Baby Beethoven is the 10th Baby Einstein video in the series to be released. It is the fourth music episode from the series, and presented in a similar format to Baby Mozart and Baby Bach with musical compositions accompanying footage of toys and other novelty items. As the name suggests, the classical music of Baby Beethoven was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven, albeit rearranged with softer instruments by Bill Weisbach. It was reissued on November 25, 2003 in the Bronze Age (the same day as Numbers Nursery was released) and edited out the "Thank You" credit that was used in all of videos in the original style packaging layout. It was re-released in 2004 with some changes, then again in 2008, and then as the 4th Discovery Kit in 2010. The video is a companion piece to the said two videos, and Baby Shakespeare, another video that focuses on classical music originally written by a composer, and another video that only features re-orchestrated classical music from Ludwig van Beethoven. This also the last episode of the series that's about classical music to be based on a composer since Baby Vivaldi was not released on video.

Trivia[]

  • Despite being named after and dedicated to the composer, this is in fact the fourth Baby Einstein video to feature Beethoven's music.
  • This is the first Baby Einstein video to use a new and more structured packaging layout as opposed to the one used on prior videos. This was however the only video to use this specific packaging design.
  • This is the first appearance of Emily.
  • This is the first video to have a Toys courtesy of during the end credits.
  • This is the first video to feature a new video tutorial titled About Baby Einstein.
    • However it is slightly different than how it was featured in the next three videos (Baby Neptune, Baby MacDonald, Numbers Nursery), and it was shown at the beginning rather than at the end on the 2002 VHS release.
  • This is the last video in the music trio series: the other two are Baby Mozart and Baby Bach.
  • On top of that this video is the sequel to Baby Shakespeare.
  • This is the first video to have June Privett as a puppeteer, even though she was uncredited in the closing credits until the 2008 re-release.
  • Some of the pieces are not on the Baby Beethoven - Concert for Little Ears CD due to being made in 1999. But, some additional pieces (not all of them) were available on Playtime Music Box, Baby Noah, and Playdate Fun.
  • This is the first appearance of Baby Beethoven The Giraffe in PlaySoup form as well as the first appearance of Baby Lamb in cartoon form.
  • The only new puppet introduced in this video is Baby Beethoven The Giraffe while the rest were recycled from the previous video, Baby Newton. All the puppets from this video later return in Numbers Nursery except for Isaac the Lion.
  • This was the last video by Julie Aigner-Clark until the discovery kits.
    • On top of that, this is also the last video Julie Aigner-Clark involved in until Numbers Nursery. (Not counting her founder's credit in the next two videos and her narrations in the 2009 release of one of the said videos).
  • This is the last video to be filmed in Lone Tree.
  • This is the last appearance of Lily in 2008.
  • This is the second and last original video to be released in the Disney Merger Era (excluding the Neighborhood Animals and World Animals reissues).
    • Ironically, all the puppets that appeared in the previous video in the era appear in this as well
  • The illustration photos used throughout the video are taken from See and Spy Counting, See And Spy Shapes, and Jane’s Animal Expedition, although most of them are heavily modified.
