While in most movies, the new members of the family (be it Lyle, Stuart Little, or Paddington) are generally kind-hearted and very sustaining.

Well, on the other hand, the Boss Baby, AKA Ted Templeton Jr. is very well-versed in the ways of society as he is no angel like the others. However, when he is not on his duty, he causes chaos in the family by throwing enough tantrums.
