boss Baby.
Boss Baby is a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, carries a briefcase and is on a secret mission to discover why babies are losing their market share of love. In order to accomplish his mission, he will have to join forces with his big brother, Tim.
The Boss Baby was one of the babies created at the Baby Corp, the place where all babies in the world were born from. However during a sorting process, the machine failed to tickle him and he was sorted into the "management" section instead of family section, making him a boss baby. He was then given a suit along with equipments and trained to work at the company. During this time, he came to idolize the Super Colossal Big Fat Boss Baby, once a legendary baby who was bestowed the company's highest position and was given an exclusive office.
After working there for an undetermined amount of time, he became known as the Boss Baby and was sent on a mission by his superior, the Big Boss Baby, to find out why humans adore puppies more than babies.
