Analysis of Baby Shark’s Characters
The Baby Shark song has an accurate touch on the experience that the shark family goes through in the story. The main character, Baby Shark, is one that many people believe in. He makes the entire plot more exciting with feeding habits that can be made with children’s fingers. Baby Shark demonstrates the limited attention that little sharks get immediately they are born. Unlike human beings, they have to learn to swim fast, hunt for prey, or starve to death.
The characters of Mommy shark and Daddy shark imply that the male is more mature and has a physically larger body. This was produced for the sake of viewers, especially children, to make them understand the authority that fathers have. However, sharks are a species that may result in the mother shark being larger than the father.
In the dance moves that play along with the show’s music, grandma shark and grandpa shark are different from mommy and daddy sharks. The singers curl their fingers at the knuckle to demonstrate a lack of teeth for the grandparents. The animation is more interesting because the toothless old sharks continue to hunt, even though they do not have teeth.
