History: (X-Babies I#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Mojoverse's Mr. Veech usurped Mojo's control and took over, replacing Mojo's X-Babies program with a kinder, gentler "Adorable X-Babies" show that taught wholesome lessons starring a group of newly-created toddler-aged X-Babies including Nighty-Nightcrawler and others.

(X-Babies I#1) - While filming an episode of the "Adorable X-Babies," Nighty-Nightcrawler joined the other Adorable X-Babies in a vegetable feast.

(X-Babies I#3) - Nighty-Nightcrawler filmed another episode of the "Adorable X-Babies," in which he helped convince "Colossus" to overcome his fear of getting a haircut by agreeing to accompany him to the barber. He was later sent by Veech with the other Adorable X-Babies against the true X-Babies. Helping his teammate Stormy defeat the X-Babies' Storm, Nighty-Nightcrawler turned his attention towards the X-Babies' Kitty Pryde before the X-Babies' Wolverine arrived and slashed Nighty-Nightcrawler and the others to ribbons, only for Veech to utilize their protoplasmic forms to not only restore the Adorable X-Babies but create more of them.

(X-Babies I#4) - Nighty-Nightcrawler and the new army of Adorable X-Babies were sent against the true X-Babies and their allies but Nighty-Nightcrawler was quickly touched by the X-Babies' Rogue and his powers were absorbed by her. Rogue then teleported around the battlefield using Nighty-Nightcrawler as a bludgeon to hit other Adorable X-Babies but he quickly recovered and swarmed Planet Terry. Eventually, the true X-Babies' Rogue absorbed the powers of Veech's ally Spiral and opened a teleportational portal that sucked in Nighty-Nightcrawler and the entirety of the Adorable X-Babies.

(Exiles III#8 (fb)) - Arriving on Earth-32518, Nighty-Nightcrawler and the other Adorable X-Babies founded Xavier's Playtime Fun School for Gifted Youngsters, where they lived and spent time together over picnics and story time. During one such outing, Nighty-Nightcrawler teleported around eating donuts as the other Adorable X-Babies had fun.

(Exiles III#8 - BTS) - When Nighty-Nightcrawler's former teammate Wolvie was forced to give mental testimony of his life leading up to joining the reality-hopping Exiles, a memory of Nighty-Nightcrawler teleporting and eating donuts upside down was displayed.
