Baby Smap is a five-minute-long spin-off or sidequel of SMAPxSMAP that has been airing on Sunday nights at 1:30 a.m. from April 15, 2007.
The program mainly features unaired scenes from SMAPxSMAP and scenes from next week's episode. Occasionally, the program is subtitled "New Project Factory" and SMAP members appear on the show, participating in the taping of short games. It was originally created to let young, rookie or "baby" television producers come up with ideas for a new segment for SMAPxSMAP. At the end of the program, SMAP members decide if the game can be used as a new segment on SMAPxSMAP. See more
