Young M.A. Plays a Rapping Bat on This Cartoon Network Show

Who doesn't want to hear raps about echolocation??

The worlds of rap and children’s cartoon programming collided recently when Young M.A popped in for a guest starring role on We Baby Bears.

The episode in question (“Bears in the Dark”) aired in January, but fans only just discovered the unexpected collab and caused the clip to go viral on Twitter.

“You mean to tell me Cartoon Network was like ‘We need a voice actor fo ra bat character on We Baby Bears’ and somebody in the office was like ‘LETS GET YOUNG MA!’?” the user who shared the video wrote.

And yes, the bat absolutely raps.

Celebrities of all stripes have been known to take random voice acting roles, especially in recent years. And Young M.A’s turn as Pip the rapping bat isn’t her first foray into acting, as she also appeared in several episodes of Mr. Robot in 2019.

Still, there’s bound to be something wild about sitting your kids down in front of the TV to watch their favorite new cartoon only to hear someone who’s normally rapping about decidedly non-child-friendly things instead spitting rhymes about echolocation.

Although as some pointed out, this actually isn’t foreign territory for Cartoon Network, as their shows have often had voice cameos from musicians, including rappers.

Hey, if it’s fun and it works, it’s a win for everyone — and this one seems like a win.
